Rising Hemlines: Part 1

IMG_9734

I recently took a bunch of dresses to a sweet little seamstress to be shortened. I felt like a floozy asking to take all these hemlines up but it was so worth it. This shirt dress was mid-calf length; awkward with a belt, sack-like without. Shortening was just the trick! More to come.
PS: do you like these winter wedges? They’re pretty amazing if I don’t say so myself.

Navy Gravy

IMG_8624I got navy tights. It’s about time. I feel like they’ve been missing from my wardrobe for a lifetime. Navy feels very fresh this season, don’t you think? Shout out to Ms. Darcy from Hello Luvvy for taking these pictures; she also posted this lovely recap of our (what is becoming a monthly) collaboration. Stay tuned for another glittering (hint!) project!

winter is, err, coming

It’s November. And it’s starting to feel like it. Layers save the day, per usual. I had a few meetings in Bentonville and borrowed Elysian‘s alley to capture my ootd. Later, I walked into a gas station and a lovely gentleman with a tear tattoo on his face asked me if I was from LA because I looked “trendy”.

It’s a beautiful time of year here in NW Arkansas. I will be the first to admit that I’m not a huge fan of cold weather. Layers stress me out. I’m already a bag lady – add coats, scarves, gloves, socks – it’s too much!

Restless Peace

I love a good collaboration. When Ms. Darcy from Hello Luvvy asked if I would join her in the cemetery wearing florals, I didn’t hesitate to say “yes”! {Thanks Darcy & Luvvys!} When we met, the first thing we noticed was that we had both styled our vintage florals with a brooch at the collar.
It was a lovely, warm day. The cemetary was nothing resembling creepy and the geese followed us around expecting crumbs.
On Darcy: dress – cheap thrills / boots – savoir faire
On me: dress/sunnies – grey dog / boots – plato’s closet / brooch – cheap thrills / snake earrings – a gift
