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

IMG_8386

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”.

What I Wore: Mohair & a Bowtie

what I wore: dress – thrifted miss dorby (find on ebay), mohair sweater via cheap thrills, bowtie – target, heels – forever21

When I mix patterns, (or prints or fabrics or colors) I try to lean towards whimsical, rather than take my outfit (or myself) too seriously. I love to have fun with my clothes/accessories but when taking a “risk”, I find it’s best to be light-hearted.

What I Wore: The Puffy Shirt

what I wore: blouse – vintage renditions, skinny jeans – gap thrifted, boots – steve madden, 2nd boots – asos, earrings – forever21

So if you watch Seinfeld, you will definitely remember the episode that Jerry is coerced into wearing the puffy shirt on The Today Show. I’m a Seinfeld fan (like most of us) and this shirt totally reminded me of that one. But slightly chicer.

What I Wore: Cream Puff

what I wore: dress – impressions (seen here), blazer – antonio melani, heels – kelsi dagger, earrings – vintage from grey dog, bracelet – house of harlow (similar)
This is a dress for all seasons. In August, I wore it to my post-wedding brunch. In December, I wore it with black tights. I love shape, the color and of course the bow.  Paired with a muted plaid blazer and my new favorite earrings, I thought it proved its versatility.

What I Wore: Spring Layers

what I wore: jacket – vintage after six, blouse – vintage, collar – urban outfitters, skirt – kimichi blue, platforms – bcbg
I like outfits like these because they’re fun but also professional. I think I’m going to get a lot of wear out of this kimichi blue skirt I picked up at (where else?) cheap thrills!
