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.

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: The Quintessential Fall Dress

IMG_3328

what I wore: dress vintage st simon via grey dog, sunnies – potter’s house, socks/earrings/platforms – forever21
I got this dress last winter at Grey Dog. I’m not sure I even wore it last year, it screams Autumn which makes me feel like I should wear it in the fall or not at all. Anyway, if one can manage to fit it into the rotation, it’s so very cute and fun and quintessentially fall.

What I Wore: Fall Brights

what I wore: dress – mrs. dorby via grey dog (seen here), socks – forever21, pumps – jessica simpson, sunglasses – asos, earrings – vintage from in retrospect

Someone else took a picture of me! I know it’s difficult to get used to. I love this sweet little dress from Grey Dog. I think the black background makes the bright floral really transitional.
