An outfit featuring a red dress from Dillards Outlet in Texas (or was it a JC Penny outlet?). and a pair of earrings from a friend who traveled to Jamaica. Any who after having this in my closet for over a year I stiil can’t decide if my favorite part of this dress is the slit, front pocket or the hoodie.
So you may or may not know this but everything in your closet has a story. Either you bought the item while travelling, or it was a gift, or it was payday and you felt liking blowing it all, whatever it is, it has story. The story to this dress? I’m new to Sydney and found myself in Parramatta for a blog shoot, and on my way home I bumped into a boutique that was having a sale. After picking through a ton of bright colored garments I bumped into this little beauty and fell in love. And let’s just say trying it on and looking in the mirror made me say “Yes” and “I do” all at once. Its minimalism at its best.This designer is a genius. I’ve always been one for mixing prints, fabrics, colors, layering, but lately I’m enjoying the effortless, Parisian chic of minimalism. You should try it.
This dress gave me the opportunity to FINALLY wear my Latin Marc by Marc Jacob rings (the really thin rings) from the NYC Book Marc store after having them in my closet for over a year. The other two rings were a gift ( from an awesome friend). I like them because they’re not gold or silver (love that trend) so they go with practically anything. Adding the white blazer to the dark blue dress gave it a slight nautical touch, which I liked because summer isn’t too far way.
An outfit featuring my pants from a Forever New outlet. The black tuxedo stripe on the sides makes them Menswear inspired (which I love) and the nude color adds a slightly equestrian touch.
A Simple red black and white ensemble. With a vintage red pencil skirt and my favorite socks which I had been looking for, for the longest time ever. Eventually found them at Target and got three pairs. The combat boot heels were a gift (from the best mother ever) As for the top and blazer I don’t remember where I got them. And of course some red lipstick.
