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.
The ‘Arm Cuff’ (and I say ‘arm cuff’ because it was technically a bangle and I was just fortunate to be small enough to wear it as an arm cuff) was from Lovisa.
The clutch was from target.
The ‘cape’ was actually a maxi vest from Supré which I added to give a more modern and on-trend touch to an otherwise vintage dress/look.
And the vintage gloves (My favorite part of this entire outfit) were from Lincraft.
