Wore a vintage silk dress (I shortened and removed the sleeves from) and J. Crew flats to the wedding of a dear friend. My tie-making abilities are coming along too as evidenced by Willie’s new custom tie!

Loved wearing this stunning vintage dress to a beautiful Colorado wedding. Even wore a vintage silk slip underneath. The design, detail, and fit on this piece are just superb! I rarely see this color, and loved wearing it.

Happy June!

Good friends from college Jax and Jeff married over the weekend. I was thrilled to make 8 bridesmaid dresses for the occasion (and wore one!). The dusty blue maxi strapless silhouette was flattering and comfortable with bright coral orange J. Crew flats. For the rehearsal I wore a 50 Dresses No. 1 Dress in black and white with Zara heels.

I don’t need an excuse to wear sparkly clothes, but it’s sort of extra-fun around the holidays. Love these Ann Taylor leather heels- faux snakeskin with a good party shine. Green mermaid-sparkle pants from NastyGal, Banana Republic silk shirt, J. Crew grey sweater, and a scarf I’m perma-borrowing from my mom. It’s vintage and I’m not sure where she got it but it’s always been a favorite because of the sparkle plaid, fringe, and a muted purple floral pattern.
