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!

Fun quick trip to Vegas for a great wedding at the Neon Museum.

Traveled in Banana Republic coated black jeans, Gil Torres booties, S.W.O.R.D. leather jacket, fancy Magaschoni cashmere hoodie sweater, vintage silk scarf, Brixton hat, Kate Spade purse, and a fantastic new leather trunk carry on with vintage detailing.

Wore a Leifsdottir black dress and Aldo nude heels to the nuptials.

Loved debuting my new 50 Dresses lace and fringe tunics! Available in black and white, this versatile piece can layer over a solid first layer for a more modest streetwear look, or stands on it’s own as a bikini cover-up!  Blender’s Monte Carlo sunglasses are my new favorite eye protection. Lululemon top and Midori Bikinis Wild Hearts bottom complete my beach wear look. Also loving my new GiBlack sea green abarcas! They continue to be my favorite summer shoe.

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 love getting dressed up for New Year’s Eve. Found these great vintage gold shoes at a thrift store the other day. Wolford tights, Geren Ford peplum silk top, vintage belt, and a little purple skirt I made from vintage dress my grandma passed down to me. Happy New Year!

Pre-holiday Sparkle

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.

New boots!

GiBlack in NYC has some amazing new Spanish pony boots in stock now! Imported from amazing boot factories in Menorca, they are so comfortable and really very unique from the other fall offerings I’ve seen. Check out the FB page for photos of the boots (they have black too, as well as some other great styles!) or the website for more info. Yes, this is the same company importing my favorite ABARCAS! Spanish footwear, all the way. Worn with thrifted wool skirt and shirt and an awesome thrifted silk blazer/jacket.
