Double-Breasted Velvet

Velvet_double_breasted_4
          Mockneck (also similar here) / Similar Jacket (also here) / Overalls¬†(Similar here) / Similar Slides   I LOVE VELVET! Especially vintage velvet. Remember our posts here and here? As mentioned on our instagram, we've been trying to purchase and incorporate much more vintage and secondhand items in our looks in order to support longer life cycles for our garments. I borrowed this blazer from our mom, and by borrowed, I mean permanently ūüėč. I most likely rolled my eyes ūüôĄ when she got it years ago, but in my defense, what thirteen year old would truly understand the fabulosity that is this purple velvet double-breasted blazer?! It's not the most functional pieces of outerwear as the buttons take FOREVER to...

Pastel Pointelle

PASTEL_POINTELLE_3
            Sunnies / Top / Watch / Bag (old)- Similar here / Nails / Jeans (old)- Similar here / Shoes (on sale) Still very happy about the quantity of pastel on the runways this fashion month. Especially for someone who only dips their pinky toe in when it comes to color, pastels are an easy way to switch up my repertoire (which mainly consists of denim and different shades of black and grey). The fact that these tones are continuing throughout Spring is V exciting! This top was a random purchase during a quick run into HM with a friend. I have severely limited my fast fashion purchases, but slipped up when I saw the feminine pointelle detail mixed...

Wrap Skirt

STRIPE_WRAP_SKIRT_PASTEL_PINK_2
        Sunnies / Sweater / Crop Top / Skirt / Watch / Bracelet / Bag- also here / Shoes   We had such an incredible time exploring San Francisco, especially the Wharf and the Palace of the Fine Arts Theatre! Coincidentally, they both were amazing backdrops to shoot one of my favorite Fall looks. I'm coming to realize that blush is appropriate year round, season after season as long as it's complimented by the correct colors. This skirt screams Fall with raw edge and earthy tones....

Rock On

Rock_Tee_Tailored_Shorts
  Sunnies / Shirt (Similar here) / Shorts (Similar sale version here) / Shoes /Bag (Old)- Similar here   Fortunately, we both work in fields that don't require a "business casual" dress code. I have never been a fan of suits (blazers with jeans, excluded), so working for a company that allows stylish, casual dress, is a blessing. After attending the Classic East concert, which we expanded upon here, the ultimate test was seeing if I could dress up one of the many¬†rock tees we got, into a work appropriate ensemble. The Doobie Brothers had a heather grey ground, The Eagles had a powder blue ground, and the event tee was charcoal, so opting for the black tee was the...

Live-in Linen

Live_in_linen
        A version of this linen outfit was my lazy/casual 4th of July cover up, and never did I think I'd make a look out of it. I've had these pieces forever and my mother and aunt had them forever before me, but they've always seemed more lounge-y and "off-duty" to me. I was reminded just how perfect they are for summer when it exceeded 90 degrees and there was NOTHING else I wanted to wear. Unfortunately, the hat and linens are hand me downs, but I scoured the internet for similar pieces.¬†See below! Hat (Vintage)- Similar here / Sunglasses- Crap Eyewear / Top (Vintage)- Similar here, here and here / Pants (Old)- Similar here / Shoes- Marc Fisher...

Stripes // Bright Pop of Color

stripes-color-3
            This sweater is one of the brighter things I've purchased, but I had a lot of fun styling it! It was a last minute impulse buy during the & Other Stories sale and definitely a good choice. The majority of items in this look are no longer available, but I linked VERY similar versions below! Hat / Coat / Sweater (Not avail.)- Similar here / Tunic (Old Zara)- Similar here / Skirt (Vintage)- Similar here / Boots¬†/ Bag / Stickers...

Buffalo Plaid + Faux Fur

      I found this buffalo plaid shirt dress on super sale last weekend and I've already worn it three times. The black and grey combo called out to me¬†since those are the core colors in my wardrobe, especially this time of year. It's also softer than jammies and the perfect length for otk boots. Stay tuned because there will 100% be more looks with this gem. Thoughts? Beanie (borrowed because sadly I left mine on a bus)- My fave is Love Your Melon / Sunglasses- Karen Walker / Vest (Old)- Topshop (Similar here) / Shirtdress- & Other Stories¬†(avail. in store) / Leggings- Spanx / Boots- Stuart Weitzman / Bag- Rebecca Minkoff...

Cables and Cold Shoulders

Cold-Shoulder-Cable-Knit-3
          I've always been a lover of chunky cable knits.¬†The cold shoulder trend on the other hand, not so much.¬†I try to stay away from any garment that aims to draw that much attention to any one body part. I'm not particularly self conscious of my shoulders, and always considered them to be a fairly innocuous¬†body part, but I'd never quite lost my skepticism of this trend. That is, however, until I tried this specific one. Different aspects of the garment can definitely help or hurt the entire look. For example, if the cold shoulder is too open or too closed. Even the neckline makes a difference. I much prefer this style with a built up neck. Basically, whether this trend works,...

New Frayvorite Jeans

I did it. I made my dream jeans without spending a dime. Fortunately I had the perfect pair to begin with, but even if you have to thrift a great, inexpensive pair, this is the easiest update and all you need are a pair of scissors. Read the DIY post here, and note that even though the video suggests using a needle and thread for a few tacks, I didn't reinforce the seams and they're holding up totally fine.
