Wearing: Firework Reveries

Wearing: Built By Wendy dress; Urban Outfitters tights; Asos oxfords; vintage belt and Coach bag; H&M hat; Forever 21 layered pearl bracelet and cocktail ring; flower bracelet c/o Taara; pearl earrings and bracelet purchased from China; Revlon polish in ‘Chili.’

Who says you can’t wear something so white and delicate this season? I’ve adored Built by Wendyfor quite some time, with the pricetag being my only deterrent. When I heard their Williamsburg, Brooklyn converted to a permanent outlet, I went running and found this dress, previously priced at more than $250 for only $40! The cut and shape is reminiscent of The Secret Garden meets mu mu meets vintage nurse but is so modern with this firework sparkle detail. I know lady rules suggest dress for your best features, but I’ll admit this shape and delicate fabric, as vague and loose as it is, is one of my favorites. There’s just something so free and childish about it.

Speaking of delicate fabrics,  super excited to be attending the Eric Daman for DKNY legwear event tonight with Ms. Zucker and as a lifelong lover of stockings and tights, I can’t wait to see what’s on display. Follow me on Twitter for updates while I’m there and a post here coming soon! xoxo.

Wearing: Denim Darling

wearing: denim shirt: Marshalls, striped shirt: H&M, skirt: Forever 21, patent leather wedge pumps: Zara, bag: vintage Coach thrifted from Vice Versa (brooklyn), earrings/necklace/scarf/sunglasses: Forever 21, bracelets: Forever 21 and thrifted, bow brooch: vintage thrifted from upstate, nails: Essie ‘chubby cheeks.’

denim shirts are just about the most fundamental, versatile top to have in one’s closet. they’re just as universally matching as jeans and i especially love when paired with classic polka dotted prints. the colder weather has me endlessly experimenting with added layers for more personality and warmth and additionally helps pull the other black elements in today's ensemble all together! xoxo.
