This outfit screams 70's love.  On my day off I visited the local thrift store and made out like a bandit.  I fell in love with this gorgeous felt hat, especially the flower detail. The clogs are basically the score of a lifetime - why anyone would NOT want them in their wardrobe is beyond me...... needless to say, I'm more than thrilled to be able to give them a home in MY closet!
I realized after the shoot that this outfit bears a striking resemblance to that worn by Jodie Foster's character in Taxi Driver (see below for the comparison). I didn't really have her in mind when I styled the look but perhaps it emerged subconsciously. Either way, I am happy with the end result.

(forever 21 lace blouse, bustier, f21 wedge, h&m fringe bag)


I decided to add a touch of lace to this predominately black ensemble; it helps to lighten up the overall dark vibe.  I scored these amazing faux leather leggings in NYC and I'm obsessing - I have endless ideas about how to style them. 
I know I tend to sport this fringe bag in many of my photos but it's become a critical element of my personal style.  It just seems to complete 90% of the outfits I put together. It adds an element of depth, I've become known as the girl with the fringed leather bag, haha! 
Do you have one statement piece that you'll wear to the grave?

cheap monday spring 2011









(Cheap Monday Spring 2011 Stockholm Fashion Week)

I love the simplicity of these looks taken from Cheap Monday's 2011 show.  Sheer and cropped never looked so fresh.

(forever 21 shorts, h&m blouse, jeffrey campbell shoes, vintage bag & belt)


This was an outfit I wore over the weekend to the Burchfield Penney Art Center's opening reception.  I thought it to be a perfect summer white outfit to accentuate my deepening tan (I'm normally terribly pale).  The belt and bag I found during my weekly thrift adventures.
