Outfit of the Day: Valfre Dress

Valfré always has the cutest clothes. From my experience, sadly, they can run a bit small, so it can be difficult for me to find pieces that fit (I’m somewhere between a true medium and large).

Miraculously, this dress was on super sale and I was able to snag one in my size before they sold out *sobs* The dress is made of a stretchy material (good for busty girls like myself), although I will say it is VERY short, so I decided to pair with some tights just in case 😉

Outfit of the Day: Sassy Sweatshirt by Valfré + Magazine Launch!

 I’m back with another shoot from Pale Girl Photography! I absolutely ADORE shooting with Taylor, she perfectly understands my blog aesthetic and really knows how to capture that film-like appearance with digital equipment. It’s hard to believe we’ve only known each other a few months, I truly feel like we were destined to cross paths both as colleagues and as friends.

Outfit of the Day: Cattoo Debut by Pale Girl Photography

I had the absolute privilege to shoot with Taylor of Pale Girl Photography last week for an outfit post, and she captured some excellent shots, especially of my tattoo.  I’ve been a huge fan of her work since I stumbled across her Instagram page a few months ago, and we had the chance to grab coffee a few times and decided to finally join forces on a shoot. Maybe I’ve just been getting super lucky, but the people I’ve collaborated with recently have been a joy to work with, and this shoot was no exception.

Outfit of the Day: Springtime Sunsets with Frenchie Vintage (Sponsored)

I know I talk about this a lot (or maybe not enough??), but anxiety is a bitch.  Even with Adavan I still feel like I’m struggling to be a normal, functioning human being on certain days.  Having anxiety when you are in a field like fashion or blogging where you’re expected to be a ~people person~ makes it incredibly difficult to find the willpower to network. (Also, does anybody else feel like “network” is such a dirty word?? Like, meeting people for the sole purpose of working together, it seems like such a bizarre social construct and sort of a nauseating byproduct of capitalism??)

THE WHITEPEPPER Spring/Summer ’15 Lookbook: A Danish Dream

I’m a little tardy to the party, but whoa, I am enamored with THE WHITEPEPPER‘s latest summer editorial. THE WHITEPEPPER is one of my favorite London brands; they are most known for utilizing eye-catching novelty prints (obsessing over that firecracker popsicle print above) with a touch of vintage flair and an emphasis on street style appeal.   The brand also takes a firm stance against the mistreatment of animals, which suits a cat lady like myself just fine.

Outfit of the Day: Retro Spring Style

I’m so sorry to have been on hiatus for so long! But good things are in store:  I finally bought a DSLR camera + tripod + remote. Which means I’ll no longer be using my shotty iPhone camera for outfit shots, and I won’t have to rely on anyone to take photos for me anymore. (Plus, I’m really awkward when I have pictures taken by other people, kind of like that episode of Friends when Chandler has trouble naturally smiling in photos).

My awkward factor didn’t completely dissapate in these photos, as Jordan and I were on the way to dinner, and I asked Jordan to take a few shots of my outfits. I’d say he did a damn good job for a first timer; he was so into taking pictures that he kept taking them the rest of dinner. He took some pretty unsightly photos of me eating that’ll make their place in a scrapbook one day.

We’ve finally got some Spring weather down in Charleston. I’ve been aching for this moment since I first started buying pastel dresses and sandals in January (I like to plan ahead). I went into Forever 21 after work the other day, and I swooned over this strawberry print blouse. Isn’t it just perfect for Spring? They didn’t have a small (*insert cry-face*), but the oversized fit allowed me to size up to a medium without the blouse looking completely weird. I may ask my friend Marie if she wants to go strawberry-picking again this year; now I’m getting a photo theme in mind (I’m such a dork).
I’m also a big fan of contrast in my outfits. When wearing something loose & flowing up top, I prefer to wear a tighter fit on the bottom. It really brings attention to my figure (yowsas!) and creates a balance to the ensemble.  The airiness of the shirt is a great juxtaposition to the weight of the denim below.

 Outfit Details:
Strawberry Blouse – Forever 21
Super High-Waisted Jean Shorts – eBay
Flower Crown – DIY
Platform Shoes – ModCloth
Fox Ring – Forever 21
Scallop Bag – ASOS

 

 

Every time I wear these shorts, I feel like I should be on the set of Now & Then–not to mention paired with my curly pixie cut. Retro chic, baby!
I hope everyone had a nice holiday. The kids around here are on Spring Break this week, so I have a feeling that I’ll be seeing a lot of action at work in the next few days. I’ll be sure to make time for posts though, honest!
‘Til next time, kittens.
