I am so ready for spring already! We have been getting a few teasing days where it gets above 60 here lately. I am so obsessed by the color of these Stuart Weitzman boots, it’s the perfect powder blue for spring. I start to sing “Blue Suede Shoes” in my head every time I put them on. They’re perfect with a flowy white dress and a classic trench on a windy day.
This dress is super special to me. It comes from one of my favorite instashops in Sweden, Re-Edited Vintage. I’m so glad it is mine! The print is totally bizarre and disco inspired. It seems like it came off the pages of a 70s Hans Feurer shoot in Vogue Paris. Pieces like these remind me of how truly happy fashion and vintage make me. At least the clothes you love can still be a bright spot on a dark day.
These shoes I’ve had for so many years, and I love them to death. They are by Yves Saint Laurent (far pre-dating the abbreviated Saint Laurent name change) and have since been reproduced by the brand in a number of different variations. I still think they’re fabulous and often I wonder if I should try to get another pair. This pair on Nordstrom right now is my favorite. Outrageous, definitely, but who says that is a bad thing? Sometimes fashion has to be fun!
Sometimes the grind of a busy work week can really make it hard to find inspiration and get excited about fashion. That’s always something I struggle with when life gets too chaotic. Sometimes the best thing I can do is get my makeup on, put on a dress that makes me really happy, and go out for happy hour drink with Jeff! This dress inspires me because it was such a rare find…definitely what the magic of vintage is all about for me. My mom found this Mollie Parnis dress at a thrift store here in town. She gave it to me, which I am so thankful for! I love this dress, it’s one of the most glamorous pieces in my wardrobe.
