Anonymous asked: Have you ever made a post on what you would consider wardrobe essentials?

Click here for a post on what I consider wardrobe essentials

A few items I list are:

  • Gingham collared shirt
  • Crisp collared white dress shirt
  • Striped long-sleeved t-shirt
  • Two denim shirts: one light washed and one dark
  • Two mid-length a-line skirts in neutral colours: one light and one dark
  • Black pumps
  • Three pairs of skinny jeans: one dark, one medium wash, and one distressed
  • A black pair of skinny pants
  • A neutral, fitted boyfriend blazer (I use my grey ones most)
  • A few bold statement necklaces will go a long way

And to that list I would like to add (relevant for fall):

  • Classic trench coat
  • A badass leather jacket
  • A comfy pair of sneakers that go with everything (Chucks or Keds or Toms)
  • A few cozy cable knit sweaters
  • Little black dress

New day, new scarf. But pretty much everything else is the same: leather jacket, red lipstick, Clubmasters.

I saw a tartan scarf at Zara, but instead of buying it for $35-ish, I made one for myself with about $9 in materials. I like this new sewing skilled I acquired! (Although sewing a scarf is probably the EASIEST thing a person could ever sew.)

I don’t think I could ever stop loving polka dots.

I was debating whether or not to wear this radioactive neon skirt today — I thought it might be too bright and attention-grabbing. I never like being the center of attention, so I was very close to changing just before I stepped out the door this morning. As I suspected, every single person I walked past today had a “WTF” look on their face. OH WELL. I still think it’s awesome and I don’t regret my decision at all.

You gotta just bite the bullet sometimes, have some fun, and not give a fuck what anyone thinks.

I’ve only worn this skirt twice… does anyone want to buy it from me? Send me an email or ask and we’ll sort out details. I’m thinking $40 + shipping?

Another couple of photos from this shoot. It would be a shame to not post them, because I hate to waste pretty things. No photo left behind!

I finished my first sewing project! I’m not thrilled with how the skirt turned out, but for a first-timer, I think I did OK! The important thing is that I know exactly what I could do differently next time to make it better, so this was an amazing learning experience. I can’t wait to get started on my next one!

Doing that twirly stuff again, because why the heck not?

The weather is already so much cooler lately, and I’m bracing myself for the fall. The memory of last winter is still like a wound that hasn’t fully healed, so, as you can imagine, I am not looking forward to this year’s bitter cold.

Shoes and skirt both by modcloth. Chambray button up is from H&M (get a similar one here)

I feel like this is Paris in the early 1960s. Oh la la and shit, you know?

Anonymous asked: Where do you go dressed like that? I love it and I'd love to dress fancy but it would definitely not work at work/school/or anywhere basically!

Hello! Honestly, I try to “dress fancy” nearly everywhere I go: meeting friends, going out to eat, and, yes, even to work sometimes.

In that yellow skirt, for example, I went to get a haircut, go shopping and then meet a friend for dinner at her house. Not a huge deal. It took me a while to figure out that every day is a special occasion and I should dress accordingly. I never save things for a special occasion. What a waste of pretty things! 

It’s not even about “being fancy,” though. It’s about putting a little bit of extra effort getting dressed, which gives you a confidence boost.

"Fancy" doesn’t mean designer clothes or the latest trendy thing or that you have to spend hours prepping. To me, "fancy" is all about confidence. Fancy is a feeling and fancy is an attitude.

If something makes you feel fancy, just do it. Because you deserve to feel that way, no matter who you are, how much money you have, or what your body looks like. 

One of the best things about “dressing fancy” is that everyone will want to stop to talk to you! One dude thought I was someone famous!
