First off, I LOVE your style! What I would like to know is where do you find these amazing dresses and skirts that you have?

Thank you so much! *blushing*

I shop at Kate Spade and Modcloth a lot, but I’m learning how to sew soon and I can’t wait to make my own skirts! I love1950/1960s style, so if I see an a-line, chances are, I’ll buy it. I’m so predictable!



This is why I was ignoring Tumblr all last week: I was in Berlin for a work trip. It was a short trip, and I’d love to go back one day. The city has good vibes, and I really like that.

Seeing as I was travelling, here are some travel essentials I always make sure to pack:

  • Big tote bag: Big enough to fit a DSLR, a light sweater and a big bottle of water. Also because I hate backpacks. Nothing says, “I’m a tourist” like a backpack.
  • Comfortable walking shoes: Obviously. You don’t want to miss out on stuff because your feet hurt.
  • Little black dress: You can wear it anywhere and never be over- or under-dressed. You can easily transition it from going on day trips to wearing it to dinner.
  • Light chambray button-up: You can wear it with anything and use it as a cover-up if you get chilly.
  • One statement necklace: Wear it on the plane. It makes a bare-bones travel outfit look a bit more special.

One more thing: I never wear crummy clothes to fly. You can be comfortable without resorting to yoga pants or sweats. On my flight to Germany, I wore a simple jersey knit dress. It was super comfortable, but more importantly, my luggage was very late to arrive, so I didn’t have the clothes I packed to wear to a business event I had to attend. Could you imagine going to a business event in sweat pants? HELLS NO. Moral of the story: Wear nice/comfortable clothes to fly in case your luggage gets lost or delayed so you won’t get stuck wearing shit.

GOSH IT’S HOT OUT. But I’m not complaining. I also need a nap.

I like that you have to squint or stand far away to see the pattern on my dress.

Sorry for the lack up updates! I’ve been away in Berlin for the past week!

Oh hey, it’s one-paperdoll again. Who thinks she should buy a BMW 2002?


This yellow skirt is 100% drama. And when it comes to clothes, I love drama!

I love old things and old cars. This car is a graceful, majestic old girl and she has a real personality. Her name is Peggy and you should meet her some day!

These may be my favourite photos burntpixels has ever taken of me. Thank you :)

Thank you so much for the tutorial! I was actually fairly surprised you agreed to create this post based on a stranger's request. I'm really looking forward to any other style advice you have to offer :) thanks again!

I’m happy to help and I love when people send me messages!


Last weekend, I was invited to a baptism and had no idea what to wear. I have never been to a baptism, so I didn’t know what kind of dress code was required.

My little black dress (LBD) came to the rescue. As one of the most versatile pieces of clothing ever invented, every girl should have one. What they say about the LBD is true: When you’re wearing one, you can never be under-dressed or over-dressed. Preach.

HOW TO BUILD A LEGO WARDROBE: I recently got an ask about some advice on wearing one item of clothing many different ways, so here goes!

In this photoset, there are nine different looks using just two skirts. But notice how every single top I wear with the white skirt I can also wear with the black skirt. Everything is interchangeable, just like Lego.

I spend more money on skirts than I do on dresses because skirts are infinitely more versatile: You can wear them with more things and therefore, wear them more often without looking repetitive – you get more value for your money.

These two skirts get the most use of all the skirts in my closet: their neutral colours and simple design mean they can be paired with just about anything. They can also be dressed up or down pretty easily.

When you’re shopping for tops, think about how many bottoms you own that you can wear it with and vice versa. The more combinations you can make, the more value you get from one item of clothing.

The key to making the most of your clothes is investing in good staples that can be worn in many different ways. Here are a few of my favourite basic staples that helped me build a Lego wardrobe:

  • 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

If you have any more questions about this topic or any others, don’t be shy to ask me!

Right when the above photo was being taken, some creepy motherfucker kept trying to hit on me in the worst way possible and I couldn’t do anything but laugh awkwardly. He said, “YOU COULD BE MY WIFE” and a whole bunch of other things that made me feel super weird.

Ugh.
