Audrey-esque

30th May 2012

today I was a little inspired…
by the one and only audrey hepburn“my look is attainable. women can look like audrey hepburn by flipping out their hair, buying the large sunglasses and the little sleeveless dresses”

Everything old is new again, where black, bows, and big glasses never go out of style.
My newest kate spade celina dress oozes Audrey-ness. Adding the big glasses, bright lips and piles of pearls helped seal the deal. 
Although I like color, a two-toned look can also make a stylish statement. The creme and black throughout creates a chic and classic vibe while the massive amounts of pearls and girlie over-the-top accessories keep it flirty.

girls who wear pearls

11th April 2012

women usually either love or hate pearls, but I personally love to be dripping in pretty girly pearls! 
so this outfit is centered around pretty statement pearls! take a peak and how I wore them.

Mixing mediums can be really fun and add interesting aspects to an outfit.
so when I decided to drape myself in pearls this morning, I made sure I added an unexpected edge to the look… a leather skirt and bright pumps!
pearls are great! they make you feel girlie… and like carrie bradshaw!
 
also, pilling on the pearls, or any statement necklace can be a really easy way to dress up a basic white button up.
the finishing touch, was bundling up in another key basic: a tan trench
 Trench: H&M (2010) (similar). Top: Basic White Button up, J.Crew. Bag: Kate Spade (Old). Pearls: H&M and My Grandmothers. Belt: Gold Braided, J.Crew. Skirt: Pleated Leather, H&M.
