I am back from New York City. I'm both sad that my trip is over, but also happy to be home. My trip was incredible and definitely had a substantial impact on my fashion point of view.
This is what I wore today out to lunch, and then on a successful trip to Goodwill. I found some really cool pieces, that I will be sharing very soon. I made this skirt out of material from a vintage dress. I loved the red polka dot print- I have a bit of an addiction to stripes and polka dots. I automatically find piece of clothing ten times more attractive if it's emblazoned with one of these two prints. My lovely hound-dog Eleanor decided to crash my photo session, and I took advantage of the situation. She is quite photogenic. My other dog, Domino, would also be great in photos, but she's terrified of my Nikon D40. Bummer.
This is a close-up of the scarf that I wore as a belt. It's vintage, from Goodwill. I adore the Liberty of London-esque butterfly illustrations. And I didn't think I could go wrong with the dollar-fifty price tage. I thought I would try it a belt, rather than a scarf. Seeing as how the length is really awkward- odd length and a strange rectangular shape.
I got the idea to wear my scarf like this from this picture from British Vogue. As soon as I saw this picture, I thought of it.
This is my new bag that I bought in NYC. I love it's blue color- I don't have anything like it! I fell in love with it's texture. I really like the pucker-y, checked, and stitched material.
I wore these oxfords the whole time I was in New York City, and I just realized that I never really posted a close-up of them. I picked them up at T.J. Maxx last year, and have recently fallen in love with them. They are definitely my go-to flats!
