oh boy! i feel that i cannot start this post any other way than to say how truly happy and excited i am to be a style icon! that is so cool!!!! and i really appreciate all the people on here who are always giving me feedback and support because that’s what has helped my style to evolve and grow! not to mention all the great inspiration i get from looking at everyone’s photos here. on a daily basis, no less! hehe.
it’s funny, i actually gave myself permission to dress like a complete slob yesterday after i found out. it was an odd reaction, i suppose, but i think it was that combined with the sudden change in the weather. it was kinda sunny and nice before, but yesterday was all gray and gloom. i just stayed inside and looked out the window instead. and did homework. ugh!
but today i am ok with the rain. it gave me another opportunity to wear this dress. and wearing this dress gave me an opportunity to sport two new items: my ladylike vintage boater hat, and this incredible vintage scalloped edge sassoon blazer! i bought the jacket (obvs inspired by chloe) and decided to keep it in the closet for fall, but i like the way it goes with my dress. er, i dunno, maybe a little too matchy matchy. for some reason, i have been avoiding the whole matching colors unless they’re neutrals (like black with black). it’s part of my quest to master color. so now i think i prefer complimentary colors. blah, blah.
i look very kentucky derby ready, no? i wish it was warm outside so i could fix myself a mint julep!
