Look Book

Fashion and what I wear is one of the few things in my life that I strictly do for myself. Most people dress for others. I dress like no one is watching. My clothing picks directly affect how I feel and vice versa. Use this look book to inspire you. Get ideas, see what is in trend, how to put looks together, and where the good places to shop are if you are on a budget.  It will inspire your creative side while showing you a little slice of my life. Check back for weekly updates! :)

OHBSu0kli7531IlWSXoBxEtcZtRfyDrE5VrZ0TMwPKgPairing leather with ruffles adds structure to the femininity of the dress. Mixing leather and floral is a perfect combination.

The floral balances out the toughness of the leather, while the leather adds a sharpness to the soft floral pattern.

russianfur5I am not a big proponent of fur as you can probably guess. This coat is a very cool vintage piece. It was made locally in Kansas City.

russianfurEarrings – Name Brand Clothing $2.99

GN29aRYSZjASW8xc8zJ99fnrS6jG6M2No-MTIybYFRkIf you are wearing an extravagant piece like this fur coat, pair it with a simple pair of pants/skirt. Let it take the spotlight.


russianfur6If you do purchase fur, consider buying a vintage piece. This helps to reduce the amount of fur garments being created.

I’m Not Sorry 2/20/15

vfA1W59n8Y3lLy8BaiPo1Le5jNXqC3X2Oo28gpU2eFEWhatever you are wearing, wear it with confidence. You don’t need a permission slip.

FCyjvPbI02YZYdcm_wKBw6Tkyn54Gh3L-v1Sf9BFIeoIf you get nervous about mixing prints, break up the look with something solid.

i.e. If you’re mixing tops and bottoms, pair it with a  solid blazer to tone it down.

F-Y9upNllJ_QIdDl1KdaQ9-pzuTaGMVIDoIMDQHe5e0Distribute your prints evenly across your outfit. For example, your prints should be on top and bottom.

The more confined the print mixing, the busier it will look.

lLbTH3cyJTLhYpUcmvqxSyZLtl6fzwrM2H5kVIyOVgIAs I’m sure you know by now, I’m a big fan of layering…especially when the weather is finicky.

I always have an extra flannel with me. They look with almost everything.
