Frozen Floral

In my last post I talked about the awesome vintage fashion event I attended. The weather was fabulous that day so I decided to break out this awesome silk reconstructed vintage dress I just added to my inventory. This gorgeous silk piece is covered in a pastel floral print. I threw on a cropped sweater and a leather jacket for the perfect evening look. I accessorized this super flirty dress with black tights and black booties for a grungier style. Check out some more detailed shots below.

My new favorite necklace...white is so SPRING!!!

What do you get when you put eclectic urban fashion, creative enlightened minds, and a bunch of fabulous vintage clothing in one room? An event that is so dangerous and explosive that it must be held "underground". If you missed The Underground held on Saturday, February 18th at Moca DC, really missed out. But don't fret, I'll give you a recap of the awesome fashion you missed.

Color Block Love

Lately I've been having a love affair with neutral colors. Taupe, Brown, and Grey have been my signature colors. As lovely as these simple color combinations can be, I've been feeling like a total BORE! With this look I found myself going down the same path of simplicity so I decided to add these awesome burgundy knee highs to spice up my look. What do you think?

Tan and Black Color Block Dress: Vintage, Elan Renegade Vintage, get it here
Blazer: Vintage
Necklace: Vintage
Rings: borrowed from my sister
Burgundy Knee High Socks: Marshalls
Bag: Vintage, Elan Renegade Vintage
Shoes: Jeffrey Campbell Tapestry Litas (my go-to shoes)

In A Lost Society

Since I missed out on NYFW last weekend I had to make it up to myself by going out to celebrate the birthday of one of my closest friends. We planned an extravagant evening which eventually got botched. Instead we substituted our plans and ventured out the The Lost Society on 14th & U. The down time I had waiting for the birthday girl made me realize how gorgeous the decor was. The eclectic mix of vintage, classic, and modern designs was perfect and really got me excited. Check out some of the snapshots I got in between reminiscent stories and tasty martinis.
