Seventies Nostalgia

Hello! Has anyone else been experiencing unusually pleasant warm weather? We have been for the past couple weeks here in Richmond and I love being able to break out all of my spring looks. For this warm weather look, I pulled out a little black romper from my wardrobe. I love the lace texture and flattering silhouette. I wanted to create a sense of seventies nostalgia within this look so I paired a mustard yellow knit shawl and denim platform heels with the romper. I further enhanced the free-spirited mood of the look with a retro suitcase, western belt, boho jewelry and a yellow pair of aviator shades.

Stepping into Spring in StyleWe


Hello! I recently received this dress courtesy of StyleWe to showcase on my blog and am utterly and completely in love with it. In fact, I wore it just a couple days after opening it up in the mail. There's a distinct oriental influence shown through the dress' floral on black print and kimono collar neckline that I really love. And how absolutely perfect is it for spring? This is StyleWe's "Multicolor Floral A-line Frill Sleeve Midi Dress" and it retails for $67.15 here. 

For this look, I was going for a sort of "nineties pop star meets fifties/sixties chick" vibe so I styled a pair of purple butterfly shades and lively green purse with the look. A couple turqoise rings, a swipe of futuristic pink lipstick and a vintage belt pulled the look together.
