All Black

Hello! If there's one thing that I know about fashion, it would be that you really can't go wrong with an all-black outfit of the day. For this look, I kept that idea in mind and pulled out a couple of my favorite pieces of black clothing from my wardrobe. I started styling the look around this embroidered black top. I love its playful silhouette, polka dot mesh texture and pretty floral embroidery. I paired it with a little black circle skirt that mimicked its playful, breezy silhouette.

I added a punch of color to the look with a pair of burnt orange lace-up heels. Simple accessories contributed to the style of the look; I grabbed a chic pair of tortoiseshell sunglasses, black hoop earrings, a golden vintage watch and a green vintage clutch.

Head to Toe Vintage

Hello! I recently thrifted this beautiful pink dress and couldn't be any happier about it. I think I'd even go so far as to say that it's my favorite item that I've thrifted all year. I spotted it a few weeks ago at a Goodwill here in Richmond and its pretty, light pink color initially drew me in. When I picked it up off the rack, its true vintage 1970s style and sheer pink sleeves also captured my attention. It's much harder to thrift authentic vintage from the 1970s and to find a dress from the 70s as beautiful as this one truly feels like striking gold. And for less than $10? I internally let out a huge "YAS" at the thrift shop. 

I played up its retro flair for this look by styling it in a head-to-toe vintage ensemble. A mod pair of orange creamsicle earrings, aviator glasses and an obnoxious pink velvet scrunchie all enhanced the vintage style of the dress. A pretty pink vintage purse and silly vintage heels pulled the look together.

It's a Jungle Out There

Hello! I recently spotted this LBD at a local RVA thrift shop and quickly fell in love with it. Let me just tell you, this little black dress is not your average little black dress. Its subtle zebra print design and obnoxious feather boa trim make it a little black dress unlike any other that I've ever owned. I'm a huge fan of feather boa trim so this dress felt like quite the thrift score.

For this look, I styled it with my latest Jeffrey Campbell purchase: these swoon-worthy burgundy platform boots. I've been practically wearing them on repeat since adding them to my wardrobe a few weeks ago. I mean c'mon though, could they be any more perfect? Their ridiculous five inch heel height, rich wine-color and luxe velvet texture defines them as the shoes of my dreams.

I kept accessories relatively minimal to let my dress and shoes take center stage. I slipped a faux fur leopard print scrunchie on my wrist, grabbed a trendy pair of pink shades and a silver bag and called it a look.

Sunday Brunch Looks

Hello! My friend, Taisha, recently visited me in Richmond and of course, grabbing Sunday brunch together was a must while she was in town. We managed to squeeze in a shoot to capture our looks with my favorite photographer, Rachel Dwyer, before heading off to brunch.

I decided to play it a little risqué with my look and pulled out a vintage leopard print teddy to style my look around. I threw on a little black circle skirt over it and slipped into a pair of black booties to subtly tone down the sex appeal of the leopard print lingerie. 

I felt as though the look was missing something so I decided to add just a touch of color with a teal pair of pompom earrings and matching cat-eye shades. My rhinestone "SEXY" choker necklace gave the look the perfect hint of dramatic flair.

Taisha stuck to a similar color palette for her look, choosing to don a sheer black dress over a black bralette and denim mini.

Seventies Street Style

Hello! I'm forever inspired by the seventies when styling looks so it's no surprise that I was instantly drawn to this free-spirited dress when I spotted it on eShakti's website. Its colorful floral embroidery and breezy sleeves definitely mimic the fashions that reigned supreme almost fifty years ago. Its retro influence paired with its flattering silhouette and versatile navy blue color make it quite the beauty.

I played up the vintage flair of the dress for this look by styling it with a platform pair of denim heels, a pretty green vintage purse and seventies-esque shades. A cheery pair of yellow pompom earrings added a touch of fun to the look.
