Minimal Everything

I’ve been wearing some unusual stuff for me lately, like the shirt from yesterday (I tend to wear things long with pants) and this very loose dress.  I actually wore this on Saturday night, it was my friends birthday and we went to The Melting Pot for dessert and drinks.  My knee’s been bothering me a lot because of the constant rain so I actually changed out of these heels into slightly lower ones that I just got.  I’ll photograph them soon!

It’s interesting — and freeing — to wear a dress this minimalist and loose.  I also didn’t expect this to look very good when I tried it on in H&M last week but I found myself liking it.  And I think the color sold me a bit too, it’s a vibrant navy.  I even kept my jewelry minimal, I wore plain silver hoops for the first time in years and just one small bangle.

Recreating The Cape

My dear friends,

A year ago today is when I took the first real photos (not in the mirror) for this blog.  I thought I’d celebrate by updating the look.

I took these photos over the weekend before the biiiiig snow.  I guess it really is time to retire my stilettos for the winter, snow and more snow in the forecast for the foreseeable future.  I had to change to my Jeffrey Campbell boots to actually do anything.

Although I love the cape, I have to admit that I don’t exactly love the cape on me.  It’s not the best of silhouettes for a petite and I always feel too overwhelmed: all you can see is the cape, like HELLO CAPE— oh, and are in you there, Alex?

I wore my Alexander Wang sweater tunic/dress thing under the cape.  It has a much looser fit than I usually go for but I adore it both as a very small dress and a tunic!

Oh, I was also featured on the We Love Colors Style Blog on Wednesday.  Not a bad way to celebrate a year of photos!

Love and snowflakes,
