Feathered

Missoni-esque dress, Lipstick. Denim jacket, Dalia Collection. Tooled leather belt, thrifted. Peeptoe pumps, Charles David. Bag, Prague (thrifted). Feathered headband, Forever 21. Ring, Jan Michaels.

The hair will be up for a few days as we deal with summer’s last gasps. In fact, it was too horrid outside to take photographs on the deck. (I was SO gross and sweaty after the Dotty photoshoot.) I plan to return outdoors soon, but interior shots will have to do until it cools off a little.



I didn’t realize, until I paired this headband with the dress, that the “Missoni-esque” print looks a little like overlapping feathers. I enjoyed the contrast of the colors and pattern of the actual and stylized plumage.

I’m tickled by the small revival of the 80’s peplum. I had a black sheath dress during that era that came with a detachable, tartan and metallic peplum. I wish I still had it. I belted this jacket to get more of a peplum effect from the swing shape.

I love what you've done with the jacket, I think I'll borrow your style for mine.
Great shoes too.

WoW what a clever! way to turn the trapeze trend into the peplum trend with what you already have.

I really love your swept up hair with the feathered headband. It's just the right combination of fun and chic. Gorgeous.

Your hair looks great like that - love the feathered headband.

I adore peplum jackets - it's one 80s look I don't mind seeing again.

Where do you wear this fab wardrobe?

I was about to say I have the same print as well, but Josephine beat me to it!
I used your headband/ponytail look today and freaking LOVE IT.
Thank you again for all the great ideas. Don't ever go away or I'll be forced back into jeans, khaki's and 3/4 length sleeve button down shirts. And nobody wants that to happen.
