It’s been said that a blogger’s outfit not posted is an outfit not worn. Which means that my daily grind of outfitting myself is completely lost on the blogosphere since it never existed here to begin with. It sounds like a small slice of sartorial quantum mechanics, yet somehow I get it. If I wore it, but you didn’t see it, then does it make a sound?
So in an attempt to remedy the situation, I decided to record some of my daily ensemble choices into a theoretical diary of “What-I-Wore”s for an occasional post. It has been some time since I have graced the pages of my blog, and my unintentional sabbaticals do cause me some angst. The itch my fingers feel when I place them on the keyboard is a tell all on its own as to the withdrawal I suffer as a result of my absence; a writer needs to write. Thus, I will try to make up for the lost time in spades and present a compilation with the first batch of outfits I wore as of late.
One of my favorite articles of clothing has always been a classic Shirtdress. With a take on menswear I cannot resist, I am always on the hunt for different colors and versions of this staple. It is a chic minimalist aesthetic that can transition seamlessly from Fall to Spring, and can be dressed up or down. In the world of Fashion, a piece that can be transformed so easily to suit any situation is superlative, and thus invaluable.
So you can imagine my excitement when the MIMU girls created the MIMU MAXI Jean Husband Dress. Combining the cool factor of your husband’s favorite button-down, with the perennially perfect choice of denim, the result is a major revelation for your closet. It also doesn’t hurt that it is comfortable; something we all look for when getting dressed.
I styled it to emulate a rocker chic vibe, and paired the dress with leather leggings, booties, and a motorcycle jacket. I belted it, wore a black turtleneck underneath, topped it off with a silver collar, and flipped my cuffs up to emphasize the layering. I love the longer length in the back, not to mention the pockets…pockets are everything. I am anxiously awaiting the arrival of their spring line, and I have my eyes on the new dresses coming out!
But the best part of this is that MIMU MAXI is having a surprise flash sale any day (this $72 dress will be $40!). Get on their e-mail list at mimumaxi.com to get the details soon!
I chose to go with this vintage beaded dress and nude pumps for Ohr Naava’s Great Vintage Event, and I’m glad I did. It is truly a thing of the past; charming and transcendent of time. That is the beauty of vintage. It can be worn with relevance today, while maintaining the secret of it’s history. The allure of a vintage piece is partly due to the life it lived before it was in your hands. When you put it on, the mystique and glamor of the clothing is yours for a day…
I got a chance to meet many of the vendors, and see their pieces, and it was a beautiful sight to behold. Like a trove of vintage treasure.
Everyone got a perfect picture over at Chaya and Simi’s Frock Swap!
Ohr Naava truly knows how to throw an event, and everything came together flawlessly. I had more fun than I ever was expecting to and I am grateful that I was able to meet so many women in our community involved in the world of Frum Fashion.
Shirt: Faconnable / Skirt: Schumacher / Necklace: J. Crew / Shoes: Jimmy Choo sim / Bag: Chanel / Sunnies: Chanel / Hair: Mazali Yesterday I stopped by Pink Label in Brooklyn to check out the Tibi trunk show. I wore a super high-waisted Midi length skirt, with a split-front and performed a modest improvisation with a black slip underneath. I turned up my sleeves and donned some silver criss-cross shoes. I know that soon I won’t be able to wear these Choos again for a while. Or any open shoe for that matter.
While most of the highly covetable full skirts were sold out by the time I stepped foot in the store, there was still plenty of gorgeous resort wear to be found for 2014. The trunk show is continuing today, and new pieces from the collection have arrived. The Full Midi Paint Splatter skirts can still be purchased on Tibi‘s site but the stock is low so if you’re interested you have to hurry. Their SoHo store usually has some stock left, but these skirts sell fast.
On that note, Tibi is also having their sample sale starting tomorrow. Included in the sale will be shoes, apparel, runway pieces, and current season items. Happy Shopping!
Blazer: Zara / Knitted Sweater: Zara / Skirt: Olivaceous sim / Shoes: Givenchy / Sunnies: Chanel / Hair: Mazali
I am really loving this double breasted blazer right now. The outfit is simple, but the cropped boxiness of the blazer juxtaposed with the fullness of the skirt creates the perfect proportions for this Fall.
