Manchester in Brooklyn


WE ARE COW flannel-turned-dress (℅), Walter Baker blouse (℅), Jeffrey Campbell pumps, Cambridge Satchel Co. x Vivienne Westwood bag (℅)

I have to give WE ARE COW of Manchester some major credit, they're  making some seriously cute remade pieces out of things we all see a ton of at thrift shops- oversized flannels, XL golf shirts, poly printed tops and polos- gotta love 'em for doing the right thing. This pinafore with oversized armholes รก la overalls is fun to layer, definitely looking forward to wearing this thing with super tight turtlenecks this fall. I paired it with my Westwood bag 'cause she's originally from a village not too far from where WAC was founded.

As for the blouse, I got on the bandwagon of tops that look like they're falling off for a few months now, and I like versions for cooler weather, personally. I jut like wearing out of season tops when it's too hot out 'cause I'm terribly impatient.




Reformation dress, Paige jeans (℅), Loeffler Randall bag, Schutz platforms (℅), Classic Specs glasses (℅), By Boe single hoop earring  

Lots of giggles, which tends to happen when it's NOT HUMID OUTSIDE OH MY GOD.

Been trying out dressin' with dresses- layered, like I wore in my last post, and as tops, like I have here. This embroidered babydoll dress was an eBay find I had to move on- I mean Ref always knows how to inject a sense of play into their pieces, and this is clearly no exception. Plus, y'know, linen is super comfortable.

And then there's the 70's steez with these insane glasses and the platform+flare combo, with this haircut I can't help myself

Double Dress


Jil Sander silk dress, Reformation dress (the dress is essentially the Cornelia, only made with cotton instead of linen), Jeffrey Campbell pumps, vintage Esprit bag, vintage Calvin Klein jacket, Persol sunglasses (Karen Walker's hardware-to-acetate design is pretty similar), childhood pearl necklace

There's plenty of vintage t-shirt and silky/slinky dress pairing in the air lately, I suppose this is me going to the next level on this concept by layering perfect Tee-top dress and petal cocktail dress. By themselves, they serve different purposes; the white, super bouncy elastane-cotton Reformation dress is brought out when I'm feeling brave and confident (I have to take it to the dry cleaners often, put it that way).

The Jil dress, however, I go either way on. I'd normally wear it to an "event" of some sort, but let's be honest, I'm never invited to these fabled schwankfests. Instead, I'll throw this delicate pink dress to treat myself to a glass of wine and a book +maybe a little flirty conversation with a bartender as he wipes the clean glasses by the dusty bottle of Campari by the radio and delicately places them on the stack by my seat, pretending each time to cheers the glass between my fingertips..

...what was I talking about?

Anyway, also wearing the string pearl necklace I've had since I was 6 years old. My mom gave it to me, and only allowed me to wear it to formal functions, but uh, now I just wear it to the grocery store.
