I've been on a little holiday here in Massachusetts with my family, one half in Sudbury, the other in Sandwich. I really needed a break from city life, but I couldn't resist the chance to visit Boston for a little bit. After stopping by the Boston MFA, which has a wonderful exhibit of their collection of Fashion Illustrations on exhibit right now, my aunt took us  for a walk around Southend. It's wonderfully charming out here! I was so bummed out when my camera died while we were walking around, but thankfully I was able to capture some memorable parts of our walk on my iPhone!

I decided to pack and finally wear out this delicate and super luxe Gryphone skirt that I must have picked up a year ago at a sample sale. Just like the Cooperative piece I spoke about in my last post, this skirt is just three layers of chiffon with heavy chain woven into it. I can't help but love how the contrasting elements work so beautifully together! I also packed my cheery yellow RM swing bag to have a pop of color on hand, always important.

  3. I love how your style is always so subtly sexy but kind of funky urban at the same time. I guess that is a random thing to say but this mix of rock'n'roll boots and socks with a sweet and sexy skirt added in with a pop of yellow and some denim for good measure, that is just coolness itself. You always inspire me :) Love thsi look! (and Boston… such a darn cool city)

  12. So awesome seeing your Boston photos-- I'm living in Boston right now (well, Cambridge technically) and I love it! You should definitely do some vintage shopping around here if you have time-- there are so many (cheaper!) places for great vintage, especially in Cambridge and around Newbury Street in Boston. Hope you have fun on your trip!
