Cheap Monday dress via Asos (℅), vintage sweater via Dusty Rose Vintage, Rebecca Minkoff backpack (℅), Vagabond shoes, Ray Ban sunglasses 

Gosh dang, I love this tie dress found on Asos: it has such a modest length but the side slit with the ties is soooo cheeky. I styled this number back last summer when it wasn't quite on shelves yet, and it's been on my mind ever since!

 Is there a more fundamental, more basic form of clothing fastening than the simple strap tie? There's something about the semiotic duality of the ribbon tie that I love: On one hand, it can look like something you'd see on a hospital gown (which I STILL love), but on the other, it's one of the most elegant, historic and practical ways to fasten two pieces of cloth together.

Also, sunglasses as pins in knits, amirite?

Oh, did you notice my lipstick experiment here?
(In case you're wondering, it's NARS semi-matte lipstick in Scarlet Empress, semi-applied)
