Sorry for the scattered post schedule! Things have been really crazy lately and the weather is just horrendous! It's been snowing basically every week and the temps are beyond freezing. The only real way to deal with it is to go indoors or underground. The subways in New York are a character all their own and I had a blast just riding the subway for a few hours with no real place to go. I felt like I wanted an outfit that completely contrasted the gritty, rough feel of the underground and pictured an elegant, polished look with some fur and jewels.
I just love the rich chocolaty color of this dress and decided to run with a palette of muted greys and lots of texture to go with it. The earrings are a really special find. I was given some really old Guatemalan silver jewelry that was purchased way back in the 60s and was just totally tarnished but still stunningly beautiful. A little baking soda and a toothbrush restored them to a wearable shiny silver and I'm completely in love with them. Here's to bringing back the big earring!
But my favorite part of this look is the hidden buckle detail in the back of the dress. It brings a ton of meaning to the phrase: Hate to see her go but love to watch her leave.
Hope you all had a great weekend! I just put up a video for Stylesip on some of my top secret hair tricks! You can check it out HERE
