CROP TOP + FULL SKIRT



I love the look of a full skirt worn with a midriff crop top. It's the perfect mixture of modern and retro. I purchased this beautiful vintage Valentino skirt from my favorite consignment store. I love it's modest length, It can easily be worn in the office, but isn't more fun with an American Apparel crop top! I mixed and matched my accessories with a green clear box clutch, black & white Moschino belt, and sky high leopard platforms.

COAT-DRESS


Thursday I had the pleasure of attending Thread's VIP press party. Thread is a super cool pop-up shop hosted at Union Market's Dock 5. A three-day showcase of unique local and national retailers, indie designers, and artists. I scored an insanely awesome vintage Jil Sander dress for 35 (freaking) bucks, trust me you want to check out the next Thread in June! 

For the event I pulled out my pink Miu Miu spring trench coat from the back of the closet and paired it with a mid-waist belt to achieve the coat-dress. I added my favorite pink heels to give the look a pop of color and a statement Boy George purse that was a hit at the party! When wearing a coat as a dress you should allow the coat to be the base and let your accessories shine, shine, shine!

Jacket - Miu Miu
Shoes - Cynthia Rowley
Boy George Bag - Flea Market Find

Peak-a-boo is on trend for the spring. Keep it classy and sexy with an alluring lace dress. You'll be sure to make a sweeping entrance at any event!
