The cosmic forces of French toast

I admit... there are glaringly palpable moments when the savage urge to shop unexpectedly derails self-discipline. But at the menace of overindulgence, I’ve quickly come to realize that sometimes, all I really need to do is step away from the credit card, harness the craving, and just rejuvenate a variety of pieces that had somehow lost their style-fusion or had otherwise suffered the retirement section of my closet. And so I did… well, apart from the recently inescapable Stella McCartney acquisition.

(Alexander Wang Baggy Boaters Dress, Vintage DIY Levi's, Fausta Moretti sandals, Nordstrom knee highs, DIY bag, Vintage arrowhead necklace)

Thank you so much for leaving a comment on my blog!

I enjoy reading your posts, because you've really found your personal style and are thus able to go back and forth, playing with different looks, yet remain constant and true to yourself. That's what I call fashion intelligence!

I'm all for making the most of the pieces we already posses - you seem to handle it super well. Playful yet edgy - pure pleasure!
