strawberry fields

dress <french connection>, heels <miu miu>, clutch <banana republic>, belt <vintage>, ring <amrita singh>, bracelets <anthropologie and vintage>

more lace, i know!  i can’t get enough of this season’s take on lace.  last year, michelle williams wore a similar dress designed by Erdem (see it here).  i especially love this “strawberry” color. this belt is truly vintage, borrowed from my mother’s closet.  i adore it!  since i love strawberries, in every way (from color to taste), this was a fitting find!

as summer comes to a close, here’s a little reflection on some of my favorite things from my world of fasion. my favorite color from the spring/summer seasons was mint.  it’s just so fresh and flattering.  here, the feminine details of the eyelet patterned skirt it one of my faves.  it’s just so dainty!  the real standout here, however, is the miu miu clutch.  its jeweled chain strap is simply divine!  i picked up this newly minted “jewel” of a bag in NYC this summer.  pull out all of your faves for one last hurrah and enjoy the last couple weeks of summer!!

the past and present

top <bcbg>, skirt <lauren moffat>, shoes <miu miu>, jewelry <vintage, the limited & cost plus world market>, clutch <target>

this look reminds me of both the past and the present.  the ivory lace skirt and silky, vintage print top seem to speak of past events reminding me of my mother’s wedding dress and some of her own personal items, while the sparkly shoes and modern clutch exude newness and innovation. it seems as though some of these items should have been inherited, although they were more recently purchased.  these slingback pumps are particularly special to me.  being sort of an “investment” piece, i look forward to passing these on to future generations (if i can give them up;)! i love mixing seemingly old and new pieces.
