the 773

You shouldn't come across a picture and think to yourself "I want to go there!" and then realize it's the city you have called "home" the last three years. But this picture did just that to me this afternoon:

the gods of styling

I am the farthest thing from a stylist but if I was, I would totally have all my models rock the messy bun and long thick eyelashes. This photograph could have been taken in 1960, 2010, or 2040 and that's what I love about fashion.

photo credit goes to someone far more stylish than me.

polka polka

This fall I went where I have never gone before, POLKA DOTS. I've always been an admirer from afar, like I am with high waisted pants, 5 inch heels, and pin straight hair. Yes those things look just lovely and fierce and all things vogue, just not for me.

To be honest, the older I've gotten the more I care about "my style" not necessarily being "in style." So during my bimonthly trip to H&M I grabbed a polka dot sweater and a polka dot blouse and tried both on with a frown on my face bracing myself for the worst. But they kind of sort of...worked. Both items passed my three check test (versatile? comfortable? cotton?) and while I returned the sweater, I have been LOVING my blouse and even purchased a black and white polka dot cardi from the Targ this weekend. I do believe there can be too much of a good thing, and so my polka dot buying will end after these two purchases. But I am proud of myself for trying something new, for stepping away from my usually black/white/navy/gray pallet and encourage my 2 readers to do the same!

work it girl.
