dress: anthropologie (c/o kate)
purse: haberdash vintage
heels: banana republic
yesterday jeb and i drove to conneticut for our friends' wedding and i wore this little ensemble. (clearly i was in a joan holloway frame of mind.) kate sent this dress in our cross country swap and she knew it would be perfect for the occasion. i find it difficult dressing for weddings that fall on the cusp of a new season, but this teal burnt velvet number was absolute perfection for a chilly spring day. i played around with different accessories, but found myself drawn to these vintage black floral studs. i thought they'd complement that black sash at the back of the dress and make it easy to pick shoes and a purse. once i had the earrings on the whole outfit quickly fell together. my leather peep-toes and patent leather purse were the perfect pieces to finish off my early sixties look.
as for hair and makeup, i've been playing around a lot with my signature high bun, and this braided updo is one i'll be repeating over and over again. with bright red lips and nails, black eyeliner and mascara i was ready to take on the world.
