Saturday Nostalgia

maroonHello All,

They say that the person you are today is a reflection of who you were in the past, just better.  I have to admit the things that I pick out for my closet now definite reflect certain memorable items from my childhood.

I’ve always loved beaded jewelry. I think the first beaded piece of jewelry I owned was given to me by my mother. It was a bracelet made of red seads with black dots at the very tip of each bead. They were strung up on a wax linen string. I adored it as a child. Today, I pick out beaded jewelry that I love to wear over and over again with different outfits. I love their earthy character.

Besides beaded jewelry, I’ve always loved the feel of a great pair of jeans. I must have been in the 5th grade when I learned that a great pair was essential. I adore this biker style black pair of jeans. I love the textured knees.

Hey All,

My schedule got busy again. On top of work and all the activities I participate in regularly, this past month was eventful with the addition of going back to school and welcoming my nephew. But nevertheless, with such a busy schedule, there was some time to do some blog shoots. Hopefully, I can still keep up. Wish me luck.

Last year, during Hawaii Fashion Week, I was perusing through the work of local designers and have been admiring the work of a few who fit my style esthetic. I recently had the opportunity to meet and check out the work of The Cut Collective. I’ve been loving their collections and have become a fan of their work.

When I saw this top at their showroom a couple of weeks ago, I really loved the pleated shoulders and was inspired to create an outfit that celebrated its Grecian feel. I paired it with a textured midi skirt and finished the outfit with some brass and gold accessories. Let me know what you think.

XOXO,

Elle
