Something Old, Something New: Putting it All Together

croppedsweater3Hello All,

My photographer and I wanted to try something new by doing a night time shoot. Let me know how it turned out. One of the hardships with night time shoots is always lighting. I think he did a good job with what little light we had available.

I have recently examine my closet and realized that my closet is a mixture of pieces that I have collected over the years; pieces from college that I try too keep in good condition, hand me down pieces, pieces I have found on Ebay, discounted and outlet items, some vintage and thrifted acquisitions and new pieces. Despite where I have found most of the pieces from my closet, one thing remains the same, they all fit my style. It’s not as incohesive as described above, there is definitely a running style thread that makes all the pieces in my closet fit together.

This outfit is just that, a hodge podge of different items that just fit together.  From my pairs of Christian Louboutin heels to vintage items liked this polka dot skirt which was a great find from Barrio Vintage, a local vintage shop, to the cropped short sleeve sweater from the  Peter Pilotto for Target collection and the glue that ties them to together, is a classic white button down shirt that can be worn with anything.

One quote that sticks out to me from one of my favorite designers as a child, Yves Saint Laurent once said, “Fashion fades, Style is Eternal.” Stay Stylish Ladies and Gentlemen.

XOXO,

Elle

Booming Fall Colors: 3.1 Phillip Lim Sweater

Boom1

Hey Everyone,
Hope you are having a wonderful Monday. I was super excited about the 3.1 Phillip Lim for Target collection that came out in September. I got a chance to pick up a couple of items to add to my wardrobe. There were some things that I wish I had gotten like the leopard print sweater, the gray Boom sweatshirt as well as a bag which were all on my wishlist. I did get a chance to pick up the number one item on my wishlist which was the Boom sweater dress that I converted into a sweater as well as the Sparkle and Floral peplum tops.

The first time I saw the 3.1 Phillip Lim Ka-Pow Pullover a couple of seasons back I instantly fell in love. When I found out about his collaboration with Target this past summer, I was super excited about seeing the different pieces from the collection. I was glad that the BOOM sweater dress was reminiscent of his Ka-Pow pullover.  I’m going to be honest, I personally didn’t like it as a sweater dress and it was overwhelming on my frame so I decided to modify it by taking off the skirt of the dress and use it as a sweater instead. It looks better don’t you think?

I am definitely enjoying my trip to New England. I hope you are enjoying the Fall as much as I am and if you don’t have an opportunity to see the changing colors, definitely plan to take a trip to see all the foliage change colors. Thanks again for reading and take care.

XOXO,

Elle
