Nothing Is Solid: Florals, Color Blocking, Lace

by jennine on August 22, 2011

color block two tone floral lace dress new york

These days anything can happen… and with that, nothing is solid. Either metaphorically.. or when it comes to my outfit today. At first, this dress called for wearing solids and minimal accessories, then it was like… why not for it here? This’ll brighten up a Monday!

A couple of weeks ago, I was looking around and saw this bag listed by Angie of Norwegian Wood on her vintage shop… Vintage Headquarters. The bag just had all my cravings lately, two tone, satchel, shoulder, and zip pockets…. not toe mention, $20. No brainer!

Speaking of no brains.. Things have been up in the air, as they always are the weeks before the conference… so apologies for the brevity of my post today, my brains are elsewhere but trust me, you’re in my thoughts. :)

Wearing: Dress: Zara • Collar: Eleven Objects (gift) • Bag: Vintage Headquarters • Shoes: Lumiani • Sunglases: Super Lucia • Accessories: Vintage, Liberty watch, Jcrew, target.

Get the Look:

Dress: Stella McCartney Floral Shift Dress, $655 • Dries Van Noten Silk Dress: $539 • Miss Selfridge Floral Print Shift Dress $31
Shoes:  Charles David Canny Spectator, $339 •  Dolce Vita Spectaor, $189 • Keds Saddle Sneaker $35
Collar: Eleven Objects, $175+ • Dannijo, Abram Silver Collar $158 • Leopard Print Collar, $20
Bag:  Rebeca Minkoff Schoolboy Bag, $375 • D&B Inspired Green Satchel $17 • Two Tone Equestrian Purse: $22

Just recently discovered you and really love your blog - especially how you feature vintage mixed with Zara, a store I love for being both affordable and a great go-to place for myself and my daughters (how many stores span generations so effectively?). Had to tell you I bought the B&W vintage satchel in your “Get the Look” section under your images … such a genius idea. Thank you for your inspiration!
