I presented at a graduate student conference over the weekend; after doing the work of getting the paper together, the most important part is clearly what to wear. So, with a little input from some friends, I picked out my favorite snakeskin patterned dress and this sharp little blazer, which I don't have enough opportunity to wear. The necklace is a repurposed mother-of-pearl silverware handle and was a huge hit at the conference! (As was my paper, thank goodness!)
This sweater came in a little care package from my mom last week, and though I'm not sure I would have picked it out myself, I'm absolutely tickled that she thought I would like it, because I do! It's just the right amount of sweet with a little bit of sardonic. Who can resist a bespectacled bunny?
This dress was my spring break non-academic project, and I'm terribly pleased with it. I've worn it half-a-dozen times already. It's Colette Pattern's Laurel, in a beautiful soft wool flannel, fully lined, with an exposed gold zipper. I've already got a few ideas for other fabrics I'll use for this lovely pattern!
This is an oldie from early in the winter, but recently rediscovered. I snagged these amazing silver ankle boots on a gift card from Macy's and am pleased as all get-out with them: they're shiny and sturdy and armor-like and just the right amount of dandy for me.
This skirt -- which was once a much more flapper-esque drop-waist dress -- is lovely, but difficult to style with other items in my wardrobe. It's so pale, delicate, ethereal. I love the way the breton-stripe top grounds it a bit, referencing the historical feeling while also being sharply modern. I do love to pair this skirt with these great mary jane shoes, too; they're just the perfect color combination.
