More Than You Ever Wanted To Know

I don’t do a lot of tags because I tend to have a lot of things to say and I like to keep a post as concise and consistent as possible. However, I couldn’t refuse when Brigadeiro asked so nicely...
Describe your personal style.
I’d say my style is quirky and feminine. I like to add personal, whimsical touches to basic clothes and I’m addicted to pretty dresses.
What are the staples in your wardrobe?
Dresses and ballet flats; I seriously wear these items 360 days in a year. Occasionally I attempt heels, in colder times I add tights and coats, and I’m also usually lugging a giant handbag around.
What’s your signature look?
I have no idea...one of my signatures is to re-wear the same pieces but never repeat an outfit. So the re-styling of one dress would be a signature of mine.
Who is your fashion muse?
I don’t have one particular muse, but I’m inspired by lots of people and characters in old films. Sofia Coppola is a big inspiration to me—I like how she is known for her work more than her fashion, but she also has great personal style.
Favourite purchase of all time?
Probably my pink vintage dress from the 1950s. I hardly ever find an excuse to wear it, but it is simply gorgeous.
Biggest splurge.
Remember what my job is? My biggest splurge was when I bought a Trashy Diva dress for $98. It took me months to finally devote the funds to it—I only make minimum wage!
What’s your beauty routine?
I am an essentially lazy person and I don’t have much of routine. I always wash my face with St. Ive’s apricot scrub and apply lotion at night. I try to drink lots of water. And once a week I try to not wear any makeup at all for day…I consider it giving my skin a “break.”
What jewelery do you never take off?
I take it all off! I tend to go through phases when I will wear one set of bracelets for a couple of weeks then I’ll switch to a necklace, or a pair of earrings. Honestly though, many days I don’t wear any jewelry.
What are you wishing for?
I’m wishing for a clear cut sign about what I should do when I graduate this spring. I’m seriously lacking direction right now…
Fashion wise: the funds for a pair of spiked Christian Louboutin for Rodarte heels, more patterned tights, a new pair of black ballet flats, and a vintage set of luggage.
Outfit details: jacket- Urban Outfitters, dress- Zara, tights- gift, bag- gift, shoes- secondhand

Since I named "remixing" as my signature, I figured it was time for another remix post. This is an Urban Outfitters dress I bought about one year ago. Here's a few ways I've worn it:

  1. you are queen of the remix. its amazing how fresh a garment can look just by adding layers or accessories.

    PS: I love the blue loafers!

  2. Those flats are loverly!

    I also believe the whole letting your skin breathe for a day kinda thing. And I am glad to see you have a sensible approach to fashion...save save save!!!

  3. bit by the tagging monster also? oh noes!
    Well...lazyness is awesome and I subscribe to that... but you still have more of a beauty routine than I do... I am 20 and have 3 wrinkles already... and for a lot of time I did not drink water at all... now I started... health issues... anyway, I think I might just be a talker too!

  4. i'm on the same page as you with the splurges - i think my biggest was a pair of $85 jeans. and this was even at nordstrom rack! i just can't part with much money at a time. you always manage to look adorable, though.

  5. Cool pics, you're very stylish !

  6. Wow, you deserve to be commended for never wearing the exact same outfit twice. I think I will make that a goal of mine.

    Also, those shoes are adorable.

  7. I also find huge inspiration from films and Sofia definetly has impeccable taste in everything from fashion to art. I really like your blog btw!

  8. Frankly, I adore you for saving up your money for something you love. There are so many bloggers, particularly in their late teens/early 20s whose parents seem to give them unrealistic access to fashion & funds. It seems to mean more when we work & save up for our pieces.

  9. I love this jacket! I want it!

  10. You're so reasonable! That's great - I really can't stand over the top fashion (oh, except it is fun to look at sometimes...). But you get a thumbs up for all of those answers. :) Remixing outfits is fun too; it's always great when you find a new way to wear something you've had for years.

  11. Lady, you are the QUEEN of remixing!

    xoxo.

  12. Cream, blue, and plum--what a delectable colour combination! And I'm in awe of your remix skills...you inspire me to think of new ways I can wear the same item.

  13. Remix post is so cool ! I love the first two pictures of the set, the backgrounds are great :)

    ReplyDelete
  14. I love how you can make that dress look so different every time you wear it. And those studded flats are great! I want some.

    ReplyDelete
  15. lovely photos. i am like you, i have to take off all my jewel pieces at the end of the night.

  16. I really like your Zara dress, it looks so comfortable. The color is beautiful.

    Speaking of beautiful, it looks like the weather has allowed you to have some fun outside without threatening to turn you blue! We've had a bit of a heat wave (high 30s - mid 40s) here in NY, so it must be warming up in PA too :)

  17. These photos are great! Brilliant loafers too x

The pictures on the other hand, I enjoyed even more! Just gorgeous! Love your wardrobe remixing! I love trying to wear my items in different ways, but you are definitely great at it!

    I cannot get enough of dresses and ballet flats too. Even when I've already decided that I have enough dresses and need something else, I cannot help but go to the dresses racks first.

  48. love how you reuse things and change it up =) i'm queen of the same thing over and over hahaa..it's always some kind of white shirt..i don't know why!

    ReplyDelete
  49. It's strange to think of your style boiled down to just dresses and flats. I guess that's what it is, but you do it so well. I love these pictures. The navy and purple combination is perfect.

    ReplyDelete
  50. luv your take on your beauty routine. i think i might follow suit and skip wearing make-up a day or two to give my face and myself a break! :)

    ReplyDelete
  51. St Ives apricot scrub is my staple too! So cheap but effective.

    ReplyDelete
  52. i simply love your studded flats <3

    ReplyDelete
  53. I love your outfit, this is pretty colour of tights!

    ReplyDelete
  54. ooh i love those shoes, they look smart yet practical. i'm also wishing for a sign about what to do when i graduate! it is scary yet exciting.

    ReplyDelete

  56. i totally love the remixing of the dress. the outfits are all great! esp the beautiful photo with the denim dress over it. very nice! :)

    ReplyDelete
  57. flats = repetto PLEASE!
    loub for rodarte = amazing, but $$ and Too Trendy, maybe? but im sure youll be able to pull it off amazingly.
    also, love all your dark rich shades in this outfit--none of them take away from each other! subtle and chic!
    can we trade links?? :)
    cheers
