My Early Valentine


I'm a little bit early for Valentine's Day, but I recently received this dress and brooch and the mail and felt like wearing "all the heart clothes." The brooch (by Les Mirrettes) goes along with my goal of being more detail-orientated in my wardrobe and adding more vintage influences. With cold weather I often consider jewelry out of the question since metal colder than your skin draws heat of your body--making rings, necklaces, and whatnot painful to wear in winter. But a brooch pinned to fabric is a nice option to add a personal touch to your outfit without sapping the warmth from your body. The little bow piercing this anatomically correct heart reminds me of Cupid's arrows, although I'm planning on wearing this brooch with many non-Valentine's related outfits. Also, how fun is it that nearly every heart on the dress is upside down? I feel as if it's some of sartorial joke about mixed up hearts...

So romantic-chic. You're getting better and better at modeling - your facial expressions and poses really tell the story of your outfits.

I simply LOVE LOVE your outfit!! I hope you plan to do more outfits with white tights? I never thought of having them in my wardrobe but I will have to reconsider that. Do you feel comfortable wearing them?

@Anonymous 12:12, yeah I like my white tights--I've worn them a number of times since I got them and I think they'll be in heavy rotation for awhile; they're perfect for vintage ensembles. I can do a white tights remix this Sunday with the ways I've worn them so far.

I love this location! I fits so nicely with the scene here. I love how this outfit is so simple yet so great at the same time. I can't quite bring myself to wear white or cream tights but sometimes I think they would look so much nicer that darker colours. I'm only just starting to get the hang of colours tights as an alternative to coloured jeans... It's so much more fun!
