#Throw Back Thursday

I have noticed a recent running trend in my closet; I own so many pieces that pay homage to 1960’s (like this). These 1960’s trends have been reemerging in fashion, television, advertisements and photography and I don’t hate it! The flattering silhouettes, bright colors, bold patterns and costume jewelry are the perfect tie-ins for summer.  I featured some of my favorite 1960’s inspired dresses; their tailoring, color, and fit make them the ideal for summer work or play.

Unless you have been living under a rock for last 2 months you have noticed that floral patterns, especially pants, are really trendy right now. I love this pair from Zara I may have to scoop up a pair so I can wear them to work this spring/ summer.

Gatsby Darling

I can’t wait for the  “Great Gatsby” premiere, I’m weirdly obsessed with the 20’s and I feel like there is such a correlations between today’s generation and the 20’s. So I was very excited when a co-worker passed along to me that Brooks Brother’s did a Great Gatsby inspired collection.

Suit Up

Very rarely do I find clothes that can translate from work appropriate to something I would wear on the weekend. I tend to be attracted to bold prints, colors and textures, which real doesn’t bode well when you are working in place as conservative as Washington DC. Luckily I work for a company that isn’t stiff, which allows me to show case  my more vibrant side at work. Below I have taken some outfits that aren’t NSFW (not safe for work) and made them more work aprops.

Pearls of Wisdom

Pearl Necklace

So this past weekend I found this gorgeous pearl and gold chain linked necklace at the Greek festival in DC. Its handmade my local talent who is already notorious  for her whimsical designs and affordable prices. The reason why I was drawn to this necklace was the boldness of it and the hints of Renaissance  influence.

                    Now I hate it when Im strolling down the street and I see another girl wearing the same thing as me so these jewelry pieces are ideal.

Can’t take it with you

“Hoarders” is such a  popular and thats because we all have trouble with parting with our possessions, as I transitioned my closet from winter to spring I decided to do some spring cleaning and donate some of my clothing, shoes and purses. Someone once told me that a good rule of thumb is “every time you buy something new you should remove something you no longer use” that way your wardrobe is always current and there isn’t a chance that will become barricaded in your home. Now you can either to donate your clothing to charity or so resell it at a consignment shop either way you shouldn’t ever throw anything away. Sometimes your wardrobe can seem utterly exhausted and all your clothes seem out of date, but that isn’ always the case you just need a fresh pair of eyes.
