Things have been so busy for me the past few days. I’ve owned an online boutique for ten years now, but it’s the first time I’ve really given my own shop an honest go. I’ve been piled up with photography, listings, and marketing ideas – not to mention blog posts. But I’m loving every second of it.
This is one of the first new looks I’ve done some photography for. It works so well together because of the cropped top and high waist on the skirt. The midriff just peeks through, so it’s still modest without being frumpy. The top is Chinese-inspired, and the satin brocade pattern is so luxe it almost looks haute couture. And the skirt has pockets! Even though both pieces are vintage, they are completely wearable – and even though this look is retro (even including a retro-inspired Cole Haan hand bag) it doesn’t look costumey when it’s styled minimally. Shop the look below, with a similar bag & shoe.
See you again soon… work is calling.
