My DvF style

My green Diane von Furstenberg dress from the previous post has been one of my most favorite finds! It really is a versatile dress. It’s definitely not something to wear to work, but a dress to make a statement! You can’t see it because of the sweater, but it has a low back that can be oh, so sexy. And that’s what I love about Diane von Furstenberg dresses and style! I’ve recently fallen in love with this beautiful one, hopefully one day saving enough to buy it! In the meantime, I’m happy with the DvF dresses I do have!

Here is a small roundup,

I’ve had some good luck, and I can’t wait to find more to add to my wardrobe!

Just a little fancy

When I began this blog and lived in Vegas, getting dressed for nightlife was a bigger part of my life (hence why I have an #OotN category as wells as a #OotD one). But living in San Francisco, those chances to dress up at night became fewer and fewer – and it’s not that people don’t like to dress nice here, but that you can get away with casual dressing practically every single day and for almost occasions! That when I do get to dress up, it’s really nice, I take full advantage of it!

And while our daytimes can be sort of warm, I had to take a sweater with me before it got dark because it always gets cold at night again. No matter the daytime weather (sorry to all of you melting away)

Sweater: Marc Jacobs, thrifted. Dress: Diane von Furstenberg, thrifted & Made in the USA! (the style is called Bridget, here are a few in different colors for sale). Lipstick: Revlon Colorburst in Raspberry Pie. Shoes: Dries Van Noten.

PS. I love bringing back outfits like this, that are showcasing style on a dime. I think this whole outfit cost less than $50!

My new striped dress

I’ve had a certain striped dress at the back of my mind these last few years – I was (and still am!) completely enamored by a certain Marc Jacobs striped silk dress (I even tried it on). But the price tag? Ouch, was several hundred dollars out of my budget. I’ll keep the story short, but I found this fabric with my mom and we immediately thought of THE dress and she agreed to make me an inspired version. How lucky am I to have such a talented mother!

I’m still laughing at this silly pose, but we had been watching a new Bettie Page documentary on Netflix the night before – apparently she had a knack for the weirdest poses, I on the other hand, do not :)

Summer Solstice Stripes

Nothing quite says Summer like putting on something short to enjoy a warm day at the park! Don’t worry, I wore shorts underneath :) this striped tunic is one of my favorite summery things to wear on weekends, pairing it with these old boots was an unexpected look I quite liked!

Tunic: Rag and Bone (here’s a link to a similar Rag & Bone striped tee). Boots: Target, very old. Backpack: Fjallraven. Lipstick: Revlon Matte Colorburst in Showy

Also, I have been having issues lately with resizing my photos – of which, I don’t know if it’s Flickr or my theme. And all of which, I also cannot tell how it will look until it is published. So I’m gonna try these larger photos for a bit. I hope you don’t mind as I figure things out. Please let me know if you see anything funky going on.

Black dress, black boots, black hat

I’ve said it once, and I’ll say it again – I’m a creature of extremes. I like my outfits colorful, or I like them dark, dark, dark. I’ll wear four inch heels, or I’ll stick to flats. I like to dress up, and then be super casual the next day. I can be very vintage, then on trend. There’s no name to this style, but it’s my style, and it works for me :)

This outfit didn’t start out all black, I had some gold flats on, but then I found these boots – my latest Rose Bowl Flea find (of which I’ve always had good luck finding brand new shoes!). So I quickly had to change out into these babies.

Dress: from my sister, quite old. Hat: Vintage. Boots: Vera Wang, from Rose Bowl Flea (these, also by Vera Wang are kind of similar!)
