1st September, 2011

{ karen walker ‘number one’ sunnies, gifted l.a.m.b. top, vintage moschino skirt (recently seen HERE / the plaid is created from rows of type!), anya hindmarch clutch, alexander wang shoe } 
as my hair gets a teensy bit longer, i’ve been alternating between tighter, twenties-ish curls (as seen yesterday) and this looser, more natural wave (also worn on monday). it’s the same process, but this time around i’m curling bigger sections at a time and using much less hairspray. love having another option! i can’t wait till i can break into braids and buns and center parts and such. this is a whole new frontier of girlhood for me!!

    I love the shoes so much!

    I'm like the reverse of you right now. I've always had long hair so I've tried out loads of braids and up dos over the years. (by that I mean my best friend the hairdresser has) but now my hair is a similar length to yours and everything is so shiny and new!

  • Nikki

    You are the master of mixing prints, Kelly! I love how this look holds a slightly grungy feel only with more "chic" than in the 90's. The clutch and shoes really pull it all together though. Fabulous!

  • monkeyshines ♄

    adore those heels! chic shirt!


  • blue roses

    i love mixing polka dots and stripes, but i had never really contemplated plaid; most of my plaid is stolen men's shirts from my father, brother, and friends. i like that both the skirt and the blouse have a feminine cut.

  • the { novel } boudoir

    i love the contrast of plaid prints. lovely.
