Spring Shopping Vol. 2

I am by no means edgy by nature, but sometimes I do get the urge to dress the part. I love relaxed, easy pieces, but I most definitely need some structure to suit my figure, which is why I've been drawn to vests lately. I love the unusual shape and supple texture of this suede version by Acne. Throw in some rose gold and lucite and you have a full look.

Spring Shopping Vol. 1

I have had the hardest time getting dressed ever since the technical transition to spring. One reason it has been challenging is because the weather has not really followed suit. The other is that lately I've been finding everything in my closet a bore. Pieces are either too shapeless, too worn out, or just don't feel fresh and fun to put on. To solve this, I am trying to put together looks that I would actually wear. This isn't expert market work, but it is pretty close to my mix of arty, crafty, with a modern twist that I would absolutely wear on a weekend day.

Floral Minx Nails: Miu Miu Fall 2011 Edition

I've been dying to try Minx nails ever since they hit the mainstream. Luckily, I have a guy who gets my obsession with nails and he treated me to a set a few weekends ago. Considering that I am horrifically indecisive, it didn't take me long to choose this red floral print. The louder the better with this sort of thing, right? While Connie said it reminded her of those bad Hawaiian print shirts from the '90s, I had more of a Miu Miu Fall 2011 vibe in my head. A girl can dream.

Neon Camping Bracelets

I, like most fashion-loving twenty-somethings, became immediately obsessed with Proenza Schouler's Pre-Spring 2011 camping-inspired jewelry. Despite being the perfect (budget-friendly) product to fill the gaping lack of Proenza in my closet, what they really did was get my crafting impulse going. After enlisting Mark, we went perhaps too far and created a nice little collection of camping bracelets. Since I can only wear one or two max, we posted the rest on Etsy. If you're interested, it would make my day to sell one to someone other than my good friend Paul.

UPDATE: Shop is replenished with new bracelets coming this weekend. Thanks to everyone who purchased!
