My great mistake, the fault for which I can't forgive myself, is that one day I ceased my obstinate pursuit of my own individuality // Oscar Wilde

// little update–stripes & spots.

You guys, NYC has been so rainy. What even is this? Therefore, this week’s outfit post was taken indoors.

Crew mutli-buckle leather belt // Felt hat, thrifted // Smashbox “Infrared” matte red lipstick // Madewell gold bangle // Forever 21 triangle painted earrings //

Things have been busy–I met Isaac this week! It was a brief meeting, but I think the red lipstick helped me to stand out. I didn’t wear this exact outfit, but it was pretty close. The red lips, hat, and shoes stayed the same.

I am focusing my efforts on social media for both Gabriela Moya and Isaac Mizrahi. For GM, I am managing the Pinterest and Facebook (please Like and follow us!) and at IM, I am comparing successful fashion brands and their use of social media. As it turns out, this is pretty extensive. There are even infographics for it. So I’ve been researching and researching and researching. Hope and I are going to begin an intern project at IM next week and we will possibly be styling some upcoming garments/accessories around the city. CROSS YOUR FINGERS. That would be so fun!

Also, how did I forget to mention that I was a featured guest blogger for The Hemborg Wife two weeks ago?? Where has the time gone?? Go read my post (“Accidental First Dates”) and see what Bailie is up to. She took a little trip to Cali and spends most of her days being a lovely wife in Sweden (sounds great, right?!).

the occasion-less dress found an occasion

One dress–two ways.

Mauve evening gown: H&M

Olive green sandals: UAL

Belt: thrifted

Jacket: Lucky Brand

I bought this lovely in Chitown from H&M. I fell in love with the pleats (and price) immediately, and Allison quickly talked me into purchasing it. However, it was named my “occasionless dress,” because it is just far too fancy for day-to-day wear. Well, unless you are friends with Allison who also bought an occasionless piece and feel that evening wear has a place in the daily. Therefore, we put on our polyester beauties and headed up to Nashville for an entire day filled with shopping, food, photos, and SO MANY laughs.

There are, of course, more photos to come. This is just an outfit teaser.
