I post my outfits on the blog every day at noon (12 p.m. EST) under this Style category #OOTD Daily Style and then I do a summary of all the looks in my Month of Style roundup at the end of the month.
The Red, White and Blue Look
I don’t know why. I felt like wearing this very plain striped trench dress and then making it pop with a red necklace. That’s all I had. Then I added the clutch because it just went so perfectly with it, picking up the red in the necklace, and having the same lines in the design as the dress (geometric flowers).
These small colourful clutches you see are actually upcycled obi sashes or kimonos that are made into clutches. There’s an Etsy seller who makes them called tamamiko bags and I have purchased about 10 of them from her. LOL! They’re beautiful, upycled works of art. I love them, and they hold my necklaces and other accessories, while still being very useful if I want to use them. Her work is gorgeous.
I’d call this my basic b*tch uniform for work. Can’t think of what to wear? Didn’t plan AT ALL? Or your outfit you picked out ends up tanking because it’s raining and it will JUST NOT WORK?… Throw on a dress, pack some heels, wear rain boots, and get to work on time.
I added a ring if you will notice on my right hand. Because I can’t help myself. I need something extra. I sort of like the red necklace as well, it adds a nice pop of colour but again, feels very basic… I almost feel like I should have gone with something far more striking. I can’t help it, I always want to add something extra in at least ONE PIECE!!!
