MINTIMALIST

Two things I rarely do: wear a newsboy cap "the right way," not wear jewelry. But today I went there. Into the void. A detachable collar will save you from having to find the right strand of pearls to match your mint and lavender knit sweater, which WOW deserves it's own moment of silence. I think bowing your head down and quietly praying to a Fashion God is starting to become a Fated To Be Hated tradition. And if this is your first time givin' an article of my clothing "the sacred treatment" then HEY, you're not fully immersed in this whole blog experience, buddy.




FROM TOP TO BOTTOM:
Cap - Nordstrom
Pea coat - Nordstrom
Collar - Romwe, www.romwe.com
Sweater - Secondhand
Petticoat skirt - Wholesale-Dress
Heels - Ralph Lauren

So, the color scheme speaks for itself (in a nearly muted beige whisper, just like Monday) with a splash of purple in a sea of mint foam. As for the newsboy cap? I always wear mine backwards to imitate a beret, but I figured I had nothing to lose wearing it 'correctly,' and at any rate, the only reason I'd been abstaining from wearing newsboy caps altogether was 1) they're SO Alyson Stoner in Cheaper By the Dozen 2003 and 2) nobody else wears them so it makes me uncomfortable. First of all, 2003 is the second most PERFECT year to draw inspiration from stylistically (only second to Winning London 2001) and second of all, since when do I need permission from my peers to wear something I wanna wear? So what if no one wears newsboy caps except dumb old me? It's my party and I'll be dumb if I want to! I realize I'm ranting here, so I'll stop (sorry!) But you guys get the picture. Don't wait for a style to hit Forever 21 before you get into it. Like it now? Wear it now. Carpe diem.









Everything is infinite,

  13. Love how you paired up the socks with those heels.. and the skirt. Adorbs.

    I.. don't think I've ever worn a newsboy hat in my life. My head is pointy so most hats look weird on me.

    Okay time for a moment of silence.
