J'AWWDORE

Today I'm debuting a peice from Awwdore, an online retailer that specializes in retro-inspired apparel (and offers free worldwide shipping, which any vetted online shopper knows is a luxury). I don't normally wear white because its sterile, absent hue and unforgiving purity make me nervous... and supposedly it's not a slimming color. (Jk.) But this look actually couldn't have coalesced more beautifully than in monochrome. The subtle, flowery flourishes on the top's chiffon sleeves afford my top half just enough warmth to escape uniform austerity. Which definitely appeals to me... but not today. Today I invite romance. And nothing says romance quite like a fur vest and floral print.



FROM TOP TO BOTTOM:

Sunglasses - 80s Purple
Faux fur vest - BOOHOO
"Love Floral Puffs Blouse" - AWWDORE
White blouse skirt - Sugarlips
Wedges - Nine West

I'm not actually wearing a skirt -- it's my Sugarlips "Venetian Concierto blouse" wound twice around my waist! Since the top features an (unfortunately titled) 'pussybow' ribbon, I tied the sleeves around my waist once and fastened a bow with the ribbon over my hips, creating two neat little knots that look like a draping skirt. If you can't afford to shop for a staple piece -- get creative with what you already have! More often that not, altering your wardrobe won't involve even a stitch of sewing. 

Also, I realize that this outfit fundamentally represents something completely opposite of who I am or how I actually behave. It's neat, it's clean, it's pure in its ivory monochrome and romantic with its floral accents. Ironically, I'm messy and reckless, I rarely brush my hair and haven't touched up my dark roots in months, I sin more than once in a blue moon and I'm cynical to the core. But I read Victor Hugo's poetry to sort of... mellow out the corrosive spirit 'within'. And an all-white ensemble helps, too. Maybe the most honest element of this outfit is the fact that I have only have one acrylic nail still intact. The rest must have fallen off while I was arm-wrestling kitchen staff at the country club.

Everything is infinite,

  5. Haha, love your writing and thank you for not having perfect nails! I don't know how people do it all the time having their nails perfectly painted with no chips or whatever. I could never do it. I really like the outfit even if it's different from your usual style.

  6. Love this outfit so much, you're right is different to what you've been wearing recently, and different to how you come across in your writing, but actually I suspect deep down you're a real softie! I know you've been through some heart break in the last couple of months, but I'm sure that soon the romantic touches that used to shine through in your outfits a lot more will be back and you'll be as happy as you were before le garcon broke your heart. one day everything's gonna be ok, you and you gorgeous indie flick hubby will be swanning round on road trips every month, promise!

  14. My nails will be forever chipped. Our recent outfit is the exact opposite, but still the same style of monochrome. Great thugs think alike.

  15. I like the look, but I don't think it's very pure. You put so much of your style into it with the pattern, the necklaces and the tied blouse that it's definitely a varied outfit :)

  21. I love the way you're able to layer and mix to many pieces to create one look. So creative! I love your style, so inspirational! And I agree, usually, I stay away from white, but sometimes it brings something totally different to an outfit.
