Having those versatile pieces in our closet can make styling outfits quick and painless. However, those versatile pieces are usually grouped in the
basic pile (e.g. a white tee or little black dress).
Having flexible pieces that have more life and appeal is a total MUST–like this ultra cool Motel Ice Cream Dress for instance.
This killer number is neutral in colour, has an easygoing neckline, and is covered in sequins for amazing texture and charm. I’ve styled the dress in two ways: a mellow everyday look and dazzling nighttime get-up.
(also, I have hair all of the sudden! Lush Hair Extensions, for those of you who are wondering)
Nothing wrong with getting a little knotty.

Totally channeling my ‘past’ self in with this look–private schoolgirl at heart. Paired the righteous skirt with a MINKPINK coat I wear every odd day and a Brian Lichtenberg beanie I wear every even day, and sometimes I wear them on both days.
It’s one of those days.

Love this Pylo lace set! Fits like a glove. I have an extra shirt in this style in a size (S) small, so I’m giving it away on my Instagram (@xandervintage)!

Colours I wouldn’t dare to pair together years ago, are now all in one outfit together—and you know what…they make an extremely happy family. Brown and black? Used to go against style rules. Black and Navy? Used to go against style rules.
Style rules? Blasphemy! Style is personal, subjective and should be set by yourself alone.
I like eccentric. So I’ma be eccentric. Don’t be afraid to be you.

I feel like if I wore this in the 70′s I would fit right in. The only thing missing are some major bell-bottoms.
I love utilizing red as an accent hue. It adds an intense pop of colour and is extremely eye-catching–especially when you wear it in the form of a hat, socks, and a cool poncho.
Obsessed with Shelly’s London footwear! Nothing shy of ordinary in their line of shoes. My type of foot-protector, for sure!

Favorite aspects of this look: over-sized tassel scarf and fluffy heels.

Turtlenecks are a great layering piece. They create dimension to an outfit and add that extra warmth we could all use this time of year. This is totally a summer dress, but I layered the striped turtleneck underneath to make it winter-friendly. Vested it. Belted it. And threw on a pair of chucks to make the look super everyday and casual.

Couldn’t say it better myself:
“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” - Mark Twain
Make 2015 a year to remember! xo
Layering some brights today. Love the look of this preppy sweater against some major orange and purple. This Southwestern jacket was an awesome vintage score last year, and it’s the first time I’ve worn it out. And the fact that it matches my hair is no coincidence.
