Purple Shades

DRESS / TOP: Free People (the style name is so good!) | DENIM: SP (last season) (similar HERE & HERE) | HEELS: Steve Madden | SUNGLASSES: Ray-Ban (they are in stock) | HANDBAG: Chanel (Classic Maxi in Black) (dupes HERE & HERE) | EARRINGS: Vintage Chanel | WATCH: Michele | BRACELETS: Hermes, David Yurman, here, here, here | LIPS: 'Up The Amp

I got this 'top' in San Fran w/Caitlin and I literally would have never guessed it would be a dress on anyone until I saw a friends snaps on the lake and she was wearing it as a dress. I sized down so that it would be fitted and not too long but I guess I could have sized up and made it a... mini dress?! Haha. Anyway, I'm almost 5'7 so if you are shorter, this will be a dress! All of my gfs that are under 5'5 told me they were it as a dress. It comes in a few colors & I liked the other colors better but I had just purchased this handbag and wanted something black to wear it with! (typical girl move, right?)

Anyway, I just want to say thank you for the sweet words on yesterdays post about residency + anniversary. To be honest, writing a post on residency is out of my comfort zone. I've learned that the internet is a tough place - people can be so critical & cruel and I just didn't know how that would go over - I would never want to come across as a complainer, but I also don't want to pretend like this whole residency thing is easy and mislead anyone. Okay, enough about that - hope you all have a fun weekend!! <3 I'm doing something kind of fun at the end of the weekend and I can't wait to share.

  3. Fantastic mono outfit, very sophisticated and totally styled to perfection.

  4. This is most certainly a top in my book- how could someone bend over or have a slight breeze blow their way, much less sit down and not show the world the stuff they own :/ ( even if someone is 5'5 !)
    Anyway, I really love your style and your inspiring looks !!! It's so carefree looking and classy but modern at the same time .
