Kimono Top- Wilfred (Aritzia), Pleated Skirt- BCBGeneration, Eyelet Crop- Free People, Belt- Vintage, Silver/Gold Cross Bracelet- Courtesy of Konstantino, Oxfords- Steve Madden, the usual random jewelry
I know the last two photos are sorta redundant, but we were really trying to get some good shots of that Konstantino bracelet. Sadly, we didn't really manage to do it justice. The piece is unbelievable- there is a little diamond in the center of each cross, and all this filigree-esque detailing. I sort of don't feel worthy of such lovely flair, I mean, notice the white plastic tile bracelet I chose to wear next to it? That's some classy lady shit right there. Madeline has oft mentioned her addiction to Konstantino jewelry (which works out well since they employ her), and I'm pretty sure I get it now. Apparently they make everything by hand in Greece or something, which is awesome, but I would be fine if it were all churned out on some assembly line operated by chimps- the jewelry is just that pretty. Oh, so I have decided I need one of their chunky rings, like, tomorrow. Super early birthday present, Joey!
So we spotted this random nature-y (by our pathetic North Texas standards) area just off the highway, which was random. Our decision to explore resulted in these sort of weird location photos. Because I always wear a pleated pink skirt (and balls-out jewelry) on the woodsy banks of dirty streams! The outfit may have made a bit more sense in a relatively urban environment, but I'm kinda wearing all my current favorites at once, which is always nice. The BCBGeneration skirt fulfills my need for pleats quite well (although there's a Karen Walker pleated midi-length I've been desperately trying to track down).
I actually feel like BCBGeneration is my little secret. Maybe people expect the clothes to be sorta "teenaged chippy interviewing for her first part-time job". That's what I assumed, since BCBG can be pretty "After work, let's go get awful sugary cocktails then watch Sex and the City 2 for the fiftieth time!". That made no sense. More succinct version: BCBG can sometimes (sometimes!) be tacky, so people might assume BCBGeneration is just teen tacky. However! The store is actually a wonderland of pretty pastels, twee prints, and very cool jewelry. Also, vanity sizing! I can pretend I'm a size 25 pant (that's like four sizes off) when shopping there.
Welllll, happy weekend all- I have a really good giveaway with Urban Revisions coming up next week, so watch out for that!
BTW: I linked a few things in this post. The strange gaps in my basic computer knowledge make linking sort of mystifying for me- so let's just all hope for the best, k?
