debut for an oldie




Outfit Details:
dress - Madewell
belt - thrifted
Nikki messenger bag - Ben Minkoff, borrowed from Bobby
Ampersand heels - Seychelles 
jewelry - Vanessa Mooney and Karen London
flower brooch - vintage, gift from my mom

I seem to wear this Madewell dress almost weekly, so it's a little surprising that this is the first time it's made it to the blog. I have a pretty extensive closet that teeters on the edge of insanity, but I seem to wear a lot of the same stuff, over and over. I can't decide if it's a matter of convenience or attachment. As long as I can remember, I've always had something that my mom referred to as my "old faithful." In high school, it was a hideous pair of sandals, then a pair of flats, then a denim motorcycle jacket. It dates back to childhood, really, though my old faithfuls weren't clothes, back then. She had to trick me into giving up my blanket (which I called my "bee-kon"), but even to this day, would never dream of doing that with Snowball, my panda whom I've had since I was a toddler. Some old faithfuls always make the cut.

  26. Awww that's cute. I still have all my pandas from childhood. My favorite toy was my Mickey Mouse doll. The poor thing was all but destroyed by the time my childhood was done with it. My mother and sister found the exact one at a thrift store, new condition, and gave it to me for my birthday this year. I cried.
