Maritime






Outfit Details:
Orla Kiely romper - Gilt (also crazy about this dress version)
belt - thrifted
hat - H+M
Seychelles glitter platforms
Coach bag (c/o)
Elizabeth and James Lafayette sunglasses - Shopbop
lipstick: MAC Russian Red

I've had this little romper on my "wishful thinking" list since the first day I saw it, but couldn't afford to pay full price for it. Ever the bargain hunter and perpetual window shopper, I was browsing Gilt's featured sales of the day - and like kismet, they had it for a fraction of the price, with one left in my size. With my referral credits, I ended up with an absolute steal, paying approximately what the taxes would have been. Sometimes, it pays to be patient and peruse the sales sections and discount sites!




p.s. I'm currently in Los Angeles with Helena! Follow our getaway on instagram.

  5. Hey Keiko, I've followed your blog since 2007, it was the first fashion blog I ever discovered and it's still the only one I've never got tired of!

    Could you do a post on styling your short hair? It always looks so amazing and I have short hair too, sometimes it feels like there's limited options (ie straight, or after the gym sweaty)! I notice you maybe tease it or comb it back (?) and I was intrigued how you do it.

  11. This is adorable! I want one! I am exactly the same way- I try not to pay retail price for anything and I will hunt for weeks to find a good deal on something I really want. Patience is a virtue!

  12. wow nice job! I guess I ned to be resourceful- I always just assume when I see a great designer piece out of my price range that there's no way I could ever get it. yay internets!
