Gritty Glam

1.22.2013


Simply Vera Wang shearling jacket (similar here), Thrifted Stylestalker dress (how cool are all their dresses though?), Alexander Wang platform sandals (also worn here), Vintage clutch (similar here), Hue tights. 




I really do love it when Lauren has a semi-fance event that she needs to attend. One, she typically buys a new dress for the occasion (which by extension means a new dress for me that I get to borrow later) and two, we get to shake up the blog a bit since we're typically posting more casual, day-to-day looks. My only regret about these pics is that you can't see the top of the dress - it's leather and strapless with a sweetheart neckline and it's unbelievably flattering.

Lauren took this dress out for a spin to an engagement party, keeping modestly warm in a cropped shearling coat. Notice how the texture of the jacket matches the paint splattered print on the dress? With her, nothing is ever accidental.

xx, M

PS. We're on Google+! Like most people we're still trying to figure everything out but so far loving the fresh layouts >> Come hang out with us!

  43. In my opinion, just thought i should say, bonds are really good for friendship and the community.They will allow free to play members to pay membership and go onto members worlds, doing more quests, becoming better players, and all in all, make new friends.With bonds, members are more likely to become friends with non members as, before, a member would never have a reason to go to a non member world
