The Clash

1.26.2013


Sanctuary Clothing Tweed Blazer, Mine Too Blouse, Warehouse Hobo bag (sample - similar here), Vintage pleated skirt, 
Vintage fedora (similar here), Thrifted studded belt, Hue navy tights, Target gloves (we love this pair too), 
Simply Vera Wang booties (last seen here).



The blouse and jacket that Lauren is wearing are two new items I picked up while at home in Texas over the holidays. I honestly never would have thought to pair them together, but I'm really digging the way Lauren combined them here and the resulting clash in print and textures. This is definitely a case of "you wouldn't think it would work--but it does."

We're both gearing up for Fashion Week right now and I still can't believe that it's right around the corner! One event we are definitely looking forward to is the IFB Conference. If you don't already have your tickets you need to get on it! It's one of the top blogging events of the year - 2 days of amazing speakers, workshops, DIY Tutorials and your best spot for networking. We'll be there the first day, so if you plan on going definitely come find us and say hi.

What are you waiting for? Get your tickets for IFBCON here.

  8. You have an amazing amount of cobalt in your wardrobe - and who can blame you? Not only does it look amazing in general but it looks amazing on you!

  24. well you have a knack of putting together unconventional items and making it work! the striped blouse complements the gloves beautifully, and the brown tones with the hat and bag all help pull the outfit together despite seemingly clashing items <3
