One dress, three ways: Quirky

Here's the second look featuring my Sonja dress. I called it "quirky" because the big collar makes it a little unexpected. One of the reasons I liked the design of this pattern is that the high neckline is perfect for detachable collars. This one is made from a pattern by IMakeItYouMakeIt and I love the vintage look it adds to anything you wear it with.

I added a vintage leather clutch, open-toe wedges, put my hair up in a bun and worn a bright lipstick (have I ever told you I'm a lipstick junkie?).
To be honest, this is a look I really love and feel comfortable in, but that would attract too many weird looks for my taste in my small town of 3000 people.

Lipstick: Pupa
Clutch: vintage
Collar: handmade (pattern here
Shoes: Pimkie

  14. Here, the uniform for women this summer seems to be neon tank/t-shirt, leggings worn as trousers and weither flip-flops or boots. I mean... I know everyone has their taste, but sometimes I wonder if certain people own a mirror...

  18. Sorry, I don't really know if they have a specific name... Cut-out laced up cord wedges? Maybe in a couple months they'll be out again in stores with summer collections.
