Iconic

denim2denim5denim4


Skirt? Ralph Lauren, thrifted Dress as shirt? French Connection Shoes? Derek Lam, Holt's Last Call Belt and clutch? Thrifted Bracelets? Crazy Lady at The Ex Hair? Tutorial here


I feel like this outfit is a bonnet and a sleeve away from being Little House on The Prairie. And if I ditch the skirt to reveal the rather short dress that I am wearing as shirt, my outfit could potentially be a pack of hair extensions and a contour spray tan away from being Gossip Girl. Basically, my outfit is somewhere between two iconic Americans; Laura Ingalls Wilder and Serena Van Der Woodsen.

And now we shall mourn that I flippantly dared to call Serena Van Der Woodsen iconic... Though let's be real, I mean no flippancy when I say that Laura Ingalls Wilder is iconic. She was pretty much my childhood hero...

This whole "re purposing" trend in clothing is SO smart and I really need to start doubling my dresses as tops! Great look (and I love "Little House on the Prairie).

Frannie Pantz said...

Talk about the best of both worlds! I love all the bright colors here and that top/dress is amazing! Your hair looks awesome like this as well.

Tori said...

I love that you referenced Little House. I sometimes worry that I'm the only girl who read the books or watched the show growing up! <3

newpetite said...

Please may I? said...

You are more fabulous than Laura or Serena could ever be!

I think your greencard is in the mail for this one.

briannelee said...

I love your hair!!!! I wish I could do fun things with my hair.

BESOS LYNN said...

I love your hair like this, very classic look! I have been looking for the shoes, with no luck!
besos,lynn

Sal said...

Gorgeous draping, ruffles, and pleats. I think you'd need a ditsy floral to ramp this up to Laura Ingalls Wilder territory, tho!

joceline said...

delurking to echo the many other people who love your hair. also the glasses. even if they're not real they look sweet (and bonus points if they are!)

Jody-Ann said...

Loving the color combo!

I love this outfit! One of my favorites for sure.

Eleanor said...

Somehow I ended up owning the crinoline from my aunt's wedding gown as a child. I ran around with reckless abandon in that thing pretending I was Half Pint.
When I realized I could never BE Laura Ingalls Wilder, I contemplated marrying an Amish man.
Would have been the closest thing to living Little House on the Prairie.....

Rebekah @ Shell Blog said...

adorable look. and serena is TOTALLY iconic in my book. ;)

greenbean said...

I thought you were going for Supergirl or Wonder Woman

Lisa - Archives Vintage said...

i spent most of my childhood with my nose in a laura ingalls wilder book! nothing about this outfit is prairie - just pure canadian hotness :)

Anonymous said...

I agree with greenbean, so wonder woman!

Kate said...

I need a 'how to' on your hair!!

Urban Jungle Fashion said...

I am in awe on the great idea of using your FC dress as a top. The color blocking effects works great for Fall.

Hello there! This is kind of off topic but I need some
advice from an established blog. Is it very difficult
to set up your own blog? I'm not very techincal but I can figure things out pretty quick. I'm thinking about making my
own but I'm not sure where to start. Do you have any ideas or suggestions? With thanks

I believe everything published made a great deal of sense.
However, think about this, what if you added a
little information? I mean, I don't wish to tell you how to run your website, but what if you added a headline that makes people want more? I mean "Iconic" is kinda plain. You ought to peek at Yahoo's home page and watch how they create article titles to grab people to open the links.
You might add a related video or a related pic or two
to get people interested about what you've got to say. Just my opinion, it would make your posts a little bit more interesting.
