This weekend, I did a little credit card damage at Madewell...again. It is quickly becoming one of my favorite stores, and I usually wait until the sale items are an additional 25% off before I can even think of buying any of it. But it is just so perfect. And one of my purchases, this olive green dress, has inspired what I hope will be the first in a series of JSQ Lookbook posts. I am really into styling pieces, and accessorizing, and I figured this unusual dress is the perfect place to start. So, here's how I'd wear it, with some high and low end pieces mixed in:
2 Sichuan Silk Twill scarf, 36" // Hermes
3 Merona "Marled Edge" Floppy Hat // Target
4 Wide Leatherette Belt // Forever 21
5 Boehl wood bracelet // Aldo
6 The canvas boardwalk brogues // Madewell
I tend to put together outfits in my head like I'm wearing a costume. While wearing this, I'd be going to a garden party on Jay Gatsby's lawn in the dog days of summer.
