Sylvia and I at it again! We have deemed our tradition of snapping outfit shots, scarfing down pasta, and scurrying off to rehearsal Photoshoot Monday.
My mom snagged this coat for me at the thrift store. I am so in love with the color, it's the perfect vibrant shade of pumpkin orange. So right for fall! Now I match all the lovely trees.
This shapeless silk dress has surprisingly proved one of the most versatile pieces in my wardrobe. With the help of one measly safety pin, it becomes the most chic blousy top imaginable. I got lots of compliments on it today, but it was relatively embarrassing changing for gym when I had to unpin the thing and pull off my potato sack dress in front of everyone. Ahem. The process of putting together a complex outfit should definitely remain behind closed doors!
Finally, a pair of high-waisted pants! These are so comfortable and fit perfectly, and rolling them up gives them the most retro fifties feel. I love the volume of the top juxtaposed with the slim cut of the bottoms. As you have probably discerned, I love balancing silhouettes like this.
Normally when we take outfit pictures together, Sylvia and I never match. Not only that, but we usually clash horrifically. By some sartorial twist of fate, our colors complemented each other flawlessly today - at least we thought so! This is just a little sneak peak of her outfit, but hopefully she will blog further about it soon!

I wish I had gotten a chance to blog this weekend, but I was insanely swamped with a U.S. history project that counts for twenty-five percent of my first quarter grade. Yikes! I literally spent twelve straight hours on it yesterday, and I think it turned out alright.
Tell me, what are you all dressing up as for Halloween? Dressing up any other day of the year never gives me problems, but when it comes to Halloween I am always disturbingly uncreative!
P.S. I had a delightful time looking at all the inspirational blogs you guys mentioned! I really love knowing what inspires everyone.
