Is gold, floral brocade minimalist? Well, it’s all relative. In this case, I made a conscious effort to keep things very neutral to compensate for the eye-catching bottom half of this Moulinette Souers dress, and I think the result is understated chic. Is it presumptuous to declare myself chic? Probably. At any rate, I loved wearing this outfit.
This cropped Tabitha blazer was a recent thrift find, and I have a feeling it’s going to be a keeper. It’s hard to find cropped blazers that don’t look twee or “junior department”-esque, but I think this one manages to pass the test. Which is a good thing, because cropped blazers looked great with sheath dresses as well as high waisted skirts. This greige-y colour is versatile too, so I’ve got lots of remixing ideas. Stay tuned!
