For as much as I sing the praises of an understated, minimalist wardrobe, I'm still a sucker for a bold vintage dress. I found this gem during a sad, final visit to Red Light Capitol Hill, my favorite Seattle vintage store, days before it closed for good. Bittersweet.
In an attempt to modernize my '80s-era look, I threw on a smattering of delicate geometric jewelry — in particular this silver- and copper-plated half-circle bracelet from Brooklyn designer Sayaka Davis. I love the way it fastens around my wrist with three delicate chains.
My basic-as-can-be black heels are from Zara, and my 3.1 Phillip Lim mini Pashli bag is from Nordstrom. Speaking of which, this bag has gotten me some serious mileage! I've owned it for more than two years now, and it's still going strong. I am, however, one of those weirdos who refuses to unzip the expanding sides. I dunno, something about it just feels unsettling. Anyway, every so often I have to remind myself that hey! This investment piece paid off — feel good about it!
