Brooklyn Style: Typing Notes

Bettys, I am SO proud of this outfit! This is one of those dresses that hung in my closet for, umm, years. It was kind of expensive, I adore the flouncy skirt ... but I bought it when I was a little heavier & the top looks too big worn bare. Also the waist hits below my waist, so it's not flattering on it's own AND I can't belt it with the seam {my go to trick}. Friends, I tried this dress on with EVERY item I could think of in my wardrobe! I knew if I couldn't make it work I had to clear the clutter & let it go. And then this happened. And I did a little happy dance at my amazing powers of stying. Superhero in Brooklyn.

Can we take just a moment to acknowledge how incredible photographer Bess Friday is? From the crisp sunshiney Parisian shoot to the classic prep library to these cozy vintage frames. Delta Gamma sorority produces some talented sisters! Can't wait to play with her again!

P.S. Would love to know which of the three looks is your favorite! Always a good exercise to see how other people view your style so leave me a comment, why don't ya?
