The Gamine


Striped dress, J. Crew Factory Outlet. Leather belt, vintage Calvin Klein. Suede heeled booties, thrifted Bear Traps. Chambray motorcycle jacket, American Eagle. Vintage scarf.

     There's something about this jaunty little scarf that really makes an outfit. Pretty much anything I wear it with instantly becomes something I could call a "favorite"(such an overused blogger word) outfit. For something that I don't see a lot of my age donning, I still felt extremely confident with the little silk guy nuzzling my neck all evening. Somehow the darling knot made me feel like a mysterious movie character: a not so stereotypical gamine. 
     Or maybe it was just the fact that this is the first time I've gotten dressed up and put on make up since school got out. I choose to believe it was the magical scarf. 

P.S.- I'd really appreciate your votes on my entry into the Chictopia Magic Mirror contest! I've entered my pictures from my Snow White shoot, it's perfect! Click here to see my entry.

I just faved your entry into Chictopia's contest--I agree it is perfect! I love your dress by the way! I saw that in regular J Crew stores but it was too expensive. Wish I'd gotten a steal on it! :)

How in the world do you get your hair to look so effortlessly beautiful? I am so jealous mine never looks like that! x

GAAAHH I LOVE THIS. I totally agree about the scarf. (The overused phrase in the blogosphere, in my opinion, is "go-to.")

(P.S. Voted! That picture is just perfection. I need to enter that contest...)
