+ Nasty Gal Collection Try to Defy Leather Bustier + Zara Skirt + Nasty Gal Prestige Leather Pump + Forever 21 Necklace +

There are some pieces in my closet that I absolutely love but don’t wear so much. Most of those get sold but some of them sit there waiting for the perfect piece to go with it. I bought this leather bustier from Nasty Gal right before I graduated college and wore it a couple times, but it didn’t go with anything as well as it did with this skirt. I even had it for a while, wearing this skirt during my stint in corporate America, and didn’t even think of this combination. It always feels good to make discoveries in what you already own. Definitely still down to breath more life into these pieces though! We’ll see what happens with them next :)

For Love & Lemons Orchid Crop Top + For Love & Lemons Orhic Bondage Bralette + Vintage Liz Claiborne Jeans + Aldo Ocaria Pumps +

This was my last (and favorite!) look that was featured in The Lady Project‘s Woman of Style feature. I got so busy in RI that I let so much of my clothes sit around and not get shot for the blog, but I was so excited to realize that I still had this top/bralette combo still waiting when Olivia approached me for the feature. FL&L always has the coolest pieces, and all I find myself interested in buying these days. Definitely on the lookout for new brands, just because so many good ones have popped up lately!

+ Lovecat Dress via Calico + Charles by Charles David Pact Pumps (different color) +

Here are a few more shots from my Woman of Style feature by Olivia Rodrigues for The Lady Project. I’m so crazy about this dress. It’s the quintessential ‘Melanie silhouette’ (fit and flare with a mini cut), along with the perfect deep V and of course I can’t deny anything with a large palm print! I paired it with some black pumps, a simple collar necklace, and a cocktail ring, and called it a day. So excited to wear this around Miami!
