WhatIWore: Finally! After a nice break from hair and makeup and taking outfit photos, I’m back today with yesterday’s look. I’ve had a burst of new inspiration coming from an old place - a folder of magazine tears from 2005-2011. I’m working on a little side project and while working my way through them I found old J.Crew catalogue images and photos from Lucky magazine, back in the day when the styling was so weirdo and on point at the same time. This look feels like something their editors might have come up with.
At least, it’s what I came up with using that vibe as inspiration. And I love it!

I want to point your attention in three directions: the dress, the sweater and the leather moto jacket. First up is the dress, something I sewed up for myself years ago from a retro pattern and only wore once one the blog. I like the pattern and wanted to wear it with a few more modern pieces, which is why I went with this sweater and moto jacket. To complete it all I put on my trusty booties, black beanie and some gray tights I’ve had for a loooong time (dug up this photo from 2008, for example!)
