GOLD DUST

Crown Headband from Icing's, Vintage Cashmere Sweater, Sequin Midi Skirt c/o Ida Sjöstedt, Vintage Tapestry Purse, Gold Sandal Heels from Nine West

Photos by Christopher from Unbearably Stylish

Although I feel that my style fluctuates every few months, I find that one mode of dressing I always return to is a fairytale-inspired style. There is a playful charm in getting dressed up like a princess, but a sophistication in crafting such a look with more grown-up pieces such as midi skirts and strappy heels. 

This golden crown is one of my most treasured finds (can you believe I found it at Icing's for $5?), as well as this vintage tapestry purse I got on Etsy for $15! The cashmere sweater was thrifted from Beacon's Closet for $18, while the sandals are the heels that I wore from my senior prom. 

The focal point of this outfit for me was this beautiful Ida Sjöstedt skirt from the Tictail pop up shop in New York. Tictail is an e-commerce platform that allows individuals to set up their own online store for free, and they have so many amazing up and coming designers and artists selling their items on it! Of the many brands the people at Tictail introduced me to during my store visit, Ida Sjöstedt was my favorite, and I was so happy to take home this incredible midi skirt! It is such a great piece for when you want to add glamour to your outfit but don't want to commit to wearing a full length gown for example.

A final thank you to my boyfriend Chris for taking these photos for me! If you have a minute, please check out his Instagram too :) And a happy 2015 to all you guys too!
