December :: Tiered ruffles & Luxe Guide

Moda Holiday-4

Happy Wednesday everyone!  When it comes to fashion, I take inspiration from what I see on the streets and also what I see online.  I love being creatively challenged and especially love seeing shapes that I usually shy away from showcased online.  While I’m a huge fan of tailored pieces, I also enjoy experimenting with oversized silhouettes.

I was inspired by the proportion play of this Rochas dress, shape of this Rick Owens dress, and silhouette of this J.W. Anderson dress.  All of these elements gave me fuel to wear this dress (it’s actually a top and bottom worn together to make up a ruffled dress).  I love how the oversized top gives it a retro feel while the skirt enhances the ruffles by creating a tiered dress look.

As the source of my fashion inspiration continues to grow, I also find myself constantly lurking at other areas during this time of the year.  Talking about retro… these sunglasses are perfect for someone who loves updated classics!  As my eyes wander and my imagination starts to play, I put together a holiday gift guide that hopefully will also fancy your eyes!  Beautiful gifts for her (love that clutch and bear!), delightful gifts for him (adore that watch and travel bag!), and charming gifts for home (that luggage!).
