For Madison

For Madison

“Always how how short is too short—be it a dress, haircut, heels, or a man.”

For Madison

I was told that a sweet young lady in Hawaii likes seeing my blog and seeing what I have put together. With that in mind, I have decided to offer a little advice to my friend so far away. First, when someone compliments you, smile, accept it, and most importantly, believe it. Second, dress like a lady and people will treat you like one. That’s why I am showing this blouse from Hudsen Armidi (still available at the Warehouse as far as I know) with its beautifully detailed system textures. (Yes, system pieces STILL work if they are done well.) I pair it with this flirty dream of a French skirt from Kinu Mayako with its wide white belt, which is the epitome of style. With a clutch from Daphne Klossovsky at the recently remodeled HANDverk store and strappy sandals from Gospel Voom, I think I have assembled a pretty look for my friend, Madison.

For Madison

I may seem a bit overdressed but as the adage goes, Madison, you can never be overdressed or overeducated (and in this instance I am both). Of course, the conversation piece of my look is this hat from Amberly Boccaccio that is being offered at Collabor88. I chose the white one because, blessedly, Amberly left the hat modifiable so I could change the rose to a color I liked. My lovely skin from Tricky Boucher provides a neutral palette so the colors of this look can pop. And MissAllSunday Lemon is offering this hair with a couple others at Fantasy Faire, benefitting Relay for Life, and going on right now.

One last thing, Madison: Never downplay your intelligence. Dumb is not cute. Integrity, dignity and wisdom are the real indicators of beauty.

  1. Ah the famous Audrey Quote. She’s on two magazine covers this month, a LIfe retrospective and Vanity Fair.

    I’m a firm believer in “always overdress then take off one piece of jewelry”

    and nice hat.
