First things first – have you uploaded a picture of you with your favorite bag (any bag at all) to Tweet My Bag? Rebecca Minkoff will be choosing a winner to receive one of her bags for free! What are you waiting for? Seriously you guys, enter! I want to see one of my readers win.

I made this Maisy dress the other night, with intentions of putting it up on the site. Then I wore it, because I haven’t done laundry and I had nothing to wear. Really. It’s ridiculous. I even made another dress to wear yesterday – how backwards is that? I don’t want to do laundry, so I make myself something. Today I am in pajamas and tomorrow, I swear I’ll get some laundry done. Really. I’ll probably end up selling both of the dresses after I wash them anyway, at a discounted price. So if you don’t mind wearing something I’ve already worn once, you might want to keep an eye out for discounted dresses!

Outfit Details:
vintage hat – thrifted
Maisy jersey dress – Postlapsaria
studded belt – from my mom’s store (I think)
tights – H&M
Her Majesty heels – courtesy of Seychelles
Rebecca Minkoff Nikki bag – on loan from Rebecca Minkoff and Tweet My Bag
vintage 70s jacket – a hand-me-down from my mom:)

Love love,
Keiko Lynn

    Your outfit reminds me of autumn, complete with spiced pumpkins and leaves and whatnot. πŸ™‚

    I think your hair curled like that in the cream beret is gorgeous! I also envy how you can just MAKE a dress as an alternative to doing laundry. Maybe the less laundry you do, the more productive you'll be! haha

  2. La fille d'Avril says: February 5, 20102:35 am

    aww…you are looking gorgeous! i love the dress and tights and the yellow heals are my favorite part!!

  3. Ce qui m'inspire says: February 5, 20102:37 am

    Cute dress! And that sounds like just the kind of thing I could end up doing: make myself something to wear instead of doing laundry!

  4. Catherine says: February 5, 20102:40 am

    lurrrrve the tights with those shoes. perfect color match xx

  5. M. says: February 5, 20102:42 am

  9. Mel says: February 5, 20102:59 am

    I love the orange explosion! All the colors are lovely together, reminds me of autumn πŸ™‚ Haha I love your laundry alternative, unfortunately I don't sew that fast to have a laundry alternative πŸ™

  10. Katie says: February 5, 20103:03 am

    I had no idea about that FTC regulation! Oh dear.

    Love the monochromatic outfit, burnt orange is one of my favorite colors.

  11. Anna says: February 5, 20103:19 am

    such a pretty jacket and you always look like a million (vintage) bucks! πŸ™‚

  12. mardijane says: February 5, 20103:20 am

    thats SO cool! i wish i had the patience πŸ™ but now i feel like sewing πŸ™‚ thank you!

  13. corrie says: February 5, 20103:32 am

    at least you made the dress! i go and buy socks/underwear/a new dress when i run out. anything to avoid laundry. it's ridiculous. i have a problem.

  14. β™₯Lola says: February 5, 20103:49 am

    So talented! If I could sew, I would never do laundry πŸ™‚

  15. Jessica Eubanks says: February 5, 20103:51 am

    one of your cutest outfits yet! so flattering πŸ™‚ i'd totally buy this. plus i doubt you're dirty so no one should care that you wore it lol

  16. Lexie says: February 5, 20104:10 am

    i imagine doing laundry in the city must be a pain! i can make it for a long time without doing laundry except in the sock department! so i'm stuck doing it at least every two weeks!f

  17. Out of Order says: February 5, 20104:10 am

    very cute, and so funny because I just did the same thing kinda. I have had a bright yellow plaid skirt on my etsy page for a while, and then just decided to take it back and wear it because I don't own anything bright and wanted to cheer myself up!

  18. Eli says: February 5, 20104:12 am

    wow, I love everything about this outfit!

  19. Eli says: February 5, 20104:16 am

    wow, I love everything about this outfit!

  20. Alyson says: February 5, 20104:26 am

    That orange looks DIVINE on you! Way to work it!

    Thank you for including in your post the FTC regulations. I think it is so very important to state when something is being sponsored or "paid for" by someone whether with free stuff or money.

  21. Erica Leigh says: February 5, 20104:42 am

    i entered tweetmybag yesterday! eeee i hope i win.

    and lol @ the making new things to avoid laundry. ;] that's too funny.


  22. Rosie says: February 5, 20104:53 am

    That dress is super cute!I can't believe you made it. Can you please go on project runway?!!

  23. Joanne Angelina says: February 5, 20105:12 am

    Keiko, I swear, there is never one time where you don't look stunning!! Each piece is just as charming and so superb, honestly it's inspiring me to go out and give a whack of change to my closet, sitting all dreary like a dull winter's day. I hope you have a lovely weekend! Thanks for brightening my evening luve!

  24. The Style Rider says: February 5, 20105:30 am

    I love how fall it is! You look so beautiful as if you belong with trees. I will be looking out for that dress!

  25. princesspolitico says: February 5, 20105:44 am

    I love the autumn colours! I have a pair of orange tights, a bit lighter than yours and I have never worn them. You inspired me!

    Seychelles have some amazing shoes!

  35. notjustmedical says: February 5, 201011:53 am

    You look so cute in that outfit! Did you name your dress after Maisy the mouse? She wears an orange top!


  36. A.M. says: February 5, 20101:13 pm

    I'm completely impressed that you can make a dress just to have something to wear. Wish I had that talent! And that jacket is very cool. What a great hand-me-down! Great look overall!

  37. nora says: February 5, 20101:46 pm

    Oh I love this outfit so much! the colour is so amazing! I always thought that orange is a difficult colour, didn't now how to pair it, but an (almist) total orange look? WOW, that looks good πŸ˜€

  38. Brunette and Pink says: February 5, 20102:54 pm

    I love the color combo! This is inspiring me to certainly add more color to my wardrobe. I must.quit.the black.NY.uniform… Lovely!

  39. Tara Diane says: February 5, 20103:06 pm

    uh… if I had the talent to just whip up a new dress to wear instead of doing laundry… yes, I would definitely do that, haha. VERY jealous.

  40. April says: February 5, 20103:14 pm

    i love the orange-orange-yellow-ness of this outfit πŸ™‚

  41. futurelint says: February 5, 20104:27 pm

    Too cute you made a dress instead of doing laundry! Sometimes I like waiting to do laundry for a really long time because it makes me wear things in my closet that have been hiding in there forever. Plus, if I decide I'd rather do laundry than wear a dress in the closet, it's time to get rid of the dress, I clearly don't like it anymore!

  42. julialuckett says: February 5, 20104:28 pm

  71. allison says: February 11, 20109:34 am

    I LOVE peter pan collars. I also love to sew- – I'm sure you make your own pattern, but I was wondering if you knew of any good patterns for a nice simple peter pan collar dress (mccalls, simplicity…etc)
    I can't find any anywhere πŸ™

    you are very talented!

  72. Anonymous says: February 11, 20102:02 pm
