Some readers have expressed concern over the lack of color in my ensembles, as of late. It didn’t even occur to me until it was pointed out! I guess I have been gravitating toward more muted tones; I tend to go through phases. I felt like being very colorful, so I threw on some primary hues and MAC Russian Red lipstick. I always feel a little silly when I buy Forever 21 and H&M stuff second hand, but I really liked that this could be worn as a dress or as a vest, and that it was under $10.

One thing can be said about wearing bright colors: it makes it almost impossible to be in a bad mood!

Outfit Details:
Forever 21 wrap dress (worn as vest) and Calvin Klein heels – Beacon’s Closet

Walk ‘n roll top and blue skirt (from last year; no longer available) – courtesy of ModCloth
belt – thrifted

Love love,

  1. I love the red lipstick too! It completes the look. And, I love how creative you got by wearing a dress as a vest. Our designers at kmartdesign.com are always saying to wear things differently and in unexpected ways.

  2. I'm loving this vest on you. And the wavy hair- reminds me of mine!

    And there's nothing wrong with muted colors– makes you feel sophisticated or like an old-fashioned stunner (or at least to me it does!).

    Anyhow, have a lovely evening sweet girl!

  3. i think i saw you the other day in the west village ๐Ÿ˜€
    you had a pretty white lace dress and you were with two girls. i got starstruck for a minute.

  4. I think you look great no matter what you wear! From what I've seen you do a great mix of everything from neutrals, to mixing in color, to darker contrasts etc. Don't change anything! Although this is an inspiring look for me. I rarely wear brights – never brave enough.

    Love your blog!

  5. I love that wrap dress/vest you've got going on! I love the print; somehow it fits the "Russian red" lipstick. It gives me a Russian vibe. Maybe I'm insane. Anyway, this whole outfit is so cute and fun, and I love your hair down!

  6. I love the creativity of the dress used as a vest. I would have never thought of that! I love your blog! You give me so much fashion inspiration! Kudos to you!

  7. Ahh! I totally bought of one their satchels today, like just now! I bought the chestnut in 15" and I'm soooo excited to get it. :)))

    Love and Turtledoves,

  8. Aw, Keiko, this outfit is adorable. Primary colors are so fun, and I love that bright satchel. Now you've got me thinking of gettin my primary colors on!
    And as always your make-up and hair are stunning.

  9. I totally agree – sometimes when I feel down I intentionally wear more colors to lift myself up. (Especially in winter.)
    Love the shot with yellow bag against blue skirt – those colors work together so good!

  10. Those colors choices are amazing, you look amazing! The bag and vest are probably my favorite parts of this look ๐Ÿ™‚
    xo, Spencer
    P.S. wear your hair down more, it's so pretty ๐Ÿ™‚
