The Calm Start of Spring

With the start of spring, I have been really appreciating finding good basic pieces to build outfits around. I have been on the hunt for well fitted high-waist trousers for a while now and finding a pair that fit like a glove is very rare. American Apparel high-waisted velvet pants were a miracle to come across, they come in both navy, black and oxblood and are “AWSUM” for outfit building.

For this outfit I paired my velvets with a cropped white vintage blouse with an organza collar that I purchased from “Awoke Vintage” on a recent shopping stroll around Williamsburg. Awoke Vintage is a cute petite store that started back in 2009 in Australia and now have a Flagship in Brooklyn! They have a fun collection of vintage blouses with fun lapels and collars, and oversized printed dress shirts that could look really cute in summer paired with denim shorts.

I accessorized my look with teal bow patent pumps that I bought from Charles and Keith during my Singapore trip and now finally got the chance to wear! The rest of my accessorizing comprised my statement scissor necklace that I purchased from SoWa market in Boston and my new fierce purple lipstick from Mac “Heroine”.
