Purple Violets

Ralph Lauren sweater. Lina Tsai skirt. Vintage costume charm, painted pocket watch & pearl (a 13th birthday present) necklaces. Satellite mesh & shadow facet bracelets. Dolci Calze argyle tights. Chanel oxfords.
Today I masqueraded as a schoolgirl princess (Gossip Girl playing the young Queen Victoria)... Purple (the color of royalty) is represented by a cashmere cable-knit pullover & a pair of argyle tights; a pleated miniskirt printed with pink 'Gracie' girls twirls over a pair of patent leather oxfords; and some paste jewelry envelops my neck & wrist.
Good students get A's, but bloggers get features! First Erin from tog & trappings (we share a passion for Bernardo Bertolucci's movie, The Dreamers) shared some inspirational bloggers - I'm honored to make the list. Then Us Trendy (an online fashion community for fledgling designers) published an article I wrote on the 2009 Bal Crillon des Debutantes (which was noteworthy for a blogger's attendance (Jane from Sea of Shoes). Thanks so much to my readers & watchers.


  1. I am in love with all your jewelry. It's so beautiful. And overall I love this outfit. I like how your skirt just pops. Lovely.

  2. Congratulations on all the blogosphere success! I absolutely adore this sweater and those beautiful bracelets. They actually look like embellishments on the sleeve! So gorgeous.

    In Paris I will be taking a class on literature, art history, photography, and fashion! I could not be more excited!!
