Uptown Girl

Ralph Lauren cardigan. Marc by Marc Jacobs dress. Leopard print belt. Vintage costume pearl pendant necklace worn as headband. Vintage costume pendant necklace. Vintage costume mosaic & charm bracelets. Betsey Johnson houndstooth tights. Chloé 'Edith' bag. Chanel ballerinas.
This ensemble pops with bright colors (bubblegum-hued cashmere enlivens a gold lace dress) but is anchored by neutral shades (a ponyhair leopard print belt complements a pair of brown/white houndstooth tights). My Chloé 'Edith' bag is special not least because it shares a name with my mom, but it also reminds me of a photographer's satchel circa 1970.
Today's outfit is an homage to Brittany Murphy's character in the movie Uptown Girls, wherein she plays a champagne bubble of a girl leading a charmed life; I often employ her wardrobe/effervescence as a point of reference. Ms. Murphy's death shocked the world yesterday - she'll be remembered as a sparkly sprite both on & offscreen.


  1. I love this outfit. Especially since that dress is from Gossip Girl.

  2. I am loving your dress and that bag is absolutely gorgeous! Hope you're having a wonderful week.

  3. I am so sad about Miss Murphy. Your look today reminds me of Alice in Wonderland. Maybe it's the tights and pink combo. I also featured you in a post I did about bloggers that inspire me. Have a lovely day.

  4. Oh, you look so beautiful, dear! That dress and the bag are so so gorgeous<3 T
    hank you for the birthday wishes and putting my blog on your blogroll! You're on mine for quite some time now:) :*

  5. This so pretty! I love the pink!

  6. This is one of my very favourite ensembles ever I do believe. I love your mixing of prints and textures, and also the neautral palette with that amazing pop of pink. I really want the dress and cardigan for myself. :)
