Madewell trouser jeans & brogues, vintage top, center: inside the Century City store.

Hi! Long time no outfit post. Above is a look I tried on (and ultimately bought) at the Refinery29 hosted denim event last week with Madewell. Earlier in the day I was invited to mix and match some of their pieces with my own vintage for R29′s site. It was a fun bout of dress up and I ended up purchasing a lot of what I tried on (including the jeans, a top and some shorts from the sale rack) at the party later that night.

In other news, I got glasses! All the hours logged at computer screens (I like maximum brightness) finally took a toll on my formally 20/20 vision. It’s cool though, at least now I can say “yes” when people ask “are your glasses prescription?”… even though that prescription is pretty light and I find myself wearing them less for corrective reasons and more because I get a reverse Clark Kent/Superman complex when I put them on. Hipster super powers or something.

And I love Natalie (FashionIntel) for totally making this photo from the event:

    You look so cute! First, I love that you pulled off a hat + clip combo. Second, I love that you wore flats and managed to look so effin’ chic! That’s a huge deal for me since I walk so much these days. It’s hard to make that work!

    More outfit posts, please!

    XXo,

    I agree with the readers below, Madewell x Vintage outfit is bella beautiful.

    And the glasses is a nice touch. You are giving me a very forward-thinking and inventive appearance. Apt, I suppose.
