Look-Book: Purple, Red & Vintage!!

Monday, February 20, 2012

Hope everyone enjoyed a lovely weekend. I spent mine running errands for my upcoming “Oh, Poppy!” store. I’m absolutely in the throws of this new project and loving it. I just found some fabulous & local wholesalers, so I picked up all of my supplies on Saturday. You can see my newest creation here! Then on Sunday, Martin & I went on the prettiest nature walk; it’s something we’re hoping to do more often. I’m trying to be really disciplined about not working all the time. You gotta enjoy life too, right?!
I love colour! I’ve always wanted to style red & purple together. It’s such a fun combination, and when I received this dress from my good friend Emily of EL Vintage, I knew that throwing in some red tights would be perfect & so much fun. If you’d like to nab your own piece of vintage goodness then be sure to use code "15girlcloset" to receive 15% off. Yay! These days I can not get enough of pretty vintage pieces!
Well as for other little blog updates?! I’ve got two new exciting blog projects to share with you guys! One of which is a “Girl & Closet” post I’m putting together with Elle Magazine’s Rue La La (super excited!). And the second?! I just found out last week that I’m one of the newest ModCloth Style Ambassadors for 2012. Hooray! Yup, that's what I shouted when I received the email. I’ll be sure to keep you posted on all the fun details. ;) xo veronika
Outfit Details:
Dress - c/o EL Vintage

  41. Purple and red are such a natural combination, and yet definitely not one I've been brave enough to try outside the realm of contrasting accessories... Yet. This look is definitely giving me some inspiration for pieces that I already have in my closet - and I am loving your take on winter sandals, you just cannot do any wrong with those JCs, they are amazing :) Glad to hear Oh Poppy! is coming along well, and that you have more exciting projects in the works as well. Hope your week is off to a good start, my friend!
