jux·ta·pose

Didn't the weekend zip by? I had a productive one, filled with fabric shopping and sewing. :)

I've had this dress for nearly 3 years.  I think it was one of the first pieces I thrifted.  This is the second time I've worn it.  I really should wear it more often.  I think I might use it again next week for my birthday!  I knew this dress would go perfectly with this gorgeous OWLITA feather earring that Ashley (creator/designer) sent over.  The earring is made of natural and hand dyed feathers.  The craftswomanship is exquisite.  There is a lot of love and attention to detail that goes into each design.  Snatch up you very own Owlita feather earring(s), here.  There are so many rad designs and colors to choose from.  Some of my faves would be the Prairie NaturalPrairie Black & White, and the Prairie Plum.

As for the rest of the look, I love the juxtaposition of the softness of the dress and the wild JC shoe.  My new over-sized faux leather clutch (DIY'd by yours truly) also adds another element of edge.  Me likes!!

{dress:  thrift | shoes: Jeffrey Campbell "Lana" | clutch: DIY by me | earring: c/o OWLITA}

Love, S

Ah! Hello gorgeous! I love the dress and shoes ;) I haven't picked up a pair of Litas or Lanas yet but I'm debating between the two since they're so similar. I love the earrings and DiY clutch as well, does add a nice edge.

How many times I have said I want to DIY that clutch too. But I am just not motivated. Did you use like leather material to make it? You look very sweet in the dress. If you didn't mention about the earrings I thought that's your hair extension. Very cool :P
