First of all, best news ever:
I was on Refinery29 last week! In a slideshow, among some of my favorite Chicago bloggers, wearing my Mayflower Girl outfit. Quite possibly the coolest thing that's happened to me, ever. Check it out over here!

Secondly, the other coolest thing that's ever happened to me: this jacket.
This is what I wore to the opening night of Henri Bendel in Chicago a couple of weeks ago.

This is not an outfit in which to be a wallflower. I had never been approached so often by strangers in my life. I think that sequins have magical powers. And these ones in particular are SO magnetic - the shine and texture on them creates a fur-like effect. I cannot think of anything on earth as ridiculous and glamorous as furry sequins.

The black chiffon edges keep this jacket from being so Michael Jackson it stops being cute (though I did feel kind of like MJ in it, in the best way). That plus the vertical ruffle on the blouse keep it ladylike.

Honestly I wore navy tights because I couldn't find any black ones - gahaha - but I think it was for the best. Black may have been too harsh. 


I love how even the camera lens looks textured here.
I hope you're having a perfect Sunday!
Come say hey!
