A few weeks ago, my roommates from Oxford and I planned a roomie reunion. What started as a plan involving tapas, Sangria, and some kind of cake (preferably bigger than the tapas) slowly evolved into a Girl’s Night Out photo shoot (as suggested by Elizabeth (ahem, Evey) of Evey Photography, who recently won Silver for Solo Journalist Multimedia Story or Essay at the Worldwide College Photographer of the Year Awards). Everyone was psyched, but as the date loomed nearer, it occurred to us that we didn’t know what to expect from this photo shoot. All of us had been envisioning a Mary Kate and Ashley makeover scene (which inevitably happened in every direct-to-home-video as they emerged out of the revolving door of a schwanky shop in whatever city the plot thinly hinged around this time), but clearly, that was unrealistic. Fearing a flop, Elizabeth specifically asked me if I’d bring some of my hat collection, and while packing the day of, I went a bit overboard with all the stuff I brought, which resulted in the ensembles below.
Dress: Adrianna Papell
Shoes: Pour La Victoire
After seeing the pictures (of clothes primarily from my closet), it got me thinking. How many of us have odd, crazy, and/or eccentric pieces we’d love to wear but let collect dust in want of an occasion? As a fashion blogger, I seem to constantly accumulate clothes but often get nervous of repeating… It’s for this reason, I’m happy to announce that beginning January 1st, 2015 (just in time for your New Years Resolution), I will be able to offer a solution: the Eccentric Glamour Link-up.
How Will It Work?
The first three days of every month, I will host a link-up on my blog. The only requirement to join will be that your post showcase a forgotten or obscure item in your closet that, for some unfortunate reason of another, has fallen out of the circulation its magnificence deserves. Then, mention the link-up in your post and add a hyperlink to my page, allowing us all to appreciate the handsome gems we ladies dig up!
Let me know if you have any questions or opinions, I’m super excited about it, so also feel free to RSVP below. I’ll advertise continually as time grows nearer, but in the meantime, only 18 more days, and I hope to see you there!
Shoes: La Perla
Green Dress: Haute Hippie | Green Shoes: Mui Mui | Black (Dress worn as) Top: Kiki de Montparnasse
Roommate Love Forever!
All items without descriptions are vintage (with the exception of Erin’s tutu and cheetah dress, which were hers. If you’re super interested, let me know, and I’ll find out for you. Hope you enjoyed our looks as much as we did making them (though it’s extremely doubtful). Again, all photo credit goes to Evey Wilson.
