Recreate the look with Marlen's Add A Ribbon To It tutorial:
How would you describe your style?
It's vintage chic with a touch of modern! Before I used to aspire to look slightly Lucille Ball-esque, but now I feel my style changing towards "60's college kid chic". Very specific, huh? Haha!
What's your favourite piece in your wardrobe?
My denim pinafore! It literally goes with *everything* and is so comfy.
Who are your style icons?
Doris Day and Erin from the blog Calivintage I'd ransack her closet in a heartbeat.
Do you have any favourite designers?
Hmm since I usually shop vintage I don't really pay much attention to designers, but I have always admired the dreamy creations of Jason Wu.
Where are your favourite places to shop for new clothes clothes?
I usually go thrifting, but every once in a while I want something shiny and new. When I get that urge I go straight for Topshop and Urban Outfitters. My wallet always takes such a beating in those stores- especially when flatforms and hats are in stock.
Do you make or customise your outfits?
I usually hem all my vintage dresses. I like a longer length in general, but sometimes the dress silhouettes looks too dowdy if I don't snip it above the knee!
Do you have any great tips for mixing up and personalising an outfit?
LAYER! I layer all year long because it instantly makes an outfit more interesting. Put turtlenecks underneath dresses, put a strapless dress over a chambray shirt, slip on some colored socks with your tights, pair a crop top with a high waisted skirt. I think dressing up is meant to be creative, so poke a toe outside of your comfort zone!
