Maximizing the minimal

Less is more, so we're told. I was having this discussion with some girlfriends recently.  We were all noticing how lately, we've all veered towards uncluttered silhouettes, low key delicate jewellery and simpler color palettes.


I've been aware of my own shifting preferences towards a simpler look, too. I wrote about my love of oversized things of late.


Neutral colors (even though I'm a lots of color kind of girl) and simple prints (though I love a wild print). What's happening to me?


This minimalist vintage dress from a new favorite Etsy shop called Retro Rhapsody had me from the moment I saw it.  It had all the characteristics of my latest sartorial cravings: loose fit, simple print, neutral color.

Louella Odie Skyline bag, Ona Chan Square Cocktail Ring, Cornelia Webb 'hand-let' from Square Street and vintage.

Still, when it came down to styling it, I decided to do it up. Vintage jewellery, a scarf, my Louella Odie bag.  Me to a tee.


Oh, and the booties. I'm loving that it's cool enough for booties because they're practically my favorite thing to wear with a dress.

This is a great look on you and I too love booties with a dress. I'm not sure I'm shifting to neutral colours the older I get. If anything, I think the reverse is happening! LOL! If I do shift, best to take my temperature! I'm probably off colour - pardon the pun!

Super cute Norbyah! This was fun to take pictures for. I especially love how tight and sleek this headscarf is. It's like a continuation of your pretty black hair. And you can never go wrong with Louella Odié either!

Here's to more sartorial shenanigans!
