Circus Urchin

I’m really inspired by the bold colors of this girl’s dress, and I love the simplicity of the wrapped style offset by ruffled sleeves. She looks like a pretty little circus clown with her hat and bright red corsage. Her simple black accessories work perfectly with her vibrant dress. To add a splash of color to your wardrobe, try the Orangerie Dress in Crystal Palace and pair it with The Cover Girl’s Derby, The Fabulous Purse, Black Mamba Flats and the Flower Box Pin.


About Turi

When Turi isn’t blogging, you can find her nose behind a book. But reading isn’t her only pastime. She loves running (cue jogging stroller), taste-testing pizza and burgers, and working on the next great American novel. Her latest homage to all things literary? Her son is named after writer Dashiell Hammett. How apropos.

    This is perfectly whimsical, almost like a costume– but not in a ridiculous way. I always say, better to be over the top than underwhelming. 🙂
