inspiration: classic contrast

inspiration: classic contrast












Ever since my last DIY, I've had contrasting details on the brain: collars, plackets, pockets, cuffs.  I love that details like these, in a neutral palette, provide built-in interest (essential for me, the laziest dresser), without overly limiting the pairing possibilities within one's wardrobe.

I'm on a laid-back vacay in the Bay Area this week, and I'm heading out to SF to scour and ravage its thrift shops.  Hopefully, I'll be back with a truckload of raw materials, including some to patch together some tops/dresses inspired by the above.

Hope your week is off to a great start!
