After graduating, I worked as a paralegal. Without noticing, I had suddenly acquired a closet full of black and white clothing. I had a “uniform.” I always wore a black skirt with a combination of shirts and sweaters. I wasn’t frumpy by any means, I was well dressed but terribly boring. So I decided to change it up a bit.
I still needed to appear professional at work so I took myself shopping. After chewing my nails for a bit, I bought myself my favorite (and still favorite) luxe Francesco Biasa bag. With this bag slung over my left arm, I felt stylish but still professional. So I went on to collecting clothing that was fun and professional. I sighed in the windows of Elie Tahari and his printed dress and sharply tailored suits. I breathed little bubbles of contentment at the pretty things in BCBGMaxazria. And I inhaled anything Theory. I’d pat my hands over the Marc Jacob’s shoes and gorgeous skirts. I had a little affair with Charles David and a butter colored bag that I still pat affectionately whenever I sling it over my shoulder.
And most recently, since I can dress a little less sharply at school, I have been breathing in anything Leifsdottir. I love the fabric, the vibrant colors, the cut and the concept. I love the smart lace jackets, the sweet as candy dresses and the ruffled hems. Their website is beautiful and I frequently purchase a little guilty pleasure when I need a boost in the library. So, I’m sharing with you the bright spot in the library: these sweet little dresses and jackets I’ve been savoring while studying.
