Style Diary: Baroque and Velvet Accents
By Claire

Hey Y’all!
So most of my days go like this: blog like a bum from 8 am til 3ish, gym it up, then hit the town for press events. Yesterday I had a lot on my plate, including a Spring 2013 Press Preview for Mango, an H&M x Margiela pre-shopping event (I didn’t get anything), and a fundraising meeting for my alma mater, so I opted for comfort in an on trend Baroque Rose Print Scarf Neoprene Dress by Clover Canyon:

It may look familiar, as I included it in our Style Inspiration titled Baroque Flair and Ornate Embellishments. Yes, I’m frequently ‘inspired’ by most things I blog about! Though I paired the dress with Nicholas Kirkwood Metallic floral-embroidered mesh sandals in the Style Inspiration, I decided to let the dress play centerstage for my day on the town, so only wore a Via Spiga cape for warmth (last seen here) and House of Harlow velvet gold button platform booties (last seen here):

I hope you enjoyed my time with the braids. They’re coming out immediately (it’s a pain to work out with them, they’re heavy, etc.)! For one of my last forays, I opted for a braid bun, and accessorized with gold hoops and spiked bracelets from Urban Outfitters:

Then it was off to a Mango Press Preview at Factory PR:

I saw what was on tap for Spring for the brand, took some pix for Instagram, and tried out a few of their delectable accessories.

I want those mirrored sunglasses!
At any rate, there’s a quick peek into a typical day in my life:

Back to hiding behind my computer…

What do you think?

    Claire, you look fantastic as usual; the dress is gorge, it fits your body well… and love the bun.

    FYI – You actually inspired me to get my hair braided, something I hadn’t done in a long time, because I so admired yours.

    You look great Claire! I enjoyed this feature, as well. It’s always interesting to hear more about your comings and goings. Your success is definitely inspiring for me personally, and most likely for anyone trying to build their own career, rather than let an industry shape it for you.

  15. Nicki says:
