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?

    Loved getting a peak into your life! You look great – the photos speak volumes of how your look has evolved. Did you get rid of your dreads? Also, are your fashions on loan or do you have to purchase everything? Thanks!

    @Azizmom My dreads are still under there; fingers crossed they don’t all snap off when I remove the braids! And I buy all my clothes. I should put a lot of stuff on Ebay; maybe that’ll be a New Years project! I like to hold onto stuff, and I do wear it more than once (the cape and shoes are repeats). I also have three younger sisters, so I give a lot of stuff to them.
    Thanks erebody, more to come, including (hopefully) a staff holiday shoot!

    If you don’t mind me asking, what size is the dress you wearing.
    Been looking at Clover Canyon dresses for a while but was wondering if they true to size.
    You look beautiful!
