Style Diary: Baroque and Velvet Accents

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?
