Lovely Lavender

Tuesday, July 16, 2013


Rosy Ruby dress, [old] Floral platforms, Grafea leather backpack, [old] Aldo necklace [similar], Koko&Beau via Rachel @ kokoluxe.com bracelets, Chameli druzy bracelet, Victoria's Secret bralette

First I just want to say thank you all for the birthday wishes. The response on my last post was incredible and I am so happy!!!! My birthday day was really wonderful, low key and fun. I'm doing a little further celebrating later this month too :) As for this look, we shot this in Santa Cruz (again haha) and it was awkward because so many people were passing by. (Yeah actually we were on a sidewalk and kind of in their way.)

Anyways this dress is in lavender, and I seriously love any shade of purple. The cut is flowy, feminine and playful. It is slightly sheer so I did need a slip. I also wore a Victoria's Secret bralette under because the top is cut so low, but it works great as a bikini cover up too! 

[I should add that the key to making sure a drop waist dress like this looks good on you is that it shows a good amount of leg! And if you are less than 5'4" you should aim for a drop waist dress of less than 32".]

  21. Hi Jessica,

    First off I'd like to say I admire your fashion style a lot and you're something of a fashion inspiration for me :D

    Looking through your lookbook I notice you have many different styles of dress, from punky to casual to feminine... and you rock them all really really well! Does this variety of looks portray your fashion style in real life as well or do you mainly stick to one style? Lately I've been having troubles with what is apparently called "Multiple Fashion Personas"... I like so many different styles but I feel like I'm not cohesive enough and that I should pick one style and stick to it. Being a high schooler it's been a little troubling for me...

    What are your thoughts and/or advice on this? You seem to be doing fine with multiple fashion styles, so I'm wondering if I should stick with my ambiguity or stick with one unfaltering style?

    Thank you so much!

    A fellow hapa...
