Dorothy Day

I cannot resist hair named after a real life hero – and most particularly I cannot resist hair named after a real life hero that is as gorgeous as this. I put it together with a practical outfit that the real Dorothy Day would have felt comfortable wearing.  She may have been a reformer, an activist, a world-changer, but she also was a beautiful woman. The foundation for this look is the perfectly lovely and stunningly executed Anoorea skirt from MichaMi.  I dithered over what jacket to wear, and chose the one from TOSL for it’s chunky, handknit homemade look.  That had me looking for a lilac shirt and this one from Zaara was made to order.

You can see that as much attention is lavished on the back of hte skirt as on the front. The shoes are Belles from Shiny Things. These are perfectly delightful shoes that suit so many looks as they have a casual rounded shape. The heel height makes them dressy, the heel width gives them casual ease. If you have to pick and choose carefully which shoes to invest in, these will give you maximum flexibility.

What sells this outfit for me, though, is the magnificent hair/hat combo from fashionably dead.  Combine it with the fresh and luscious blowpop Elizabeth skin and the combination is irresistible
