I was working on this post at about midnight last night and fell asleep with my laptop in bed before I even wrote an entry to go along with the photos! It’s been a challenge these days to get organized and not do things at the last minute. Anyone feeling that way?
Today’s model is a newbie. Meet my new friend Robin, a D.C. transplant living in LA who saved my mom’s antique rug. It’s a long story that involves a glass of red wine, a panic attack, 20 t-shirts and seltzer water.
I struggled with the name of this outfit. I started with “it girl chic, then changed to fashion blogger chic, but ultimately felt it was too conservative. There is an element of work attire in this ourfit (tailored jacket, watch, and loafers) but definitely not something you would wear to a conventional job with the short romper. Who wears rompers? Well, hipsters do. Hence the name: Hipster Business Woman Chic. What do you think, should I change it?
Anyway, I LOVE this outfit. The patent leather loafers are $2.50. Yes you heard me right. $2.50. But I have to say, my favorite part of the outfit is the romper with the blazer. Not something you would expect, but it looks really put together.
