What I Wore: Put a Bird on It

Outfit Posts Summer

There's just something about a wrap dress. For many, it does wonders for the figure. It creates an hourglass shape, flatters the bust, and makes the most of curves.

I'll be drawn to a bright fire engine red or a cherry but hardly ever wear it. But when the red has some warmth I find myself wearing it more often, and liking better how it pairs with neutrals and denim. So…

What I Wore: Universal Standard x J. Crew Dress

The very day that the Universal Standard x J. Crew collaboration launched, I placed an order. No stranger to Wardrobe Oxygen will know that I've become quite a Universal Standard fangirl. As for J. Crew, it has been one of my besties since college. A perusal of my archives will see some of my very first outfit posts in J. Crew, and 13 years later there are still several J.…

A lot of pieces you've seen before, some remixed in different ways, some pieces have yet to make it to the blog but are IRL favorites.
