Cream Lace + Ruffles

Every now and then you have to get showered, dressed, and out the door in thirty minutes… today was that day. I have a full weekend ahead of me with wedding planning and organizing new music for my church choir. As a result the entire weekend’s outfits are planned and pressed and today’s look was a great way to start my Friday.

I found this beautiful dress in Marshall’s a year ago and can you beleive it was only $20 ?! I promise you guys I do not spend a lot of money on my clothes, namely because bills –  but seriously lol.

The cream lace has a nice texture and the larger design looks amazing against the ivory lining. The cap sleeves and tiered ruffles add a playful touch. I can totally carry the dress from day to night by wearing flats to work (which I always do) and adding my strappy sandals for a night out in Old City.

Since it is Friday and I’m a working girl, my trusty cream Dooney & Bourke bowler bag and cat eye frames are all I need to complete my ensemble. Summer weather means I live in dresses and with the last lingering balmy temperatures soon to go, I’ll wear one any chance I get.

Here’s to a good weekend loves, stay safe! XO – Kira

Lavender Mini


While watching the classic Sidney Portier film To Sir With Love last week I was reminded of how much I loved the Mod dresses of the 1960’s. This popular London trend swept America by storm during the decade and models like Twiggy helped increase it’s popularity. Today I’ve decided to take this classic trend and make it my own.


A few years ago I stumbled upon today’s dress in one of my favorite stores, Buffalo Exchange. The beaded peter pan collar and lace detail caught my eye immediately. Mod dresses tend to have very short hemlines, so I absolutely love that this mini is balanced with long sleeves. It stays true to the trend while still looking demure.

By adding a pair of chic low heels and a vintage purse, my retro look is complete. My entire outfit, accessories included,  cost about $90 ( with my heels being $50 alone ). Whenever I see baby boomer fashion trends reemerge, I take a trip to the thrift store instead of buying off the rack. You’ll stand out without breaking the bank to do so. Cheers to baing a bargain beauty!
