Outfit Deets:  Zara Crop Top / Zara Slip Dress (similar here) / Gap Jean Jacket / Zara Mary Janes

A few weeks ago, I channeled my inner Carrie Bradshaw and went to an art opening in the Meatpacking District. I'm no art expert, but I thoroughly enjoyed the Thrush Holmes exhibit. The colors and techniques were so fresh and unique, and I happened to slightly match the paintings to boot!

While my pieces here are not "truly vintage", this outfit was inspired by the 90s trend that was seen all over the runways for spring. Slip dresses and mary janes are where it was at.  I added a striped crop top, tied a jean jacket around my waist, and boom I'm feeling like I'm in Saved By The Bell.

Slip dresses can be tricky for certain body types, but you can make it work through how you style it. By breaking up the proportions with various layers and cinching at the waist, you are able to create different shapes and keep the outfit exciting.  I am also overly obsessed with these pink mary janes (tapping into that pastel trend I discussed last post), and they add some good elevation to the outfit. If you've been following me on Instagram, you might've noticed I have been on a shoe attack :) Just something to look forward to in future posts!
