Summer Dresses & Finds

While I know many of us have gone through a shopping frenzy that last week with the Nordstrom Anniversary (Access to the general public begins Friday July 21st, and the NSale is over Sunday August 6th) sale, I purchased a Caslon blazer and Lush blouse because tried and true classics are always a steal. But then I went on a bender of sorts at SheIn.  I haven't shopped there in here so long and with an upcoming beach weekend looming I wanted some cute, fun items that wouldn't break the bank.   SheIn Summer Finds by victoriamason featuring a drawstring waist dress Striped Curved Hem Tshirt Dress/Green Puff Sleeve Split Chiffon Blouse/Square Neck Drawstring Waist Dress With Fringe/Blackish Green Mock Neck Sleeveless T-shirt Dress/Gingham Open Shoulder Frill Trim … [Read more...]

Gingham and Mint

It is like the word that must not be spoken.  The 'R' word.  It started back in April and has not let up since making wearing anything in gingham and mint feel like a joke. This spring would feel like a bust here in the DMV if it were not for a few bright, warm days when I can break out some of the seasons fresh colors and trends. When the sun came out for one day last week all I could think of was breaking out my retired aqua Coach tote bag and these three things. D'orsay flats, a gingham button down and mint denim. The peeped out for a few moments that day and warmed this up just a bit. No Hunter rain boots today!
