To stash away for those summer days

Saturday night I rummaged through the top shelf of my closet to dig out some summer clothes that I hadn't seen in a while. I was quite excited to see that the weather was warming up, and that we had a few really beautiful sunny days. Then, of course, on Sunday and Monday the sky decided to dump half a foot of snow again. I cursed the snow with chattering teeth on my way to school this afternoon.

Oh well, I guess the pictures below will just have to be filed away for better days ahead. Just thought I'd share, since my recent outfit posts haven't been so interesting.



Once again I'm turning scarves into dresses. Both scarves in this post were purchased second hand, and are paired with a thrifted skirt (currently still being hemmed, you can see the dark stitches oops!) and Aldo shoes. The first one reminds me a tiny bit of those flame prints at Jeremy Laing this season. This is probably the first time I've ever paired black with orange in an outfit. Somehow it bypassed the Halloween look...



Once again, please ignore the strange details on the skirt. I haven't decided whether I want to iron it and keep the pleats, or take them out completely, or just sew them in so the skirt is tighter.

This is what I wore Friday to school (but with black socks, which I didn't have on hand for photos...)

Ugh. The weather needs to stop PMSing and bring on the summer, already.

Wooooow I am truly mesmerized by your sculptural presence (classy "à fleur de peau") AND your equisite handmade back cleavage, just like a subtle "bodily unveiling" . . .

à Bientôt, Antoine

You are so totally amazing. I love how you just come up with these great ideas and put together outfits for next to nothing in terms of cost! =) And you've got the perfect figure for modelling haha.

I haven't been to your blog before or I definitely would have asked this sooner. Where is your bed frame from? I love the black/white floral motif on it!

Might have to steal this idea for when summer comes around on the east coast (if ever), my issue dressing with scarves if that they still look like scarves... but you make hem look like dresses for real!

Raez said...

AH! I'm so jealous of your scarf weilding skills! that second outfit is really killer, love that red colour on you:)

Cruz said...

That first look is my favorite, very chic!

-h said...

ive taken to wearing my scarves like this too. i really really LOVE yours. they are absolutely perfect. i cant tell if like the red or the orange one better.
also i like the casual chic of your school outfit.

elyse said...

This is great. I need to find some huge vintage scarves to try this with! What do you wear underneath? I love the yellow one you have.

Your school outfit is super cute, too. I love the slouchy blue sweater!

Sabrina said...

Elyse: Thanks! Underneath these two particular scarves I'm just wearing a skirt, but I'd probably wear a bandeau top out in public.

Le Fashion said...

your body is fabulous + so are your creations! they fit your body so well!

Kera said...

How large are the scarves you use for the dresses? I saw your blog on Refinery and the scarf dress drew me in! LOVE IT!!!

Sabrina said...

Kera: I'm not sure of the exact measurements, but the ones I used here reach from chin to knee and wrap around me twice.

They'd have to be pretty large.

Hope that helps!
