{STYLE} Jeweled

Perhaps it's the changing weather, or the bodily confusion of bouncing from climate to climate and timezone to timezone, or maybe it's the feeling of being inundated with constantly evolving "must have" trends, but I've been increasingly out of the loop when it comes to the art of dressing. My M.O. lately has been to execute a single look that I love - that feels comfortable, that makes me happy, and that makes some kind of statement - and wearing it to death. It didn't hurt to do a serious purge of my wardrobe a couple weeks ago that culminated in loads of donations and a closet sale to benefit the LA LGBT Center to force me to reassess every item taking up space in my wardrobe. Maybe the Kondo method did get to me (finally?), but each item I pulled out, I was asking myself a series of questions, but the most important, by far, was, "does it make me happy?"

This dress, which I bought as soon as it became available after pining for it since the Kate Spade FW15 show, has been in constant rotation for me -- and there's a good chance you've seen it already if you're following me on Instagram or snapchat. I think it's one of the most "me" pieces of clothing I've come across in a long time, and whether I'm wearing it with sneakers for a casual day look, or a sleek pair of pumps as I did for a series of business meetings a few weeks ago - it's something I feel exceptionally good wearing. It's definitely climbed up the ranks and earned a permanent position as one of my favorite pieces in my closet - sitting pretty next to my pink cocoon coat, my tumbled motorcycle jacket, and my kitty-printed shoes.
