darker days.






H&M divided black maxi dress and faux leather jacket; fashionology.nl bird skull necklace (gifted), hammered knuckle ring, claw ring, and cross ring (gifted); the extras chain buckle bracelet; forever 21 watch, lowluv x erin wasson bone bracelet (gifted); asos ankle boot.

reverting back to black...it happens to me quite often.
i first saw this dress on columbine's blog a while back when she visited the H&M showroom, and after waiting patiently for about a month, i picked it up when it finally came out two weeks ago. it looks just like the t by alexander wang maxi, except it was, um, only $12.95. it's also quite sheer, so i'm wearing leggings underneath. but it has a breast pocket. and i love pockets.
i wore it on my day off, as it's not practical to trip over your dress when you work on your feet, running around on a sales floor all day.

(iPhone pic from the day they arrived at my doorstep)

speaking of work, i'm glad i've added this pair of (nearly) flat boots to the collection of shoes i wear on the job, as my frye 8R's have taken quite a beating. i wish they came in black too.
and a lighter brown.

your faith has got to be greater than your fear.








H&M army jacket; H&M divided black nude tee (underneath bodysuit) and high-waist skinny pants; forever 21 lace bodysuit and watch; fashionology.nl bird skull necklace, hammered knuckle ring, cross ring, and claw ring; chrishabana triple spike necklace; the extras buckle chain bracelet; marc by marc jacobs pyramid stud bracelet; lowluv x erin wasson bone bracelet courtesy of tobi.com; topshop addison suede wedge boot.

outfit posts have been few and far between thanks to my photographer/boyfriend working 50-60 hour weeks. today i sucked it up and took these pictures myself. they're less than desired (a little blurry), but hey, here's my new favorite pair of shoes! my first order off topshop.com was a success.
review of the addison boot: very comfortable, excellent quality, and runs true to size (i'm an 8; i went up to an 8.5 so i could wear socks with them).

also received my lowluv x erin wasson jewelry from tobi.com in record time (i'm talking like two days) - thanks again guys! i'm wearing the bone bracelet above; unfortunately the ring i got was too big, so i sent it back for a smaller size.
be sure you check out tobi for everything from alexander wang to free people and cheap monday, and of course their amazing selection of wasson's new jewelry collection.

coachella ella ella.










(source - elle, refinery29, cobrasnake, cobrasnake, tfs, tfs, cobrasnake, cobrasnake, elle, hanneli, cobrasnake, cobrasnake)

no i didn't go, and while i'm a rock girl through and through (this rock festival back in 2006 was by far the best one i've ever been to), i can appreciate all types of music, and i do love bands like muse, mgmt and phoenix, so i'd love to attend coachella one day.
for now though, i'll just enjoy the fashion.

notables: lace, cutoffs, ankle boots, parkas, stripes, crochet, see-through, midriffs, metallics, lingerie as outerwear, brown accessories; kate bosworth for best dressed (pic 5/6); model/blogger hanneli (pic 10); and girl in last picture wearing what could be described as the perfect summer outfit.

bling bling.

forever 21 turquoise stone ring, H&M mens skull ring, forever 21 double finger cross ring, kohls winged ring, H&M black stone ring, fashionology.nl hammered knuckle ring, fashionology.nl cross ring, fashionology.nl claw ring. plate from a craft store.

here are my favorite rings you see adorning my fingers quite often (those you haven't seen are new or just need resized before i can wear them, like the skull ring). if i had a cool decorative hand or jewelry tree, i'd photograph my necklaces and bracelets too.
working on acquiring one or both of those.

if you couldn't tell from the past fifty or so outfit posts, i love jewelry that is rock n roll, nature-inspired, and a little gothic, all at the same time.
erin wasson's latest jewelry collection for low luv fits my requirements perfectly, and i'm so excited that these two pretties above, the bone stacker bangle bracelet and the pyramid knuckle ring, are on their way to me now, courtesy of tobi.com (thank you tobi!).
believe me, i'll be showing them off when i receive them.


oh, and check out my interview with michael from the style professor; it's one of my favorite interviews i've ever done.

the softer side.





free people oversize button down shirt; H&M garden collection bow belt shorts; H&M lace bra and black stone ring; forever 21 socks, chain bracelet, and watch; chrishabana triple spike necklace; marc by marc jacobs pyramid stud bracelet; fashionology.nl hammered knuckle ring, claw ring, and cross ring; zara bag; nine west sandals (very old).

indiana is heating up fast - thursday it got up to 84°F, woah (and i layed out, can't you tell?). it's like we have decided to skip spring in favor of summer. and truthfully, i kind of dread dressing for spring and summer. i'm more of a layers/jeans/dark colors/boots kinda girl; i always get stuck trying to figure out what to wear on hot, humid days, and then normally go for a shirt-and-shorts combination.
but there are so many new ways to update my summer silhouette, ways that still match my personal style (like these spring trends). now i'm feeling a lot less dreadful, and a little more excited.

this is what i like to call the softer side of caylee, hehe. barely any black!
it's all about having fun with fashion, yet staying true to yourself.
