Craziness is like heaven

H&M dress and jacket. Zara denim vest. Dolce Vita Phoenix sandals. Marc Jacobs sunglasses. Vintage scarf. Marc by Marc Jacobs bag

I’m such a hippy at heart.

I prefer bohemian over buttoned-up, rocker chic to preppy, scruff to clean shaven.  If I could wear headscarves and bandannas across my forehead on a daily basis and dance around to the soundtrack that is constantly on repeat in my head… and heart, I would.

Thanks so much for all the great feedback on Menday.  To learn what guys (with style and great taste) think about what we’re all drooling over is indeed enlightening.

Yet, it also brings up the point that while learning what the opposite sex thinks is fun, we all ultimately dress for ourselves.  Just do you.

xo, Becs

    this is interesting. this is kinda hippie, but the dress itself is actually pretty sexy. an interesting take on a little black dress perhaps? for the record, i feel like this blog has indoctrinated me on the intricacies of women’s fashion, especially by being on the menday style panel haha

    i am loving this look. seriously, you look incredible. every single piece is perfect… the colour/print of that head scarf, the denim vest, leather jacket, black dress and the sandals… seriously, so perfect. xx

    Hey Janice! Just kidding! Totally borrowing that dress! I love that you can pull off this layering look- not sure that I could, but somehow you manage to rock it and look way cute doing so!! xo, Mel

    such a cool outfit…and totally agree with you especially when it comes to choosing scruff over clean shaven!

  9. January 14, 2010 at 8:23 pm

    Oh I think Rachel Zoe would love this a hell of a lot more!

    This is truly your style Becs, you look comfortable, you glow, and just OWN the look.

    that dress is beyond amazing… i am in love x

  12. January 15, 2010 at 7:35 am

    Cute dress! I agree with your sentiment, although I will say that the preppy look can be combined with scruff fairly easy to achieve a casual cool style. Loved your post on Menday as well! Strangely I agree with most of them (I prefer real fur in winter when it’s cold!).

  13. January 15, 2010 at 8:50 am

    Wow, the lace cut-out is fantastic… you wear it effortlessly. And let’s face it, the whole bohemian rock chic combination is stellar!!!!!! xxx

  14. January 15, 2010 at 5:47 pm

    Love this combo and the expression about your personal style! that dress is sooo great!!! Looks so beautiful in CA…wish i was there! finally posted & linked u~ toodles hun!

    i actually saw that dress in H&M and i wondered how it could be worn, but it looks really nice on you 🙂

  16. January 15, 2010 at 9:53 pm

    That jacket vest combo is craze. It’s like the hippie girl that’s down with the bikers…great look. The headband is dopeshow too.

    The dress is so awesome! I love that it’s black, which makes it easy to wear, yet there’s that panel of lace that gives it intricacy. And headbands are so the way to my heart! Rock stars/neo-hippies have always been intriguing to me and I’ve always wanted to live through the ’60s.
    Hope you have a wonderful weekend!!

    Your hippie chic style is imppecable! Your hair has an awesome red tinge in these shots… did you colour it?

  24. January 17, 2010 at 5:55 am

    AND it would such a great Pleasure to go back to the “70’s” in your Utterly Radiant company Dear !!!! This silhouette sounds very “Boho BOMBnextDoor with a GLAM Rock-issime twist on her jacket”, so nonchalantly electrifying . . .
    ps: J’espère que tu vas Bien.
