Often times when I am looking for inspiration for a new post, I look through old photos on my blog. It is crazy to think I started it only 5 years ago. My style has changed so much over the years. For example, I used to gravitate towards bright, sometimes neon, colors and big statement jewelry. Now my style is much more refined. I like more elegant jewelry, neutral colors, and form-fitting styles. It’s been an interesting process as I clean out my closet. (Pssstt, I’m selling items on Poshmark. My username is @LauraLily.
The outfit I am wearing in the photo above is one of my absolute favorite outfits of all time. From the way the different textures come together to everything being a shade of my favorite color, purple. Had I gone to Fashion Week that year this look definitely would have come with me. You can see more photos of this look here.
This dress, although simple, made for the most magnificent black and white photos. I shot this with Tony in Downtown Los Angeles. I explained to him how I wanted to bring this dress to life in a black and white photoshoot, it was as if he had read my mind. He so eloquently captured what I was trying to portray. An elegant black dress that withstands the tests of time. Full outfit post here.
This is me being sexy before I even knew what it meant to be sexy. I still have this dress and love it just as much as the day I bought it. I miss my hair being this long. Obviously, it had a mind of its own that day. Full outfit post here.
I volunteered at a charity auction and they let me choose one item from the racks. It was love at first sight for this Love and Lemons sheer dress. Such a sexy, yet elegant, number. Full post here.
Another example of a look that presents me today. Sexy, classic, sophisticated. I love this outfit and all it’s coordinating pieces together. I wore it to a wedding and felt like the most beautiful woman in the room. This bell sleeve coat is my most worn (also worn here.) What can I say, I love bell sleeves, lace and Rockstud pumps! Full post here.
I didn’t have any favorite outfits that involve a dress so I figured I would share one that includes some pants. Flare jeans to be exact, because I love the way the accentuate curves. This look also brought together a lot of beautiful fall colors: navy, olive green, and burnt orange. Definitely, a style I can wear over and over again. More photos on this look here.
You are always welcome to look through old blog posts to see older favorite outfits. In fact, I encourage it. That way you can see how far I’ve progressed in terms of dressing myself. There is an archives tab on the right sidebar. It will prove to you that no one is born with great style. It takes practice and seeing what works well on your body. So tell me, which of these favorite outfits, or any outfit on my blog, is your favorite?
