Feminine and Funk

I decided to dress up as Kelly one year for Halloween and chose head-to-toe lace and ruffles in all creams, whites and pale pinks. Kelly is a romantic at heart and it overflows into her fashion, her home decor and her incredibly fabulous tea-party-throwing skills. I’m talking serious skills – the kind that take your breath away when you walk into the celebration. As if the food, the place settings, the handmade ruffled paper poufs and party favors have all been celebrating for hours, and you just get to join in on their fun. For Kelly, the party is planning the party…and it shows.

I tease her about her lace and ruffles, but the the truth is Kelly is equal parts romantic and spunk, feminine and funky. She balances whimsy with daring – a beautiful blend of pretty poetry with poignant prose. She doesn’t try to project a style, it’s just who she is and it overflows to both fete and fashion.


Here Kelly is wearing the “Spirit’s fruit” necklace – a whimsical blend of bright vintage fruit baubles with gold leaves on mid-century gold link chain. She pairs it with a pastel fringed sequined mini, a soft grey t-shirt…and for a splash of spunk, pointed poppy pumps.

Topped off with that hair…that HAIR…and that smile – perfection!
