Ok, so my pick today owns the worlds most amazing collection of designer separates, but browsing her photostream full of mixed up proportions and bold accessories will make you want to go crazy at your nearest thrift store for things like a pair of baggy shorts and a necklace the size of your sternum.
By the way, the “belt” in this photo is apparently just a piece of fabric pinned to her dress. Brilliant!

I’m in New Orleans en ce moment and having an AMAZING time. Right now I’m in this gorgeous hotel in the French Quarter decorated with antiques with the most beautiful courtyard which I scored off for only $59 per night!! Can anyone suggest a non-douchey (aka no blacklights, flaming fountains, violently-named cocktails or light beer) bar with live jazz nearby? Thanks!
