Bowing to Lagerfeld

I am so close to being all caught up on my photos…I swear I will not let myself fall behind again. Okay, I probably will. But I will feel really badly about it. This is from about four days before I chopped off my hair. The humidity was really starting to get to me.





bow top: I think it was Next in London but it may have been Dorothy Perkins and I am too lazy to check the label / jeans: thrifted, Charlotte Russe / shoes: Gap / purse: H&M / cuff: had it since high school and really can’t remember

Has anyone else checked out Karl Lagerfeld’s capsule collection for Macy’s? I love the highly structural nature of some of the pieces – not to mention the rough around the edges, punk element juxtaposed with some of the romantically inspired pieces.



















And, for anyone interested in a getting a bit of a jump of fall shopping, Eshakti is offering readers of Sartorial Sidelines $20 on their awesome selection of clothes. Just enter the code SARTORIAL0811 at checkout! The offer is good until September 15…happy shopping.

I love Eshakti, I've never actually had the money to buy anything from there, but I browse endlessly.

Hmm I like these, I especially like outfit one and the cutesy dress in pink and black (5 and 6).

This humidity has been a total pain, I've had enough of this Summer. I'm looking forward to Autumn. You look pretty btw.

Not a huge fan of Lagerfeld, but some of these dresses are quite pretty, especially the beige/nude one, simple, and probably done a 1000 times, but it's still cute.
Dying to see more pictures with your new hair, we only got a sneak peek! :P xxxx

The bow top your wearing is very nice! I love bows.
As for Lagerfeld's collection at Macy's, I like the wool shorts. I'm not a big fan of Lagerfeld himself, but he is a great designer. I think it's interesting he's gone down the masstige route.

You are so pretty. I love how you look extremely elegant when you're wearing jeans. That is a gift, not a talent. ;)

I cannot wait to see the collection! I am obsessed with all the high collars, and I'm really happy Karl stayed true to his favorite color scheme - black and white!

I love that bow top!

Love the bow top on you. The Lagerfeld pics make me want a pair of leather trousers. That can't be a good thing x

Okay I am officially more in love with your new haircut than i was before. That sounds relatively bizarre, but is totally true and I'm okay with it.

I like the bow top. We've finally gotten some milder weather in my area, and it is nice to have a break from the heat and humidity.
