Verti(cal)go

I bought these pants at a thrift store in Provincetown last year and they got lost in the back of my closet before I ever wore them. I pulled them out a few weeks ago and have been reaping the benefits ever since. Paired with a low heel and a black turtleneck, these culottes become a chic office statement. With a fringey crop top they could easily transition to nightwear.

Casual Corner

You can always tell when I haven’t planned my outfit in advance, or if I’ve been out late the night before. I have a tried-and-true system for comfortable outfits that are still functional and work appropriate. I pair leggings, oftentimes a thicker, trouser-inspired legging, with a long blouse and add my tied-up flats or some heeled booties. The result is put-together enough for the office, but easy enough to throw on with no thought when I roll out of bed.

In the summer delicate details like the simple rings and necklace make it seem planned. casualcorner3View More: http://stephanieritaphoto.pass.us/celina-juneCheck out this post for the story behind my “Solo Goya” ring, which I made at the Stonybrook Fine Arts studio in JP. casualcorner5

Online Shopping with Zaful

Recently I’ve had the privilege to try out some of the clothes from Zaful, an online retailer that provides unique clothing at an affordable price. With many sites like this, the descriptions are misleading, the shipping time is long, and the sizing is unusual. Zaful had none of these flaws. I received my package in less than a week and everything was as described online. They also carry a range of sizes as opposed to the typical “one size fits all” of discount retailers.

This dress came in at only $10 and is extremely versatile. I wore it with this necklace to the office but a leather jacket and a pair of booties can easily take it out after work. The material is thin so I recommend wearing with a slip to avoid panty lines.

IMG_8958One of my favorite pieces of the parcel Zaful sent me was this Renaissance-painting style skirt. As an art reporter, I love when I can express my passions sartorially. This piece was very sturdy, and surprisingly well made for the price. The pattern is on both the front and back.

IMG_8960 (1)Chiffon shirts are one of my lazy-day go tos. If I’m running errands or hanging around my apartment, I’ll throw on leggings and a tie-neck top. That way I’m comfortable but can still go out at a moment’s notice knowing that I look cute. This pajama-style shirt is immaculately constructed. I like mine a little oversized so I went with the medium, which fits perfectly.

IMG_8963I’m all about dainty jewelry right now, so this marble-and-black bracelet was a must. It’s a little big for tiny wrists but looks extremely sophisticated for the $1 price tag. As costume jewelry goes, I’m impressed with Zaful’s quality.

Please note: I was gifted clothing and accessories by Zaful, however, all opinions are my own.

Perfect Pair

I found this set at the SoWa Vintage Market (at the One Man’s Trash booth) in the South End and fell in love with it immediately. I call this look Barbara Bush meets 50 Shades of Grey. To bring the set into the modern age I shortened the hem on the skirt and paired it with a leather crop top. Now it’s a retro-meets-contemporary outfit that can go from the office to date night in one sweep.
