Lookbook: Styled by Monochrome

10/20/2014

The hubs says this look is old school Hollywood meets church lady--but what does he know! I have a confession. I'm a bit hooked on quilted material. I recently realized that I have a pair of quilted pants, a quilted jacket, and I just added these quilted sneakers to the mix. Do you think I need an intervention? Me neither--these shoes are way too hot. And they made it really easy to gallivant around town snapping photos with my Nokia Lumia 635. 

As part of the #StyledByLumia challenge, I'm sharing what goes on during a photo shoot for an outfit post for the Muse. It's usually spending time trying to figure out where to take pictures, and then finding a fun place to eat instead. This time around it was a shaved ice place in Japantown (cherry/lime with condensed milk filling). Per usual, in between photos for the blog, I take photos for Instagram, so the Nokia Lumia came in quite handy for a quick shot of my sweet treat. And afterward I can store the images in Lumia Storyteller and put together something like a mobile scrapbook. Keep up with me and my Lumia challenge by following me on social!

By the way, how cute is the cross collar on this shirt? I wanted to title this post Masterchef because of it, but then I thought the shirt seemed more like a painter's smock--but then that seemed wrong too. What the hell does this cross collar remind me of? Thoughts? Your help would be greatly appreciated.

On the Muse: | H&M skinny low jeans | Cross-over collar blouse c/o 6KS (sold out) | Nasty Gal Steve Madden quilted sneakers | H&M oversize floppy hat (in blue) | Essie wicked nail polish | Lumia 635 c/o Nokia |
