From Karen Seifert
Black is my favorite color and I’m so glad Richmond agrees with me.  Look how un-drab it is with a bright hat and a bright scarf!

From Dirty Richmond
The downtown look: business-appropriate, yet feminine.  Hoping to see more from downtown in the coming months…

From Dirty Richmond
See, hats can look good on long-haired girls.  Especially with black tights and a miniskirt.

From Dirty Richmond
A furry hat means plenty of warmth without resorting to the same. old. beanie.

From Rumors
A damask print skirt is soft but bold, and a little red flower in the hair adds just the right pop of color.

From Dirty Richmond
Is that a little cameo on her beret?  I’ll say no more.

From Rumors
Dreary weather is no match for color of this caliber.

From Rumors
Even plaid looks put-together when paired with fitted pants and a belt.

From Rumors
Furs: appropriate for the frozen Russian tundra, and also Richmond.

From Dirty Richmond
It’s in the details: the floral scarf, the princess sleeves, the bow-fronted coat, and the Mary Poppins-inspired carpet bag, toughened up properly with leather boots.

From Dirty Richmond
So cute in an “it’s the 80s and I’m on my way to aerobics class” kind of a way.

From Dirty Richmond
Shorts and tights have been a definite snowy trend in Richmond lately.

From Dirty Richmond
It seems we always return to library chic.  And we LOVE IT.
