the clash







coat  vintage
dress  vintage
belt  thrifted
bag  filson from j. crew
shoes  wasteland

I love a good clash of prints, and for some reason this particular vintage coat always inspires me to do a funny mix. You probably noticed the new Fancy Fine header up there... It was illustrated by the lovely Lucy Meyle who I've been a fan of for a while. I thought it was about time I enlisted someone with actual talent to add some prettiness to this blog (especially because my so-so graphic design skills weren't cutting it). What do you think about the new look?

I bloody love those shoes! Blue suede and a stacked heel? Awesome.

Grace said...

The first thing I noticed was the header actually, haha. I didn't see the photo of the two children and thought I was on the wrong page for a second there. It's different and cute! She did a great job!

It really does clash. But it's a good clash.

LOVE the new header, missy! As I do this darling outfit. I also adore a good clash, and often wonder if I look like I got dressed in the dark. And more importantly, if I'm ok with that (which I usually am). Anyways, I love all this prettiness!

Stefanie said...

The header is really great. And that dress is to die for, although the thing I envy most about this is that there seem to be cool enough temperatures there to wear a jacket - I am in the middle of a heatwave.

Caitie said...

Love the new header... though I loved the other too :)! I love when you do fun mixing of prints, you are so good at it! Those shoes are killer, too!

Shelly said...

Ashley,

Your new header is very... well... you! It's adorably vintage with a flare of granny chic (which I know you're in to) and a pop of cuteness! It encompasses Ashley!

Also: Your dress is seriously flattering and cute! How do you find such great pieces??
