On me: Dolce Vita dress borrowed from Lilliana (taken in & hemmed), bulky old BR bag to schlep DSLR
On her: Maje cape blouse (from Europe), $20 jeans from Philly store on Chestnut St, L.A.M.B. sandals
We are the same size exactly (imagine my giddy raiding of her suitcase), yet Lilliana's extensive wardrobe consists of almost no "typical petite faves" Ann Taylor, LOFT, H&M. This was so refreshing to me, and proves that size should not be a reason to conform and buy the same wardrobe. Although she gets many items altered like myself, she sees potential in various regular-sized items that I would never even consider.
Knit maxi: TJ Maxx, Leather jacket: Madewell (sleeves shortened), Bag: Balenciaga
Lilliana describes her style as feminine, chic yet classic, and aspirational. She loves mixing bargain finds with investment pieces, and pays a lot of attention to silhouettes and fabric drape. See her reel for more outfit snippets featuring clothes that have never even been on my petite-friendly radar.
Can't wait to share my Spain photos on here. Stay tuned, and I hope you're all having a wonderful weekend.
