Summer Favorites Video, Part 1 – White dress + bold prints

After taking a 6 month hiatus from YouTube, I felt so encouraged by some of your messages that I decided to try again. My friend Jimmy generously opened up his bright space to me so that I can fit more than a head and chest into the frame. I felt a mile away from the camera and tried using a mic (gifted by my thoughtful little brother), so please bear with the severe volume swings. This was also my first time recording with friends present, thus was a nervous chatterbox. The multitude of challenges faced while filming a basic video make me really appreciate YouTubers like WendysLookbook who produce amazing ones, time and time again.

*Note: Change video to HD (4th button in from the bottom right) for the original quality*

Items shown (I will share more details about fit, quality, and alterations performed in future posts):

White Dress Outfits
– BR Factory white pencil dress (similar), $99 got on sale for $60 and altered at home
– H&M; blazer, Forever21 necklace & striped belt that came w/ shorts (this year’s version)
– Hermes belt, Aqua shrug, random double pearls ($12 option here), Chanel WOC, Spotted pumps c/o a+o

Printed Skirt Outfits
– Amazing world map skirt with detachable peplum custom made by the talented SewPetiteGal. She has limited material available for custom, made-to-measure orders.
– H&M; ivory shell, Hermes belt reversed
– H&M; basics burgundy tank, Christian Louboutin simple 85 pumps, H&M; clutch

Readers – What are your favorite summer pieces?

    I love the video! Some of my favorite summer pieces are silk dresses (I have so many, and they're good for both in an out of the office), white eyelet shorts, and sandals.

    I just watched the video. It was very clear and informative.
    I love how clean and crisp that white dress looks. & that world map skirt is so cool. I knew SewPetiteGal was talented, but I had no idea just how talented.

    Anyways, great job on the video! I enjoyed it a lot!
