I wore this to a preview event of the new Lily + Violet boutique in the Linden Hills neighborhood of Minneapolis, which I attended with the lovely Sarah Von. I’ve felt pretty schlubby at the past few events I’ve attended, so I wanted a more polished look for this one. I seldom tuck shirts into my pants and haven’t hauled out my brooches in ages, so it felt fun to dress up as someone who looked a lot like me, but with a few newish twists.
Have you been pushing your sartorial boundaries lately? Ever dress up as someone who looks almost like you for a night out or event?
