(get ready for a long post)

Hilary Sherman, Graphic Designer of TOMS, is my beautiful aunt. At a young age, she was the one who truly exposed me to the fashion world. Without this, I'm not sure that I would have such a love for it now. I've decided to start to "covet" the people who inspire me on a day to day basis. So here is the first person. I dressed, styled, and photographed Hilary and we both had a blast in the process. Here are some outfits that exactly represent Hilary's vintage-chic personality. 

Outfit no.1

A slightly oversized duo of a beautifully bedazzled super vintage blouse and creamy silk  Generra shorts. I added my clear Zara clutch and her Toms glasses for an update, plus her amazing Kathryn Amberleigh bootie-heels. 

Outfit no. 2

I dressed her in an Audrey Hepburn-esque ensemble for this outfit. Her vintage Lanvin gown looks adorable on her. I added my J.Crew pearls and her YSL stilettos. I attempted a braid up-do. I know I won't be a hairstylist when I grow up. 

Outfit no. 3

One of those rare cute and comfy and chic outfits. Wear to work, a party, a dinner, a lunch, or just at home. Flats would look just as great with this outfit. Her Rodarte for Opening Ceremony skirt, my Giant Dwarf headband, her Topshop sweater and Jean-Michel Casabat heels. 

Outfit no. 4

Her Yigal Azrouel dress and Nikes. Trust me- this is a major trend. But you MUST know how to do it correctly. 

Outfit no. 5

I love her matching polkadot Guilietta top and trousers. They look awesome with her James Pearse puffer, not to mention her green Steve Madden heels. Quite bright.

Outfit no. 6

Hilary's like me. We are both in love with fancy pants. Hers are from Zara. So I guess we both love Zara too. Her (stolen from my other aunt) vintage T-shirt, Barney's Co Op heels, my Kate Spade shades. Monochrome is sometimes the best way to go. 

Outfit no. 7

You can tell by the face of Alber Elbaz of Lanvin that he approves of her gorgeous Lanvin slip dress. She has a couple of these skinny-strapped numbers- and they all look amazing on her. Also, I thought that wearing the pearls down the back added an elegant twist. 

Outfit no. 8

The last outfit. We both decided that she would wear this one out first. Her Jane Tran barrette, ALC tank, Jenny Kayne trousers, Prada bag, and clogs. I made her promise to give me the bag in her will because I'm that obsessed with it. Prada + sequins? Is there anything better?


That was enough styling for one day. Expect another post that covers her hipster house.

  1. I received this dress as a birthday gift from my parents and brother; they got the copper colored one. I fell in love with the dress as soon as I pulled it out of the packaging.
