Anyone who grew up watching Clueless knows that calling someone "a Betty" is very high praise indeed. But since I draw a lot of inspiration (including my bangs) from a certain icon who spelled her name with an "-ie," I think I might rather be called "a Bettie" instead. I'd like to think this adorable Bettie Page brooch from Baccurelli looks a little like me (even though I don't resemble the real Bettie very much), and after receiving it as a Christmas gift from my mom, I'm glad I finally got a chance to wear it!
I think it's probably safe to say that winter is over (fingers crossed!), but it's still a bit too chilly most days to go without a jacket – or, at the very least, a cute cardigan! I found this one on sale at Dangerfield and love so much about it. (It's no longer available, but they have tons of other cute cardis.) Since I'm so into separates lately, I decided to turn my black Jenny dress from Pinup Girl Clothing into a skirt by adding a wide belt, which hides any extra fabric from the sweater. Neither of these pieces is ultra-flashy, but that's why they've become versatile staples in my wardrobe. I'll always have a large space dedicated to statement pieces, but it feels nice to dress a bit more simply sometimes!
