Recollection styling

 photo 3_zps2135c49d.jpg

Remember the post I did a few weeks ago, about funding an online store for Recollection? Well, thanks to all the support, the Recollection online store is now open! 

The woman behind the label, Sandra Murphy, asked me to style a dress from her Autumn/Winter 2013 collection, and I can safely say this dress will be a wardrobe staple for years to come. There are so many ways to accessorize it! Now that a chill is in the air it's the perfect opportunity to add a cozy sweater and adventure seeking boots. 

Although the cardigan is something I made, it looks quite a bit like The Miss Woolford Cardigan available on the site! 

It's cotton (yay!) so it'll be a year round dress, layering with tights and scarves in winter and adding nothing but a brooch in spring. Everything from the seam finishing to the small details make the frock extra special, and all her clothing is made in the U.S. which is becoming more and more important to me. So do check out the new line at Recollection, and stay tuned for a giveaway!

Enjoying so many things about this look - great color combination, beautiful texture, fun accessories (that brooch!) - you look fabulous! I've never heard of Recollection before but after seeing your dress I had to check out their boutique - my wish list just got a bit longer.

You look absolutely gorgeous. What an incredibly pretty dress! I love that it's a piece that can be worn year-round. It looks perfect with your yellow cardigan! Great boots too. Such a classic and cute outfit.

Lucky you getting to style that gorgeous dress! Mustard yellow and purple have to be one of the best color combinations in my opinion! I can't wait for the give-away :)

Beautifully styled. Navy and aged saffron are such a strikingly lovely, endearing colour combination.

Oh my....love this! I will definitely be making a plaid shirtwaist now! Oh, and will have to learn how to knit in order to make matching cardigan and hat.
