What To Wear

At least twice a month I like to venture down to SOWA Open Market on Harrison Ave. It is a local artisan market that lasts about 4 months and features over a hundred artists' work along with antiques, food, and more. I had to keep cool seeing as it was 90 degrees out and paired a light dress with airy sandals. This whole look is under $100.
H&M dress ($12.95); AE sandals ($15 sale, 2 seasons ago); Club Monaco belt ($7 clearance, last season); Michael Kors vintage bag ($15 vintage shop) H&M feather necklace ($3.95)

H&M is a great resource for finding something basic on the cheap and for trying trends. It won't cost a lot for you to try something different. The dress can also be transitioned to wear for several occasions.

While at the market, I once again saw artist Josephine Plaszewski whom I adore. Her paintings are pastel dreams with subjects like a dog with a crown, birthday cakes, and cotton candy flowers. She definitely has a signature with her serene color palette and painting technique. Most interesting, Josephine is a green artist using recycled canvas, brushes, etc. I love her stacking teapot Alice in Wonderland lamps.
Check her out at Queen of Green Art.

I completely agree with you about H&M. I take trendy pieces, put them with my more expensive classics, and the look works. Love the AE sandals too. Great find!
