the theory silk combo midi dress

the mixed media midi = MMM

oh you know, just 7:30AM and iโ€™m hanging out on rooftops with @madelineharperphoto for these pictures. just another day in life of JD. haha. we had to much fun this morning though. after struggling to find a background for this dress and walking with the ever so patient Madeline to find another spot, i looked up and randomly said, hmm letโ€™s check out the rooftop! DINGx3! best idea ever. funny how it always works out right?! as a result iโ€™m spamming you with photos of myself because we had a blast shooting this one! #sorrynotsorry

one way to have fun with fashion is to play with texture. if youโ€™re not sure how the easiest way is to purchase a one piece (dress, or jumpsuit/romper) that is made of two different materials. honestly, iโ€™ve always been skeptical of these. i think it was seeing cheap jersey material mixed with chiffon/polyester and i was like NOPE. but here, it is done so right itโ€™s almost wrong. when i was shopping at @theory__ this dress didnโ€™t really catch my eye, but it was the sales associate who was wearing it that made me want to try it on! advertising at its finest yโ€™all. glad i did because i am OBSESSED. the length (even on short 5โ€™2โ€ me), the slit, the silk (again, donโ€™t get me started on the Theory silk) you can see how it flows in the photos #effortlessly. the top part is a ribbed material and it hugs perfectly. anyways, i took the opportunity to shoot some leg action #angelinajoliewannabe.

side ramblings: this past week was a long one but noteables include: a low-key girls night in (#GNI?), a haircut by my gal @elizabeth.jane.hair, AND the @theory__ fitting for their fall collection focusing on cashmere and wool. iโ€™ve never been to a fitting before (cue in all the excitement i tried to contain all week long, i still canโ€™t believe this is my life). IT WAS SO MUCH FUN and of course i had the hardest time deciding on something. if you saw my stories i picked something way different than my usual style! canโ€™t wait to share. lastly, FALL is here officially. but not really, itโ€™s SLIGHTLY dropped in temperature but come on i wanna bring out all my outerwear ASAP, put out all my pumpkins (by that i mean all 8 of themโ€ฆ theyโ€™re out already who am i kidding?! haha), put up my Christmas tree (i know, iโ€™m getting crazy but itโ€™s my first Christmas tree in my own home!!). ah, FALL, I LOVE THEE.
