I decided to break the rules of street style for this post. I caught Aleicia at The Continental Old City during the Sweet and Savory: Honey and Hives event that I wrote about during the Philadelphia Science Festival. Her necklace intrigued me, and I had to ask her about it and take a couple photos.
She actually bought the necklace at another Science Festival event focusing on taxidermy. It was designed and created by Beth Beverly, a taxidermist who makes amazing things out of the unlikeliest of materials. Aleicia mentioned that she also plans to wear this piece as a headdress.
Dominique is originally from Maryland and moved to Philly to attend the Art Institute. She spends her days working a 9-to-5 in insurance and the rest of her time working on freelance photography, styling, and blogging. She loves finding her clothes in consignment and vintage shops. Her belt is vintage Coach, and she thinks that this skirt is vintage Ralph Lauren. Most of this ensemble came from Buffalo Exchange, including her great statement necklace. Her boots were a recent purchase from Steve Madden.
I love her long wool skirt. Maxi skirts were such a big thing this year, but I haven’t seen as many long wool skirts this winter. I have a few vintage ones in my closet that I don’t wear that often, but Dominique inspired me to pull them out and see what I can do with them!
