rainy gray (with subtle spikes)


It’s always a little odd when there’s a thunderstorm in Chicago in February, which is traditionally the ongoing heart of our winters. But, I’ll take rain over snow any day, so I grabbed my umbrella and shot some photos outdoors in the rain! I’m sporting one of my new favorite jeweler’s pieces: Joomi Lim. Her usage of, and perspective on, spikes just really rocks my world (read more below). I can’t say I was especially drawn to spikes prior to seeing her work…but now find myself feeling like Super Woman in Spikes, thanks to Ms. Lim. It’s a rainy gray day, but I’m still feeling super spiky and strong in spite of it.

Sweater: Banana Republic ($17 marked down from approx $80)

Top: thrift ($3)

Pants: Gap ($5 marked down from approx $60)

Jewelry: all spiked jewelry- Joomi Lim (bracelet $159, rings $150)

Shoes: Nine West via thrift ($12, retail for $100)


Fashion Huntress tips:

1) If you aren’t familiar with Joomi Lim, check out this great interview here: http://newyorkcalled.com/portfolio/new-york-called-joomi-lim/. Please note this is not a sponsored post, just a shout-out. Some of her pieces are on sale online at ifchic.com. Enjoy!

2) I’m not sure what’s happening lately weather-wise, so I find myself dressing half for winter, half for spring (hence the pastels lately). I say, wear what you love and forget about the seasonal rules! It’s more fun that way, anyway. 🙂 And if you’re still in winter mode, Banana Republic has a great sale on winter apparel right now (where I got my sweater featured here), so check it out!

Does anyone else have indie artists they love? Fill me in! Thanks so much for stopping by, readers! I appreciate it so very much!
