Friday Fashion Frenzy is a feature where I link up with multiple style blogs.
Blogging Besties is the brain child of Alex @ Undergraduate Style and Whitney @ Whitney à la Mode. It’s based on the idea of “take one, pass it on,” but we’re passing on an element from another blogger’s outfit.
I passed on the lace from Alex’s look and kept the top in the same color family.
This week it’s all about the bow tie necklace, because:

Gracey has brought back Literary Stylings for 2015! The idea is to get sartorially inspired by a book you read the previous month. I read a TON of Cozies in January, several of which were set in the 1920s, including Gone West, A Daisy Dalrymple Mystery, by Carola Dunn.
The 1920s are a popular era for Cozies, probably because they were a time of huge social change. The world was opening up for many people, especially women. Daisy is an impoverished aristocrat who has created a career for herself writing travel articles. Of course, being that this is a Cozy series, she finds bodies everywhere she goes!
I went for a period look with a handkerchief hem, faux drop waist, vintage locket, pearls, cloche (from my daughter’s dress up box), and filtered photography.
If you enjoy Literary Stylings, please come back on 2/19/15 for Thoughtful Third Thursday!
