Icing on the Cake





The title of this post says it all: it's in the details. To me, accessories (nail polish, shoes and bags included, of course!) make the outfit - or at least put the icing on the cake. When Taylor of Sterling Style did this details post, it was one of my personal favorites and I got inspired to compile one of my own. Here are some of my favorite detail shots.

PS. If you follow me on Twitter, you already saw this: A few of us did such a fun DVF/Refinery 29 shoot that you can check out here . I would greatly appreciate if you voted for your favorite outfit from the shoot.
