"Am I wrong for trying to reach the things that I can't see?"

I'm going for a modern-day Edie Sedgewick vibe today on the blog if you couldn't tell. I had this fantastic polaroid camera sitting around my room because it looked cool, and I figured it would be a great accessory when I went super mod on the blog. I got the camera in elementary school at a yard sale and a friend and I took photos on it in her driveway of us on broomsticks like we were witches.

My look is a pretty straightfoward and cute but easy to wear outfit, albeit the slightly scratchy sequins. I would wear this ensemble to a party or an informal work event. I actually made one of my friends wear this exact shirt and pair of leggings and lug the camera around Brooklyn two Halloweens ago as Edie (she had short blonde hair and no costume planned!). Since the days that I have stopped pretending I am a witch (except Halloween when Ben and I were Ron and Hermione), this camera clearly gets used as a prop more often but I hope to change that soon. If anyone knows of places to get cheap polaroid film, please be my guest and share them with me!

Outfit Highlights: A vintage sequin shirt from Princeton, NJ and H&M shiny black leggings. The necklace was a gift. 

Style Tips: When wearing sequins, there's no need to go overboard on jewelry. Pair the look with one statement piece. And this is coming from the queen of accessorizing!
