Sunglasses: The Row by Linda Farrow Gallery

Dress: striped silk shift dress by Tela sourced at Clementines

Cardigan: Amour Vert

Bag: MZ Wallace x Njodeka Akunyili Crosby

Shoes: Costume National sandals

Origin Story: Birthday wishes came true for more than just the birthday girl that day. Everyone who saw were enthralled. The Maria Cornejo signature mix of pattern and flattering material all server as the appropriate canvas for those shoes!

Location: The Packard, Capitol Hill

Sunglasses: Miu Miu

Silk Top: Amour Vert sourced at Goodwill

Midi Skirt: Yohi Yamamoto + Noir

Origin Story: The top, a flowing yet structured chiffon material, was acquired at the Goodwill located on E. John. Originally hoping to pair the top with a textured, patterned skirt - pencil perhaps - Felicia instead wore a flowing navy skirt that provided an unexpected [delightful] contrast to the black background of the top.

Location: Chophouse Row, Capitol Hill

Bag: Unknown but timelessly, universally fabulous

Sunglasses: Linda Farrow Gallery

Origin Story: This patent red vintage bag was delivered during lockdown by cultivator of couture, Felicia. Like some fashion deity yet-unamed, they grant every users' prayers.

The sunglasses have an even more storied history: discovered at a sample sale over a decade ago (!) by Felicia (of course), they transform every face into red carpet-worthy; they're basically the Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants sunglasses.
