dressing charlotte in my favorite new outfit

First, let me apologize on behalf of Charlotte.

She has been absent the last few weeks from her usual spot on Wednesday mornings due to a short stint in rehab. It turns out her modeling debut, mentioned in her last appearance on Makeunder, launched her on a quick 15-minute tour of fame and fortune. Finding that life on the runway in Milan and Paris was not all sparkle and fun, she turned to drinking. With her petite frame, alcohol spelled disaster (the girl has no legs!). But luckily it did not take long for her to sober up and realize that Jess LC was where she belonged. We welcomed her back with open arms and we are leaving all Pinot Grigio out of her sight (which isn’t hard considering she has no eyes).

As for her new duds, these v-necks are soon to be my new summer uniform. I love the neckline and it looks great with my ever-present cardigans, which are a necessity in air conditioned buildings. For jewelry, I have been pairing my Grandma’s vintage “C” necklace (C for Carol, not Constable) with simple pieces for the State St. and Elm St. collections. The result is laid back but fills the “skin canvas” the deep V provides.

If I was to transition one of these tops for night, I would wear some large hoops or statement earrings and leave the neck bare.

    lovely of course! I have been digging layering necklaces too… like these looks!

    @ Kwana: Loooving the v-necks too. I found some $8 v-necks (the black and navy ones on Charlotte) from Target. Might want to try there.

    @ Jill: Yep, double necklaces is totally cool and a great way to get more wear out of pendant necklaces.

    @ Jess: Glad you like them Jess, welcome to Makeunder ūüôā

    Thanks to Charlotte for her revived debut! I’m so glad she’s gotten her life back in order. I look forward to seeing more of her and more of your adorable design ideas!

    I love the simplicity of these outfits. The v-necks look so comfortable, and you know I love the jewelery! The State St. circle looks particularly good with the C necklace, I think.

    @ Amy: I agree, it has been great to have her back to her normal self. She is even returning to her meditation practice. I try to mediate with her but she outlasts me every time.

    @ Susie: Absolutely! I can’t wait for you to see the new collection too! Check it out tomorrow.
