Sister Style: Monochrom-tastic!

Emma 2Emma 3EMMA of A Beautiful MessEmma 4Confession: monochrom-tastic is not a real word. But I had you there for a second, didn't I? I do love me an easy, one color outfit now and again. It's so easy to match. Wait, does that even count as matching? 

Emma's wearing: sheath dress c/o Emma O Clothing, scalloped shorts/ASOS, sandals c/o BC Footwear, sunnies/UO.Elsie 2Elsie 3ELSIE of A Beautiful MessElsie 4This is sort of a causal take on the little-black-dress look. A summer day version, if you will. It can be fun to find outfits that can easily transition from a work day to a night out.

Elsie's wearing: dress c/o Modcloth, shoes c/o Seychelles, necklace c/o Shlomit Ofir, sunnies/Modcloth and belt gift from Darlingtonia.Sister Style on A Beautiful MessSister Style on A Beautiful Mess This weekend we are welcoming a new girl to our local shop team. I wish Elsie and I got to work more hours in our little brick and mortar but we are so lucky to have a few wonderful gals who help us manage it all. Being too busy is a bittersweet thing; but we really can't complain as we move forward with so many exciting projects you'll be seeing on this site soon! We are already starting to dream and gear up for the fall season. xo. Emma (and Elsie too!)

  • I LOVE your dresses!


  • You’re both so gorgeous and cute — You know what I’d love to learn from you? How you get up the courage to pose for shots like these. I’ve been following A Beautiful Mess since it was a personal blog and I’ve seen an evolution in the way you and your models pose. I’m sure you can share specific tips!

  • You both look beautiful. As much as I love colourful outfits I have to say that a total black look is always a win! You rocked it!

  • Hi, like many others I love black. Those dresses are gorgeous.
    Just posted a little bit about you on our blog, I think there are a lot more people out there who could be inspired by you. As I read on Etsy recently: “When people make the choice to spend their money and time more consciously, a new economy begins to emerge.
    Keep up the good work!

  • Love!
