dotty gets bookish

book red lime inspired style outfit blog style dash dot dotty fashion colour color brights
[wearing]
white: theory (exactly)
red: vintage liz claiborne (similar)
green: souvenir from london
gray: forever21
belt: gap (similar)
shiny oxfords: forever21(similar)


today's outfit started with a book and it's similarity in hue to a punchy silk shirt i recently picked up. 
and i froze my ankles off this morning. 
it might be march, but it is definitely not spring. 

oh, and a quick question...would you include your blog on a resume for a job that's semi-fashion-related?  is it too personal or does it give you some credibility?

  1. I love that you're focusing on color this week! I need to do that more often. As for including the blog on a resume, I struggle with that too. I'm a fashion major, so it's definitely relevant to my field, but I feel a little weird about it because I still feel my blog is sort of "amateur". But your blog looks very professional, so I think mentioning it in a cover letter would be appropriate. Good luck with whatever you're applying for!

  4. I think it's okay to put your blog on your resume for a fashion related job. I wouldn't put it on my resume, but my blog isn't relevant to my field.

  5. I think it depends... if it's a very fashion focused position then yes, list the blog. If its a semi fashion focused position then maybe you can bring it up during an interview if it feels comfortable? Hmm, that's a toughie but good luck!!

  6. I love how well red and green can work together when done right, and this is perfect!
    I think I'd include the blog - blogs are a lot of work, they show dedication and passion.

  7. I like how you kept it springy with a white blazer and shoes! I would definitely include a blog on your resume for any fashion/design/marketing types of jobs. It shows you are tech savvy and know how to handle social networking, which companies are very interested in. Plus yours is so put-together and inspiring, you have nothing to hide! Good luck with the job :)

  10. Whoa, those colors are a perfect match! I love the muted, almost minty green - keeps things from feeling overtly Christmas-y.

    As for the resume question ... I think I'd include the blog. It speaks to involvement in a growing area of the fashion world, I think, and the way you've executed dash dot dotty feels very professional to me. But word to the wise: I'd go back through your posts and see if there's anything you want to remove, like old rants about a co-worker or political opinions you'd rather not share with a new boss, etc. Just in case. =) Good luck!

  11. I absolutely love that you were inspired by that book cover--and it turned out to be a great mix of colors on too!

    And I am in agreement with Sara here--I think you should definitely include your blog if the job is fashion-related. It's personal, because it's all about you, but I don't think it's too personal to share with a company. But I do think it's a good idea to double check to make sure you don't have anything you wouldn't want them to know on your blog. But I think it would be an asset to your resume!

  12. Yay! You do red and green together in a wonderfully non-Christmassy way! :)

  13. For a fashion job, I would include it. For other jobs I wouldn't. Those colors really are spot on in mimicking the book cover!

  18. that's a good point! thanks!

  19. it's not typically relevant to my field, but a stumbled across a job listing that's a crossover!

  20. thanks! that's neat that you're a fashion major!

  21. You have proven that red plus green does not always equal Christmas.
    Ooops, I see Claire and I have the same thought pattern today. :)
    As for the resume question, I think if you can directly tie your blogging experience with some specific aspect of the job requirements I would include it, but otherwise play it safe.

  22. Love your colors! those jeans are awesome too. Thank goodness we found each other--we're partners in skinny rolled-up jeans!

  23. For a job that you need to prove you skills in fashion, styling, writing, photography, HTML, or any other web work, I say yes. If the job is completely unrelated, then no. You may want to have 2 versions of your resume if you're applying to a variety of industries. Good luck!!

  24. You totally need to theme an entire week around dressing like your books!

    I'm lookin' at you, sparkly book on the bookshelf!
