Sartorial Sunday: Bespoke Beauty

Head to Toe: Top and slacks, handmade by Cynthia Loynd // Wedges, Tommy Hilfiger // Bag, Steve Madden

My super-talented mom sewed me this outfit (which I'm officially obsessed with) as a gift, and I had the perfect occasion to wear it at CTC&G's Innovation in Design Awards. It's perfectly tailored and truly bespoke (a word that's often thrown around in the design world), so I got a lot of compliments on it at my magazine's annual awards celebration. I'm so lucky to have such a talented, and stylish, lady for a mother—just in case you were wondering where I got it from. *winky emoji* A huge thank you to her!

On another note, you may have noticed a slight change in the format of New England Romance. I was feeling like my daily outfit posts were becoming a chore (and often a snore?), so I decided to do some restructuring. You can now see my outfit posts every Sunday (and follow me on Instagram for more #ootd's), along with more thematic posts during the week focused on trend reports and weekend fun. What do you think about this shift?
