Last Purchase: A vintage lavender velvet and chiffon dress Shareen Mitchell picked out for me from her vintage shop in Los Angeles. (She’s the best at showing you things you never knew you absolutely had to have.) I just wore the dress with a faux fur vest to a holiday party.
Next Purchase: A new black bag to wear at night. In my dreams it’s one of the WGACA Vintage Chanels. Then I wake up and go back and forth between MATT & NAT’s Sasha and Botkier’s Bruce.

Your Style in 3 Words or Less: Feminine. Polished. Chic. I’m always up for trying out the latest trends but whether I’m wearing a ’60s-style sheath or harem pants, I always like to look put-together.
When you’re not tweeting you’re: Trying on clothes in my closet to come up with new outfits. Dreaming about all the new shoes I want to buy. Cuddling with my chic rescue dog, Bunny Bell. Eating sushi. And blogging, blogging, and more blogging.
About Sydne's picks:
(1) My go-to silhouette for dresses is usually high-neck and skintight. Over the holidays I’ve been into more forgiving ruched styles. I love how versatile this dress is. You can wear it casual with a faux fur vest and boots for day. Then slip on a sparkly necklace at night and wear your hair in a messy ponytail to show off the unexpected pop of lace in back. A.L.C. – Lace Back Twisty Dress
(2) At 5’3”, the platform is my best friend. I wore these Tory Burch booties six times in October as part of my ttF Fashion Staples Series. You’d be surprised by how many outfits you can top off with a pair of hiking booties. Tory Burch – Halima Suede Platform Booties
(3) Statement necklaces are ideal for travel. You can bring just a few dresses and tops and make them look completely different with the jewelry you pack in your carry-on. Layers of two-tone pearls are an updated take on the classic. Juliet & Company – Black & White Graduated Pearl Necklace
