She’s So Fancy: Kristie


Meet Kristie, my fellow painter and extremely stylish friend. We even have the same boots, and often come to class matching. #twinsies

Here are some facts about her:

-She has the greatest collection of thrift shop flannels. I envy her ability to find so many. You can never really have enough flannels and thrift shops are the perfect place to find what I like to call “real” flannels.

– She cannot live without pizza or cosmetics.  Preach girl!

-She is a list maker. So pen and planner is a must have at all times.

-Her fashion influences come from the underground fashion blogger scene, those bloggers that should be known, or will be known. Their Instagrams are banging, as Kristie would put it.

Kristie’s style is clean and polished with a boho flair. Simple shapes and styles paired with one of kind pieces give her day to day looks a classic edge. I often find myself having extreme closet envy.  Girl’s got style.

Fierce right? Kristie is sporting fall in an oversized tweed coat, with summer’s favorite sundress peaking out, tights and warm socks. Leather Chelsea boots, and feather felt hat complete the look.  This look is effortlessly cool.

He’s So Fancy: Curtis


Meet Curtis. My best friend.

Here are some fun facts about him:

1. Curtis has a strong hatred for cats, to the point where sometimes I believe he’s afraid of them…and I like to make fun of him for it. (Even though, I myself, am not a fan of cats but, he doesn’t need to know that.)

2.  He is a man, who owns his very own Tardis. Honest.

3.  He loves a good independent film, no matter universally terrible independent film endings are. ( I highly suggest After the Dark. That is our favorite).

Curtis and I live in the same hometown and now go to the same college. He has been my companion for about three years now and actually, we first met at my senior prom (insert Awwwww).  His style is almost as killer as his heart. And let’s face it, the camera loves him.

Curtis loves bold patterns and man accessories, which I am a personally a huge fan of. He shows off his style in a tribal button up, gray pants, combat oxford boots paired with a pocket-watch necklace, ring, bracelets and a corduroy cap.

To see more of Curtis find him on Instagram here

Check out his band, called twisted vibes. (He’s the lead singer) They have an ep out! Find out all about them here

To get the Curtis look raid your nearest thrift shop or vintage shop.  Also check out these fine retailers ASOS, PacSun, and Urbanoutfitter.

Lastly, this note is for you Curtis. Thanks for being my sunshine on cloudy days. Sometimes I make my own clouds and you make them go away despite my sass. Thanks for being my best friend and model. I love you dear.

She’s so Fancy: Throwback

I am dreaming of some cold weather right about now so I searched the archives for some winter weather style pictures.  Yes, I dragged my cousin and sister out into the woods but the results I think were worth the risk of frost bite.

Now I’m not saying I’m ready for snow already however, I do miss going outside without sweating. And jackets….I miss jackets!!!!

Thanks to Emily and Annie for putting up with my crazy ideas.

The best way to achieve these looks are LAYERS! Layers, layers and more layers. Something that is not needed in upstate New York right now but definitely a trend I am currently missing.  Tie a flannel around your waist grab your favorite bomber and this look is yours. Its never too early to start searching for good transition pieces from warm to chilly weather.


She’s so Fancy (Photographer Edition): Molly

My mom’s friend Molly a few months ago did a photo session with my sister and I for a project she titled Made to be Free. You can find the full gallery here

Here is my personal favorite from this series.

be free     be free 2


She has such an eye for expressing a person’s natural, God-given beauty and of course all she has a keen eye for fashion as well.

Molly is a beauty and here are some interesting facts about her:

1. Her dog has been to the vet more times than any other dog. Included but not limited to the time her eat a bag of expresso beans.

2. She works at a pregnancy center serving pregnant women. She’s a star!

3. She always seems to find the BEST thrift and consignment deals. Her talent is unrivaled, hands down. Needless to say I need to take her with me thrifting because I am not so lucky in that department.

Molly came up for a business trip to good ‘ole upstate New York and we made time to fit in a little photo session in my back yard. Here is some of her best shots.

Molly’s entire philosophy surrounding her series was to live in the freedom we have been given, and to embrace all forms of beauty. In the end that’s what  Proprium Floris is all about. Embracing and expressing many forms of beauty, no matter what size, shape, height, color, complexion. This type of freedom currently isn’t embraced by the fashion industry so I want to encourage the broadening of the industry to include more types of beauties. Everyone is free to be beautiful and fashion is not just for models.

Julia loves mixing prints, especially retro ones and her pin-upesque style has me inspired. From her nude heels to her bow tights, this girls got it going on! Her makeup routine usually involves cat-eye liner and some truly red lipstick.   Some gingham and high waisted shorts paired with sheer bow tights encompasses her unique look. Im obsessed with her closet full of fitted dresses, polka dots and thrift store finds.

Her grunge, laid back, style is so in right now. I love how easy and laid back Emily’s look is, throw on a tee and a flannel and you have a complete outfit. She isn’t afraid of color, or texture. Throw on a pair of vans and you’re ready to go. If it gets warm tie the flannel around your waist and show off that tank! Thanks Emily for being apart of  “She’s so Fancy”.
