Contrast










I came home to a stack of packages; I have never felt so special! Usually, I don't get anything more than bills or return packages (it's like a big "PSYCH!" every single time). It ended up being incredibly convenient, because I had nothing to wear. Almost everything in my closet, at the moment, is meant for fall or winter; everything else is in boxes or the dirty laundry. I put together this outfit with three of my newly opened items (two from ModCloth and one from Cambridge Satchel, and paired them with my all time favorite blouse, which cost me a whopping dollar. I used to have this blouse in two colors, and somehow the other one disappeared. Strange.

The combination of an electric blue body-con skirt, bright yellow satchel and lace blouse may seem odd, but I like the contrast. I don't do all out sexy; it looks forced on me. I like a little more of a balance, of grown up and girly. As for the bag, it has quickly become my new favorite. I'm slowly getting back into smaller bags. My shoulder is thanking me.

Outfit Details:
Vintage, lace blouse with a button up back: Sanford Flea Market, back in '03
Belt: thrifted
Discotheque Skirt: ModCloth
Yellow Satchel: Cambridge Satchel Company
Bewitching Peep Toes: ModCloth

    That yellow bag! I'm not usually a yellow fan, but that is the best colour for it hands down!

  20. ok, so i've been religiously following your blog for awhile and I love everything you wear and feel no need to repeat what other comment-makers say about your cute-ness and outfit perfection. Unfortunately, I disagree with them this time. I love the lace top, but its throwing this whole thing off. If it were not up on your neck it might work, but it just seems out of place against the skirt and belt.

    anyway, I love your blog and you and hope I have in no way offended you. you are still fantastic and one of my favorite bloggers fo' life! <3
