a good cause








Outfit Details:
vintage cape - thrifted
Marc Jacobs top - bought it at the Women In Need charity sale
polka dot blouse and Aryn K. sweater blazer - c/o ModCloth (old - sweater also worn here, shirt worn here and here)
vintage gloves - gift from my mom
leather shorts - c/o Rugby
Rebecca Minkoff quilted Swing bag - Confederacy
Dolce Vita platforms - Free People
pyramid ring and cuff - c/o Sorrelli
large ring - Forever 21

I meant to post this the day before yesterday, but our internet went out (again) and I lost yesterday to a horrible migraine. That's the second one I've had this month, which is not exactly ideal. I usually have auras (and can therefore start treating them before they get out of control) but for the last two, I haven't had one. Anyway, enough about headaches! Onto the outfit.

I picked up this top at the holiday charity sale we organized for Women In Need. I couldn't believe what great items were donated to the cause. In addition to generous donations from Lilla P, Arrojo, Seychelles, Cynthia Vincent, Urban Decay, Radiant Cosmetics, Coach, and R&Em, we had a ton of donations from fellow bloggers and readers. I was so moved by everyone's willingness to support such a wonderful organization. We were able to raise over $1500 and I'm positive we can raise even more in the next effort. I can't wait to start planning the next one!

  5. So sorry to hear about your migraine; they are the worst!

    Your outfit is lovely. Not only to look at, but I like the play of different textures, from the suede on the shoe and the different weaves of the sweater and jacket to the leather and the gauze of the shirt. It looks comfortable to wear
