Today I wore a lace tank top from Nordstrom Rack and a pair of black skinny jeans from Forever 21 (the ring in the first photo is also one of my favorites from Forever 21). I paired my light grey lace tank with a white tube top, not only because it best showcases the texture of the shirt, but because, well, you just can't wear this tank by itself. I love lace, I really do, but it can be tricky sometimes, as it is usually see-through, which makes it unwearable on its own. Choosing a top to go underneath a lace garment is more of an art than a science: it has to be just right. You can't have the color or texture of the undershirt take away from the lovely lace on top can you? :)

This is a quick sketch I did (with a little help from pixlr) of a 70's blouse with front pockets and voluminous sleeves, paired with two large cuff bracelets, a pencil skirt, and a clutch. I'm on the lookout for a similar blouse for fall, but haven't seen anything like it on the racks recently.If only I had the time and skills to make this top!
I find myself lamenting about this a lot. I will have a piece in my head that I am dying to wear and I'll search high and low in my local stores but can never find it!
Anyone else feel the same?

Jacket-Forever 21, Dress-Marshalls, Flower hairpiece-Charlotte Russe, Bag-Urban Outfitters
I have been on the hunt for a jean jacket for a couple of months now, and finally came across one in Forever 21's online store. I ordered it in a small, and it is still slightly too big, but I don't feel too badly about the fit because it wasn't very expensive. You know you've bought a great piece when you bring it home and can immediately and effortlessly start to make outfits with it :)

This color palette feels very 70’s :) The decade was huge on the runways for spring and fall!My skirt and the outfit remind me of Gucci's Spring RTW collection, specifically my favorite look.
Hope everyone is having a great Monday!

I wore this dress out on a quick trip to make some returns and ended up getting a handful of compliments on it! I bought it from a little shop in Hong Kong on my last day. I love the swishy skirt, the mesh upper, and the little pockets on the front :)
