Lace tank 8.3.11

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? :)

Sketch 8.21.11

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?

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!

Black Chiffon

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 :)
