I got this fab polka-dot blouse at the thrift store on Saturday, but when I put the outfit together for the weekend (with inspiration from Style Pantry: http://stylepantry.com/2011/03.....axi-skirt/ ) I wasn't all that happy with it. Turns out all it needed was the fuschia flower pin from Ann Taylor Loft!
White button-down blouse with red dots: Vintage thrifted
Cobalt blue pencil skirt: Halogen
Red blazer: H&M
Wide red croc belt with gold buckle: Thrifted
Fuschia flower pin: AT Loft
Gold chain necklace: Vintage 80s from back in the day
Blue pumps: Madden Girl
Blue bag: B Makowsky
The next look is something I've been working on for weeks! I tore the DKNY ad out of a magazine at the hair salon because I thought I could make this look work with Marley's pink Gap jacket from the swap. I found the actual DKNY skirt online, but it was $395 and even though I love it, I wasn't about to pay that much for a mini! I thought I was going to have to make do with my plain tan Halogen pencil skirt when I found this beauty on the clearance rack at Old Navy for $8.49! I'm also totally tickled that I found a scarf on eBay that's a darn close twin to the pricey DKNY scarf. Oh, and if you go to http://www.dkny.com and watch the video introduction, you'll see the model is wearing red ankle-strap shoes!
Pink corduroy jacket: Gap via swap
Tan ruffled skirt: Old Navy
Red button-down shirt: H&M
Scarf: Vintage via eBay
Red clutch: Thrifted
Red ankle-strap shoes: Nine West ca. 1998
Black ribbon belt: From a dress long gone
I know this is wildly age-inappropriate but I had a total blast putting it together! And I wore it to meet forum member Becky for dinner this evening! But that's another post...
