I love this shirt, except that it's a little bit short and the bracelet-length sleeves really bug me. [Does anyone else have wardrobe items like that? With excepts? What do you do?] I "solved" the second problem here by scrunching the sleeves. (It doesn't tolerate very much scrunching, but it's working OK so far this morning). And the first was somewhat lessened by wearing a belt. Anyway, the patterning and overlapping pieces always remind me a bit of tattoos, so it somehow feels both pretty and tough. (And I don't think I've ever met a paisley I didn't love.)

It felt like everything came together perfectly on this one. The shirt background matches the boots, the rose stitching on the boots matches the shirt, and I got to wear never-worn lace-and-cables (with beads!) socks. I know the stitching on the boots and the socks don't show when it's worn this way, but still. These details add to my happiness with this outfit. Which was high.

Thoughts? Comments? Suggestions?
