Thank goodness for this blog. My outfit post two weeks ago has kick started me back into my usual style (good-bye jeans and tees!).
A couple notes about this outfit.
This purse is quickly becoming my favourite purse. I almost didn't buy it. Would've been the BIGGEST mistake EVER! (exaggerate much?!) It goes with everything! And it's the easiest way to inject some cute vintage style to any outfit.
I did not buy this dress at Forever 21. I bought it at Ricki's Sample sale when I worked there for $10. And strangely enough, I never wear this dress in the summer. Only in winter. There is something about layering this dress that I love. I am not interested in wearing it by itself. Ever.
This is what I wore shopping (minus coat, scarf and mitts):
Black Beret: Joe Fresh
Vintage Pearl Necklace : Thrifted
Vintage Lace and Satin Cami: Thrifted
Turquoise Wrap Sweater: Thrifted
Grey Jersey Dress: Forever 21
Plaid Tights: Ricki's
Socks: Joe Fresh
Boots: Le Chateau
Vintage Needlework Purse: Thrifted
It's rejuvenating me for my return to work in the new year. Last week I signed my contract for my first show of 2012! I can't wait!
Just gotta get through Christmas and New Year's! And remember to enjoy them before I get busy with work again.
