The weather has already fluctuated from chilly to roasting this week, and I didn't trust it to stay warm enough today to pull out another frock. Instead I decided to wear a mixed era silhouette. The skirt I found on the racks at Rag O Rama during my denim jacket holy grail trip. I had this skirt in my hand the whole time but couldn't decide if it was horrific or awesome...
Most of the time some slight alterations take those borderline secondhand pieces from the horrible side to the awesome. I have a handful of dresses that need to be doctored or collared or hemmed to make them wearable. This skirt could probably use a snip snip and hem, but every now and then I like to appreciate pieces in their original form.
And the necklace--Anthropologie's statement necklaces always pique my interest, but when I try them in person for myself, they are often overwhelming. Too heavy, too big, too...I don't know, too much, for me anyway. Such was the case with the triple strand beaded necklace and the Stormy Seas necklace. When I saw this lighter and more wallet-friendly option at Forever 21, I grabbed both colors in glee.
This color combo is definitely out of the box for me. Pink? And white? And yellow? As a recovering tomboy, the palette still feels a bit foreign to me. It was Anjali of goldenmeans who convinced me earlier today with her Botanical Stroll dress outfit (yes, I am so behind reading!). Totally serendipitous, and it seals the deal for me that I can pull off the cat lady dress. Now I just need to get my hands on it...
