It has been all week, and I have been so unhappy about it. Not a single sunny photo with my new lens. And it's supposed to get worse tomorrow.
Today I wanted to participate in some challenges proposed by other bloggers --
Iris at 260 Days No Repeats is having a "You've Got This" Fall fashion trends challenge; to participate you must simply wear an outfit inspired by the 2010 Fall trends using only what you already own.
I had been planning on wearing this fur trimmed vest, and after I spent 20 minutes digging it out from the back of the closet where my winter clothes are still packed away, I decided I didn't like it with the skirt.
Anyway, this look utilizes many of the Fall trends; a lace top in a jewel tone paired with a longer skirt. And both these items were anxious to be worn again, as I've only worn them once each.
The shoes are on their first outing, they were won in a giveaway from Astamundi!
This necklace was made by my friend Klara, and if you like it, you should definitely check out her shop -- her jewelry is so gorgeous!
At Lorena's Every Day Wear, she is spending this week taking a look at labels and seeing where all her clothes are being made. She's also looking at makeup, food, and well, everything -- But I've just analyzed my outfit for you here:
Lace Top TJMaxx - Black Cammi TJMaxx - Printed Skirt Kohls - Shoes Gabriella Rocha - Necklace Klara Design Jewelry - Belt Nine West
I don't forget when people tag me, but sometimes it just takes me a long time to remember.
I have a few I've been meaning to do.
I got the Versatile Blogger award from The Pink Boudior, Thanks Monica!
I got this set of questions from The Antique Pearl
1.) why did you start blogging?
To have a creative outlet and to help inspire me.
2.) do you prefer spring/summer or autumn/winter?
Definitely summer, I love the warm weather!!!
3.) what do you notice first: smokey eye make-up or bright lips?
I'm really fond of bright lips, they are simple, but make a big impression.
4.) who are your style icons?
Any woman who can get dressed everyday and have an understated fabulousness no matter what.
5.) describe your personality in three words?
Classic Meets Quirky
6.) if you had to leave the house with only one item of make-up what would it be?
7.) Which era do you think influenced fashion the most?
It's tough to say, but I feel the 60's did.
8.) what beauty product do you always repurchase?
I don't really have one favorite, I like to try new things when I run out!
I got a tag from Style En Mi Opinion and I have to list ten things I love:
Cute shoes that don't hurt your feet
My dog Chloe
Really big hard drives, like several terabytes
Extra hot lattés
Thick, glossy magazines
