new skirt take 1

Friday, July 6

   I broke my shopping fast last weekend, just to get a few pieces to update my wardrobe. I had been dying for a pleated/tutu-esque skirt forEVER. Which was appropriate, because I walked into Forever 21...got hit with a giant wave of "Forever 21xiety" (I am a doctor. Does this happen to anyone else? Too many things! I can't possibly look at them all!) but then I saw this skirt. Didn't really look at anything else, but a successful trip nonetheless.
    I've been reading other blogs to inspire me to use what I already have in my wardrobe instead of just buying new stuff. Of course, part of that is investing in a few key pieces...what I needed was a statement necklace. I saw this beauty (also at F21) and actually said "That's the one." (At the risk of sounding incredibly shallow and dramatic...sorry, my life is more entertaining to me this way).
   I thoroughly enjoyed wearing this outfit. It was actually comfortable and classy (win. WIN.) and felt the tiniest bit flapper-esque with the t-strap heels and pleats. Side-note: I will wear any t-strap shoe that has ever been made. I've been looking at Seychelles and absolutey drooling.

Priya, you are too cute for words! This is a great outfit and I'm addicted to your hair. Also, got the postcard! yeah! I had no idea about the Something Corporate thing - they've been my secret favourite band since 4th grade (:

Oh Priya, I think twin souls is absolutely right. Pleats, mint green statement necklace, and t-straps? I'm a little bit in love with you. I know exactly what you mean about F21- it's impossible to go in there without feeling instantly overwhelmed, but I always just KNOW I'll walk out with something. So tragic, right?

Oh man, good luck! If you have to break down, try keeping it small like an accessory. That's only kinda cheating!
