March 07, 2012

Top: Nordstrom
Jacket: (thrifted) ann taylor LOFT
Belt: H&M
Oxfords: No Rest For Bridget (Orange County)
Socks: Kohls
Knit Scarf: Forever 21

Bag: Apt. 9 for Kohls ($9!)

Remember my last outfit post when I went talked about outfits I'm most comfortable, confident, and happy in? Yeah, this is one of them. I crafted it without any inspiration from other blogs or pinterest. Something I like to take advantage of in order to maximize the versatility of a piece is layering. This is actually a dress from H&M, but I wore it as a skirt. However the skirt is actually too short for my taste and I layered another black skirt underneath to make it appear longer! What's that? You can't tell? Good- but it's a nice trick to keep in mind! Skirt extenders do exist, even if they're makeshift ones! 

Also, this jean jacket is from way long ago… but it's one of the first pieces of clothing that I ever thrifted. You can imagine how proud I was- it cost me a whole $4. What was your first thrift find?! Do you still wear it?!

As always, thank you for reading!

  20. You look adorable! Especially with the bow and the thigh-high socks. :)

    I do dress layering as well! :) When I feel my dress is too short, I wear a miniskirt underneath. You don't necessarily see it, but I can lift my arm or reach up without showing too much of my thigh! :)

    Oh, and I love love love your scarf!

    Oh, and I'm a new follower. :)
