La Di Da

Blouse: Salvation Army Skirt: Salvation Army Hat: Swellegant Tights: Nordstroms

The collar of this shirt makes me so happy! I goldenarmed it at salvation army yesterday and could not resist the oversized collar, and the ruffled sleeves just add to my enjoyment. I absolutely never try things on and to my sirprise I tried it on this morning and I fits beautifully. Honestly, if I have my heart set on something I will figure out how to wear it reguardless of size, so trying things on is just a waste of time.

My lovely boyfriend rode his bike all the way to my work today to bring me my abandoned tripod, and instead of using the tripod I suggested he be the photographer. As much as I complain and give him directions when he photographs my outfits, I really do adore the fact that he will indulge my outfit posts long enough to take time out of his day to be my photographer.

God bless your boyfriend! He did a great job as photographer, today. You really turned a dated look into something fresh, Meggs. Wowzah. I love the hitched up (and short skirt) with the belt below the band. The color combo is perf, and i can't believe i like that blouse on you. Those kinds of blouses remind me of church (back in the day) and not of edgy fashion, but dare-i-say-it? You somehow put edge to it.

this outfit is brilliant. i love the way you belted the skirt not quite on the elastic and the way you paired the bright orange skirt with black and white. seriously, you look great and are some kind of fashion genius or something.

Fabulous! I too adore the collar on that shirt, and that along with the skirt are great finds. I love Salvation Army. :)

I can relate to your sizing outlook - I just buy whatever at the thift stores and belt or alter as needed.
