Sweater:Thirfted Blouse: Thrifted Skirt: Vintage Shoes: Chinese Laundry

This is the outfit that I wore to a nice little soiree hosted by Stylit about a week ago. This sweater has turned into one of my favorites, lately, but its snagging on my bracelets like crazy, and is ripping at a frantic pace.

So, last Wednesday, I went to a preview party for Sylit. Stylit is a personal fashion planner for the professional or normal girl that loves to dress up. There's room for seasonal inspirations, personal outfit planning and wishlists! There are little mannequins to draw your outfit ideas on, too. The party was hosted by, stylist, Beth Jones, and there were a whole host of other bloggers there to share in the experience.

I have to say that it was nice to finally meet some other people, in person, that share in the same way of thinking as me. I can also attest to the food/ wine spread being pretty nice, as my boyfriend was the only guy there, and spent most of the night hovering around the cheese, glass of sparkling wine in hand, while the rest of us girls were compiling our inspirations for our books. On top of all that, there was a swag bag, and as a lover of all things free, it was a thrill to see the items put in. A big thank you to QuickSilver, Mars Studio, Posh Paperie, Sweet & Saucy Shop, Oh Yeah Make Me and Quail Studios for hosting the event. I had a great time at the party, and I know that I'll be using my Stylit frequently in the future! 

To get your hands on one of your own be sure to visit Beth over at Beth Jones Style!

Absolutely adore that skirt. I wish I were tall enough to pull off something like that.

MOUSEVOX VINTAGE said...

The texture on your skirt looks amazing and you look as chic as always.

My very favorite jacket is made of loops of fringe and is ALWAYS getting caught on everything and has come apart in so many places. A very high maintenance piece, but I'll never give it up.

such wonderful feminine skirt! absolutely fantastic!

poikadot said...

i totally love your skirt! funny thing is that i see similar skirts in op shops around here all the time but i can never think of ways to wear them so i leave them be. maybe next time i'll buy one and take some inspiration from you (:
with the sweater, maybe you could line the cuffs with some random material, so even if the bracelets catch, it wouldn't ruin the sweater? idk!

the Citizen Rosebud said...

Your way of putting things together is so delightful. For instance I thought I loved the skirt and top mix until I saw the next photo of you and that amazing sweater with the skirt. YES! Silhouette, texture mixing and great fresh take on vintage: you have it hands down. Genius.
