Apr 24th - Outfit #19 - Rocker Chick

Today's outfit is one of my favourites so far this month:
I'm sure I've done a similar outfit before...let's see...yup, here's a really similar look from 2010.

This shirt (last seen here) is staying in my wardrobe post-capsule; I love ruffles on shirt, but I'm normally way too boobtastic to do them. This shirt just has the right amount.
I adore the skirt (last seen here) and loved wearing it again today.

It's the accessories that make this outfit, I think. I'm wearing a turquoise cami underneath the hot pink shirt, and my purple shoes (last worn here) just seemed to go. The shoes are not the most practical ones I own, but I love them and they don't kill my feet.

I messed with everyone at work with these nylons:
A few people asked if I had tattoos on my legs! Um, no. These nylons are by Voila! and the regular price was $25.99 - I paid $5.99 which is way more reasonable, considering they popped a toe on the way to work. Arg!

Pretty accessories:
Both gifts from L! Such good taste that man has. The silver one is by Fossil, and the other is handmade (it's sterling silver with semi-precious stones). The stone cuff never stays on - it's too big on my wrist and just slides off. Today I decided to just tie it onto my wrist with some black ribbon.

I pulled out more of the purple in the jewelry:
Some vintage earrings, assorted charms and my flaming skulls belt (I'm such a badass, hee). I stole the belt buckle from L's belt.

Off to my WW meeting!

Blouse (Esprit, consignment), skirt (Hemmingway, vintage 80s, consignment), shoes (Friis & Co.), cami (Esprit), belt (consignment), silver bracelet (Fossil), stone cuff (gift from L, handmade).

  1. That leather skirt looks so luxe. The tights are awesome, sorry about the blowout. That's why I stick to cotton tights when I can. Or just suffer barelegs. The nylons do make a cool impression though!

  3. I like this outfit - nothing wrong with wearing similar outfits if you've enjoyed them before :) Love the tights, shame they got a hole in them! Really like your idea to tie the bracelet with a ribbon too, I'll remember that for future use! :)

  6. The color of your blouse highlights your hair and love the color of your shoes. The jewelry and stockings make the outfit shine!

  7. Sheila: Love the colour combo! I like a bit of ruffle on blouses, as I have the opposite problem - no bustline at all! However, we can adjust that little problem with a bra and stuffing!!
    Those stockings/tights are terrific!
    You were right about lilac/cornflower blue with my white hair and fair skin. Got a little t-shirt for summer, but definitely look for more of the colour. Thanks for the suggestion.

  9. Giggling over "boobtastic." Unfortunately, I have never had that problem :P But I love the deep wine color and pretty fabric of your blouse, and as always I'm immediately drawn to your fabo shoes, and all your other lovely details.
