Pretty Pretty Princess

Satin blouse, Express. Velvet skirt, Herman Geist (thrifted and shortened). Sash, Mike’s USNA necktie. Brooch, swapped. Slingbacks, Linea Paolo.


I felt a little too “pretty pretty princess” in this ensemble. I think the rhinestone buttons, glittery brooch, shiny shirt, and bell-shaped skirt were a bit much all together.

Maybe they were a bit too much, but I like it a lot!

kiran said...

it was too much, but i like it anyway (christmas theme and all)! its probably perfect for a stepford wife hosting a christmas party, or baking christmas cookies!

I don't think it's too much at all. That skirt is one of my favorite pieces of yours.

Love your outfit, but think you could use a deeper shoe to "ground" all the color up top.

Jody said...

I really like this. In fact, I think this is my favorite way you've worn that skirt. I love the color of that top.

I agree with Jody. I was just popping in to say that I think this is my favorite way I've seen this skirt. I think the top balances it nicely, and the tie gives it structure.

It IS pretty. The shirt and skirt are great together (and, like others have said, I think this is my favorite way you've worn the skirt). Maybe next time try accessories that are less, uh... pretty.

This outfit is so chic! I think the shoes maybe should have been a different color... they just kind of blend. I want a skirt like this one!

This is an adorable outfit! I can see how it might be a bit too much...but I'm loving the casual color coordination.

Ronise said...

I think you look very cute with that outfit.

Sheila said...

I really like this! No earrings?

I just noticed there's another Sheila.
