The first snow bombarded us and I don't give a poop! I'm going to wear what I want! Down with North Face Jackets! Down with down coats! >< Give me sun, give me chill weather, and give me snow! I will survive your aversion to sun Vancouver! I SWEAR IT. Haha, as I post this the snow has already dissappeared....but that day I was lucky and this time Vancouver gave me both. My sister and I took advantage of the sun and the white background to take some outfit shots.
I feel good wearing this outfit. I feel that it's a nice blend of clean and classy. My favorite part of this outfit is the top. Sheer tops have been popular for some time now and I think many different designers and chain stores have put out their own versions of the sheer button up. I found this particular sheer cream top at Forever 21. Unfortunately I can't quite remember the price, but I do like the fact that it's not just a sheer top, but has some decorative rhinestones here and there. I don't look like a disco-ball, which is a good thing, in this case.
It looks like I have 5 o'clock shadow in this photo.
The best part of this particular creme top is that is doesn't look to hoochie mama, despite its being sheer. I would say that this piece, although I hate to write a cliche, has easily has turned into one of the most versatile in my wardrobe. I can pair it with a nice structured blazer, a feminine skirt, or a pair of jeans. Ranging from casual to classy, I never really expected that I would like this sheer button up top so much.
The red purse at my side is the Christmas/Anniversary gift I received from my lovely boyfriend. He has good taste. =P Although I did cheat a little, I alerted him of a Kate Spade sample sale...over 75% off. I kind of forcibly coerced him in the right direction. >< MAYBE. However in return I got him several sweaters, a belt, and some video-games that he'd been wanting all year...so I say we're pretty even. =P
Another print that I've been seeing a lot of has been the cheetah print. I've always liked cheetah print, but it's been creeping into everything I wear lately. I think that alone, is proof of how surprisingly versatile cheetah print is. I think the general rule of thumb for Cheetah Print is that the colors and print have to be a bit subdued. Bright, flashy, cheetah print probably has its place in the 60's or the extreme showiness of the 80s or 90s. Of course animal print is having a bit of a resurgence now! I hope you're having as much fun as I am of incorporating it into your outfits.
Anyway, thanks for reading. =)
