Be sure to wear some flowers in your hair

(tank- Olive Olivia, trousers-Vince, sweater-h&m, socks and lace bralette- courtesy of American Apparel, shoes-Aldo, belt, clutch and necklace-vintage, watch- courtesy of Modcloth ring- LowLuv X Erin Wasson)
I've been having a grand old time shopping lately. The more I tell myself no, the more I seem to shop. Today I spent way over my intended amount at the ShopSocial event for Chictopia and Crossroads Trading co. I did get a few gems, mainly in the form of a men's sweater and button down, and of course a turquoise fold over Marc by Marc Jacobs clutch.
This is what I wore to the event. I decided to go for a slouchy menswear inspired look.
I added the green socks for a jolt of color and the lace bralette for a touch of sex. I decided to do an 80's side sweep with my hair, it seemed like a good idea at the time and I'm sort of loving it now.

I was going to go to that event but I didn't have anyone to go with. I also opted against it because I didn't want to ride BART solo late at night. I hope I can go to the next event. Did you have fun?

Those shoes are to die for!

And I love that shield ring - killer!

I love those shoes. I can't decide if I want to get those or the red pair that Jessica Stam is wearing in the new Aldo campaign.

I love the contrast with the socks and the overall look!!
This clutch is gorgeous!!

HOT! I say you do more of the side swept - it looks sexy. It looks like a super comfy outfit - I could probably live in that tank & cardigan combo.

Classy! I'm big on slouchy menswear inspired looks, as well. Paradoxically, I find them the most feminine...

Hi,
I have recently (2 weeks ago: and I have already looked at a lot of your achives)discovered your blog via other blogs, and I really love your romantic atmosphere, and apparently, you seem to use a lot of smooth and soft textiles, and it seems to be so comfortable! I love it!
In your photos, you create a kind of sweetie atmosphere, and it seems to be so wonderful! Love it!
PS: I have put your blog adress in the links of mine which is new (I think there is still some problems to display the articles...) if it doesn't bother you, of course!
Bye
Take care!

Love the layers, love everything except the "bralette." You're already sexy enough, this makes you look sloppy and you are WAY too beautiful to allow that impression. This is not critisism, this is a comment from a professional. I love your blog, and I adore the way you present everything. xx's Marsha
