An Outfit (Deconstructed) ...


Remember when I said I wasn't a ruffle girl (or something to that effect)?

We'll I was delusional, as a quick scan of my archives revealed that out of the nine total "outfits deconstructed" I've posted thus far, six of them involved ruffles of some sort (at the hem, on the sleeve, at the bodice).

That's like a 2/3 rate of return on ruffles. Clearly I don't know myself very well...

So I'm not going to say anything on this post about how I rarely wear color and that I'm more of a neutrals/black clothes gal and that this blue is a stretch for me, because saying that might result in a parade of Punky Brewester-esque outfit posts sporting me in mis-matched rainbow striped socks.



Oh and I peeked in my closet last night and counted four (!) tops all in this exact same shade of cobalt blue... So it's settled, apparently I'm a blue girl and a ruffle girl.

After all, admission is the first step.


The Details:

  • Blue/Ruffled Tunic -- Anthropologie
  • Necklace -- Anthropologie
  • Bracelet -- Thrifted
  • Jeans -- The Gap
  • Shoes -- Givenchy

I'm definitely a ruffle girl. I like pairing ruffles with something less feminine (like jeans or a military inspired piece.) Great look. Love the blue and can I borrow those shoes? =)

Lovely! I enjoy an architectural feel to my ruffles, can't get enough of them.
Must now add ankle length jeans with zippers to my fall shopping list.

stunning. I am tempted to be a copycat and buy that exact top and necklace. Except I will have to substitute G shoes with Target ones..I've just realised why you have head cut off in your photos, you are taking photos into a mirror...(quick as a whippet)
