An Outfit Deconstructed... (Recently Acquired Edition)



If you happen to be keeping up with the things I've acquired this year over on Operation Simplicity, you know that this Ace and Jig v-neck tee is a recent purchase. I'm historically bad about buying something and then letting it hang in my closet a looong time before I actually wear it. It's not a good thing, as I think it indicates that I tend to buy things I'm on the fence about...that I have to marinate on a bit if you will.

My (unscientific) theory is if you buy something you truly love, you want to wear it stat... And in the case of this top, that's what I did. I bought it when Christine and I were setting up for the pop-up shop a couple of weeks ago, and then I wore it that very night to some FNO events. Oh and I've worn it twice since then, so I'm feeling pretty sartorially virtuous on this one.

I love it when that happens.





The Details:

  • Top -- Ace and Jig
  • Jeans -- Banana Republic
  • Necklace -- Vintage
  • Handbag -- Derek Lam
  • Shoes -- Old Navy

Yay, thanks for doing this one. Btw, what size did you go with?

cute! I feel the same way about wearing the new outfit ASAP. I am a bit like a five year old & will wear new shoes out the store (nine times out of ten).

Heather -- you're welcome ;-) I went with a medium...it's a little large on me, but I wanted the longer length.

I'm still bummed that I missed out on those tops when my size was in stock. Boo. It looks great on you, and I love that necklace!

The top is gorgeous! And yeah, I agree with you, you should want to wear new purchases immediately, which is one of the reasons I try never to buy out of season, if it sits around too long I may never develop a close relationship with it, weird as that sounds. I also came to another shopping realization I wrote about here:
