Velvet Back

Wednesday, June 13, 2012
Forever 21 hat, $4 (similar); plaid scarf c/o Anytime Scarf; American Apparel t-shirt, $10; thrifted and refashioned velvet skirt, $4 (similar); Old Navy boots; thrifted bag, $3 (similar)

This is an outfit I wore right after we got back from our cruise when I was feeling all I DON'T CARE I'MA DO WHAT I WANT. So I came up with this and I loved wearing it! I thought I was da bomb. Where is that confidence now? I don't know...but I want it back, dangit. Dressing in the morning is becoming a chore again..

P.S. Wearing a black skirt as an everyday piece reminded me of this post from Kristine..

  4. They look like very different boots.....the top of them don't swoop down in the front like the ones you are wearing....which helps elongate your leg. The boots in the link are cut straight across at the top.

  8. Your link for the boots doesn't take me to the actual boots. I just love them and hope you can help me track them down.
