Love for Sale

Skirt?  Solitaire (similar here or longer hem hereSweater? Old Navy (here) Shoes? Dumond Blazer? Banana Republic, thrifted Clutch? Saks, Winners Bracelets? Thrifted and a booth at The Ex
A few years ago there was this heavy lace skirt (worn here by Monkeyface) that was making its way around fashion blogs like the tomcat in my neighbourhood. I loved it but never bought it and it has been on my mind since. It turns out, thanks to highschool, I am an expert at unrequited love...
Then when I was at Winners a few weeks ago, I saw a similar skirt and all my feelings of love came rushing back over me. And so I bought the skirt. Now I know that love can be bought and it comes in the form of a pretty lace skirt. This knowledge could have made my highschool years so much less complicated and angsty...

Lace, pink, and camel....I love it!! There is nothing like the feeling of finding a piece of clothing that you may have wanted but passed on!

briannelee said...

So pretty! I love it with the pink.

yes but without angst there would be no alanis morissette. and we all know that the world needs alanis. and lace skirts.

That skirt is really really pretty! I have been searching the world high and low for one and have never found one in my size or alterable. bleh! x

Elissa said...

I agree with Natasha - this too I one of my favorite outfits on you. I never would have thought to pair a bold striped top with that skirt, but it looks amazing.

That skirt is heavenly enough to be worn by an elf named Delilah. Oh my crochet!

LOL you always crack me up Jentine! I LOVE this outfit on you! The lace skirt was worth the wait. You look great! (<----did you know that I am a master of poetry?)

By the way, I have been meaning to email you inquiring about your "She Thrifted" series. How would a girl be able to get in on that action? I ask because nearly everything that I wear/own is thrifted and I love that series you do and nearly all the girls that you feature (like Sarah of last week). Any info would be appreciated! Thanks!

I freaking love that skirt. I'm super jel. You're lucky you live in Canada - otherwise I'd come steal it from your house. Armed.

I love how delicate the bottom of the skirt is and the unexpected color combo on the sweater!

Woah, Monkeyface flashback, hahaha. I can't tell you how much I look forward to wearing that skirt every year during the six days of nice spring weather we get here. I think I may have to buy into my love for your striped sweater now to go with it..

Terri said...

Love that sweater! The colors look so great on you. Love that clutch!

Looooove this! Absolute love!

I almost bought this skirt at Winners on the weekend! I'm so jealous now that I have to go back for it! I did, however, buy some red waxed-denim jeggings by Calvin Klein, though. I lost my head and put the skirt down. Drat~!

I loe that skirt on you - very flattering and such a versatile piece. And lady, you're rocking those heels!

Based on a large sociological experiment I conducted (I was the only participant) I have determined that high school and angst are inseparable. Unrequited love is life :) haha

loving this skirt and the entire look. It's a bit like that lace skirt from target that has been rummaging around blogs like Kendi for at least one summer and I wanted it so badly. This one is even prettier. Maybe one day I am as lucky at TKMaxx!
