Birds of a Feather


One of the things I love about blogging & reading other fashion blogs is the courage it's given me to try new things with my wardrobe.  I find myself taking more chances & experimenting with trends that I never would have before.  This feather-embellished blouse is a perfect example - something about the color & the detail made me want to give it a chance, even if the feathers are a little outside the realm of what I'd normally wear.   





What I'm wearing:
Madison Marcus blouse (purchased on clearance at Last Call by Neiman Marcus), Gap trousers (here), Aldo heels (last seen here), Forever 21 necklace (here), Vintage bag, Forever 21 & Banana Republic bracelets, Nails: Essie Carry On (here)

* I am guest posting today for Jamie at Work Your Closet - pop on over to her site and see how I recreated one of my favorite Olivia Palermo looks!

You are so darn cute! : ) I have a request - it is getting scarf season over here and I would like to learn some ways to tie scarfs. My mom (literally) chased someone down in Target a couple winters ago to have her teach her how to tie a scarf like she was wearing. Thank You!

My sister and I were totally being you a couple weekends ago on our shopping trip! So if your ears were ringing terribly bad - it was us and I apologize but we scored some awesome deals and my sister kept yelling "that is so ppf! you have to get it!" LOL!

So pretty and elegant. Feathers can either be a "Do" or a "Don't," and to me you do it perfectly!

Blogs are my biggest source of inspiration! I would have never tried mixing patterns if it wasn't for blogs, I think.

I am in love with that shirt and it looks so good on you!
