Velvet Blazer and Ruffles

I haven’t worn this asymmetrical skirt in years. I wore this velvet blazer once this past spring, but it hasn’t seen the outside of my closet for a while. I’m sticking with my resolution to wear all the things in my closet, so I paired these two neglected items and made a new outfit.

Tank: Target
Blazer: Doki-Geki
Skirt: Broadway Boutique
Shoes: John Fluevog
Purse: Thrifted

I went out for brunch with Mr. Jean of all Trades and I liked being put-together and comfortable. I have this jacket in black and the skirt in burgundy, so perhaps you’ll see a very similar outfit in different colors soon.

And for the first time I’m actually organized enough to participate in Sophistique Noir’s Monthly theme. This month is rings. You can’t see my new ring in the photo, so here it is up close.

And here it is on my hand.

Ring: Crazy Harry’s
Polish: Earthly Delights

I realize that I’m lousy at applying nail polish and even lousier at being a hand model. If I keep my hands moving, the manicure doesn’t look bad, but up close, well, it’s a bit sloppy. Nevertheless, I like my ring. It has an art deco feel to it. I bought it at a market in Fort Lauderdale last week.

Denim Shorts with Tights

I like the shorts-and-tights look. It’s a nice way to wear cute shorts without accidentally mooning everyone.

I broke a lot of rules with this outfit, but I had a lot of fun putting it together. Rules be damned!

I’m very lucky to have such cool and crafty friends. No sooner than I had wandered out in public did I get compliments on both the button ring and monkey head necklace. Thanks guys!
