OOTD: High-Waisted Hearts 5/24/10

5/24/2010

In order to not go broke by spending all my hard-earned money on cute accessories, chic outfits, and OMG shoes, I've reinvested in an old skirt. I've come to the realization that I still love this skirt, and so should you.

For one, it's a pencil skirt, and it's perfect for shaping a silhouette. The high-waisted look adds curve and elegance. I paired it with this polka dot top all the way from London. I've mentioned this top before but didn't really feature it. But the back says it best: "Open your heart; I'll make you love me."

...or maybe that was Madonna...



Top: Primark £3
Sunglasses: Michael Kors

Skirt: Wetseal $12 (i think)
headgear: Claires $6

Oh, and I wore this belt but twisted it to the side because I think it looks great this way...and it adds a bit extra to an old skirt.

♥ ♥ ♥
I recommend listening to Madonna's "Open Your Heart" now because it's an awesome song.

Hope everyone has a great week ahead!


p.s.
Smashbox’s Quench Moisture Rich Lip Gloss is only $5 (a $21 value) right at Sephora!—It's a sheer watermelon shade. No promo code necessary.

  26. Many times I look into my closet and struggle to find anything to wear...then I stumble upon something I got sick of wearing and discover that I am falling in love with it again! That's a great feeling especially if you can accessorize using jewelries!

    Your outfit look adorable. One can't never go wrong with black and white!
