OOTD: High-Waisted Hearts 5/24/10

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!

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.

Oooh, that's a really cute skirt! I really want one like that, especially since you can wear it in so many different outfits.

That top was only three pounds?? Wow! Amazing deal.

Ahh I love how the top has a heart-shaped back.

Wearing a belt to the side is really chic. You look fabulous in all these photos!

You look fantastic in that high waisted pencil skirt with the wide belt and the "Open Your Heart" polka dot top. Love Madonna. You are so cute in that last photo! Love the big smile.

Syhem said...

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!
