Lookbook: Wrapping Up the Lace

1/14/2013

If you're looking for a post about the Golden Globes, then you've come to the wrong place. I do have a photo of my favorite dress of the night, and I did witness that confusing yet interesting coming out speech by Jodie Foster, but this post is all about my weekend look.| Lipstick: The Empire Lilacs | Gifted Sheinside wrap cardigan | Sole Mio Tobi top | Go Jane lace pants | Christian Siriano pumps | Jason Wu satchel |I just realized that my 2012 Year in Review post was actually my 500th blog post on the Muse. Sorry I didn't really pay that much attention to that--it's been a super busy week to start the new year. But with that said, happy 500th blog post to me! And I've been blogging for about 4 years now so I'll throw that in there too. Confession: I started blogging back in 2008, then stopped, then returned to it some time in 2009 before making it routine in 2010. So long story short, I don't know when I "officially" started Oh to Be a Muse, but I do know that this was one of my first posts back in February 2009 (most of my other initial posts have since been deleted for being terrible).

What do you think of this look?

  32. Loved that peak into Vintage Muse. ;) We've been blogging for the same amount of time! I started a now-scratched cynical journalist blog back in '08 and then started IKR around V-Day 2009. When did we become friends? I honestly don't even remember when or how we found each other. I know it's been YEARS though.

  33. I didn't watch the GG, so I didn't know that Jodie Foster came out. HUH! And great look you got. Like the sexy cut outs paired with the more conservative upper half.
