Crinoline skirt. Zara shirt. Hard Couture bra. Giuseppe Zanotti wedges. La Mer watch.

I honestly think I need more versions of a poofy skirt that begs to be worn by taking up 5% of my closet. Which is just an obnoxious amount for just a skirt. Wearing it with other things that I wear too much, like this darling, DIY bandeau bra that I borrowed from Kristine, never gave back, and wear it under everything for a pop of print.

The rest of my day was usual sans watching the highly anticipated Toy Story 3, but I think I'll wait a few weeks rather than testing my luck to find a seat in a packed theater... and hearing kids cry.. and listening to people eat popcorn all around me then regretting not buying any... and now its too late because the previews are starting and that's my favorite part... it's overwhelming me thinking about it.

  14. such a cute outfit, suprisingly the tutu skirt matches well with the denim shirt!!!!

    read me at:


  15. The skirt is so fun. I distinctly remember wanting something quite similar to this for the majority of my childhood. Maybe I can give myself a dose of 15 years later wish-fulfillment.

    Also, Toy Story 3 was awesome! I saw it on Friday (SATC 2 was still sold out - WTF?!). You'll laugh, you'll cry (and, in my case you may get a little nauseous from the 3-D)!

  16. i like this combo and definitely want to know more about that diy bandeau...would your friend lend you a tutorial also?

  17. Love the outfit.

  18. I am obsessed with your skirt! And I love the jean shirt and belt with it! I'm now on the lookout for a tulle skirt!

    Check out my blog:

  36. Wow love this look! you have great style!

  54. This is such an amazing outfit. I don't know how you make things look so effortless. This outfit reminds me of a Sex and the City outfit [that or maybe it's because it has become my new guilty pleasure watch and I've been replaying the seasons non stop]. But I absolutely love this outfit :]

    Again, "creativity reigns" w/ya, as you seem to bestow a "touch of fairy-tale magic" balanced by practical down-to-earthiness, appeal. Ever the "lovely wondrous dreamer" as well as "cute, stylish feet on the ground," "i'm ev'ry woman...!" :)
