Built around the Bag

Thursday, February 14, 2013


It was so generous of Jess Rizutti to send me this amazing baguette.
As soon as I received it I knew I wanted to build my outfit around it.
Naturally, green was the first color to come to mind and being that this is quite possibly the only green piece in my wardrobe, it was an easy starting point. 
The only other time I wore this skirt on my blog I also wore it with grey.
 I took this dark grey oversized, thrifted vest and layered it over a lighter shade of grey to really highlight all the amazing shades in the bag. 
My grey Brian Atwood boots seemed like a no brainer to finish off the look. 

Jess Rizutti has so many incredible bags it was hard to pick one, but I think I made an excellent choice. 

**You really have to have an eye when you go thrifting. 
This vest is a 14 (I'm a 4) and I had all the buttons removed to give it a more streamlined look.**

OMG I'm so obsessed! I love how you highlighted the green in that bag by wearing the green skirt! Can I call dibs on the skirt & the vest too?? I'm so obsessed with both of these. I need to come and live in your closet...it would be a wonderland for me!

Hello, Neat post. There's an issue along with your website in internet explorer, would test this? IE still is the market leader and a good section of people will omit your magnificent writing because of this problem.

I love this outfit! Great starting point for inspirations as well! The lines you created are great and the fact that you chose all solids make more of a statement than prints for this outfit!! LOVE is what I am trying to say here! hehe
