Top: Charlotte Russe
Skirt: Dorothy Perkins
Hat: Rue 21
I focused this whole outfit around my top. When I fist saw this shirt in the store I literally said out loud "OMG, i HAVE to have it." It was also on the clearance rack, which was an added bonus. I said to myself that I was only buying one thing when I walked in the store, collected a handful of things and narrowed it down to just 2. A dress and the top pictured. It's a maroon color and twisted in the front. The twist is what made me love the shirt so much, without it I wouldn't have looked twice. I don't need to walk out of a mall or store with bags and bags of clothes. Just getting one thing that I love will make me the happiest woman in the world.
The skirt I'm wearing was once a favorite of mines. I don't wear it often because I ruined it. It had gold snakeskin detailing all over it. Somehow I spilled something on it that took off all snakeskin except for a little bit on the back. So I decided to twist the skirt around and wear it backwards. It sounds funny, but it actually worked. I loved wearing the gold zipper in the front, and it showed perfect from where my shirt twisted. My advice is to play around with your clothing, turn stuff backwards, wear it inside out! Especially when you feel like you don't have anything to wear.
The shoes I'm wearing are some cute little bootie/heels... perfect for fall/winter! And of course I can't forget to mention my favorite hat which helped to pull the whole look together. All accessories were BORROWED, from my friend and mother. (Thanks guys lol) I used gold as an accent color again because it just goes with almost anything and looks beautiful next to the maroon
