Top: Banana Republic, Skirt: 213, Belt: Anthropologie, Shoes: Miu Miu, Necklace: LOFT
There is something unexpected about mixing something western, which seems to have a masculine undertone, with something really feminine like tulle and glitter. It keeps the outfit from looking overly saccharine.
The inspiration du jour: A little Carrie Bradshaw, a whole lot D&G Spring '10, and a hint of saloon. This reminds me of that scene in The Devil Wears Prada where Andy can't see the difference between the two identical belts during the run through and Stanley Tucci notes: "Well, you know me.. Give me a full ballerina skirt and a hint of saloon and I'm on board" Exactly.
Rachel from That's Chic also did an outfit like this HERE. Always fun to see how other bloggers interpret things!
