Black and red striped silk oxford: Ann Taylor, black corset pencil skirt: Express, black mary janes: Payless
I've felt a little sloppy the last few days, so I thought I'd dress it up a little today. Also, I noticed I hadn't worn this shirt in almost a year. The problem with it is that I absolutely ADORE it: I paid a pretty penny for it (by my standards) and I love that it's Texas Tech red and black, and its so soft and pretty feeling...and so I find myself "saving" it and thus never wearing it! Enough!
I also adore this skirt. Often times at Express and New York & Co., I refuse to pay full price for anything. I know that within two to three weeks it will be on sale, so why buy it straight off the rack. I did, however, pay the full $70 for this skirt the second I saw it at the Las Vegas Express last year. (The fact that I was up $100 in black jack may have played into that decision.) I'm disappointed in Express now though, because over the last year they've produced a cheaper looking skirt that is the same concept--a corset tie up in the back, but its in bright bold colors like red...and it just looks tacky to me compared to my beloved skirt. So here's a "butt shot" so you can see how cute it is! (The skirt, not the butt. wink)
Crazy hair today!
