Valentine's outfit Revealed!

Happy Valentine's day, bloggies!!

The outfit's really not all that exciting, because it's basically an outfit I've posted before with a few tweaks. Oh well... I am rather excited about wearing this skirt, though, because you Fetching Fashions Frequenters will remember how much I loved this upon spotting it a month or so back. Sigh.

Just can't decide where to wear the socks... higher? lower? I just adjusted them all night. Gotta love thigh-highs...
Top: Free People lace top
Skirt: Anthro's From Monet Skirt
Socks: from Nordies 
Shoes: the beloved Steve Madden Tristanos
Necklace: Baker's mixed metals chain necklace

I'm not sure about this whole pairing-- I couldn't quite decide if I looked trampy or feminine. (I think the socks were what made that a question.) But what's done is done, and what's fashion without risks? hehe... and as you can tell, I decided against buying something new. I really have too many unworn dressy items in my closet to get a whole new outfit that will sit in the closet until another special occasion. A good decision on my part (you know, to make those lots of bad decisions a little less problematic).


  1. I like the socks high (like the 2nd photo). I think the outfit is great. I love the skirt. Happy Valentines Day!

  2. I love this outfit! You've actually inspired me for my V-day outfit which I'm in midst of planning right now. :)

  3. I think I like the socks slouchy. Super cute outfit though. You should rock a high ponytail and some bright lippystick next time. (unsolicited feedback) Love it though :)

  4. Thank you! and it's never unsolicited-- that's what this whole thing is about! good ideas, lady. :)

  5. i think the outfit is awesome! the socks look great either way. and i know what you mean about not buying new things before wearing what you have...i currently have this problem, lol. happy v day!

  6. Romantic and feminine... lovely ensemble.

  7. I love this outfit! You definitely can pull it off either way. Swing over to my blog, I left you a present :)
