OKAY WO W! It has been a reallyyyyy long time since I last posted anything! That is probably because I am living my dream in the great and darling New York City. The city I have wanted since I was 15 years old is finally the city I call my (albeit temporary) home.
However, these blog photos (taken by my dear sister Madi of course, oh HEY Mad) were taken before I jetted off to the big apple. The idea being I would post them as soon as I arrived to show employers my fashion capabilities. Yet, NYC is the city of distractions and alas I never found myself getting round to do it. Until now. As I wait for my cherub nannying kids to wake from their afternoon nap.
Anyway the OUTFIT! So I have a total obsession with matching sets. I love the old school, girly nature of matchy matchy sets. Matching prints can be whimsical or bold or powerful or sweet. But no matter what the aesthetic in a matching set you always feel a sense of fashion completion.
This top and skirt however were not actually part of a matching set. Shock horror! I know. The top is LifeWithBird and the skirt is a random boutique label from an online store, Princess Polly. Thus, it came as the most lovely of lovely surprises when I realised after having both items in my wardrobe for months that they could in fact come together as a set!
A fashion revaluation if ever there were one! On such a small fashion budget, one has to take their styling success where they can :p
Styling is about using your imagination and putting pieces together that may not have been intended to be so. And in the process creating pure fashion magic.
