angora cropped cardigan french connection, top second handed from aunt ann taylor, high waist jeans bdg, wedges h&m, purse from the 60's vintage

I was feeling a bit romantic today knowing that I will finally see my boyfriend tonight. During the week he would be 45miles away from me, but the weekends is our time and we're quiet adventurous together. On saturday there will be a vintage expo in Santa Monica that I'm dying to check out. Then later in the evening there will be a party at my place hosted by my roommate. Being a fashion designer that he is, he's doing a little fashion show for our guests and we'll be giving out prizes for the best dressed later in the evening. I'm super excited to see my friends and mingle with everyone.

Do any of you have a relative that's into fashion as much as you do? My aunt bought this top and never wore it because it didn't fit her so she passed it down to me..along other things she was forcing me to take. A lot of times, I don't agree with her fashion taste because her style is completely different from mine, but this top inspired me so I didn't argue with her and gladly took it. The cardigan was such a steal because I got it for less than $50 at French Connection this one time. It's made of rabbit hair/angora and nylon..super romantic and super soft. It's just too bad the only size they had left in the store was a med/lrg, I just couldn't pass up the exaggerated ruffle sleeves.

By the way, that Monroe photo in the back isn't mine...it's my roommates. I placed it there for awhile because we were running out of space in the living room due to his fashion projects, but it's going to be painted over in black/gold for the party. Monroe isn't me at all, I'm more of an Audrey Hepburn fan. :)

those are lovely ruffles. I saw some similar ruffled sleeved shirt at F21, but hesitated. Looks great on you!

the french connection cardigan IS such a steal -- and it looks vintage to boot! in a way, the larger size works for you because it exaggerates the ruffles even more. (ruffles = love in my book. :)

thanks for the comment on my blog! xoxo
