With or Without you


Tie Blouse: my mom
Harem/Johdpurs: Polka Dot boutique
Mini Doctor bag: my mom
Black wedges: F21

a simple but, i believe, very chic outfit. i just bought these pants and i'm IN LOVE. the boutique that i bought it from sells clothes imported from korea, and while some pieces may be... let's say "FOB-by," the rest are pretty wonderful! they had these pants in different cuts and lengths and colors (a brownish.. ALMOST nude color--if it was nude i would have instantly bought it over black). the cut and fit and overall silhouette is beautiful. although i got some pretty weird stares this entire day, i'm glad to say it was so comfortable and it made me feel like myself at school... where everyone is basically the same.
dressing up everyday for school is my new 365 challenge! -- it's part of my style development. this outfit has already made me feel more mature than i was, say, last school year.

anyways, thanks for reading, i love ALL of you, my lovely readers! <3

Jess said...

the bag is kind of hermes kelly-y, but it's a bit edgier like Proenza Schouler.
and i wish i had the will to dress up everyday for school. just too tired to care sometimes.

fabulous pants! I love them so much. I have similar ones from American Apparel :). And fob is the best way to go for sure ;). The Korean fashion scene is definitely an inspiration

crazy pig said...

Black&white is classic... great on you! ♥ You look very pretty :)

emily said...

minimalism at its best! clean, fresh, and fashion forward. you pull those pants off so well, for some reason i look odd in that style.
thanks for voting for my shoe for the jeffrey campbell contest! i love your design as well, i actually like it way better than regular foxy platform :)

Abimarvel said...
