Vintage Sunglasses, H&M Top, Forever 21 Bib Necklace, Scout Skirt, Miu Miu Pumps, Vintage Clutch
Despite my best efforts, I can’t shake my obsession for tulip skirts. They’re undeniably fun and flirty and offer just the right amount of volume without appearing overdone. I was immediately drawn to this one (from the hip site I Don’t Like Mondays) for its sweet poppy color and deep set pockets. As for my necklace, don’t blame me if you missed the boat since they’re now sold out (I told you about it here) and it’s still the best $13.80 I’ve ever spent.

Don’t you love when you find a designer piece that simply needs to make its way into your closet only to realize there’s a much more affordable option at hand? Elizabeth and James’ Draped Skirt first caught my attention for its wonderfully slinky fabric and waist-cinching contrast band. It was only until several weeks later that I came across Forever 21′s Elastic Band Knit Skirt and knew that the similarities were too great to pass up.
What’s your take – is this a crave or save situation?

Loeffler Randall Dress, Forever 21 Belt, Urban Outfitters Cuff, Cynthia Vincent Wedges
As a wonderful belated birthday present, I was delighted when this Loeffler Randall dress appeared in my mailbox courtesy of Alison from 25 Park. The proportions are so lovely with its wide, boxy sleeves and I simply love the cut out detailing on the decolletage. Turns out, they’re the perfect complement to my newest purchase from Gilt Groupe. As documented multiples times on my blog, I’ve been after these Cynthia Vincent Luella wedges for quite some time. Luckily, I scored a pair in brown and black, for less than the price of a single pair. If you’re still without a Gilt membership, feel free to hit me up in the comment section!
