Milky Way

What's with the shitty lighting and chopped-off feet, you ask? Well, the 'good' camera was over at Mark's place, and I had to make due with my point-and-shoot on the self timer. Because of the stacks of moving boxes everywhere, this was the furthest away that I could set up the camera. Tomorrow's photos were shot this way as well, but fear not, I've got the SLR back now and the better photos will resume in a couple days.

This top doesn't get a lot of wear, and I'm not entirely sure why. I think by itself it just looks a bit boring for my eye. But I liked the way that it added some black to this outfit without looking too harsh against the soft bubblegum pink. The pattern of the top has sort of a milky way pattern that works well with the small studs on the boots.

Cardigan: American Eagle (a gift from my sis)
Top: Some random store in Krakow
Belt: another gift from my sis
Skirt: Lemon Twist
Tights: MP
Boots: All Black

I find it so funny that you own something from american apparel, so NOT where I picture you shopping. Anyway, I love the cardigan and it looks great with the skirt and top and tights too!

I love the burgundy and pink together (wow, seems like everyone in the blogosphere wore some form of dark red/pinky tones today!).

I have a hard time with tops like that. They tend to languish in my drawer and then I swap them away to friends. I don't know what it is.

You look great even without the fancy camera. I dig the colors of this outfit. I am always drawn to (in stores) but often don't buy embellished tops. Is that because they are so distinctive?
Good luck with the packing and moving prep!

Aw, sounds like we're going to miss each other! We're busy on the Friday and Saturday, unfortunately. But I so appreciate your offer! Best of luck with the move - I hope it goes really well.

Maroon and bubblegum pink - who knew they'd look so fantastic together?

Maroon and pink. Fabulous. I don't comment much but you always inspire me to think differently.

What an exciting outfit! And thanks for confirming my suspicions re: the quality of one's blog camera. Even with the shite camera, you manage to make things clearer than I've done thus far.

I love the burgundy and pink together! The slim belt really pulls it together. And I love the details in this look - the sequins on the cardi and the print on the top and the stripes in your tights. Wonderful look!
