I guess the 30s didn’t resonate with me as much as the 20s did.
Because I feel that my rendition of this decade is a lot less derivative than my attempts at the previous one. Today’s outfit in particular looks exceedingly modern, doesn’t it? This is what happens when you don’t allow yourself carte blanche on eBay and shop your closet instead. And this is also what happens when you choose shocking pink as the 30s fashion upon which to base your outfit.
I’d worn this top already but it was the only shocking pink item I’ve got so I was stuck with it. The novelty junkie in me needed to style it completely differently from before which required some serious thought. The breakthrough came when I realized this floral blazer had bits of pink in it. It’s another impulse buy from seasons ago that never saw the light of day, and it’s been slated for the sale/cull pile more times than I can remember. (Both KS #1 and 2 actually purchased this blazer because of me and have probably worn it a heckuva lot more times than I.)
Anyhow, I do so love an unexpected pairing. The old me would picked out the blues or the blacks in the blazer and coordinated accordingly, but new me decided the pink was the best choice for showcasing. Throw in a sassy cobalt skater skirt and some sparkly silver shoes and I’ve got a winning ensemble on my hands, if I do say so meself.
Vanessa @ Nessbow said a while back that an outfit needn’t be fancy to be considered fancy; that sometimes, it’s the feeling an outfit gives you that matters. And boy, do I feel fancy in this ensemble.
It must be the TARDIS blue.
