This week is brought to you by: “a striped shirt, ponte pants, pumps, a spring jacket, and a tassel necklace”.
For your viewing pleasure, I give you: a striped shirt.
The extra bits: Huh. So I guess it’s feast or famine for me with the Blogging Besties challenge. Whereas I hit six out of seven elements last week, this week I barely managed one.
What made this week difficult? After all, it’s not as if I don’t have all of the items listed. But I guess I was just having a difficult time envisioning them all together on me. Also, I wanted to participate in Anne’s Fresh Fruits linkup, but this skirt didn’t want to play nice with the others.
I don’t blame it, though. It’s pretty much a showstopper on its own. But would you kill me if I told you I ended up Mad Hunting it on eBay? Yep, I caved and made a purchase all because of Anne’s prompt, but I’m not blaming her in the least.
“Fruit” is one pattern I don’t have in my closet and have been eyeing for some time. I thought I’d wanted strawberries or cherries, but when an eBay search for “fruit skirt” pulled up this beauty, and when the seller kindly took it off auction and gave it to me for a reasonable Buy It Now price, I knew it deserved a home in my closet. Plus, with all the colors in it, you know it’ll be a versatile piece.
That said, I paired it with the striped shirt as per Blogging Besties prompt, and doing so gives it that juxtaposition I love so much. The stolid stripes are a good ground for the flirty fruit, don’t you think?
Vive le vendredi!
P.S. Whitney, I couldn’t join you in your Create 28 today, but I’ll be back Monday, k?
