I love the appeal of wearing new clothes but sometimes there's just as much appeal as bringing a closet orphan back to life! I dug wayyyy deep into my closet to find the item that I had worn the least and came up with this top that had been left hanging for over 3 years and this skirt that hadn't been worn in almost a year.  The outfit ended up being a little bit of pattern mixing and a lot of floral overload.  But I love floral, so can you blame me?  :)

And since I received such encouraging feedback from my last makeup look, I'm back again with my look for today!  I almost always focus on the eyes for my makeup and today I chose a purple-taupe combination with a subtle hint of brownish red.  Can I just say how I LOVE the vibrancy of pigments?

Sometimes it gets a bit dangerous being a petite and wearing a bright printed (especially pink!) top, which has the potential to make us look like tweenagers. However, you did an excellent job making this cute top look polished  and appropriate!! It inspires me to reconsider getting rid of my "youthful" clothing. :)

Fun idea!! It is nice giving old clothes some love!  :)

Your makeup looks great! I am seeking out a new mascara.  How do you like that Maybelline One by One? 

Sandy a la Mode said... [Reply]

it's always fun digging up clothes you haven't worn in awhile!! :)

Absolutely lovely.  It may be the later stages of Summer, but it's still Spring as far as I'm concerned because you're a petite flower whose beauty is in full bloom- just like a rose.  Lovely outfit from top to bottom!  :)

The Maybelline mascara is surprisingly good actually! It really lengthens and slightly volumizes without clumping. And I can layer on 2 coats without it looking like spider legs too. I use it over the Shiseido Mascara Base Primer and it's wonderful!

Something about your hair and this top makes you look very Asian today, hehe (it's not a bad thing!) I love seeing bloggers mix the old with the new, and old with the old! Keep these coming!

Polka Princess said... [Reply]

I think you're becoming quite a pro at print mixing! And yes, there's no such thing as too much florals!! :)

Kileen said... [Reply]

haha, i thought the same thing about the top. i think the pink and black floral design kinda reminds me of a qipao...

Toni said... [Reply]

Omg you use the most beautiful accessories! I love the flowery necklaces and that thin twisted brown belt. You've inspired me... I want to go shopping right now! Your pictures are gorgeous. I have a hard time finding outfits for work. I work at a PR firm but I'm still only 20 so I don't want to look too old, even though I want to look professional. Using color really helps. These are some great ideas!

Kileen said... [Reply]

i totally agree that you don't have to look old while dressing professionally! finding nice fitted items that flatter your body will go a long way, as will adding punches of color to your outfit! good luck. :)

Rebecca Hammond said... [Reply]

What a great revival top! Love the pattern mixing. You look darling.

Katherine said... [Reply]

Beautiful look on you, especially with the lovely skirt! I love reviving old closet items :)

Dana Bradshaw said... [Reply]

I love that! I'm into a pink phase right now, all the way and I think that is perfect. You're wearing those sleeves in 100 degree weather? You are brave! Also, can I just mention that your photographs are beautiful.

Kileen said... [Reply]

Thank you! It's always freezing in my office so I always have a cardi handy. :)
