Laced in Romance
I love weird color combinations especially when they can be referenced to fruit. Watermelon pink and cantaloupe orange, raspberry red and avocado green, and in this case, lime green and plum purple. I’ve had this Prada blouse for awhile now (found it hidden in a sale rack at my favorite consignment store, INA) and while it goes with pretty much everything, I knew I found it’s match when I saw this skirt at Topshop. Like Juliet and Romeo these secondary, non-matching colors found themselves to be a perfect fit, interlaced in romance, emphasis on the lace. For you see, normally I wouldn’t go for a purple pleated skirt with lace detailing (hello girly!), but knowing this lace trimmed blouse was sitting in my closet waiting for true love, I just couldn’t leave the skirt behind. Just call me the OkCupid of clothing romance, for few things give me more satisfaction than finding two pieces that were meant to be together.
As for news in my romantic life:
