Lace & Pinstripes Inspiration

Over on Chictopia I came across this outfit inspiration from fellow member Danielle_M





And here's my take an an office outfit from last week!

























vest-Old Navy(jacket version here), shirt-Joseph Altuzarra for Target, skirt-Mikkat Market, necklace-J.Crew Factory(similar here), bracelet/rings-Jewel Mint, shoes-Forever 21(similar here)

The great thing about this outfit is that it's made up of pieces I've had for quite sometime, well over a year or two, which is one of the things I love about inspiration photos from other "real world" sources, they provide ideas that bring a newness to "old" garments. I'm also enjoying the mix of menswear with delicate pieces. A white lace skirt can be tricky to pull off, it's uber-fem AND can be vintage-y, which doesn't always jive with my modern androgynous aesthetic. Ideally, it's all about finding things to balance out those vibes, while still celebrating that vintage-fem feel.
