Chapter Defense










These are, belatedly, some of my Festivus and boxing week shopping scores – a blue silk and lace tank from Target (on sale for $10 because a few threads were loose in the back), a sort of shiny blue and black skirt from the Gap (which I got for like $20), wedge booties from F21 (they aren’t terribly comfy but for short jaunts they’re just peachy and they cost like $15), and a cameo from Laila Rowe. Pair it all with my trusty black cardigan (a wardrobe must for me if ever there was one) and the beautiful jacket from H&M that my awesome helpmeet gifted me and you’ve got yourself a look. And just in time because I have my chapter defense this morning!

I Love everything about this outfit ! The necklace is Stunning and I also Really LOVE that skirt. I also Love the style of shoe, it is a very sleek design. I am very impressed by F21 with these shoes, they look very expensive. I always have good luck at F21. I recently got a Really nice Faux leather jacket there for $24.00. Also Good Luck today !!

GREAT JACKET!! And the accessories are precious.

HOW ARE YOU? I just love that we are still connected after all this time. It must be well over a year, no?? I think there should be some kind of big blogger meet-up for all those connected to Edmonton...

I think this is one of my favorite outfits! Looks so great together... and those shoes (although uncomfortable!) are AWESOME.

Pop Champagne said...

I loveee that top! and agree with you on walmart, it's so sad to see walmart going into places and taking over local stores, especially when you know they don't treat their employees well at all.

Lisa Lisa Lisa said...

Oooh I like this saucy outfit!!! That top really is a find.

We had a Walmart recently move in. I wish it was a Target.

Dude, CE. Tell us more about that halo setting ring you're wearing. Woo-wee!

Honeysuck_elle said...

Love this outfit is one of my favorites I've seen on your blog thus far. I'm a sucker for black, and I love the combination of blue silk and black. The jacket is great too.
