Outfit of the day. Totally different on the hanger.

Do you ever expect something to look totally different on you than the hanger? I got this shirt from Sarah (my boyfriend's sister), and I wanted to wear it right away. At first I wasn't sure if this top work on me. It has some ruffles on the bust, and I was afraid it would accentuate my bust.
teal v neck top
capri pants
floral purse
 Outfit details: Top- Hand me down. Carpi's- Brooklyn Girl. Dots. Shoes- Kmart. Bracelets- Gift. Purse- Thrifted.

Then I put it on, and was surprised that it seems to do the opposite, and balance my body's shape out. I really love the color, cut, and even the bust ruffles. Who knew? Bust ruffles are my new bff.

We need to chat about this bag. I mean when I thrifted the bag it was love at first sight.. I feel like it goes with everything, and adds a little something something to any outfit. The boyfriend thinks it looks to 80's and then I corrected him because I think he meant 70's. Poor boy needs to get schooled in fashion. I hope everyone is having a great week!

With all my heart,
<3 Vanessa

P.S. Can you tell it was outrageously sunny out when I took these pictures? Cause it was.

  3. You are so right about that shirt. I totally would've been on the same boat regarding the ruffles, but it looks great on you! For it being super sunny, you did an excellent job of not squinting. I LOVE your bag. LOVE. What an amazing thrifting find. :)

    Looking through your past few posts, blue is SUCH a good color for you. It really makes all of your coloring pop.

    And I LOVE bust ruffles....but I also like accentuating my bust!

  7. I've noticed, too, that when a top has something goin' on near the breasts, it actually distracts!  It's something I have to convince my clients of every day. Love the bag!

  10. I think you're both right, to me it looks EARLY '80's. The colors are kinda '80's but it def has a '70 vibe.

    You are rocking the ruffles, cupcake.

  14. Hahahahahahaha-ruffles at the bust my new bff! I had the same experience with tiered anything...I thought tiers would add extra and make me look bulkier in reality what they do to my body is awesome. Totally hides things I want hide ;). LOVE THE BAG...not too anything for me!

    Have you heard of @aqquii's  Boyfriend Project...I believe it's a weekly series now and you have your bf, bro, whatever dude in your life dress you and send it over to the lovely Sara. I would be interested in what your bf does for you!
