Isn't it the coolest thing to come across a look in a magazine that you feel you can actually pull off? The July 2012 issue of Marie Claire has just such a look for me! It's called "Denim and Diamonds". It mostly features different combinations of distressed denim with sexy black leather loaded down with diamond accessories. As soon as I saw their take on this, I knew it was something I'd want to try. Better still, I already had everything I needed in my closet and I felt I didn't necessarily have to wait until fall to wear it. My rhinestones, er...I mean diamonds are on my shoes, belt, necklace and some on my bracelets. The bustier I'm wearing is leather with a light croc embossed pattern; the denim of course is my jacket.
I expect to have a thing or two to celebrate this week and Stephen has promised to take me to a restaurant I've been wanting to try, so guess what I'll be wearing?
Eddie Bauer denim Jacket: via Eddie Bauer
Newport News leather bustier: found in antique store
Peter Nygard skirt: via Dillard's (old)
Rhinestone, chain link belt: Express (old)
Silver rhinestone shoes: thirfted
Various "diamond" accessories: thrifted and Walmart.
I'm marking "Wear something strapless" off the list of Jasifer's Big Fat Summer Challenge.
This is an easy look ladies. Who doesn't have some distressed denim, something black and a few diamonds lying around?
I'll be seeing you all tonight at Patti's Visible Monday,
and Monday Mingle
Pssst...quick question before I go. Is anybody having trouble seeing anything on my posts or does anything look especially different? I'm getting a message from Google to download Google Chrome or else I might experience problems. Please let me know. Thanks. Styleagent909@gmail.com
Have a lovely, stylish week!
