One Top, 3 Ways

Happy Thursday all! As you know, I am a working girl (no, not that kind-get your mind of of the gutter.) A working girl who likes to shop! And, because I went to art school and not med school, I have a limited budget to devote to clothes. I pride myself in being a smart shopper- I love hunting down deals online and planning lots of different ways to wear my pieces to get maximum mileage. And like most women I know, I need my clothes to go from the office, to errands, and out to dinner, so I rarely buy something that isn't versatile enough for all these needs. Enter a new little feature on my blog: One Piece, 3 ways. Now I have visual justification for all my purchases- right Geoff?! Right!

Starting things off is a top I have been lusting over at Anthropologie.
Check out how versatile the Tutu Top is! Definitely a must-buy.


Work Ruffles: The blazer offsets the girly ruffles, and a clean cropped pant shows off some serious shoes. Also love the pops of turquoise with an overall neutral outfit and the braided details in the belt and heels.

Daytime Ruffles: So cute for running errands or going to brunch (my favorite meal-I am a fan of any meal requires you drink champagne.)  Skinny jeans and adorable flats are comfortable, just add some exotic touches with a zebra cardi and owl ring. And a big structured tote will hold everything you need for the day.
Details here

Evening Ruffles: A high waisted pencil skirt gives the girlish blouse some sex appeal. Add some seriously hot stilettos (see below) and a studded belt to toughen up the look. Pops of orange in the earrings and clutch add a playful twist.

You might have noticed the fab nude suede shoes in the "Evening Ruffles" set, and now these lovelies are all mine! Yeah, these are a result of a super crappy Monday at work. And no, I can't walk in them, but walking is way overrated anyway...

Victoria Pumps in Blush here.

(BTW, I can just see my sis-in-law and future mother-in-law rolling their eyes- they are always getting on to me about my impractical footwear choices.)
