LA CATRINA de LA Moda: what I wore

Jun 7, 2010

what I wore

what I wore:
blue&black


I have been in search of the perfect spring and summer romper.  I did find one or two that took my breath away, however I came across them on a day when I was extremely broke :(
So today I sit here and I am still in search of that perfect  romper, for now I paired this old H&M ruffle blouse tucked into my high waist "flowey" shorts to get the illusion of a romper.

isn't that what fashion is about.... making "it work" with what you have ;)

Also I want to thank all the readers that have taken the time to read, comment and follow my blog.  I appreciate every single comment and I am being honest when saying that they make my day :)
thanks soooo much for stopping by and showing some love ;)

wearing:
URBAN OUTFITTERS jacket (on sale for $29.99!!)
H&M ruffle blouse (old)
TOYS & KANDY shorts
VINTAGE purse
JEFFREY CAMPBELL snick wedges
GUCCI sunglasses

<3Jeffrey Campbells! I've been on the hunt for a couple rompers myself, but the ones I like are each 60+ and I can't convince myself that it's worth it.
