LA CATRINA de LA Moda: outfit: maxi skirt + lace top

Oct 10, 2010

outfit: maxi skirt + lace top


what I wore
see through


I think it's very funny that most people find this outfit "shocking".  Yes, I received many WTF stares from people through out the day... especially at the gas station, and at the atm.  Of course my boyfriend did not like this outfit, and found it to be in very bad taste.  In other words if it were up to him I would not be wearing this outfit, but it's not. Like I have said many times before... "I wear what I love" and that's that!
Stares, glances, "wtf's" and all I wear what makes me happy.. <3 -  the end.

F21 top + bra
H&M maxi skirt + belt

Oh I Just LOVE this! You look Stunning! Tell me about the stares! The difference is you are a fashionista and the people who give you crazy looks probably are not!

I have a few sheer or lace tops, just wish I had the confidence to wear them without a cami (because the cami ruins it most often). I love the lace blouse with the maxi skirt, and girl you look great! I really love that bra too - its sparkles, right?

Pretty. For sure! Guys will never understand mines the same grrr. Cute outfit. Xo Ari

Oooo we are bag twins. :D Yay!

I actually like this look. You have no reason to get "wtf" stares, just because your bra is showing? Really!! I think you've done see through tastefully and it's fun.. The bra looks glittery or sequin-y. Love it. AND you've got the bod to pull it off.

Happy 10.10.10!!!

xx Love & Aloha

you look amazing. I feel like people who don't have an appreciation for clothes don't know what to do with themselves when they see someone wear something "different". Just remember that you look fierce!

p.s What didn't your bf like about this outfit?


clothes are cute

Hey Ari! So obviously those people don't know good fashion sense when they see it. I always get wtf stares but I know that in my head that I'm confident under my skin and you look beautiful from head to toe in this outfit. I LOVE IT! :) keep smiling and keep your head up! And I'm glad to know theres another blogger that has the same taste in music as me. Your luck you live in LA. They always have awesome shows. Here in Hawaii we don't get much of anything :( Happy Sunday love! xoxo; ♥Jackie

"I wear what I love" - my kind of stylin' woman!! I'm fainting with lace and crucifix envy here - shades of Madonna for sure. I think you look very tasteful - the lace is very pretty, you've paired it with a gorgeous skirt, giving the outfit great proportions. People are threatened by non-conformists - you probably didn't see all the people who were admiring your outfit:). Go girl! xo

Jony said...

Obviously those people don't know the word fashion, I think you look stunning dear! I hope your internship went great today!!
I'm so excited because Forever21 is coming to our country!!! YAY!!!

eelectroCutee said...

maybe those people who are staring at you never seen a girl with lace top before.. hahahaha So, they like.. 'Wtf she's wearing'.. and once again maybe your bf doesnt like the outfit because he knows that there will be such stare..
but, I think you look great and the most important thing, you're comfortable with that outfit.. :)

I'm a huge fan of maxi's, and I love the way you've paired 2 different textures here. Nice look!
