Blush Tones

07 July 2010










Say hello to my new absolute favorite thrifted
skirt. From my favortie thrift store in Texas actually.
Surprisingly, this skirt was floor length when I
purchased it, but some simple hemming fixed that.
I love a feminine pink, and when I can work
it into my wardrobe I am always quite pleased!

Other good news: I will soon be moving out
of an apartment and into a house! With two of
my lovely friends. It has the most beautiful green
backyard with a deck that leads to a creek.
It will make blogging so much easier by not living
on the third story of an apartment. Wahoo!

wearing: thrifted skirt; f21 blazer & bag; Steve Madden clogs

Lovelovelove that skirt lady! This outfit is absolutely perfect for summertime.

Congrats on the new place!

Your new place sounds great! Especially with the backyard and creek. I am looking forward to pretty backdrops for your outfit photos.:)

The skirt is so nice. The button details definitely sealed the deal for me. I never look at long skirts in the thrift shop because they look ridiculous on me but this post definitely taught me that I might be missing out on some treasures! All they need are a good hemming.

I love the skirt and your purse! I've always had a sort of love affair with those kinds of purses--the quilted material and the chain just say classy to me.

I have a black skirt that has the exact same button pattern. It was floor length and I chopped it shorter. It's so weird how alike they look.

I'd like to rename this blog Flushes of Style - down the drain. Really though, your sad excuse for style is obviously unoriginal and copies others without doing them justice. Not only that but you counter this by boasting excessively about your personal life. I've truly tried to appreciate what you're doing here but it comes off as way too self-centered and self-fulfilling. And the worst part is you having nothing to be proud of about it. You're a twat that cares only about buying (and showing off) clothing. You're a product of the disgusting american consumer culture.
