i've told you all of my secrets.






vintage blazer, alice + olivia bustier, oysho silk shorts, sam edelman boots.

And finally I've introduced you to my so-called pimp blazer. You might remember seeing the other half of my pimp suit here, except the blazer is somehow much less agreeable than the pants when it comes to pairing it with stuff in general. It screams when I don't put something of mild coloring (does that make sense?) with it.
I wore this to my sister's birthday dinner over the weekend and I think the combination of a bright turquoise blazer and a bustier got me some "what is she wearing" looks but hey, that's half the fun of it. Although I'm wishing now I lugged my giant chunk of a camera to dinner, because when the sun set it got cold so I pulled up my thigh highs (that are scrunched here; very convenient for sudden changes in weather) and decided I liked my outfit better that way.
