My Stuff: Maroon Mini

I’ve had this ruffly floral top from the H&M Garden Collection for more than half a year and I’ve only worn it twice. The last time I photographed myself wearing it was on 24 November 2011 (see this post)

So anyway for the longest time, I haven’t had much inspiration and couldn’t figure out how to wear it without looking frumpy. I haven’t had the heart to give it away or throw it out and was hoping for a miracle.

I found this cut-tag maroon miniskirt for a real steal at S$12 when browsing through a small neighbourhood shop today. What do you think? It works right? What should I pair it with? (Duh! What a dumb question… what else but my everyday staple, the black ballet flats?)

Because I had no one around, these blurry pictures were taken with PhotoBooth on my MacBook.

What I’m wearing today:

Top: Floral ruffles top from The Garden Collection by H&M

Bottom: Black “Skinny” jeans from NEXT

Accessories: Pink bangle from Sonia Rykiel for H&M; Black beaded choker from some random street shop

Footwear: Black strappy heels from CAMPER

I can’t rock this look. I think the blouse will have to go. I really love it but it’s not my style. Also these jeans are supposed to be skinnies or at least that’s what the label at the back says. But I guess I’m so weirdly shaped that it only fits at the waist and it’s too loose around my legs. Gaaah!!
