Stripes, Bows, and Red Lipstick

First of all, I have to say thank you to everyone that commented my last post! All of your comments made me so happy! I replied to some of them via e-mail. If you didn't receive an e-mail, please check the comments section of "Spring Awakening" for my reply.

This outfit was inspired by two new additions to my wardrobe: a navy/cream stripe top from Dorothy Perkins and jeggings from Yours Clothing. It was my first time ordering from the UK retailers, and I have to say I am very impressed with the quality and shipping from both stores. I paired the navy/cream top and jeggings with a white cardigan, cream headband, multi-colored charm bracelet, pointy-toe flats, and red lipstick.

    @ Monique, Thanks, Mo. Feminine and fun - love those words to describe my style. :)

    @ Tobes, I love this bracelet. Its one of my prized possessions. :)

    @ Stephanie, you need a pair of jeggings in your wardrobe. I'm so glad I bought some because they are just as versatile as leggings! These jeggings from Yours were on sale for just 10 pounds!

    @ The Pale and Pallor Princess, thank you! The zipper detail is so fun. Its a great and subtle way to add some rocker chic to my girly wardrobe.

  14. OOH girl check you out with all your LV! Cute outfit! Love the jeggings. I was thinking about ordering from yoursclothing, but curvygirlchic had a bad experience with shipping. How was your experience? any issues?

  15. @ Cid, I heard about Allison's experience. :( Luckily, I had no troubles with Yours Clothing. I was e-mailed dispatch updates and received my package 8 days after placing the order. I purchased the jeggings on sale which made the experience even better.

  21. I love your blog and have added it to blogs I read at every opportunity. I didn't mention that with the last post and I feel bad. I am so happy I came upon your blog when I was looking up lace. Thanks for the reply too, I really appreciate it. You have great style and I love your accessories.
    Stripes....I do like them...wary though....have never ever worn stripes before. You look hot...I don't know if I could be comfortable...should I try? What have I got to lose except my fear of ME in stripes? Should I just go for it? Aahhh...I thought I had a better body image but sometimes it fails me....

  23. @ Plus Size Fashion Queen, post an ootd w/stripes soon. I'd love to see how you incorporate them into your look!

    @ Em, I will tell my boyfriend you like the detailed shots. He's my personal photog. lol

    @ Dataman 2, thank you. Fortunately, MAC Red lipstick does not contain any lead.

    @ Stephanie, thanks girl!!

    @ Gazel, welcome to my blog! Thank you for the compliment. Looking forward to reading yours and getting to know you!

    @ Iza, Aw, thanks Iza!!

    @ Annie, Thank you for such kind words! I say give stripes a try. If you're that weary of them, then cover them up with a blazer or cardigan so the appearance of them won't be so overwhelming for you. When it comes down to it, if you don't feel comfortable wearing them (or any other type of clothing), then don't wear them! Simple as that. Wear what makes you happy and confident in yourself.

    @ Carly, I know you love a red lipstick! :)
