Concrete Catwalk: Neon Plaid

November 1, 2011
this might be one of my favorite outfits in a long time.
(and it all came from local shops, thrift stores & clothing swaps!)
i wore it to the grand opening party at the new kate spade store on the plaza,
and ended up buying myself a little early birthday pressie while i was there.
you guys totally buy yourself birthday treats, right?!
(oh, please say yes!)

jacket (similar) – vintage, thrifted
earrings – DIY
clutch (similar) – vintage, thrifted
faux leather leggings (similar) – clothing swap

    Great casual/chic look! The leather leggings are supper sharp!

    Yes, I do buy myself birthday gifts. I thought that all women did?

    BTW… I just posted about my day wearing leather pants. Thought it might interest you? Hope you’ll stop by?

    I definitely buy myself birthday presents, holiday presents and cheer up presents. I have no shame in the to me/from me gifts, and neither should you! :)

    You are killing it in those leggings – gorgeous!
