I've had this top for a couple years, but seem to keep finding new ways to wear it. I love it, because it's like wearing a beautiful scarf that you can tie multiple ways. For some reason, I felt kind of rockstar-ish in this outfit, though I definitely didn't act it on this particular evening. I drank too much wine at a bbq and wussed out minutes after arriving at Russia House maybe around 11:30 (though I don't even think it was that late). Lame.

Also to file under Lame: my arm is very sore from playing the sword fighting game in the Wii Resort. I swear our generation will have a definition for Wii elbow in the dictionary.

Foley and Corinna top
Forever 21 vest
Mango jeans
Betseyville shoes
Chanel purse
necklace from a boutique in Hoboken
Hermes bangle


PS Ambar, thank you so much for the very kind shout out!

Perfect! Just perfect! I have a top that I call a (clubbing top) that I don't wear anymore. Maybe if I put a vest or something over it to I could wear it during the day.

Wii Resort owns all!
And, I love the color coordination of your outfit. Have very similar jeans and the color of the top is divine.
The shoes are another league of fabulous, however.

Love the shoes!! We went to a karoke joint that had private rooms, so you only had to sing in front of the party you were with.
