Style File: Night out with Iris Apfel

Hey everyone! Sorry I didn’t get this up yesterday, there just were not enough hours in the day it seemed like. Anyways on Friday I drove out to Beverly to meet up with the ever so lovely Julie from Orchid Grey. We got all dolled up and headed over to the PEM to see the Iris Apfel exhibit and hear her talk. She is such an amazing lady and her Jewelry is unbelievable!! We meet up with Cassie and Lauren and spend the night chatting, sipping wine and wondering around picking out our favorite outfits. We even got our picture taken with Mrs. Apfel. Amazing! We were so excited!!!

Here is what I wore to the exhibit. I wanted to step up my jewelry wearing with a few more accessories than I would normal put on. Iris Apfel is such an inspiration with accessories!! I really love how this whole outfit came together. Its one of my new favorites! This blouse I got at a thrift store in Hawaii and it has been a staple in my closet ever since. I love the puffed shoulders and simple detail, perfect for layering with accessories. This skirt I got at forever 21 and love the gold brocade detail. I kind feel like a glammed up pirate in this outfit, which is totally ok by me!

Blouse: Thrifted $4
Skirt: Forever 21 $20ish
Tights: H&M $6
Booties: Anne Michelle $20
Accessories: A combo of thrifted and Forever 21

Here is the picture of all of us…
