Style File | 02.20.12


When I was in NYC the other week, I had the honor of helping host a blogger event with Lulu*s. It was awesome to see so many of my blogging friends and meet some lovely new ones. I was representing the vintage section of clothing at the party, so I decided to wear this pretty thrifted skirt that I found. Nothing says party like a skirt with tinsel all over it! I also took a page out of Krystal’s stylebook and wore my cardigan backwards.
