New Stripes

Friday, October 22, 2010


Free Apparel top, H&M tank, Bongo pants (last seen here), 
Aldo pumps (last seen here), vintage necklace, hubs' watch & Mexican bracelet

A fave blog friend of mine (Elisharon) teamed up with Alainn Bella and had a fantastic give-away about a month ago.  I was uber shocked when I won, and so excited!  Up for grabs, a sweet white and black striped mini.  When I spoke with Alainn Bella owner, Megan, about the sizing of the skirt, she said it may be a tad short for me, since I'm so tall (5'11).  She generously offered me the opportunity to put the value of the skirt against any other item in her store.  I was so excited because I had my eye on this sweater before the give-away but was trying to 'be good' (aka minimal shopping).  Megan was super sweet and very helpful.  She mailed the sweater out to me within days, despite getting her wisdom teeth out (talk about a trooper!).  I was so excited when the package arrived, I had to wear it immediately.  I know this is something that is going to be getting tons of play this year.  Thank you so much Megan & Sharon.

So I love that sweater! I've been seeing lots of that style around, and every time I try it on, but sadly I cannot pull it off like you. By the time the sweater makes it over my boobs it's short like a crop top and billowing out like a tent! haha

Oh good choice!! I love that it can go off the shoulder! It adds a little sex appeal to a simple cozy sweater!!
