garden party

One of my very best friends since childhood came for a visit this past weekend! She is a huge fan of 80′s rock, so when she heard there was a Aerosmith cover band playing at a local pub, of course we had to go.  I can’t pass up a chance to play dress-up, so I put on my acid washed jeans, my spiked bracelet, and my trusted moto-jacket for a night of dancing and laughing so hard I thought I was going to pee my pants.

The above is of course not an appropriate outfit for a 80′s rock concert. This is much more appropriate for a summer garden party. But it made me realize that I have a very versatile closet; 80′s rock show? Garden party? No problem!

purple cardigan: American Apparel
floral sweet heart dress: Blonde
snake skin sandels: Aldo (old)
hot pink purse: Kate Spade
floral sunglasses: D&G
bracelet: Forever 21
necklace: vintage

    Very nice work here. The big reason I avoid adding to my wardrobe is my confidence in my choices. This site is exactly what I need to getting it ‘right’. I especially love that I can buy everything here in Kelowna. Thanks for the inspiration. Where did the Kate Spade purse come from?

      Hey Krista! Thanks so much! I purchased the Kate Spade bag in Pheonix at a Kate Spade store. It is available online I believe though.
