OOTD- BIRTHDAY EDITION
It’s been a while since my last post (I was away on vacation and then have been sick since being back!)
I really couldn’t miss out on posting about my birthday outfit.
I came across a quote from Khloe Kardashian and she really put it quite well:
“Leopard print – it’s timeless, chic, and always in style. When in doubt…leopard!”
I couldn’t agree more with her! Ever since I was a little girl I’ve absolutely loved leopard print. Till this day if you take a look at my closet you will see I have built up quite a collection of leopard print shirts, skirts, skirts, jackets, hats, scarfs, you name it, I LOVE it!
One of my other favourites has and will always be pink. I will wear any shade of pink that is thrown my way! So, of course when I came across this fun Kate Spade skirt from Winners that was the best of both worlds I just had to pick it up. This particular skirt was also featured in Seventeen Magazine sported by Lilly Collins from Kate Spade’s Fall 2013 Collection. It just goes to show you, you don’t have to spend a lot to dress like celebrities, you’ve just got to know where to look! It also helped that it was on sale for $40.00 instead of it’s regular retail price of around $200.00.
I also really liked the fit of it, how it was tight at the waist and had a full skirt (better known as fit and flare.) My favourite part about the whole skirt (HIDDEN POCKETS), any skirt or dress with pockets is a winner in my books! The fluorescent pink criss-cross tank I picked up from Winners as well for only $12.99. They had a variety of different patterns and colours but this one immediately caught my attention hanging on the rack (then again, how could I miss it??) To finish off the look I went for a suede open toe bootie made by Calvin Klein that I bought at Winners last summer on sale for $25.00 (have you figured out that I’m a huge Winners fan??) I love the simplicity of the boots from the front and the edginess and creative design of the heel from the back! I kept accessories very simple by borrowing a statement necklace from my mom and rocking some more Kate Spade on my wrist. I bought the black bangle from the Kate Spade outfit for half off it’s retail price at only $25.00!
