What I'm Wearing: Plum Crazy

Hello everyone! Having a great weekend? I hope so. Mine has been fun from watching my cousin (and bride to be) model in a bridal show to trying on potential bridesmaids dresses with my crazy (but awesome) cousins. The bride is letting us choose our own bridesmaid dress so long as it is knee length and gray. I believe I found mine yesterday - think strapless, belted and pockets. Super cute.  We also got to see the bride-to-be try on her dress which made me tear up. I think I may have to stick some tissues in my bridesmaid dress pockets.

Anyway, I finally busted out my adorable bow-adorned skirt that I got for Christmas. The color reminds me of my first car - a 1991 Pontiac Sunbird in purple. You know you're jealous. That car was a beast. I paired the skirt with a plain black top so the purple bow would stand out more. Accessorized with simple sparkles, patterned tights and heels with bows.
 Skirt: H&M (gift), Necklace, Earrings and Long sleeve top: Simply Vera Wang for Kohl's, 
Patterned tights: Gift, Bow Heels: Paris Hilton via TJ Maxx

Thank you so much for stopping by! Your comments always make me giddy like a school girl on a sugar high. Leave your link so I can creep on you. The good kind of creeping. Not the kind where I hang your pictures in my room or anything. (awkward shuffle)

Fashionably yours,

Kassi
