{For Fashion's Sake} Saturday: Week Classics

11.13.2010

I love to break the rules of fashion; but there is something wonderful about the classics.
 I don't think it can get much more classic than the 
tried and true 
Yellow Navy Blue color combo.
But if you know me, you know I couldn't stand for complete predictability, so I paired this timeless pallet with 
striped trouser-socks for some added spice.




The Breakdown:
Yellow Cardigan: H&M $14
Pearl Earrings: Forever21 $4
Navy & White Striped Shirt: H&M $12
Braided-Leather Belt: Thrifted $1
Navy Pencil Skirt: (Jones of New York) Thrifted (and altered) $4
Striped-Trouser Socks: Urban Outfitters $8
Leather RocketDog Mary-Janes: Nordstroms $65 (?) it's been a long time

Your outfit is fantastic, and yeah I like the trend with the socks, but I never did it.. How stupid! What do you think of following each other? xx Nura from 'World Of Fashion Inpspiration'

so cute, gotta LOVE H&M! and I totally agree with the whole yellow and navy blue thing...my favorite colors in clothing :)

Krista said...

This is the first time I've seen the socks with heels trend and liked it! Great job!

I think the socks with shoes trend is deplorably adorable when executed with heels and on young, slender legs like yours.

If thicker legs like mine want to do it, and I don't totally recommend it, they need shorter socks, higher heels, and a lot of confidence.

But like I said on you, deplorably adorable. Maybe I'll live vicariously through Coco on this trend.

Did I tell you I bought her a faux fur wrap? I don't think there are proper letter combination's in the Western alphabet to describe how cute she looks in it. If you can try to plan a trip to AZ around Valentine's Day, we'll provide you and Marcus with a decadent celebration to attend.

ashley in wonderland said...

I'm not sure, but I think if you "create a link" (under the comment box) then do a post on your blog, it will make a link on my blog. otherwise you can just put it on FB and I'll look and see how cute you are!

i like the socks and heels look, but it just makes me want even higher platform heels. which, if that's the worst of my problems, then it's not so bad.

Modest Fashion Sense said...

Um, yes I love the socks and heels trend! Now to just get those fabulous Christmas presents (one of which is awesome shoes) so that I can pull it off :)

Sara {Sara's Closet} said...
