Daily Outfit - Braces and Jazz Hands



Outfit Details: Red leopard top - The Coveted on Etsy, Black ruffled lace top - Entrace, Black Braces - costume shop, Wide legged cuffed pant - Living Doll, Red and Black checkered OTK's - Columbine, Shoes - Wittner, Red Rose earrings - Diva.

Today was one of those rare and wonderful days, when all the planets align and you experience shopping serendipity. I was fortunate enough to have my in-laws here to look after both girls for the day, and headed in to the city of a shopping mission. I had a couple of things on the list of To Do's, but I just kept on finding all these lovely new stores, fabulous trinkets , amazingly helpful staff and those things I had been meaning to buy for ages. In fact, I even had the opportunity to get the low down on some fabulous inner city boutiques that are worthy of their own posts. So I'll have to get it all together and bring you lots more eye candy over the week.

Tomorrow is my baby's birthday. She turns one, (sniff sniff) and I can hardly believe it is happening already. Miss Four is planning tomorrows menu (fairy bread and jelly cups), and is also quite keen on planning my wardrobe for the day. She suggested that I should dress as Snow White and she can be Cinderella. When I told her I didn't think I could whip out a Snow White outfit quite so quickly, she suggested that instead I could be Cinderella's "Fairly Good Mother". Well, I guess that's the best a Mother can hope for.

Congrats on your shopping! My eldest has a birthday tomorrow as well, so we will have a Six about the house. I am giggling at "Fairly Good Mother!"

You so pull off suspenders!

enc said...

Perfect, as always!

K.Line said...

That's adorable! Happy birthday to the baby... (My baby is 8 but I still - jokingly - call her "the baby" in a wierd baby-talk voice.) She actually thinks it's funny unless other people are around. Then it's strictly not on.

You look ridiculously cute (should I say kawaii?) in this outfit! My little dude turns 2 on Saturday too.

Lady Smaggle said...

Oh I love your streak! Is that new? Or did you just use it more in this hari do?

I love it! The wide pants are great, and I love them with the braces.

Lil Midget said...

Lovely! I need to get some braces myself for Jazz in the Park :) And a fedora hat of course

Karen Lazarenko said...

Such a beautiful outfit! I wish trousers were my friend but alas they only make me look shorter then I am. :C

Happy Birthday to Miss One!! :D

HAPPY BIRTHDAY FOR YOUR LITTLE BABY! As my mum always said, and still does, 'they grow up so fast' :)

I must say that I adore your outfit, my favorite colour red mixed with my favorite accessories, braces! A lovely mix. I actually met my fiance when I was wearing braces

Happy Birthday Little Miss 4.

Can you believe they didn't know what fairy bread was when I moved over here. Now it's requested at school and birthday parties :)

You look gorgeous in your outfit. Love it.

Wendy B: It is a regular fave around here.
Amy G: Parties all round!
Danielle Delamont: I love the way the give such a cheeky vibe to an ordinary outfit.
enc & K.Line: Thank you
Skye: Wonderful, will we get to see some matching party outfits?
Lady Smaggle: I've had the streak for ages, it just depends on how I separate it into the style.
Esme: They are the best wide pants ever, they have a rather Chaplin-esque quality to them.
Lil Midget: That sounds like fun.
Karen L: I'm not tall either (5 foot 4), but if you get the length and cut just right, they can make you look so much taller.
On Track: Fabulous things happen to women when wearing braces.
Tonya: Did they have it under another name or just not at all? I guess in the land of Twinkies there is no need for this DIY kind of party food.
The collector: I have a rose ring in black too (not from Diva), but I really love this muted red. It has a much more vintage feel.
Imelda Matt: We always have birthday week here, and given that there are 4 in July (we always include the dogs)then another 2 in August, the cellar is rapidly emptying!
Susie Bubble: When accessories are sparse, its Jazz hands to the rescue.
Trend de la creme: A much underutilized styling tool.
