Defiant



Let's count all the style rules that I'm probably breaking...

(Thank you Ashley of Mocha Mommies for taking pics & being a dreamweaver!)

1. Stripes are a no-no on those "thick in the hips"
2. Top heavy chicks shouldn't wear loose fitting tops
3. Matching is necessary
4. Style bloggers should not repeat clothes (I'm not sure if that's a rule)


I pretty much broke them all. When I was 3 or 4 years old, I kissed a hot stove because somebody said don't touch it. It's what I do. Doesn't always work out for me. But it will never be from the lack of trying:)

Tee/Skirt: Target
PLV "Irina" Heels
I ordered a dress from ASOS last year & it arrived in that beautiful fabric. I decided to stuff one of my large clutches in it.



 Pardon me while I do a little housekeeping:

P.S. God is good. That is all. Carry on...

LOVE this outfit, no matter how many rules you broke! Suits you so well, you look fierce and so beautiful, love the colours!

I love this outfit and I'm with you on breaking fashion rules. SOme of them are just BS. The rules really come from trying to make everyone look slim, atleast that's what I think.

ou look great and I have to try the DIY clutch because yours is fantaastic.

I SO don't believe in fashion rules, but if I did, I wouldn't mind you breaking them in this outfit! :-) That skirt came from Target? I haven't seen it there; I need to check out the Target on your side of town! Can't wait to meet you Tuesday :-)

My oldest sister is stuck on matchy matchy. She scolds me every time my handbag doesn't match my shoes. Umm who does that? Black and white is one of my favorite combos. Since I started following your blog I'm branching out from the tradition and throwing in color instead of buying more colorful dresses :) Keep breaking all the rules love!

Girl you look FAB..I so love stripes and I guess I'm always breaking the rules, but I say the heck with them ha. I love how you added the purple top with it. I broke the rules today also in my color blocking post. I'm always wearing stripes and they are actually one of my favs.
