What I always say about bags is, except the fact that I wish mine came with a freezer compartment so I can store food, but another thing I always say is, a women’s bag is not a bag if you can’t fit a crossbow in it! My new bag from Nmenouno
does the exact opposite. I wore it when we bought the crossbow for Christmas, which I showed you in my December favorites
, and not only did the crossbow fit, but the bag had a few small pockets for storing my lipstick too. Double win!
Jokes aside, (I’m not joking, I’m dead serious)
today’s outfit is an attempt at mixing different fabrics, and Nmenouno’s
bag was perfect for the job. I wanted to create an outfit consisted of vast amount of patterns, colors and textures, so for the first layer I chose a feminine shift dress with lace. I think the mixture of the bag’s sturdy fabric and creative motives, and the delicate material of the dress is a winning combo.
For the upper layer I couldn’t help myself but wore my new Christine knit cardigan I was secretly saving for a second hand haul post. The reason I’m so excited for the cardigan is that it is from Noisy May, but I found it brand new in a thrift store for the amount of 15$! Whoever gave away this mouthful of deliciousness, thank you!!! It now has a proud and happy owner and I’m giving it away only over my dead gorgeous body!
For jewelry this is the first time I decided to wear my golden swan necklace that was hand crafted for my graduation. I must have been a very delicate soul back then, considering I wanted a swan. If you ask me what I want handcrafted now, I’d probably say a golden pizza. I guess when you turn 25 priorities shift!
For a complete textured finish, I paired everything with my favorite chunky gray socks, camel booties and black leggings.
What do you guys think of this attempt at mixing, do you likey?
If you had a chance to get a handcrafted jewel what would you want it to be?
