- Congratulations to my brother and his wife for finally moving into their new home! I wore this outfit to their lovely hose warming event. I Love that this outfit gives this retro vibe with the cropped trousers and it's psychedelic print. They were on sale at Forver21. I don't really shop there anymore because their clothes are poorly made and although I sew, who wants to spend ALL of their time fixing garments they just purchased?? Not I. But I was highly attracted to the design and color. I'm not really a fan of purple and decided to take a risk. I paired it with a vintage knit tunic that my Tia gave me like 10 years ago and at the time being a 13 year old kid I was aware of vintage clothing but didn't know what the heck I would do with top until now. I'm glad I held onto it though! Another risk that I took with this outfit is with the shoes. I went totally opposite of what the norm would've been like a black shoe. I didn't want to match because it drives me BANANAS! The earrings are actually a DIY project idea that I picked up from A Pair & A Spare. Buy some really inexpensive earrings and then paint them what ever color you like to add some defintion to what used to be dull cheap earrings.
