what i wore: FNO

{princess by Vera Wang jacket, a.n.a tee, Newport News flannel, vintage necklace, Jean-Michel Cazabat heels}

I was feeling a little more badass than normal, and this ladies and gents is how the above look came about. Some might argue it's heinous and unflattering- the addition of the 90's grunge flannel definitely does not detract from my hips- while some actually saw my vision. 

The tee, the rolled up denim, the shoes and the jacket were already part of the look- but it was missing something- even the very large pendant didn't do the trick. From the corner of my closet the flannel, um, spoke to me. 

And even after reevaluating the mixed reviews- the flannel stayed. Funny thing is I'm glad it did, it made the look more me. You may have already seen the bottom half of this outfit if your following me via Instagram- if not I'm @allergictovanilla. After sharing and tagging the image on FNO- I was notified that the Man Repeller- of all freaking style genius'- picked my FNO look as her favorite to win a gift from Paige denim!! 

Moral of the story is- we are all separated by six degrees to someone fabulous, and maybe not so fabulous, but that's for another blog post. So if you are on Instagram and I'm not already following you please leave your handle so I can stalk be inspired by your style! And of course I'd be eternally grateful- if you were inspired by my style, in the slightest- to want to follow me back. :)

Happy freakin' hump day, loves.
