This Is a Man's World

I challenged myself to take two menswear-inspired pieces and make them work, together. Voila! It's not such a man's world when you add the right accessories...

I salvaged this silk mustard oxford from the men's section of my local thrift. In the process of styling it, the bottom buttons flew off! Hence, the need to tie it up. I think here it looks even better than it did before...

 Currently trying to find ways to incorporate these lovelies into the Winter rotation as well. They're quite possibly my favorite buy of the season. I posted about them HERE. Got rave reviews from the folks at MBenz Fashion Week after wearing these...

  1. I just started following your blog after a link about your thoughts on lookbook and such and I cannot agree more! I must say, I prefer you so much more than half of the girls on lookbook.. all they do is take their tiny frame and throw on a tshirt and jeans + awkward pose accentuating their skeletal size + highly edited photography, and they recieve 23749 hypes.

    I love those shoes! And im so envious of the colour combination with your skin tone! Perfect!

  2. I love this look, Cece. The mustard shirt is fabulous with the rolled jeans. Casual, but so chic.
