Outfit details:
1. Top - Lovedrobe 2. Skirt - ASOS (Similar Here)
3. Bag-  Gift from Grandma  4. Shoes - Wittner

Nearly all my basic pieces have a slight retro edge, they just knew so well how to dress curves back in the day (or maybe they just were not afraid of curves!). So many high waists, A-Lines and empire styles to name a few. I recently purchased this skirt from ASOS and have a feeling it is going to be getting quite a bit of wear. Its Linen, so it does crinkle quite easily (as you can slightly see!) but i love the retro style paperbag high waist and the way it just flows without being too thick, the bottom line being it was on sale for $35 so really its a no brainer.

The top is a new addition from Lovedrobe which i really simply fall in love with at first site. I love the bright shade of red and the tiny floral details. I have never been much of a typical 'floral' lover, but this floral detailing is just subtle enough that i know i will get the wear out of it.

Now lets get too this bag, this bag was a present from my ever fashionable (Vogue reading) 80 year old Grandma. She purchased it for me about 5 years ago and at the time i remember graciously accepting it but inside thinking 'im not sure quite what to do with this'. I look back now and believe i really just didnt have the confidence to rock such a statement piece ,but now you can barely get this bag of my arm! Its Sunflower Love.
