(Banana Republic trench, Free People tutu skirt, DAVIS by Ruthie Davis shoes, TNA tee, J.Crew socks & necklace, vintage earrings)

When I first spotted this tiered mesh tutu at the Free People store, I gravitated towards the hot pink immediately. A pink tutu skirt is probably not high on anyone's practical shopping list... except for mine! Thank goodness my workplace allows me to wear pretty much anything I want.

The skirt is everything I look for in a standout piece - it's obnoxiously bright, frilly, feminine and just a little too much. To temper its girliness, I paired it with a white tee, trench coat and a layered necklace of faux pearls and rhinestones. And I couldn't resist topping it all off with my DAVIS by Ruthie Davis booties. They're my favorite shoes of the moment, oozing sleek minimalism with perforated patent leather, mirrored chrome heels, a modern shape and rounded toe.

If you have a minute, please vote for my outfit in the H&M Style Eye contest - and feel free to upload your own look as the deadline isn't until March 30th. The prize sounds pretty sweet: 3 winners are flown to NYC, given a $500 H&M shopping spree and featured in a Lucky magazine spread! I've also been busy attending Los Angeles Fashion Week events and meeting dozens of amazing Los Angeles-based bloggers, so stay tuned for updates on the shows and parties.

WHY DO YOU JUMP IN EVERY PHOTO? NO ORIGINALITY IN YOUR PHOTOS OR YOUR STYLE. HAPPY WEARING THE CLOTHES THEN RETURNING THEM ;)

Ruthie Davis said...

What? She is an adorable and original girl who is jumping because she is happy and looks amazing!! Whoever made that anonymous comment is clearly not a happy person - I think these shots are awesome and I designed the shoes! xoxo
