In Tulle like Rihanna

 This was my outfit tonight to go to the mini thread show with my girlfriend. The inspiration came from this tiny photo of Rhinana:
I tried on so many different grey blazers but none looked right so changed it up a bit with a white graphic tee and a tweed shorter jacket instead:
Wearing my new romwe tulle skirt. Love it. Loved how I was covered in tulle all night. Like wearing a wedding gown!

These shoes are super old and used to my work shoes for the season they were bought. They show a bit of an age but the style is unique so I kept them:

Jacket - Part of a suit from Newport News
Tee - from a street vendor in Turkey
Skirt - Romwe
Socks, bracelets, red belt - Forever 21
Shoes - BCBGirls
Knuckle Clutch purse - Expressions NYC (from TJ Maxx)

And here is the outfit I wore during the day to do grocery shopping, visit the dr with my dad and some early xmas shopping since the store was near the Dr's office:

The Inspiration Photo:

Everything from Forever 21 except for the boots which are UGGs...

Thread show was tiny in this hair salon with 2 clothes vendors, 1 purse vendor and 1 very cool jewelry vendor with prices in the $500-$800 range so that was a bit weird.
We actually picked out a 'ton' of clothes especially me but ended up only getting 2 graphic tee's and my friend bought one adorable dress. We then went to dinner and enjoyed a night without kids. Took some photos with the iphone but it is too late to download right now...

  8. Tulle is one of my favorite fabrics. The first time I saw Rihanna's outfit I thought the mix was wonderful. A bit princess meets rocker. I love your version.

    This blazer is perfect! These shoes belong in my closet as well.

    BTW... thank you for stopping by my blog the other day... and yes, I did remove the jacket for "ultimate fierceness" when I met the girls for dinner and drinks. Red sweater & black leather skirt... I got a little attention. Hee Hee!
