Mint Condition

Monday, August 15, 2011


Now that we're almost approaching Fall, I'm trying to bust out as many candy colors as I can before retiring them for the Summer. I've held onto this minty green confection for almost 5 years now, first purchasing on sale at Urban Outfitters for a measly $10. 


I love the texture of the bodice with its Deco-inspired pattern and fun frilly deep-V. Perfect for social dinners that start out innocently enough, then wham-bam!..Off goes the sweater then we're ready for after-hours baby! 


It's a shame at this age after hours means hightailing it to the local Mexican Food truck for a greasy burrito then in bed by midnight. Once upon a time this ensemble could've taken me first to dinner, then out clubbing, and finally to a 24-hour Pho joint we're more mingling would ensue. But of course I'm old now boooooooo....

  1. What a cute post and I can't believe you got such a great deal on that top. I really like it and you're funny in the last sentence. You look 21 so that's all that matters. AND I totally agree, I'm trying to wear all my summer gear before it's over. :)

  2. I love it! You look gorgeous and I think you should wear it all year long! I think you can still wear soft colors and even bold bright ones in the winter if they are paired with neutral items.
