When: Saturday June 5, 2010

White t-shirt: Present from my parents
Black vest: ? (Europe)
Blue skirt: Forever XXI
Beige booties: from this seller on eBay
Fedora hat: Conway (Panama)
Black Liz Claiborne purse: TJ Max
Jersey necklace: I made it myself ;)

Where: Just a restful day catching up on an interesting book I'm reading.

Today's outfit was inspired by the Victor Victoria challenge over at What I Wore. I think its great that Jessica from What I Wore makes fun challenges for all of her readers to participate, so I decided to give it a try myself.

For this challenge you had to wear either an extremely feminine outfit or a men inspired one. Since dressing feminine would be just too easy, I decided to challenge myself to go with men inspired. So what I did was that I included men inspired items into my outfit, like the fedora hat, the vest, and the retro shoes, while keeping everything else feminine and cute. I know there is a lot going on, but I'm pretty please with the results!

Once I was dressed, I noticed that I was missing some color (remember, I'm the color junky... jaja) so I decided to make a jersey necklace to match my outfit! I actually finished it pretty quickly (about an hour and a half) and felt great that I made a new necklace for myself. I especially love the purple and blue color combo and the cute flowers!

Oh also, you can expect me to post more jersey necklaces during this summer since I have a whole bag full of old t-shirts that need to be put to good use ;)

Here are all the ways in which I've worn my fedora hat:

  1. That sounds like a fun challenge! I think you've got some great menswear elements while still keeping a good deal of femininity.

    The jersey necklace is really cute, and oh the color possibilities!

    Chic on the Cheap

  2. fascinating challenge!


  3. Very nice! I just discovered your blog after participating in the style challenge myself. Love the fedora!
