How do you evolve your personal style? Trial and error. Not every purchase is a homerun. I was looking for a fun new sweater at a local Brooklyn Boutique, Nos. I saw this sweater with a cool, distressed neckline from a brand called FUNKTIONAL. I thought it was cool and trendy. The Mr? Not so much.
The outfit started with my new Caramel Aerosoles boots (on sale now $49.99). They've been sending me a pair every month and this pair has been divine in the cold. They are so comfortable it's almost sinful. I wish the heel were a little higher/wedgier, but hey, they are free and warm. I've been making an effort to NOT wear too much black this winter. My red jeans never got put away from summer. They are Lauren Conrad for Kohl's and I think they are so cheerful. The top, well, that's where things get interesting. And I need your opinion.
What do you think? Did I get "ripped off" or was this worth the risk? Let me know and inspire me with a post of your own. One lucky fashionista is going to score a $50 AMEX gift card. Perfect for your next shopping trip!
