Birthday in Mint
Greetings readers! I'm a bit behind in my posting this week - though I actually did have time, I was simply a bit forgetful. Perhaps it was a combination of the whir of the season as well as my continuing virus (I'm finally starting to feel better today!). In any case, I'm here now! :D
Last Friday, my family hosted a game night at our home that was also a birthday party! I celebrated my twentieth birthday with good fellowship, fun games, and yummy food. Being myself, I just had to wear something cute for the occasion. What can you expect from a fashion blogger? ;)
Happily, I had acquired just the thing for the occasion not many days before. This darling robin's egg blue blouse is from from one of our local thrift stores. I really like everything about it - its color, retro shape, eyelet details and slender belt say "Paige" all over! The first time I ever tried it on was for this event, and was quite pleased to find that it fit me perfectly. I added a black skirt and black tights, and put my hair up in a messy 60's inspired ponytail to complete the look. Though simple, the ensemble was elegant and party-ready.
Outfit Details: Blouse ~ Thrifted; Skirt ~ Thrifted; Tights~ Winco?; Heels ~ Target?
Do you ever buy clothes without trying them on first? Have you ever been as successful as I was with my blouse or purchased something that did not fit at all?
I'd like to hear about your shopping triumphs and your disasters!
