Pop Op

Sweater - the Limited, thrifted
Skirt - Smoking Lily, gift from Sheila
Socks - ??
Logic Flats - Cydwoq
Belt-as-necklace - gift from Sheila

Originally I had planned to go to this event down in Nashville tonight. I kind of chickened out once I did some more research about the area. I know Nashville fairly well, but I don't like walking around down there at night if I can help it, especially during winter. The DH and I may still do the art crawl this weekend, but it's an area I'm familiar with, and we know where to park.

I decided to make an excursion to the Samaritan Thrift that Lynne and I discovered during our blogger meet-up. I didn't have a ton of cash to play with, but the prices are generally very low. I came out with a green (pleather) jacket for the DH, a pair of naturalizer mary janes and 2 purses for myself, and a Christmas bundle for Lynne (not pictured! It's a surprise!).


I was going to wear my black All Saints dress (from Megan) with this obi to the event, but I decided to do a more casual version of the tricked out look I had picked out. I swapped in my other Sheila skirt paired with this cotton sweater in lieu of the dress. I grabbed some knee high socks instead of tights.

I really like the weave of this sweater. It was 99cents and all cotton, but I got it home and realized it was MADE to be off shoulder. A little more risque than my usual, but a neat quirk to the otherwise plain sweater.  Not sure why baring my shoulders feels exposing.

Another heads up, if you're interested in some MMD accessories for Christmas, remember to order soon. I've packaged up buttonflowers at discount rates. You can see the collections on the buttonflower page. And  I do have many in-stock obis still available, including the one I'm wearing today.

  1. I really like the off the shoulder styling of this sweater--like you said, it makes this basic piece anything but basic!

  2. YOU LOOK TOTALLY GORGEOUS!! And totally you at the same time. I've never seen you this dressed up (must be the bare shoulder). I hope you enjoyed your evening despite the change of plans. The belt is beautiful on you, too.

    Thank you for my package of button flowers!! I played with them, rearranging them into all kinds of combinations. They're magical and the possibilities seem limitless. You'll definitely be seeing them in future posts. Thank you sooooo much; they're beautiful.

  8. Wow, girl, you look stunning. You don't do that sexy evening look often, so it is a super adventurous and lovely treat. Plus, I don't think your shoulder is exposed much and it looks so edgy and modern, so this sweater really has a lot to offer for re-mixing.

    I cannot wait to come back next summer and visit you again and go to that Samaritan Thrift store again. Ohs boys, it is awesome, but we might have come to blows over those shoes so I guess it's good I WASN'T there...lol.

  9. I love this look even if you didn't end up going to the event! The belt just pops off the page and the dress is gorgeous!!

    Great finds at the thrift store - I really like the purse on the right of the photo!

    And thank you so much again for the little package you sent me! Keep your eyes peeled in the coming week or so for something from me! <3

  10. Actually I was going to compliment you first on the sweater and the fact that it is off the shoulders. You have sort of created a dress with this look. Love the color-matching & print-mixing of your socks & belt. And once again, another cool Star Accessory! How many do you own?

  12. Love the one shoulder look on you and pairing it with the knee sox and obi tie belt is quirky and classy at the same time.

  13. What a cute outfit!! Love the obi with it!!
    I spied one a sweater like your grey open-y weave one at the thrift. If it had been a bit smaller I would've snageed it for you--alas you and I both could've worn it -it was HUGE!!

    1. I didn't realise it was the belt,t looks great as a necklace. I really like this, a creatively-put together outfit. Your shoulder looks good out! Can it come out more often? :-)
