Hope all is well my good people. Have you ever gotten a compliment, but the person saying it kind of felt like they were about to offend you; yet, they said it anyway?? Yea that happened to me. A co-worker was talking about how I alway dress so fashionable around the office. She said I usually wear one off beat, bizarre item of clothing and some how it brings the entire outfit together. She was very hesitant when she was saying this (fearful of hurting my feelings), but I was completely flattered. I told her that mixing is my forte', and that if she noticed that about my style then I had accomplished my goals, and properly displayed my style philosophy. She simply hit me with an "aww ok". lol

Well the off beat piece in this outfit is my vintage gold leather shirt. My dearest, Mia of Eve's Apple Vintage
, sold me this gem from her personal vintage collection. I remember being so excited about this shirt that I wore it out the store. lol. Here I belted the shirt for a slimmer shape, but i've worn the shirt without the belt with a pair of skinny jeans and it looks super cute.
Last Week I was featured on NYTimes.com's Fashion & Style - Street Style section. The theme was Metallics so I submitted my photo with my gold shirt, and it was selected. I included a screenshot of myself from site, but you can click here
