TOUGH LOVE, BABY. It was freakishly warm for a St. Louis January day yesterday (1/16) so I took the opportunity to style an outfit that was meant for frolicking around in SoCal sunshine: LEATHER MINIDRESS + TULLE SKIRT. With a strong breeze, it was too chilly to run around in this all day so it was a play-dress-up-and-change kind of outfit. Good thing too because it started hailing soccer balls at my windows at 2 AM - geez, Mother Nature's mood swings are scary as *@$! sometimes. I love paradoxes in life, and pairing leather and girly tutu skirts makes for the perfect oddity. This dainty pearl ring is actually a real pearl I got out of an oyster at Epcot Center Japanworld. I had the 7 mm yellow beauty set in a sterling silver band, size 4. Pretty costly, but for the experience and magic, right?

Today was the first day of my last semester in college, but I didn't go to class (bad kid, iknowright?) Nah, I was at an interview. It's weird being at two different stages of your life at once - it's like being two places at one time. Awkward moment: when you realize that the doctor sitting across from you actually knows more about fashion than you do. Karl Lagerfeld what what?

I have Selena Gomez's "Love You Like a Love Song" stuck in my head on re-peat-peat-peat-peat

Oh goodness, when that song first came out, it was stuck in my head for days, haha. Very catchy! The combination of leather and tulle is nice (I can't believe that it was warm enough to wear this!) and like the silhouette it gives a lot. Hope that the interview went well and good luck with your last semester! xx

Hi Angie! ^_^ I know how you feel! Congrats on this being your last semester!! I also had interviews during my last semester in college and it was fun and so weird :p

I love the very opposite textures you're wearing. It's clever!

I believe polar opposites is the way to go, indeed.:) I love the little jewelry they make the outfit even more feminine that the tutu skirt :D if it makes sense :D

I think the last time I tried polar opposites in a post- some people didn't like it. I personally love the contrast. You look adorable Angie!
