Speedbump 's thoughts:

In this outfit, I’ve tried to mix vintage and modern together.

The blouse is vintage and so are the brooch and belt. Most everything else is kind of vintage-inspired though, except for the skirt, which I think is pretty modern with all the kind of sculptural vertical ruffles. Maybe the bag leans modern too, though it does remind me a bit of a bowling bag.

I do like the brooch as a kind of bow/tie/something though. Adds a bit of a vintage-inspired modernity, if you know what I mean. I’ll probably be doing more of this in the future.

Sorry I’ve been neglecting the blog lately :( Seems I have other things to work on, and interning at Chictopia is about all I can handle of Chictopia for the time being. I’ve been taking outfit photos and just not posting them out of laziness and such. Sigh.

I’m sleepy now. And I forgot until it was over that there was a Death Cab concert at the Greek Theater today, which I’d been intending to overhear on the hill behind the stadium. :(

I love what you did with the brooch! Now that's something useful I can do with the brooches I have. And lovely outfit by the way. It's quite a nice assemble, both vintage and modern. =)

I know what you mean! I have tons of brooches but never really wear them, so I've been trying to figure out what to do with them, haha.

Love the skirt! I wanted to get it but I had to resist spending too much at H&M. The brooch is very vintage-y and I love the way you wore it!

I know what you mean. I always spend way too much $$ at H&M. But I just really loved the ruffles. I actually have this skirt in pink too. ^_^;;;
