Annebeth 's thoughts:

Nothing feels like summer to me than wearing a retro inspired feminine outfit in light hues. The skirt is actually this dress I wore with the top part tucked in and with a belt to keep it in place. The bustiertop was one of the bustiers I tried on a while ago but dismissed on finding the fit really awkward. I ended up buying it today after seeing it was only 7 euro in the sales, and decided I could make it work. I removed the boning and took it in a bit and I don’t mind the fit now. Not perfect, but it’ll do. I just love the seersucker fabric, the straps that cross in the back and the pinstripes too much to pass up on it! The shoes are my fave summershoes at the moment, I wish I had those indestructible feet that supermodels and Barbie seem to have, so I could wear skyscraper heels every single day! And I don’t need to tell you why I love the hat, it’s just perfect in every single way.

Work has been kicking my butt so I’m really really sorry to not be able to post as much text as I usually do. I don’t like it either :( I have been loving the things we get in our store’s new late summer/fall collection: lots of floral, lots of stripes, lots of military and lots of nautical. Very cute combination and wearing all those prints and details definitely cheers you up when you’ve got fall’s gloom leaning over your shoulder.

Oh and yesterday’s look was my first look in ages that didn’t make it to the style gallery :( I’m really not loving the new rules for the style gallery, it takes too much effort for people who just don’t have the time or means to take perfect pictures or comment on 300 people every single day :( And those that do get in don’t seem to get as many comments or votes as they used to get either, I don’t get it.

lovely feminine style that suits you so perfectly... i agree with you about the style gallery, when I could have had the chance to get a few pics up in the style gallery before, now that has become totally impossible and it feels like it has discouraged many a chictopian... :(

I always love your pictures and your style is so fun! Yeah my post didn't make it in either and I'm so confused about the new rules because they don't alert anyone about new changes! I feel like if it's not in the gallery, less people can see the posts and what's the fun in that?
