Sparkling Cranberry

Sweater: thrifted
Necklace: My So Called Vintage giveaway
Skirt: BCBG Max Azria
Tights: Anthropologie sale bin
Shoes: thrifted

I feel like I should be wearing this to a holiday party because it reminds me of sparkling cranberry juice with the pink foam rising up. I guess it’s also kind of like a glass of just-poured red wine with bubbles at the top.

This skirt got on my bad side today because part of the hem fell out in front. I bought it at a sample sale, but STILL, I don’t think that should have happened the second time I wore it. It’s one of those hems where you can’t see the stitching on the outside, too, so I don’t think I can just fix it myself without making the skirt look weird. For now I’m using a piece of packing tape to hold it up. 


  1. Ha, I totally wore cranberry today too. Great minds! Anyway, I love this color combination and your owl necklace :)

  2. I really like these colors together. That sucks about the hem of your skirt, but doing an invisible hem is pretty easy. Google it! If I can do it, you definitely can.

  3. Love the color blocking and that necklace is so cute!

  4. these are such pretty colors on you and they compliment each other so nicely. Hats off to you for going all Maguyver on your skirt and using tape to hold it

  5. HORRIFYING i can't believe that, jeez i own skirts from the 60s that still hold up.

    You look lovely regardless

  6. so lovely... :)


  7. I love the colors too. They are some of my favorite to wear. And the owl. Yay!

  8. i second the recommendation to fix the hem. if you have a sewing machine with multiple stitches, invisible hems will be a cinch!


  9. I love the colour combination...it makes me think of pink champagne :) I'm useless at sewing too but there's an iron on hem you can get called wonderweb or something like that & it's amazing! No needles, thread or skill required :)

  10. OK so apparently my feed wasn't working and I've missed a ZILLION ENTRIES, so pardon if all these comments show up from me now!

    I love the necklace with this outfit. I love that you are wearing more jewelry! So pretty.

  11. I like your sweater, have amaizng color;)
