(forever 21 ballet skirt, cashmere sweater c/o bebe, knee highs h&m, h&m lace moto, f21 shoes)
For their current blogger contest, bebe kindly sent me this lovely cashmere sweater to style and accessorize however I wanted. I was given a variety of sweaters to choose from, but I picked this classic black scoop neck because it's extremely versatile--the perfect layering piece for the season--and I rarely shy away from black... it's pretty much my go-to color--or non-color--of choice. What's more, this sweater has these adorable flecks of glitter on the sleeves & waist, although they don't come through well in the photos.
Ok, so a bit about this outfit: I feel like a modern day ballerina! When I was young I took tap and jazz lessons, but a ballerina I was not. I usually fare towards more edgy looks, but a girly, frilly look is nice for a change. Maybe I was influenced by the new Darren Aronofsky film, Black Swan? I haven't seen it yet, but I know it's recieving rave reviews, and I've always been a fan of his work, not to mention that of Natalie Portman, Mila Kunis and Winona Ryder.
