Lookbook: Wings

First of all, thank you so much for all the birthday wishes, here, on email and over twitter!  I had such a great birthday weekend and it’s extending into this week too because we all enjoy extended birthdays right? ๐Ÿ™‚

I’m all about lace for the fall so was delighted when Threadsense sent over this top.  It’s cute on it’s own, but I wanted to dress it up for the fall.  I never buy sweaters from Forever 21 because I always find that they get so misshapen even after one wear which I think happened to this sweater.  I only wore it once and hated how it looked on me but I think I kept it around because I liked the color.  I remember reading on Love Maegan that she had cut up a v-neck sweater down the middle to make it into a cardigan and decided that is exactly what this sweater needed. 

What I’m Wearing:
Top: Gift from Threadsence*
Cardigan: Forever 21
Nail Polish: OPI Parlez-Vous OPI?

Madewell Legging Jeans

I love love these jeans.  They are most definitely my newest favorite and plan on getting another pair in a different color.  I got mine at Madewell, but I just saw that Shopbop has them on sale for $66.50!  I didn’t even know that Shopbop sold Madewell.  Anyway, I linked to the shopbop ones if you want to check them out!

    LOVE this outfit Tiffany! It's probably one of my favorites! That purple really looks great on you. Mmm? The link for the madewell jeans on Shopbop are $95? I couldn't find the sale. I've been wanting to try Madewell jans since I hear the fits are absolutely incredible!

    Love the new top! It's so fun. And I'm totally interested in these Madewell jean leggings, but I noticed the inseam is 32". I'm only 5'1"! Do you usually hem your skinny jeans/denim leggings or do you just fold and/or scrunch them up??

    YAY! Sounds like your birthday 'week' has been great! That's so awesome.

    Good call on cutting the sweater – I remember seeing that post, thanks for the reminder ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Love the new shirt and what a great idea about making a cardigan from an old sweater, I may have to try that!

    Vivian – oh sorry! only the "anvil wash" is $66.50, I didn't notice that the black was still $95. Thanks for pointing that out.

    Nancy – I get all my jeans hemmed. I never mention it because I'm so used to it. I buy pants and they immediately go to my alterations lady! So yes, they are hemmed. However, I think that since these are a stretchy material, they would work fine folded underneath as well.

    Isn't Madewell a JCrew brand? I just got their jeggings and I really like them, but the waist is a little lower than I like. Where does the waist of the Madewell pair sit?

    Also saw the Steve Madden has a similar shoe at Nordstrom last week, but only $89. I'm hoping they look good and are comfortable – I'm way cheaper with my shoe purchases!

    What a great idea to change your sweater to a cardigan. I really like the lace top.
    I hope it comes back in stock, since it's sold out. :/
