Newcomers to the (Ef)Face: Check These Out!

NYFW Outfit Day 4

I had a tricky situation on hand this particular evening: I needed an outfit to go straight from church to drinks with friends at a casual pub.
Conclusion?  Skinnies and a blazer!  Works for everything.

Anna Dello Russo said: "There's nothing sexier than excess."  I decided to rock that vibe.  My outfit needed sprucing up since I went with all neutral colors, and I wanted to add some kind of trendiness to an otherwise classic look.

Rundown of the bling-bling:

Tiny angel on tip of lapel: gift (it's holding my birthstone) || All gold brooches: thrifted || Silver and Crystal brooch: handed down from my great-grandmother || Watch and Bangle: thrifted || Charm Bracelet: handed down from my grandmother

 Photo cred goes to my little brother.  He's always my best photographer!  :)  I gave him a hard time when he tilted the camera for the above shot, but look how cute it turned out!  Shows what I know, eh?  Thanks, boo!

Jewelry: see above || Skinnies: ELLE for Kohl's || Shoes: Dana Buchannan for Kohl's || Blazer: MaxRave || Scarf: thrifted || Clutch: thrifted || Sunglasses: Target

Thanks for reading!
