Lemon Drop Candy


If you think the pretty lemon yellow, billowy skirt is a little bit old-fashioned, you're right! It's vintage, and it was Mom's at her younger days. The first time I found it when runsacking my Mom's closet, I liked it but didn't know what to pair it with. Now I do! I also wore it in this post. Ow, and can you guess that the striped top was from my high school years? The oldie but the goodie.






Skirt: vintage, Mom's. Top: Hi-Sun (USA). Navy jacket: Anne Klein. Earrings and necklace: unbranded. Bracelet: gift. Kitten heels: Symbolize. Bag: Elle.

Ow, and I got featured in My Greatest Hits' ABC Challenge! It was from G is for Glam challenge, and I was soooo excited since the sequin bag featured was considered a "wrong buy" by sooo many people, including my Mom! So, Mom, if you see this, your daughter knows how to pick a good purse, so don't worry, it was money well spent! ^__^
You can read the feature here and the original sequin bag post here.

So cute!!! your mom clearly had a sense for fashion too! :)

I wish my mom had kept her old stuff! (Then again, she's like 5 inches taller than me... so I'm not sure if it would have done me any good!)
