Outfit Post - Flowers and Fluffy Stuff

I know on Fridays I normally do a post about how to style a certain piece five ways, but I have been going back through some of our photos and realized I hadn't posted this outfit yet! Shame on me! This is guiltiest pleasure from American Apparel.  This top haunted me for a few months before I gave in, rushed back to the store, and bought this beauty! In this particular post, I paired it with my fabulous leather shorts from Topshop while bought on vacay to London. (I want to go back sooooo bad) I have the travel bug REALLY bad lately.  I love the look of the feminine top paired with the mini leather shorts.
Since having the travel bug, my husband and I were dying to go to Vegas this weekend, but the flights were crazy expensive, so we settled on driving to our state's capital Austin, Texas! I will be posting our weekend adventure and of course taking video on this new flip camera! You will also see my new haircut in these pictures.  Did I mention I cut 5 inches off the back!?? I know it is a big deal I guess! So, stay tuned!
Now onto the outfit!

Happy Friday All!!

OK. I just commented on your previous post, but obviously you are THAT good and you have these posts just rolling through.

Damn, I need to learn a thing or two from you.

OK, and secondly - I am in absolute LOVE luhvee lurvee looovvveee (love spelled four ways, btw) with this top. I have eyed it SO many times over at the AA website and have been waiting for a sale price. Nada. And I think I should just say "screw it" and go for the gold. You look amazing. Your cousin takes the most insane pictures of you. I think I could sit here and stare at those circle-y flowers all day.

OK, I am totally going to leave before I freak anyone out. As if I haven't already done that.

I miss you love!!

You have this gorgeous Top Angela. :) I saw it so many times on the photos and ads and on bloggers...but for some reason I did not think it's really my style. :) It looks absolutely gorgeous on you and you styled it just right. And once again Shan Renee is a genius. :)

Hey, rock-star! Everything about this outfit screams glamour. Can I have your autograph, please?

I love the flowery top, leather mini, chic shoes and big hoop-earrings. Even your hair and makeup contribute to the look and are impressive. I'm searching the photos for signs of paparazzi following you...

I can see why you went mad for that top - the detail on it is amazing. And Topshop is great, I'd miss it if I left England, although all my stuff is now through eBay or the charity shops.

Perfect top. I am a bit on the busty side so have my doubts how much would it fit me, but still love it completely. Specially with these shorts. Hit once again! :-)))
