Whenever there is an Isabel Lu sale on Gilt Groupe or HauteLook I am the first to check it out. I really like her skirts and dresses. I had passed on these scalloped shorts the first time around when I saw them on HauteLook. They came in black and olive. I passed on them merely because the fabric was mostly polyester. Well, a month or so later HauteLook had a blowout sale on Isabel Lu clothing where everything was super cheap. When there is a blowout sale it is nearly impossible to get anything you actually want into your cart as people can hold items for 15 minutes at a time. Well, these scallop shorts got marked down to $28! It was a steal and there was something I liked about them the first time and when I saw them again I thought I could definitely take the risk. Well, I have to say I was wrong. The shorts are almost shiny and soft and so gorgeous. It taught me a lesson about judging something merely on the fabric. I ended up getting both the olive and black color scallop shorts for a mere $56 total. I love Isabel Lu's designs as they are always so girly and feminine. Giuliana Rancic was spotted wearing these shorts in olive and she paired them with a sequin jacket. I will have to try that out next time when I wear the green ones.
I was feeling a church vibe with this outfit when I put on the Betsey Johnson silk chiffon blouse complete with pearl buttons. My boyfriend laughed at me when I said you could wear this to church because the blouse is so see through. Maybe I am out of touch? I was getting a little goofy during this shoot with the poses. I really love this shirt and it sold out pretty quickly on Gilt Groupe last year. It is very victorian looking and I love the lace hem detailing. Betsey Johnson makes some cute stuff once in a while and I still have this gorgeous Bambi dress I have to show you. I wore my Alejandro Ingelmo black patent pumps for a slimming look with the black opaque tights. I always want to wear pumps with tights, but sometimes it just isn't practical as the pumps slip due to the tights.
