Lilac Wine


Top- Forever 21
Skirt- Thrifted
Shoes- Steve Madden
Accessories- Betsey Johnson
Wallet- Urban Outfitters

I've pretty much accepted the fact that after 28 years I don't really pull off "sexy".  And I'm perfectly happy with that!  I choose to dress conservatively because I feel comfortable and I feel like it gives the correct impression.  Who wants to have all the goods out anyway?  I love wearing a high waist skirt and textured top, which in my eyes, is sexy without feeling insecure.

If you don't know already, every Betsey Johnson store is officially closed.  I'm sad that I will no longer be able to add to my collection of amazing dresses and accessories.  I guess the bright side would be that my stuff in a few years will actually be vintage :).  I don't think I'll have another designer obsession quite like Betsey, she really embodied my style!




  1. Bonjour Ashley, sur votre âge ne dites plus jamais cela votre compagnon pourrait vous croire! :-) non, vous êtes belle dans cette tenue, et la jeunesse est éternelle quand elle va avec l'Amour, je vous le souhaite;

  2. ah i love your blog <3 just emailed you!

  3. So sad about Betsey, urgh :(. I love this look. I can't do sexy either, and that's okay! You look beautiful anyway!

  4. You look so good in pink! I saw this top in Chicago and almost bought it. Now I really wish I did. It's so weird that Betsey went out of business. She's definitely eclectic and I'm sure in due time she'll be at it again.

  5. You look really pretty .. Its not necessary to look sexy always.. : )
