Outfitting: Reflections...from Wednesday

It took me so long to figure out how to wear this darn top from J.Crew. I bought it because I fell in love with the ruffles and pintucks, and because it was made of silk, and because this color was on sale for half the price of the normal colors (blue, black, etc.). And so it sat in my closet for probably two years, and I tried to get rid of it a few times, but had no takers.

I knew I had to pair it with either gray or other stark neutral, and finally decide to try it tucked into a skirt. Lo and behold, it worked pretty well, sort of like an updated take on Park Avenue 'princess' style. Got lots of comments on it!
