Quite unfortunately, I had only 17 minutes last Wednesday to pop into VV Boutique and look around. I was on the hunt for something with lace and chambray. Oh chambray... I covet thee. Well, the lace hunt revealed one dirty blouse (couldn't do it) and the chambray hunt revealed...
Talbots dark chambray $7 VV Boutique
No, I did not have time to try this gem on. Yes, I was scared that by wearing Talbots I might instantly age 25 years...
Tonight, I had exactly 7 minutes to get ready including hair, make-up, clothes, and photos. I knew that chambray was heading out with me one way or another and here's the way I managed in one minute:
Black dress from Winners $35 circa 2009, green pointy flats circa 2007
Flatter Me belt from C'est Cera $40
A word about my photographer... I love my husband but he is famous for taking great photos of moss and flowers. Together, we are destined for fashion stardom.
I did manage to throw on some antique-ish chandelier earrings and my fuchsia bag added another pop of colour. Not the most exciting ensemble but I dare you to come up with something better quicker!
I don't know if it was the open shirt, the belt or what, but two people complimented me on how good I looked so I call that a chambray success!
I am still on the hunt for a lighter chambray with a more tailored fit, but in the meantime I plan to use this incredible post as inspiration on how to wear my chambray. Heather Smith of The Smith's Blog features TWENTY ONE different ways to wear a chambray shirt! Are you inspired?? I sure am! That is a lot of fun for $7 at VV Boutique!
