Wilted Scallops

     Yup, you guessed it, another outfit featuring yet another item with... wait for it... scalloped detailing! I can't help it, I'm addicted. I actually wore this a few weeks back and just discovered the pics while I was clearing out my camera's SD card. I actually really liked this outfit, so I'm surprised that a potential OOTD post almost slipped through my grasp.

White cardigan (H&M), frilled scoop-neck top (F21), scalloped-hem skirt (F21), beaded necklace (Rope Picnic Japan), floral-pattern nude mesh tights (Celine)
     I really do love the skirt; it looks great in the pics and it's actually very slimming, and, of course, the scalloped hemlines are adorable. Unfortunately, the skirt, or at least the back of it, wrinkles. A LOT. The shiny fabric is quite thin and flimsy, and just a few moments of perching carefully on a chair resulted in quite a few creases and crinkles. I really really hate wrinkles, though for the sake of practicality I do put up with them to a point. But this skirt was pushing it, which is a shame since it really is very nice... at least from the front view. It, and its green dotted sibling, seems to be pretty popular in the blogosphere, and I can see why, but I'm going have to work on accepting the wrinkling. But regardless, I did really enjoy this outfit; it was the first time I wore my teal beaded necklace, which I now wear all the time, as well as the first time I wore my Celine mesh tights (yup, that Celine; in Japan all the major design houses sell hosiery, handkerchiefs, etc. for very reasonable prices... I think the tights were about $8). So all in all, it was a good day!
