Today is my 24th birthday, and to celebrate, George Lucas has kindly put out another Star Wars movie for me. (Haha!) I'm going to see the movie tonight!
It is a lesser known fact that I was a HUGE Star Wars buff as a kid. I was Princess Leia for a good three Halloweens in a row, complete with a bun wig and a lightsaber... because obviously there needed to be some girl carrying one, even if there wasn't in the original three movies!
I LOVE this ensemble. Suspendered skirts are always a win in my book, and I like how this skirt is slim but doesn't have the undergarment-fussiness of a fitted pencil skirt. The sequin detailing and the perfectly 40s silhouette sealed the deal for me! I paired black with red accessories because it's one of my favorite color combos.
These red shoes are a recent purchase, and they're my FAVORITE SHOES I'VE EVER BOUGHT. They're platforms, they're red, they're 40s, they're my size. Check, check, check, check! I splurged on them and paid a bit more than I normally would, but considering I'll be buried in them, I think it's a good use of the money.
Then, to top it all off, Jacob gave me these earrings this morning before I left for work. They're a karat of diamonds and some other mysterious black gemstone that we haven't figured out yet. I have been wanting to add more studs to my jewelry box since my ears are double pierced--and more is more, in my opinion--so you'll probably be seeing these beauties often!
