This is an outfit I created a long time ago but I still love it! That's rare for me!  I get sick of things really quickly! That's why I'm afraid to get a tatoo! I first wore this outfit on a date with my hubby. He picked this jacket out when we were shopping at Forever 21 one day so I knew he liked it! Well, I ran into an old friend that night who said my jacket looked like Beetlejuice! (good friend, I know, right?) That was several years ago and I hadn't worn it much after that until I saw the Spring/Summer 2013 runways:

 Marc Jacobs
 Haider Ackerman
 Dolce & Gabbana
 Kasia Struss
Oscar De La Renta

and also a few similar looks from Tommy Hilfiger, Moschino, and  Fausto Puglisi but I think you get the point- black and white stripes are totally in and it seems like the bolder the better! So what do you think? Beetlejuice or Beautiful?

  6. I can't believe what an awesome blazer that is! So chic and freaking looking like it came off the runway!

  7. I love that combination. Not Beetlejuice at all. That friend of yours it not particularly nice!

  8. This outfit is so chic and smart. I love the prints and the prices!


  9. I love the black and white stripes with the red.

  11. this outfit looks so much fun, i love it. really bold!


  12. Can't it be both??? I love that it's sort of beetlejuice but still amazing! I love that you pulled all of those S/S13 runway inspirations too, it's so gratifying when you save something like that and it becomes really in demand later on!

  13. Fabulous! What a great job you do!

  15. The stripes look great on you! (And Beetlejuice is a really good movie.)

  16. Well, despite the comment from that awkward little soul, I think this outfit is darling! I love the balance of florals and stripes, and the little ruffled top peeking out. And the finish of red shoes is so fun!!! ~Sarah

  17. That is such a great jacket - but I am drooling over the scarf and that perfect lipstick!
