Stray Cats

This year, I've been challenging myself to embrace new fashion elements and remix items I've showed on my blog in the past. I initially styled this Stray Cats blouse with cute leggings-style pants, but I really hated how it looked in photos. So instead, I decided to style my lavender Jenny dress as a skirt and pair it with this top! It's a really easy way to remix pieces and a layered blouse can be a great alternative to a cardigan. I just tied the bottom of the shirt to make it a bit more cropped and rolled it under and up to my waist before hiding the bulky portions with a wide black belt. I do this all the time and it instantly doubles my wardrobe!

I tend to have trouble with button-down shirts (fellow well-endowed girls will understand), but I ended up really liking this top from Sourpuss Clothing. I sized up to the XL to accommodate my chest, and I found the fit to be nice overall. The design is super cute (I have a thing for puff sleeves), and of course, I enjoy the fact that it's Stray Cat-themed. I wouldn't say I'm an extremely knowledgeable of the Stray Cats, but I like their stuff a lot. I also just realized that they were in one of my favorite childhood movies (a really obscure film called Mother Goose Rock 'n Rhyme)! I have a very eclectic taste in music – thanks, Mom and Dad! – but I definitely have a connection with rockabilly. I have this fantasy of being in a rockabilly-style band someday... maybe it'll happen down the line.

I was so hopeful that spring was here, but this weekend was SO cold! We had a crazy wind storm last week, and now there's fresh snow on the ground. I know that's typical for March here in Rochester, but I'm sick of staying indoors. On the bright side, it gave me the chance to list a bunch of stuff in my Shop My Closet store (there's still a bunch of great stuff up for grabs – don't forget, you can use the code SOUBRETTE10 for 10% off!). I think it's supposed to warm up a bit this week, so I'm hoping I can spend at least a little time outside. Have a great start to your week!

  2. I love how you restyled this top with a Jenny dress! It makes the harder rockabilly look of the top and makes it a little more feminine.
