wrinkly woes

Pants- GAP (thrifted); Top- Banana Republic (gifted) ; Heels, Sunglasses & Purse- Aldo; Headband- Goody; Necklace- Gifted
Because sometimes a gal doesn't feel like ironing! This beautiful silk top was gifted to me by my fashionable friend ML of Twenty York Street and I wanted to get some wear out of it before the Labour Day ban on white (which I tend to ignore by the way!) My iron is old and rusty so I didn't want to risk staining the top so went with the wrinkly look, hoping that it looked like the style of the shirt (did it work?) I paired the top with my favourite pair of GAP pants that I thrifted for $5.99.  I love their wide legs and subtle pin stripes (which in photos look like a psychodelic 70s pattern but I can ensure you that they are not!) I added yellow and gold accessories for just a hint of colour.  It feels like the last few days of summer are upon us so I plan on squeezing as much whites, brights and lights into my wardrobe as I can over the next few weeks!

Jewellery (L-R): Aldo; Gifted; A SweeT Boutique (snake) & Fossil (watch)

What's with the pigtails you might ask? Well this my friends is my 'just got back from sweating at the gym and haven't taken a shower look'...charming I know (but c'mon we've all been there!)

My favourite thing about the top is the feminine detailing on the back. 
This outfit reminds me of this look I wore during the summer edition of 30x30. 

Here's to a fabulous weekend! Tonight I'm off to Ariana Assadi's Beauty Gala and will live tweeting from my personal account @tinfoilstiaras !

  3. Simply adorable! I loved the wrinkled silk top. Are the pants pinstriped? Maybe it's the camera, but the pattern looks a little trippy. I like them. :)

  4. It really does look like a crinkle top and not just wrinkled. I love it like that.

    I bought a steamer last year and I love love love it. I got this one http://www.bedbathandbeyond.com/product.asp?SKU=17722107 and I love it. Way better than ironing.

    You look super cute. Love the pants as well.

  6. i would have thought your top was supposed to be wrinkled! it's a beautiful feminine piece and i love the detailing on the upper back. i don't even own an iron! i use a travel size steamer to get the worst wrinkles out and just wear everything a little unperfect, i like it that way

    thanks for stopping by my blog and enjoy your weekend!
