Romantic Clothes!

Pin It Now!

Last weekend Lauren wanted to go to the mall.  I wasn't planning on buying a thing but I followed her into Charlotte Russe which is not a store I usually shop in.  Next thing I know I see a rack with lace so I head straight over there!  Well...I fell in love with this lace vest!  It is adorable with a white tank top and jeans! I can hardly wait for the weather to warm up a little so I  can wear it!  The best part, it was on sale but I didn't know that until I went up the the cash register. It was normally $24 but I think I only paid $17! 
I must be on a lace clothing kick because I orderd this top below online from Boston Proper last week and just got it in the mail yesterday. I didn't have a chance to take a pic of mine so I'm showing you the catalog photo... I love this top! There are about a million other things I want from Boston Proper...I love their clothes!  Since I've lost so much weight I actually need to buy clothes! Haha...you like how I justify that?
Lauren and I stopped in Marshalls the other day and I found these adorable Betsey Johnson shoes on the clearance rack!  Only $29!!!! Unheard of for Betsey Johnson.  They are a little big, but only about 1/2 size but for that price I'm fine with that!
I love the hot pink underneath! So Chic!

Your tops and shoes are so cute and you have such pretty feet!

Oh how very cute! Love the tops & shoes. Cindy, thank you for your great blog. So many of us enjoy it. Also, your hiking blog is wonderful as well. You have been hiking up on my favorite trails, close to my home.
All the best,

So very feminine! I haven't been to the mall for awhile,(I used to work there). I forgot about Charlotte Russe.....

Crystal said...

I actually LOATHE the mall, but once in awhile I go (about 2-3 times per year) and find some cute stuff in Charlotte Russe. White House/Black Market is also another store I love! Looks like you found some fun stuff! (*_*)

Sandy said...

I love your lace tops and the bows on your shoes! I can't wear high heels (never could even when I was younger) but bows on any type of shoe is sooo cute!

Amy @MaisonDecor said...

I love all of your new finds Cindy. I once scored a Betsey Johnson black trench with a tiny rose print lining and, heart buttons, and a black bow on the back of the coat. I LOVE her style! Lucky you to be losing weight, the hiking is getting you in shape.

Amanda said...

Ooooh...I am a sucker for lacey tops too! Nice finds! I've been pleasantly surprised by some romantic style clothing at Charlotte Russe as well!
Best Wishes and Blessings,

OMG Cindy you will look like a star in those sexy clothes. I love both tops and both will look so good with jeans. You will be one hot chick in all that lace and those shoes are to DIE for. Just put a half sole in the shoes.

Oh that lace top and vest are so pretty! I love the shoes too but I've never neen able to keep mules like that on my feet. Strange to call something so dainty a mule huh? *winks* Vanna

Pauline said...

Some really lovely finds. Your shoes being big is good - better than being '2 hour shoes'. 2 hours being how long before your eyes starts to water, lol.

Debbie B said...

Those shoes are TOOOOOOO Cute! Love them.

Mary Ellen said...

Oh I love that lace top!! I would love to find something like that for that great price too!! Lace just speaks spring to me!

Carolyn said...

I love them both!

I love feminine, girly clothes. I especially love the vest! I just need to be as good as you and lose weight now. I have gained 20 pounds! *CRY*

Your photographs are so beautiful. I have been a bit attached to lace myself lately and love your Charlotte Russe find! It's interesting how this lovely material is so versatile, with such an interesting history. cafecremebrulee.blogspot.com

I love the lace top from Boston Proper, I haven't shopped there before. I'll have to check them out. We have a Marshalls/Home Goods here and it's a dangerous place. I can always find something I want there!

I love lace! It just makes one feel so girly. If we had a Charlotte Russe anywhere nearby I'd be checking out that vest.

Cindy @ LeChaiseParfait said...

I love that vest it is so special. I wish I could wear something like that everyday.

Cindy ~ My Romantic Home said...

Thanks everyone! Yes, Mary those are my toes! I would never make it as a foot model with that extra long second toe! haha! I got a pedi a couple weeks ago and I never get hot pink polish but for some reason I did and it worked out perfectly for these shoes!

Roselle said...

My teenager and I LOVE Charlotte Ruse! That vest is gorgeous!

“Fashion for women is not something that exists in dresses only. Fashion is in the sky, in the street, fashion has to do with ideas, the way we live, what is happening.” That's a nice quote from Coco Chanel and reminds us of how we should dress in society, when going to work, dinner, dance party, etc. You have to maintain a professional look & attitude at all times to be successful in the corporate world, this is for both men & women.
