Bestie Borrow: L.A. {Part One}

Monday, February 27, 2012

What I'm Wearing:
Sweater: c/o ShopMamie (here)
Skirt: Forever 21 (remixed)
Belt: vintage
Necklace: self-made
Heels: Seychelles (similar here)

I was so excited when the ShopMamie girls chose my blog to participate in their "Bestie Borrow" style challenge! They sent me this unique dolman sweater top, and I had a lot of fun coming up with ways to style it. Plus, thanks to my boyfriend, I had the perfect event to wear this outfit to. After taking these photos in a nearby parking lot, Andrew and I ventured into Hollywood to a special press screening (one of the many perks of dating someone who works for the university newspaper!) of Wanderlust—which is hilarious and definitely worth seeing!

Anyway, the way that the "Bestie Borrow" style challenge works is that after I styled this sweater, I had to send it off to my best friend and have her style it as well. So, I decided to send it to my best friend Hayley, who is currently going to college in Seattle. Considering the huge differences in culture and weather between Los Angeles and Seattle, I thought it would be fun to see our different ways of styling the same item. Plus, who doesn't love an opportunity to send snail mail?

Check back soon for Part II of the "Bestie Borrow" style challenge: photos of Hayley's styled outfit in Seattle. (p.s. the skyline in her photos is far more impressive than the attempt I made at capturing the L.A. "skyline" in these pictures...)
