Wallis In Wonderland

Recently, clothing company Wallis contacted me to be part of their Summer Stylist contest on Facebook. 

The contest, which starts today, runs through June 30, and you can vote once a day here on Facebook.

The good people at Wallis were kind enough to gift me with three items, which I will be styling in a few posts between now and the end of the contest. The first is the blouse I'm wearing here, which I LOVE.

I don't mind telling you, this color looks FAB-U-LOUS on me. I'm not being arrogant, it's just a cold hard fact. And can I tell you that my favorite detail is that beaded cuff? Guh.  

It made me think of a someone throwing a cocktail party in the 1960s, and I wanted to honor that, but an updated version, which is why I paired it with these silver brocade shorts (from The Limited several years back).

The shirt can be worn untucked, but my shorts were loose enough that I felt like it was too much fabric to not at least tuck the front in. I still love the way the sides hang longer, and the drape of the blouse is fab. Can't wait to try it with my white skinnies, and my black leatha pencil skirt. 

Of COURSE I paired it with my silver Target pumps (which are probably my best buy of the spring, and the item I get the most compliments on - seriously - I had a lady pull up next to me in the parking lot to tell me she liked them). 

Anyhoozle - I would be ever so grateful if you would click here and cast a vote for me. And then tomorrow, and the next day, and so on, and so on...Thank you kindly!!
