Style Inspiration by FFM: *Tickled Pink...*

Hello Everyone! Today's post continues an ongoing feature called *Style Inspiration by FFM*, where I will post one of my Polyvore set designs and include links to items you can purchase to re-create the look if you so choose. Some of the set designs will be outfits I am wearing or have worn in the past, others will be *reader request* sets, and some will simply be outfits I would love to wear. (If possible I try to include a *real life* photo of me in the outfit if it's something I'm wearing at the time. Of course my schedule doesn't always allow time for snapping a pic, but it is definitely something I hope to include more of with this feature in the future.)

Now on to today's *Style Inspiration by FFM*...this set is an outfit I wore back on 5.11.11 to a Girls' Nite out celebration for all of us with May birthdays. I also wore it on 6.10.11 for a trip to J.Crew and Anthropologie at the local mall. I named the set *Tickled Pink...*:

Tickled Pink...

The Details:

The pink Anthropologie Lengthening Rays Skirt was one of my birthday gifts. I purchased it using my Anthro birthday discount and absolutely adore it...the color is fabulous, the fabric is soft and flowy, PLUS it's fun to wear! I paired it with navy this time, but will also be wearing it with a white crewneck tee or my white J.Crew Perfect shirt for an outfit inspired by this Jil Sander look. :) (Similar skirt here (in Pink) and here (in Melon.)

My top is the J.Crew Perfect-Fit Tank in Navy. These tanks are great for wearing under cardigans and jackets, as well as on their own during the warmer weather months.  (Similar here and here.)


The necklace uses the 32" chain from my J.Crew Butterfly Necklace and my Diamonique pendant that was purchased many years ago. (Similar pendant here and here.)

My Monet Gold Hoop Earrings were purchased at Macy's last year. They aren't available online, but you can find similar options here and here.

The gold oversized watch is from Target and is a great less-expensive alternative to this one from Michael Kors. It runs large, but I had a jeweler remove a couple of the links and it's now a perfect fit. I love it AND the price! :)

My Perfect Crystal Bold Stretch Bracelet is a favorite piece of mine. It is comfortable to wear, good quality, and reasonably priced. (Similar here and here.)


The sandals were purchased at LOFT two years ago on super sale, and you can see from the pic that I have worn them a lot. They are the Serena Mini-stud Sandals in White, but I also own them in Black with Gold Mini-studs and Gold with Gold Mini-studs. They are so incredibly comfortable and another great purchase...CPW (Cost Per Wear) must be in the negative amount by now. I'm not sure if you could find them on Ebay, but this pair (in White) and this pair (also in White) may work as an alternative for you.

 
My Large Metallic Thompson Tote was purchased from J.Crew a couple years ago. I don't carry it often during the winter months, but it gets plenty of use during the spring and summer. It is a bright yellow gold that actually works well as a great neutral for all the prints and color I wear during those seasons. I also like the way it coordinates and almost *matches* most of my yellow gold jewelry pieces. (Every now and then the bag will show up for sale on Ebay, or there are similar options here and here in Gold.)


That's it for now! Have a lovely day! :)

xoxo,
