Outfit: One Top, Two Ways To Wear It

This pretty beaded top by GatsbyLady inspired two very similar outfits with completely different vibes, so I decided to style it both ways. One look felt like a great way to wear the beaded top in the daytime and the other was more playful, something perfect for a fun evening out. Both stuck to the basic color palette of pale pink and blue, or rose quartz and serenity if you're feeling trendy.

This is my "play" look. A slightly impractical but oh-so-fun tulle skirt and sweet mary jane shoes, kept slightly casual by a light wash denim jacket. I really like how soft and romantic this outfit came out, so perfect for spring dates! I think if I wore it out one evening I'd add some vintage brooches to the jacket to make it feel slightly dressier and a little more sparkly. This look reminds me of cotton candy; airy and sweet.
This is my "day" look; keeping some of the same pieces as the first, but switching my skirt for casual ripped white jeans allow the top really to shine--look at that beautiful beaded scalloped hem! All of Gatsbylady's creations are made in-house and that really shows when you look at the unique pieces they offer. Their designs are inspired by 1920s fashion and while they have the perfect flapper dress for your next Prohibition themed party, they also have quirky pieces you won't find at other retro shops--like my top. All the details of a beaded flapper dress but rendered in a sweet sleeveless top that can be worn outside of a themed party. The colors are also my favorite pastel combination, something about baby blue and pale pink just works so nicely together!
