If It Makes You Happy

UO top_Vintage bracelets

Urban Renewal shirt, Silence & Noise bodysuit, pants and boots via Urban Outfitters. Topshop bag. Guess belt. Vintage bracelets

I was looking for a long-sleeve denim shirt and this bleached chambray one from Urban Outfitters fits the bill perfectly.  It’s super comfy and the bleached look puts a twist on what I had originally set out to find.

Thank you to the amazing and globetrotting Haute World for giving me an award.  Also, I won this pair of lovely candleholders from The Inglenook Decor as part of a giveaway by the fabulous ladies behind BonBon Rose.  Thanks so much!

Hope you all had a great weekend!  I saw The September Issue and absolutely loved it.  To be immersed in that creative world for a little over an hour-and-a-half was fascinating and I only wanted to see more after the last scene.

    You look so lovely in these pictures – I’m obsessed with your bag. It actually reminds me quite a bit of the Christopher Kane for Topshop Eyelet Bag I have been coveting for the past 48 hours.

    Unfortunately, none of the theaters near me are showing The September Issue, so I will have to wait for it’s debut on DVD. 😦

    OOooooh AND About Happiness, your “Radiant BOMBnextDoor”‘s Smile is simply full of such communicative virtues !!!
    ps: Mmmh Actually I really like the chromatic cocktail RED boots/GLAMorous nail polish, exquisitely “Fetishistic” . . .
    Hope you’re Well Dear.

    i love this outfit! especially that topshop bag.

    and to answer your question, my hair has slight waves when it gets long, but i got a digital perm last summer so i don’t have to mess with my hair. i got sick of having to purposely make my waves look like waves instead of a mop haha.

    Hi there!
    1. I’m completely in lust with your bag.
    2. You have reaaally nice teeth. That may be a weird thing to say, (it is) but I work at a dental office, so I’m cursed to notice people’s teeth ALL the time. haha.
    3. Great outfit, great hair, per usual!
    4. xoxo

      Thanks so much! I can’t believe you just said that.. I’m actually going to the dentist tomorrow and I think I have a cavity or two! Eeek. I’m scared b/c I hate going to the dentist. And I have my braces to thank for my straight teeth. 🙂 Thanks again Esther!

      xo, Becs

    Love this look! The denim shirt and the boots are the perfect touch to the all-black outfit. And I’m loving the studded bag as well! The Topshop version is my favorite by far (I’ve seen a few others in Zara etc.). I think I’m the only one who hasn’t checked out the September Issue yet. Must see it asap!
