Today's Everyday Fashion: Ruffles and Leather

Inspiration:  Pinterest

It's 4 a.m. and I've been staring at my computer screen for 16 hours straight. My computer ate some of the work for the charity closet sale so I was scrambling in the hours leading up to it. Then the response (on Facebook) was awesome so it took almost 4 hours to respond to all the requests. I listed 102 items and 90% sold - woo hoo!

Before I get some much needed sleep, my abbreviated thoughts on today's outfit: this inspiration photo is everything, I love it. Mixing a feminine dress I'd never think to wear casually with a masculine leather jacket that's one of my favorites in my closet = a win. And finally, I thought I had done such a great job of tucking my scarf neatly, but really it kind of looks like a loose neck brace. I am hopeless. :-) 

Jacket: Banana Republic, $150
Dress: Varga c/o, old (similar, similar)
Scarf: so old I don't recall
