Damask Me!

Outfit Details:
Sweater: TJ Maxx
Shirt: Downeast
Necklace: Thrifted
Skirt: Thrifted
Belt: TJ Maxx
I'm completely in love with the damask pattern. I have a homemade damask painting in my living room, even my wedding cake had damask. What can I say, if it ain't broke don't fix it.I saw this skirt in its full glory of plethory gold goodness and I knew I had to make that baby mine. Even though it was about 100 degrees I had to wear my beautiful goldilocks so I sacrificed my sanity for fashion. Beauty is pain my friends. Beauty is pain.

  1. Oh dear... I have this old damask curtain with blue-green shades and golden tones that I've been thinking of making into a shawl. It's a little heavy, but what the heck. It's gorgeous! :)

  5. Great, great sweater! Even better that it's from TJ MAXX!

    You're married?!? You look so young! :) Totally meant to be a compliment - but I sometimes get ID'd for silly things like lottery so I can see how it is annoying!

  16. I went through a severe obsession with damask in the beginning of '09, and I even wanted to decorate my room with it, but I just couldn't find much with the pattern. It didn't take long, now I feel like it's everywhere! I'm glad to know I wasn't alone in my obsession :)

    You look so darling!

  19. Oh I love Damask as well - I was very close to wall papering my entire bedroom with a black and white pattern!

    Also, your outfit posts are so fun. I love how you end every photo shoot with a really fun candid pic. My favorite outfit is the one with the giant bow on your shoulder!
