Mixing Femininity with Some Edgy Touches

I was just chilling at home, wandering the internet randomly and I was on Polyvore and this look was born. Lord knows I would never in a million years be able to walk in heels that thin and that high, but they do look fabulous, don`t they?

The pieces just sort of came together to form this look and while it might not (let`s be honest, it`s more a *definitely* not) be for work, this is something you could wear out to a casual/formal meal with friends. I picked the cropped sweater from Proenza Schouler for a few reasons. 1) I like the designer. 2) I like the whole cutout trend when it is done in a classy, not trashy fashion. 3) The cutouts on this cropped sweater come at the shoulders and I find that both demure and sexy at the same time in the best way. The skirt I picked because it was a large floral print I actually liked (I`m not a huge fan of prints of any size in general) and that it was Alice & Olivia was an important second. The dashes of green were added to break up the color monopoly of black, white and yellow. My overall intention was to make a look that was classy, but not prim and boring and same ol`, same ol`. I also kept the accessories to a minimum to better showcase the outfit without drowning in it in jewelry or other accoutrements.

The floral skirt is probably one of my favorite parts of this particular look because it`s supposed to be a full skirt and I do not know a woman alive who doesn`t enjoy swishing their skirt from time to time. :)

I welcome any comments and critiques on the post, since fashion is in the eye of the beholder and no one has the same outlook as the person before or after them.
