This post was inspired in part by Every Body, Every Wear and in part because I haven’t worn this green lace top in quite some time. I bought it from an LA boutique in 2007; the label is “The Origine.”
I was drawn to the top because of the aqua-colored panels with the cherry blossom print, the green lace, the soft material, and the light pink ribbon detail.
I’ve worn it maybe eight times (cost/wear = $45/8 = $5.62). The last time I wore it and had a picture taken of me wearing it was last year during a dinner with some law school buddies. I paired it with my robin’s egg blue cardigan and jeans (I think the same ones I’m wearing above – GLO jeans that I bought from Marshall’s). Though not shown in the picture below, I believe I’m also wearing the same pumps as above (faux lizard skin pumps from Payless circa 2007).
In 2007, I paired the green lace top with jeans again and pointy-toed patent nude/beige pumps:
(I would make this picture bigger, but the resolution’s awful.)

Any suggestions on other ways to wear this top aside from pairing it with jeans?
This is also my first outfit for the 30 for 30 Remix Challenge. I still haven’t figured out what my 30 items will be, but 4 are down: 1) Green H&M cardigan, 2) Green lace top, 3) GLO jeans, and 4) Payless faux lizard skin pumps. Only 26 more items to choose!
Lastly, Steph decided that this outfit is going to be Outfit Number 1 for her 30 for 30:
Details of her outfit will soon be forthcoming!
