Edgy luxe/killer twee: pussy bow blouse, leather skirt and studded flats

Speaking of pussy bow blouses...I went crazy for the pussy bow blouse when I first joined YLF five years ago. I had at least five! They fit perfectly with my demure bombshell style. But I haven't been wearing them lately because I felt like my style was moving in a slightly darker, edgier direction. Angie's post was a good reminder that the pussy bow blouse can still be cool!

This blouse was my favorite and was part of my "signature outfit" (http://goldenpig.lookfab.com/p.....ure-outfit) which was the outfit that I thought best defined my style (6/7). In fact I made it my profile pic and haven't changed it for the last five years! Well I pulled out the blouse and skirt to wear them in honor of Angie's post and was embarrassed to find out that the skirt no longer fits. I've gained 15 lb since then, and the skirt shows off my food baby in all its glory. I had a few moments of pity party and almost put the shirt back in shame, but then picked myself up and made it work. I picked a black leather flared skirt and studded stingray pointy black flats, my black Belle (I love the red lining and red edge leather trim), and pearl and gold spike bracelet. I think I actually like this version better! Classic with a bit of edge. Seems my style is going more from boho luxe to edgy luxe. What do you think, did I rescue this blouse, and is it finally time to update my profile pic?

ETA: And is this the "killer twee" that Angie and Xtabay were talking about? Because pussy bow blouses are definitely twee. I think I'm going to have to embrace this new moniker!

    Edgy luxe is a perfect style descriptor for you. This is a stunning outfit... upscale and ladylike, yet very cool.

    Shirt saved! I love it all especially the edgy luxe descriptor.

  • Angie replied 10 months ago

    I LOVE your attitude, Natalie. People can learn from you. You are inspiring. 

    I remember that signature outfit! I think you MORE than rescued the pussy bow blouse, and look Killer in the updated version. DS2 is as cute as it gets.

    Nice!  I think this version looks perfectly updated.  I love the skirt silhouette and your shoes in this version.

    NAILED it. And OMG, love your attitude. You rock!! This is a killer outfit on you. And updated, too!

    Look at you. THAT is the way to do it! Remember, constraints inspire creativity. And that's exactly what it did here - I think this outfit is much more you now than the one from a few year ago! Bravo!

    YES, killer twee!  It's so killer that it might actually be killing me -- in a good way.  :)  Keep it coming, it's an inspiration.

  • Kaelyn replied 10 months ago

    Killer Twee all the way.  You look awesome!

  • rachylou replied 10 months ago

    And with just a hint of edge :) That blouse is fantastic.

    Wow--isn't it great when the new stuff is just waiting there, tucked away in your closet?  Gorgeous outfit, adorable baby.  Love the t-straps, too.

  • Firecracker replied 10 months ago

    Oh my gosh, I LOVE the pleated leather skirt with this outfit, Natalie. What an amazing look, and I like it even better than your gorgeous "signature" outfit. I like the darkness of it, the bit of edge with black skirt and black studded yet super feminine t-strap shoes. Your son and the closeup of you two are just too cute!

    This is more than a save. With this styling, the pussybow is going to the top of the rotation. Fabulous attitude and outfit.

  • BrieN replied 10 months ago
