My Second Ideal Wardrobe

Two weeks ago, I decided I wanted to put together an "ideal" wardrobe, consisting of simple, inexpensive basics, and bold, popping accessories. I have put together a second outfit, picking handmade pieces from Etsy artists. I wanted to make a feminine, fun outfit that doesn't cost a fortune.

Twisted Taffy Earrings, $12.00
Made with big, bold, vintage beads, this pair of earrings goes well with a number of outfits, but is unique and fun at the same time. (SuaVoce: http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=24981164)

Bohemian Shoulder College Bag - Pashmina Fabric, $19.99
I like this bag for a couple different reasons: The color is great. The shimmery gold and browns are neutral, but not boring. The fabric can really match with a number of items in a wardrobe without dominating an outfit (but still drawing some good attention). I also like how it falls. The way it crosses over the shoulders and falls on the hip is so young and trendy. (Fabrichandbags: http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=27613089)

Spotted Scarlet - Simple Drawstring Skirt (S), $20.00
A perfect summer skirt! Simple but adorable, this skirt was an easy choice for this wardrobe. The bright red goes well with the Twisted Taffy Earrings and the small, simple pattern of the skirt fabric is far from clashing with the boho bag above. It's a sweet, feminine addition to this outfit. SouthernSkirts has an amazing array of handmade skirts on her Etsy store. (SouthernSkirts: http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=24408547)

Wedding/Plain Shoes, $30.00

This outfit isn't quite a wedding dress, but the shoes match perfectly regardless! They were just what I was looking for: Simple, inexpensive, elegant. DeBonisOrquera has an amazing selection of handmade designer shoes. If you don't like the white, the DeBonisOrquera.etsy.com has a number of gorgeous colored and patterned shoes.

That's it for my "Ideal Outfit" this week! I showcased a number of inexpensive, feminine pieces from talented Etsy artists. Keep an eye out for next week's outfit!

Happy Friday!
