This is the OFFICIAL Birthday Outfit. It's my favorite birthday look that I've ever come up with because it is the epitome of October. October has two birthstones: Tourmaline which is pink, and Opal which is kind of iridescent. I might have gotten caught up in the metaphor.
I bought this top because I thought it would be a great addition to my closet. Faux fur and fuzzy textured clothing were a trend on the runway during fashion week. The fuzzy top actually comes with a matching mini skirt, which was really cute, but I thought that would be too easy. I originally bought pink pants to go with it, but ended up exchanging them for these shorts. Before I left the house I realized that I kinda looked like a tennis player, especially with the visor, but I really didn't care. I like the look a lot better with the shorts. The shorts make the outfit girly because they're pink, but also boyish because of the silhouette.
I started out looking at holographic shoes to go with the top and short. I couldn't find any shoes that were the style I wanted and in my price range. I figured that I would just DIY some canvas shoes because I had done it before. The plan was to buy some iridescent film and cut and glue it onto a pair of white canvas shoes. Tragically, Wal-Mart didn't have any. But they did have iridescent glitter which was my only other option. The outfit wouldn't be complete without my opalescent shoes, so I took what I could get. They're not exactly what I wanted, but they still turned out nicely.
Overall I love this look. It has subtle details and mimics my birthstones like I wanted.
