Boutique-ing My Jewelry

This past weekend, I dropped some earrings off at a boutique that will start carrying my jewelry designs (under my jewelry biz, D Celestine - http://www.dcelestine.com). I wanted to wear something professional, but pretty. I decided to go with my new Forever 21 top I scored in my thrifty shopping spree awhile back.

I tried tucking the top into my skirt...



And, I tried leaving it out...



But I'm not sure which way I like better. I probably would have worn these with my skinny black jeans if it weren't so darn hot outside! Anywho, what do you think? Does it look better tucked in or out?

Floral-detailed top: Forever 21
Skirt: Kenneth Cole Reaction
Shoes: Kenneth Cole

Thanks l!! :) D

Pulled out, definitely.

Amethyst said...

I had to look a few times to decide but I definitely think it looks better tucked IN AND I would add a black patent belt to it. Looks pretty.

ZoesMom said...

I like both, but tucked in looks more professional. Untucked it looks like you're going for an evening out.

Natali said...

ditto for me! more polished

tucked in!

that's my new favorite style, a flowy blousy blouse tucked into a slim skirt.

looks fab!

D'Rae said...

I like it untucked.
Have you tried it with a belth?

Amanda said...

I say untucked, but wear a black or red belt to cinch in the waistline!

Wendy said...

I have always wanted a rosette top like your's. I vote tucked in.

Shopaholic D said...

Thanks for the vote, Kristen!

Amethyst - we are so on the same page - I thought about adding a patent leather belt, but didn't get around to it...lol.

Very interesting observation, Zoesmom - I agree!

I like being "polished" Natali!

Thanks Style-ish - I wish the top weren't quite so long, but I think with the right skirt, it won't bunch too much underneath. I have seen lots of flowy shirts tucked in lately, it seems.

Hi D'Rae - not yet, but I should!

Amanda - maybe I should do another "photo shoot" with a belt since a lot of people are suggesting that. I do love a nice belted waistline!

Hey Wendy - try Forever 21 - that's where I got mine!

Hi there,
It will look better untucked if you dress it up with a metallic belt to break the black and white monotone.
It looks good tucked in too, you could try adding an eye-catching metallic bracelet.
I like reading your blog :)

as like what they've said, the tucked in was/is much better, not only because it looks professional but it also show the curves of your hips... nice dress, it suits you just right...
