Outfit: Manifesto

GLITTERSHOES_7Manifesto T-Shirt // Shabby Apple Tulle Skirt

Kate Spade Heels (or try this inexpensive pair)

My friend Meg is launching a line of tees and I was so honored when she asked me to be a part of the lookbook!  The shirt is awesome… so soft and comfy… and I love the gold writing.  I wanted to dress it up a bit so I paired it with this fun tulle skirt.  (A note about the skirt…  I really, really wanted the Anthropologie version but wasn’t going to spend nearly $200 on a tulle skirt that I’ll probably only wear a few times.  After a comprehensive  search of the Internets, I settled on this one from of all places… Shabby Apple.  Their store is usually not really my thing, but I love my new skirt.  Who would have thought?)

I’m so proud of Meg… now go check out her shirts!

    There are few things in the world that I love more than a good tutu or tulle skirt. I have a hugely fluffy one from ASOS, and I might have to look into Shabby Apple now. The t is very cute. Wonderful outfit! xo

    I saw the thumbnail in my Google Reader – *knew* I’d love this outfit! It’s the perfect combination of casual and feminine, and I feel like a tulle skirt would be a fun addition.

    Such a perfect combo! LOVE.

    I love the way you styled the t-shirt–this tulle skirt is perfection on you! Very Carrie Bradshaw, I must say!

    Grace! You are just… TOO fabulous! I knew this would be a stellar post as soon as I saw the preview image on Bloglovin’ ;)

  14. Sarah January 15, 2013 at 12:19 pm #

    You look like a princess! I’ve been eyeing that skirt online at anthropologie too, but like you said, it’s not the most practical piece in the world :)

    This skirt and those shoes are a match made in princess heaven! And kudos to you because I’m sure it must’ve been pretty cold when you took these pictures :) but you look like you’re posing in hawaii!

  21. Chloe Moon January 15, 2013 at 2:52 pm #

    I’ve been seeing this lady everywhere!!! I love her word a month t-shirts! Her handwriting is beautiful and “evolve” is such a powerful word! This photoshoot reminds me a little bit of Carrie Bradshaw in the newest Sex and the city movie with her tulle skirt! =)

  22. Boyana January 15, 2013 at 3:12 pm #

    You look stunning!

  23. Sarah January 15, 2013 at 5:23 pm #

    Love this combo, Grace! I feel like you’re a real-life version of one of my recent pins =) Also, I must say, your hair is truly gorgeous. Waiting for mine to grow is not my favorite

  24. Judy January 15, 2013 at 6:26 pm #

    Such a beautiful skirt. You look lovely.

  25. nancy @ adore to adorn January 15, 2013 at 6:35 pm #

    What a great lookalike skirt you found. I don’t personally shop at Shabby Apple but it’s amazing what you can find at places you least expect! Congrats to Meg for her cool shirt launch! =)

  26. Kristina January 15, 2013 at 7:00 pm #

    I love the mix of the tulle and casual tee, very cute.
