2016 Outfit Round Up – Vegas, Festival, Christmas Party, Really Great Selfie Mirror and More!

And now, for my next trick.. Here are some of the times I managed to put on clothes successfully! This post is brought to you by my regret at not having posted everytime I took a picture of an outfit I liked, and also by my desire to counter balance my post on failed outfits earlier this week.

Its also, accidentally, a testament to how certain pieces work for me over and over again.

Do you have items that show up over and over in the outfits you like? If so, link me pictures in the comments. I’m interested to see if other people have habits like my exposed underwear band and platform boots. 🙂
