"THE LOOK OF LOVE" LOOK #2

So remember in yesterday's post here, I mentioned wearing the leopard lounge pant with the matching zip front jacket would be a leopard overload for me? Well I went the opposite extreme for Look 2 per my weeklong "The Look of Love" series. I'm not only serving up a baroque print which is "uber romantic" as stated by one of my followers on Instagram but I'm also sporting a complete set.

This set is pulled from the Nicki Minaj for Kmart collection. I first spied the Bomber Jacket and upon trying on the matching Pencil Skirt, I was in love which is a great place to be in seeing as how we are counting down to "love day." Although I'd much prefer to be in love with a man but fashion will have to do.

Baroque is a vintage print. Both pieces are polyester/spandex which means there is a lot of give. The skirt fits perfectly and is very true to size. However, the jacket was a bit oversized. I'm typically M/L but I had to size down to a small because the oversized look was not at all flattering paired with a pencil skirt. But the fit is great. The fabric is comfy and it's just an easy and effortless look. I rocked a tank under the jacket but there are many possibilities. I actually prefer to rock the jacket zipped up instead of open and although my purple suede stiletto pumps scored from Payless a couple years ago, don't really come through as well in this pic, the color was the perfect compliment. I didn't wanna overdo as far as accessories because the print is enough. I didn't wanna be gaudy. But have no fear of prints. Now, where can I find a date?

The jacket is on sale and the skirt too for as little as 4.99!!! And there is even a Keyhole Dress in the same print.  Remember I dropped a dime on Kmart's Shop Your Way program here? Sign up!
