This outfit was inspired by Sharon Tate. I couldn't get the perfect little black dress that she wore all the time, but I tried to find one similar in a knit fabrication. I paired the dress with sequin pumps that have the shape of a heel from the late 60s. I finished off the look with hoop earrings as she wore those a lot.

I have been in the mood for stiletto heels and pumps lately, which is a change for me because usually in the summer I love to wear wedges more often. The good thing about pumps is they always make your legs look good and extra long. These Miu Miu suede pumps were a great sale snag at Barneys last winter. They are this light pink or rose color, but the product description originally said nude. Either way, I love them. Suede pumps are easier to dress down for daytime wear than patent leather pumps, which is what I like about them. These also have a taper toe and they aren't quite as high as some of my other pumps.
I wore them with these beautiful MINKPINK floral shorts that Karina from Tea Leaf Clothing sent me. I love the fabric on these shorts as it is so soft. I think for the price point you really cannot go wrong with these. I have wanted a pair of high-waisted floral shorts for quite some time and these really fit the bill. Brands like MINKPINK are great because you can find those trendy items you want for summer for a fraction of the price. Some of you may remember a couple little black dresses by MINKPINK that I wore last summer on Fashion Snag. The quality is also really nice for the price as far as I am concerned. I also like BB Dakota for trendy items at a cheaper price. The crepe fabric on these MINKPINK shorts keeps your legs cool, but the longer length makes you extra comfortable. Also, these shorts come with a detachable black leather belt. Sometimes brands and designers use faux leather belts with items, which really bothers me if they are charging a lot for the piece. You can use the code STARSTYLE for 15% off your order on regular priced items at Tea Leaf Clothing.
I paired the floral shorts with this floral lace racerback tank by LnA. I remember when LnA came out with all their lace tees and tanks and people were going wild for them. I am glad that lace is always in style. This tank is perfect for the 98 degree weather we have been having here. I like wearing it with just a knit bra underneath. I liked the floral on floral concept in this outfit due to the floral on both the tank and the shorts. I think the play on textures is what made it work. For accessories I went with the girly floral look and added some Chanel pearl earrings and pearl sunglasses as well as a Tiffany & Co. dragonfly ring. I usually try to keep the jewelry to a minimun, but it felt right in this case to add some pearls due to the floral motif.

This Cynthia Rowley floral skirt is so beautiful and it glows in these photos. It is on sale on Gilt right now for $10 less than what I paid. I think it is worth every penny, especially when you consider the retail price. These Alaia platforms seemed like the perfect color to go with this skirt. I kept the outfit simple by pairing it with a blush colored tank from Haute Hippie. I love a good ribbed tank and I don't think you can ever have too many. This Tiffany diamond dragonfly pendant was a gift from my boyfriend a few years ago. I love dragonflies both for their beauty and function. They can really catch a mosquito fast, saving people from scratching and itching a nasty bite for days. In other news, I have been eating way too many glazed donuts. I think it is the sugar high. This might be why my boyfriend refuses to make me an orange julius before bed.
