Abstract Fronds

First off, I would like to thank the hair salon one block over from my favorite Orange County shabu shabu restaurant for having a building, not to mention landscaping, that perfectly matched my outfit today! I was seriously not expecting that, I swear! However, I love it when an outfit and a background come together in perfect harmony!

Second, my inspiration from this skirt came from the Instagram account Somehow I ended up subscribing to it and it has been addictive ever since. If you don't already know about it, the account features bloggers, but they deviously don't tell you any of the details of the outfits featured unless you "Like" the photo. "Liking" the photo then sends an email "straight to your inbox" with all the relevant details of where each piece of the blogger's outfit can be found. I occasionally see things I like, such as this skirt, which I thought was going to be much more expensive than it was. It turns out that it was from Forever 21 and that meant it was cheap, cheap, cheap, which is always a plus. Also, the scuba-like fabric of the skirt was perfect for shabu shabu today, because you can easily just wipe up anything that splashes or spills.  All in all it was a win, win situation!

  10. Great skirt and I agree that liketoknowit usually feature some more expensive items from bloggers so it's a treat when it's very reasonably priced. Where is this Shabu Shabu place, we are always looking for yummy places to eat in OC.
