MIXMOSS: Pleats and Peplum


$8.32

The second piece I got from MIXMOSS is this chiffon skirt.

Chiffon material.
Color -- Khaki.
Pleated & flowy.
Garterized waist band.
Super affordable.

I paired it with my bright orange loose top from Gap to liven up the look since the skirt's color is a bit dull.
I thought it would be more flowy and loose (because that's how it looked like in the website) but it's actually kind of tight, especially in the waist area. 
I mean it still flows and all but not as much as I want it to. 
However, I really love how I can wear it with different colors and prints!


Flounce Embellished OL Chiffon Blazer
$13.65

This blazer is the third piece that I received from MIXMOSS

Light and airy.
Thin, chiffon material.
Shoulder pads add a vintage feel.
Peplum back.
Floral print arm folds.
 One button.
See-through.
Very cheap!

Out of all the items I got, this is blazer is my FAVORITE!
I love the contrast of the white with the floral print in the arm fold. 
It's really girly and fun. 
I think adding this blazer to the outfit, completed the whole look. 
It gave the ensemble a clean and polished vibe. 


For accessories, I wore my gold long chain pearl necklace from Forever 21. 
I stacked my gold Fleur De Lis bracelet, from New Orleans, with my other silver pearl bracelet.
I finished off the look with my gold bandage sandals. 

ADVICE: Add a few more inches to your measurements when ordering. Their sizes run kind of small. 

:D

  34. Oh I love the pleated skirt! I simply adore the way you paired it as well 8)

    I don’t know how I feel about peplum? I love it on everybody else, but for me eh… could be my body shape I guess, makes me look un-proportionate LOL
