The Fashion Magpie Basic Street Style 1

#Basic, But Not.

I’ve been featuring a ton of girly florals, pinks, and bows this season.  What can I say?  It’s au courant and it’s also very much in line with my feminine style.

That said, I do occasionally gravitate towards the other end of the spectrum — towards blacks, whites, reds.  The powerhouse side of the spectrum.  The Hillary Clinton side of the fashion color palette, if you will.  I realized recently that wearing this red bodysuit made me feel empowered in a new kind of way — and that I need more red in my life!

Finally — this ladylike LWD is appropriate for work or play and, though it’s priced at an affordable $129, I’m waiting patiently for a promo code…

More Black, White, + Red Finds


  1. That white blouse is a FIND! So classic and perfect with a twist. A white button down blouse and trouser jeans is a weekend uniform for me, but bows, gah. BOWS! I might buy 5 of them, it’s just too perfect.
