There was something about this outfit that felt very "quirky french girl" to me... The blouson shoulders, the lady-like bag, the red lip. And it seems that black leather shorts are always chic and that the ever essential slight tuck of the top brings an effortless feel to it all. But the whimsy and fashion vibe that this outfit creates doesn't have to break the bank. Top: $7, shorts: $49, bag: hand-me-down, shoes: $100. Shoes are typically where I splurge, but I cannot emphasize enough-- Goodwill and other thrift stores can become your BFF for bargains.
