Inspired By: ROMYGOLD

So, I never mentioned it here on the blog, but I won the Biker Slash bag from ROMYGOLD in a giveaway at Tres Chic Now. I about keeled over when I found out. I mean, I'm frugal - we all know that - so I honestly don't own a bag this nice. Well, now I do and I was so excited when I got it in the mail that I immediately had to share it with you all... and base my outfit around it...

Inspired by Romygold  (12/18/10)
Top: No tag, Thrifted
Black Sweater: Worthington, JCPenny
Jeans: Banana Republic, Thrifted
Black Knee Highs: ??
Shoes: Transit, Thrifted, $3.49
Glasses: SEE Eyewear
Purse: Romygold, FREE, won in giveaway

This is noteworthy for a few reasons. 1.) I never dress this good on a weekend. Hence the reason I rarely blog on the weekend. I'm honest - I just don't bother on the weekends unless I'm really going somewhere. Also, I broke one of my own rules and wore socks (well, knee high nylons) with open toe shoes. I've seen it around the blogosphere a lot as of late and liked what it looked like on everyone else. I typically wouldn't pair the two together because I live in Michigan and, well, it is snowy and freezing here. The look isn't very smart to wear in winter in Michigan but I threw that out the window today. I'm hitting the shops for a few last minute Christmas gifts and decided I would rock it out.

Shoes (12/18/10)

I love, love, love that this bag combines black and brown on the handles. If you remember, I'm trying to work more black and brown (together) into my outfits. This works perfectly into that! Also - the handles are wood. They are so sturdy and gorgeous.... did I think I would ever say that about a purse handle? Well, no, but here I am saying it!

My Romygold!

Yes, my outfit was completely inspired by the bag today. I know none of these things are 30x30 pieces but I don't normally blog on the weekend so I slightly bent the rules. :)
