outfit post: School-Girl Crush

Let's Get Parochial: there's nothing like indulging your inner school-girl
Here's hoping this will be the last set of poorly lit indoor shots for a long while. The studio is close to being ready for our Citizens of Rosebud April- Fool-For-You vintage Hoe-Down & Extravaganza.  We're just making the final touches of pretty (oh yeah, and pricing EVERYTHING) for our grand, grand, grand, grand, grand re-opening. 

I'm thinking of posting some pics of my favorite pieces over here; what do you think, should I? If so, should I post prices and accept reservations, and/or online purchases? I do have my as yet to be utilized shop blog,, and if enough people are interested would be happy to oblige. Let me know in the comments. 

Now Wearing: 
  • Citizen Rosebud embellished School-Grrl Jacket (available for sale)
  • Skanky ol' Black T-shirt
  • GAP plaid mini, from a free pile
  • We Love Colors tights in kelly green
  • Vintage 1980's Black Leather Booties, size 7 1/2 (available for sale)
  • Vintage 1960's Tapestry Tote (available for sale)

you are such a sight!! there is nothing i don't love about this outfit. it's a great take on the school girl look - quite a bit more sophisticated and streamlined without losing the playfulness. you are so good at never losing the playfulness of a look and it's something i admire greatly.

your eyebrows, btw, are so cool. i was just admiring them for several minutes.

Pull Your Socks Up! said...

You are rockin' it today Bella - utter, utter gorgeousness on show here. The green tights are insane and **gasp** the jacket - I want one!!!!!!! xoxo

My dear, dear Bella. I would love your blog to be about you and what you are.
If I were you, I would put the shop on the right handside SHOP BELLA´S or something like that, keeping the the centre free for you.
There is nothing more off putting than blogs who throough on your face shops and brands. In the end you cannot find the person who the blog is about.
Much love always.

mispapelicos said...

I didn´t tell you how hot you look.
Mil beso corazón.

Vix said...

Total and utter gorgeousness! Love the tights and you.
Good luck with your sales! xxx

I teach in a school where the girls wear plaid every day and leave saying they will never wear it again...maybe if they could have green legs, they would like it better!! So much more fun than knee socks!!

The Semi Sweet said...

You are looking amazing as usual! I really love that jacket. I wish I lived in Sacramento so I could mosey on down to your shop. That sounds like fun:)

Ofelia said...

Bella, you look so cool and beautiful!!!
I'm in love with the Vintage 1960's Tapestry Tote !!!!
By now you know my purse obsession!!!

Collette Osuna said...

Sara Kristiina said...

Totally great!
by the way, love the blazer!


The Wh0le Story said...

I'd love to see some more pieces over at your online shop! Also, these tights are pretty great. I really need to get around to buying a pair from this stellar company :o)

Unknown said...

Yay Kelly Green Tights!!! I have the same exact pair and wore them on St. Patty's day. So much fun. This outfit is really fun (as your outfits always are). How exciting about your re-opening!!! :)


Fashnlvr said...

You know how much I love plaid! And you!! Those green tights and booties are awesome.
BTW - Kristy is right - you do have great brows! I love the way they curve up!

annimal said...

You make catholic school garb look good, and that's saying somethin comin from a recovering catholic school girl!! And I bet you didn't even hide cuss words in the plaid, which was a trend I started in 6th grade!! That was the only way I saw to make a uniform cool, but you've changed my mind!!

Sarah said...

I'm more a shopper than a buyer, but I would definitely be interested in pricing and purchasing capability for pieces that move me -- either as blog entries, or as outfit links to your shop. Paypal makes this stuff pretty easy. I *can* be moved to buy if something really strikes me.

Like that teal-toned tapestry bag! Probably expensive to ship, though.

Anonymous said...

You are picture perfect in every way. As a good ole catholic school girl ( wink wink ), everything about that outfit speaks to me. I'd wear it in a heartbeat.

Happy happy Monday !


Anupriya DG said...

School girl cuteness!! :)
Loving your green tights!!!

I think you should definitely post snaps of stuff.....would love to see what's up for grabs!!

Rebecca said...

I love the jacket. Great take on the school girl look!

WendyB said...

LOL @ "skanky" t-shirt!

Sweet said...

aww I just watched a movie about school girls and this outfit made me smile and remember the fun scenes...oh the skirt is very cute especially the plaid prints mixed with the green tights...just beautiful...


Stephanie Loudmouth said...

You are so stinkin' cute, Bella! I love that bag. And the tights -- wow!

Gosh, I'm so excited for your store re-re-reeeee-opening. I plan to be a loyal customer in no time :)

I'd watch the video but I'm on a college campus surrounded by kids doing homework. Wouldn't want to distract! Be back later!!!

My Heart Blogged said...

You look so great in this! I would love for you to put stuff online. I think a lot of people would be interested.

The skirt and tights combo are too cool. You are looking very smart, Bella. I would love it if you posted pics of the stuff in your store.

Marissa said...

Yes, I'd love to see the stuff in your store and have a chance to buy online. Oh, btw, you're adorable. :)

Violet Folklore said...

This outfit is adorable!!
Yes, don't you know every woman loves her a "sneak preview"!?
Did I just get a pop-up ad??
Do you not get texts btw? Was in Sac yesterday and totally texted you the night before.

Nikki Mortham said...

OMG I had a dream about you last night!!!!
You owned a fabulous clothing store, and I asked you if I could work there in the afternoons and weekends when I wasn't teaching! You were a little hesitant at first, but when I said I would work for minimum wage just to hang out at your shop, you happily agreed. Then I made milkshakes.

the Citizen Rosebud said...

LOL, Lil Bits, I seriously hope this dream comes true. Especially the milkshakes.

Fierce Fabulous Fit said...

This looks great, lady!! I love the green tights. They take the outfit from good to fab! :) I think posting a few of your favorites couldn't hurt!

Anonymous said...

the green tights are excellent with this look.

Heather Fonseca said...

Please tell me more about that jacket - like how much it costs and what size it is and where you'll be selling it and if I have to go to Sacramento to get it.

You know where to find me.
