Last summer, I remember madly trying to find affordable two piece outfits. I was obsessed with the trend, but unfortunately, the only one I could find was a beautiful Tibi two piece that cost a cool $800 combined. That was never going to happen. I love clothes, but I also love saving. So, I patiently waited. I waited for the trend to hit the mainstream markets and I am so glad I did (and that I still like the trend a year later!).
I am glad I waited out the trend, because it brought me to this two piece outfit, which was lent to me by my good friend Tatiana. I was instantly in love with this outfit when I saw her wearing it on her Christmas card last year. I mean, how could I not love it? She is gorgeous, the photo was taken in front of the Eiffel Tower with her perfect husband and the outfit, well, it is a show stopper. I feel so grateful to be surrounded by friends who are not only wonderfully kind, generous and intelligent people, but also friends with wonderful fashion sense that do not mind me borrowing from their closets for the blog. So, thank you to the old sister I never had, Tatiana, for lending me this beautiful outfit!
