Venus's Spin on Grace's Sightseeing Outfit

Hi guys! It's Zaira, and today I wanted to show you how Venus styled Grace's sightseeing outfit. This is a new outfit from AG that they just came out with for the Grace (GOTY) collection. It's pretty girly, and therefore I was sort of surprised when Venus picked it out. Once she put it all together, though, I understood. Venus has a very fancy wedding to go to in a few weeks and needed a more formal outfit to wear. 


In this photo you can see the two main pieces- the striped tee shirt with 3/4 length sleeves, and the white skirt. The skirt actually has three layers- a satiny opaque fabric, a netting, and the sheer material with tiny flocked polka dots. This skirt is a very versatile piece- I highly recommend this outfit!


In this photo you can see the sequined top of the shirt, and the white bow. Also, Venus is wearing her trademark black winged eyeliner and red lipstick.


Speaking of trademark pieces, how about these boots??? They're fabulous! Venus wears these with everything, except her pj's and swimsuit, of course! They go with pretty much everything and they can be both dressy and casual, depending on how she styles them.


Venus was just going to wear her hair in her favorite style- two long braids. However, that's where I came in. I wouldn't post this on my fashion blog if I didn't at least help style it, and Venus and i both agreed that these simple pearl cat ears were the way to go to add just a touch of whimsical glamour. These actually belong to Nikki, but she let us borrow them for the photos. Thanks, Nikki!


And here's the hairstyle I was talking about. We put her hair in a simple ponytail and then clipped the two twisted strands in with this mint green bow- it matches Venus's eyes and adds a touch of unexpected color to the outfit. Plus, it echoes the bow on the front of the shirt!


Here's one last look at the outfit- I love it!
