*Vintage Chanel bag - see my tips on buying vintage bags
*t+j Designs Sapphire Teardrop Earrings - on sale for $17!

This is an outfit from the fall, hence all the leaves around me but it never made it on the blog because I didn't like it much.  I mean, I think it's a good outfit in concept but the pants didn't fit me so it just looks bad.  BUT... I get a lot of questions on ASOS sizing (I know, it's a bit crazy!) so I thought I'd post these pants to give you guys an idea of the fit of their regular sizing pants as opposed to their Petite Sizing which you can see a pair on me in this lookbook.  (Both are a size 2)  They are much too big on me and throughout the day they seemed to stretch even more and by the end of the day were falling around my hips.  I could belt it but then it bunched really weird so now these are relegated to the back of my closet and probably won't be worn unless I can convince my tailor to slim them down for me for not too crazy of a cost.  It's a shame because I love the style and the color and I really wanted them to work.  I didn't think that petite sizing would make much of a difference (my usual take on petite sizing is slightly smaller fit and shorter inseam but not a crazy difference) but I'd say it's at least a full size and a half bigger so be warned when ordering pants from ASOS.  I got to meet up with Jean last night (more on that later!) who is the queen of petite sizing and fits and I was talking to her about how I don't tend to buy petite sizing in pants because the inseams are always too short for me but for ASOS, petite sizing is definitely the way to go!  Just thought I'd share the tip with those of you that always wonder what size to order and if you should get the regular or petite size.  :)

P.S. I'm on a flats kick and am loving cap toe flats, check out my top picks over on the Smarter blog!
