I love this shirt, except that it's a little bit short and the bracelet-length sleeves really bug me. [Does anyone else have wardrobe items like that? With excepts? What do you do?] I "solved" the second problem here by scrunching the sleeves. (It doesn't tolerate very much scrunching, but it's working OK so far this morning). And the first was somewhat lessened by wearing a belt. Anyway, the patterning and overlapping pieces always remind me a bit of tattoos, so it somehow feels both pretty and tough. (And I don't think I've ever met a paisley I didn't love.)
It felt like everything came together perfectly on this one. The shirt background matches the boots, the rose stitching on the boots matches the shirt, and I got to wear never-worn lace-and-cables (with beads!) socks. I know the stitching on the boots and the socks don't show when it's worn this way, but still. These details add to my happiness with this outfit. Which was high. :)
