I was sorting through my closet this weekend, trying to pick which items to bring to a clothing swap I’m holding in a few weeks, and almost threw this dress into the swap pile. I haven’t worn it in forever because the straps don’t quite cover my bra, so it’s not appropriate for fancy occasions.
But then I saw my studded button-down shirt hanging near it, and I had an idea. And I’m really happy with how it turned out! This kind of mix-and-match outfit creation–playing with pattern and texture within a limited color palette, or vice versa–is exactly what I love about fashion.
Dress: Dress Barn via eBay, top: Marshall’s, shrug: SimplyBe, leggings: Re/Dress, snow boots: from my mom, tote bag: ASOS, necklace: a gift shop in France (I’ve also seen it available online at La Marelle, although it is currently sold out), earrings: Faces (which is closing, boo), fascinator: from my aunt, rings: old, wristbands: So Good
This fuzzy shrug is literally the most comfortable thing ever. I also have it in hot pink, and am crossing my fingers that it’ll come back in stock in my size in black. Somehow I’ve ended up without a comfortable, basic black sweater, except for a very old and holey one that I got at Target years ago.
These leggings are also incredibly comfortable. I wish all my leggings were this soft; I have a bunch of leggings in various prints (stripes, floral, leopard) from cheap juniors’ stores, and now I never wear them because I’ve been spoiled by Re/Dress and Domino Dollhouse. Oh well.
I’ve been so into gold glittery nail polish lately. It’s all I want to wear, all the time! So my toes are gold and sparkly too, even though no one will see them much until spring.
