This is what I wore for my second day at Disney. I spent half the day in the pool, which was wonderful, and when I finally dragged myself out of the water, I had another colorful and comfortable outfit planned out.
Top: Cacique by Lane Bryant, skirt: Dots via The Big Thrifty, shoes: Brooks via Zappos, watch: Amazon, pink wristband: “Magic Band” for hotel and theme park access, rainbow bracelet: a store at Disney, necklace: Betsey Johnson via eBay, earrings: Forever 21, hairclip: Crown & Glory
The nice thing about owning lots of shiny things is that when you’re in a hurry and digging through the clothing and accessories strewn all over your floor, you can grab a few random shiny, neutral-ish items and look like you planned your outfit in advance.
Top and earrings: Forever 21, pants: Target, necklace: clothing swap, flower: H&M, bracelets: Deb, shoes: Clarks
When I first saw this dress at a clothing swap, I almost didn’t pick it up because it was so similar to this one that I already had. But then I decided to give it a try anyway, and I’m glad I did. It’s less fancy than the other one but still nice, so it makes a good everyday work dress.
Dress: Connected Woman via clothing swap, necklace: Forever 21, bracelets: Deb, earrings: Faces, shoes: Clark’s (yeah, I don’t know why I didn’t wear black sandals with this…)
This is what I wore to my cousin’s wedding over Memorial Day weekend. I spent a lot of time trying to find something more spring-y/floral/frothy/floaty, but was ultimately unsuccessful. I even bought a custom-made mauve tutu that I was hoping to wear over a black dress, but it ended up being so poofy that there was no way I could wear it without knocking over everything around me. (It’s still awesome, though–I will definitely wear it sometime when I go to an event with more space to move around.) So I went with this, which was my backup dress, and it ended up working out really well.
Dress: Macy’s, shoes: Clarks, clutch: eBay, rose bangle: H&M, rhinestone wristband: So Good, silver rose ring: ancient, pink rose statement ring: The Tiny Teapot, necklace, earrings, and hair bow: Forever 21
I got this dress a few years ago and weirdly, it’s a size 14. I’m not sure why I even tried it on, but I’m glad I did. Continue reading
Pretty flowers I saw recently at Trader Joe’s
Happy Easter to those who celebrate, happy end-of-Passover to my fellow Jews, and happy spring to everyone in the Northern hemisphere!
I’ve been having a wonderful weekend of casual interfaith hanging-outage. Last night, I had a few friends over for a “seder” that involved mostly eating chicken soup and matzoh balls (which my friend Sam made using her mom’s recipe!), ordering Chinese, and watching The Prince of Egypt. And now I’m about to head to my local park for an Easter egg hunt organized by another friend, to be following by general frolicking and dinner.
I haven’t had time to put together this week’s links post, so I’ll put it up tomorrow (which is a holiday here in Massachusetts anyway).
This is not so much an OOTD as a this-dress-didn’t-quite-work-for-me-but-it’s-so-pretty-let-me-show-you-it-anyway of the day.
I’m still on the hunt for a dress to wear to my cousin’s wedding (and still hoping this dress comes back in stock, because it’s the prettiest). I ordered this floral prom dress from Evans to try it out, and unfortunately it doesn’t work for me–which is so sad, because I’m in love with the print. Photorealistic florals are so my jam.
It looks ok from the front, but from the side…well, I’m not going to show you the side-view, because it makes me look pregnant. I don’t mean it shows off my VBO, which I’m not opposed to doing–I mean it literally makes me look like I’m about to have a baby. And that’s just not a look I want to go for.
This dress would look gorgeous on someone else, but on my body, it’s just not meant to be…. *sigh.*
top and skirt: Pink Clove, teggings: Re/Dress, cardigan: Kohl’s (forever ago), shoes: Naot, tote bag: Target, necklace: eBay, earrings and rhinestone wristband: So Good, bangles: Torrid and Deb, rings: from Claire’s and a toy store back in high school, flower crown: Crown & Glory
I’m so, so in love with this top and skirt, which I bought with holiday money from my grandparents.
The shirt is baggier than I’d like–I’m in between two sizes on Pink Clove’s size chart, so I ordered up, and it’s definitely on the big side. The material is also surprisingly un-soft for velvet. It’s comfortable on the inside, but the outside, which brushes against my arms when I walk, is rough and a bit itchy. That said, I love it anyway, because it’s just so fabulous. And wearing my (also fabulous) sequined cardigan solves the itchy-arm problem.
While taking outfit pictures, I came across one of my feline friends, Vancouver. He’s such a sweet kitty. 🙂
This is my second outfit post for the Fall Fashion Faceoff challenge organized by Kelly of Masque Mag. It combines a few of my favorite things: ombre, floral, vertical stripes, and of course, a tiny hat.
top: Pink Clove, leggings: Wet Seal, necklace: Macy’s, zipper bracelet: some random store that was going out of business on Newbury Street a few years ago, studded wristband: PacSun, earrings: gift from a relative, boots: Hot Topic way back in the day, ring: Kelsea Echo, tiny hat headband: Claire’s
Some things never change; one of them is my love of photorealistic floral prints.
I put this outfit together for Kelly’s Fall Fashion Faceoff challenge, combining a skirt I’ve had since middle school (which is old enough to make it “vintage”–eek!) with a blazer I got about a year ago.
blazer: Torrid, skirt: Marshall’s (?) in 1998 or 1999, boots: Hot Topic in 2001, black dress: Target, belt: Re/Dress, shawl: not sure (possibly from my mom), necklace: from a clothing swap, headband; eBay
