dress - Forever 21, necklace - Forever 21, shoes - Joe Fresh, belt - H&M
When I first saw this dress on Lisa, I made it my quest to find it. The full skirt and high waist (perfect for short waisted me) has a lovely 50s ladylike feel, while the hem length and bold stripes add the perfect modern tough. I was fortunate enough to find it on a quick trip to Forever 21, and happily snatched it up. That was probably two months ago and it's been sitting in my closet ever since.
Ruh roh Shaggy.
This is most likely a sign that I have too much stuff in my closet! And of course, what did I go ahead and do yesterday? Order a crap load of shoes from Talbots. Yes, I'm rhetorically smacking myself on the head here. But... I do love the shoes I hauled. The heel strap on the back of the blush and blue pair had me swooning in front of my computer. I can see them being styled with a floaty ballerina style skirt, and the peep toes would be a great addition to my shoe closet for cool summer and warm spring/fall days.
Okay purchase justified! I will stop hitting myself on the head now.
