Just a little peeky at some of my revamped brooches that will be for sale in my Etsy Store very soon! More colors, more cuteness and lots more dresses. Also in the works, LBD ( little dress bookmarks) for all your reading needs.
Thanks to my wonderfully talented sister Hilary, and her big win as the 2011 H&M MMVA fashion blogger, my closet become a little fuller this past weekend. With $250 dollars cash to spend on WHATEVER I wanted ( it was also payday so I did not feel guilty IN THE least) I found 5 adorably cute and wonderfully amazing dresses that normally I may not have splurged on. I mean the most expensive one was only $60 and that’s hardly a lot for a beauty dress…so you might say I used my gift thriftly and wisely.
Zara seemed to be a hot spot and I snagged 2 dresses ( one black one red.) as well as a pair of red sailor inspired pants from Zara girls ( I love being short for this reason only).
At Forever 21 ( which is a hit or miss from season to season) was a HIT and I purchased a cat patterned dress and this lovellllly lace dress pictured below. How this was only $27.00, I don’t know. All I know is that is has a peter pan collar and it’s mine. Twill post the others in time as they are worn. It is the season of dresses.
I love dresses. If my closet were to have explosive diarrhea, the majority of clothes that would be expelled would be dresses. Some girls have an affinity for shoes, mine is for dresses. I have dresses that I purchased purely for the fact that they were beautiful, with no intention of even wearing them. I have dresses that I only wear ONCE a year as to not over exert their appearance. I have dresses that I wear 5 times a month because they are just so darn comfortable. It can be an expensive collection at times, but nothing beats the feeling of adding a new dress in my already stuffed closet.
Here are my top 12 favourites, in no particular order:
A gift from Taylor, he knows me too wellPolka dots are my best friend— Urban Outfitters Ok I know this is a jumper and not a dress, but I wear it like one— ASOS I always check the kids section!— Old Navy Kids Handmade for me by a woman in Australia. This is vintage velvet AND vintage lace. I bought this years ago at a small boutique in Halifaxcalled “Peepshow girly boutique,” which has since been closed. The colors remain timeless though!— Kensie Thrifted from a little second hand shop in Fredericton called Renue Boutique Handmade Illustrated dress from NeNeee Thrifted dress from ebay. Never Worn. Straight from the 50’s, awaiting the perfect occasion. Bought for the Summer! Pretty much the brightest piece I own— Club Couture A simple polka-dotter that stole my heart from H&M I always go to give this away or re-sell it but the bottom gets me everytime and makes me realize why I purchased it in the first place— ModCloth
