Dress 1: Amish Much?

2.1.11

The  dress by itself

Once I added some things to spice it up. Dress - somewhere in Madrid; Scarf - somewhere Toronto; Boots - somewhere in New York City; Belt - American Eagle




Today's the first day of my dress challenge.  Hope you're all as excited as I am.  I thought I'd start with a dress that I hardly wear and one that's not a favorite of mine.   I figure since I can only wear it once  until the challenge is over I should save and cherish my favorites.

This dress is hard to style.  It has puffy sleeves that eliminate the possibility of wearing a cardigan, and I tried it with a vest but I looked like I was auditioning for Sisterwives.  Husband actually suggested a scarf and that ended up working.   Overall, I'm not sure it flatters my small frame, you know?  I feel it makes me look a bit frumpy.  And yes, a leather jacket, boyfriend blazer or jean jacket can make anything look decent, but do I want to keep something around that I only feel "decent" about? What do you think? Your comments are helpful and I need help deciding these things.  I have trouble letting go of my clothes. Donate, store, or save?

Moving on.

My Bestie is coming over today.  Haven't seen her in about three weeks - and we never go that long without seeing each other.  So we're going to be chatting it up like mad.  Husband will probably escape into his basement cave to get a break.  But it's going to be fun.  Then Her Man is coming over and it's games night.  Yes, that's right, game night! We're playing either Settles of Catan or Carcassone.  It doesn't matter which because either way they're going down!  It's on B@#%h!  (Disclaimer: I'm intense about my gaming)

  2. I just stumbled across your blog, and I too am a dress-aholic. I will have to say the sleeves on this one are not my favorite, but I love the purple pattern. It does dress up well too.
