Lookbook: Dress for Less

5/13/2011


Lookbook

*Note: I originally posted this May 12, but Blogger had some serious issues and took down everyone's May 12th posts and also got rid of all the comments!

...not happy with Blogger right now, but don't let that stop you from reading this post! Your comments will make me feel much better! :)


ruffled-dress2The story with this dress is that I went to Ross looking for designer deals and shoes and whatnot and I happened upon this dress. Now, the first time I saw this dress I thought it looked cute and that the bottom was so creative, but I wasn't sure how much I liked it so I passed.

ruffled-dress3Then I went back to Ross about a week later and saw this damn dress again. And this was at a different Ross, by the way. So I thought that maybe it was fate and that this dress was meant to be in my shopping cart. After I tried it on and belted it, I realized that it was definitely going to be a good buy.

ruffled-dress4These BCBG shoes are also from Ross -- or TJ Maxx. Seriously I'm constantly getting these two places mixed up.

Almost all of the jewelry is gifted, except for the butterfly necklace that I bought on eBay for about $2. The belt came with a different piece, so the entire outfit is around $45 and that includes the shoes.

What do you think of my look?

  3. The color of the dress we call "altrosa" in German and it's one of my absolute favourite colors. The dress looks wonderful on you. It's a wonderful outfit, perfectly combined, and I can't believe that it was only 45$!!!

  35. First off, I want that elephant pendant. Secondly, those shoes are gorgeous. Thirdly, you look awesome!

    I love the hem of the dress and the color is great, a very unique take on pink that's not overwhelming. I also love your use of accessories from the belt to the butterfly and bangles.
