Lookbook: Bandage Pink & Red Velvet

9/19/2011

I was originally supposed to go apple picking on this day, which would have made a divine background for an outfit post, but those plans got squashed. So, instead, I wore this to watch football and get lunch at Kona Grill. I was probably the most dressed up person sitting at the bar watching college boys beat up on each other.

Please don't mind the crease in the bottom half of my dress. I ordered this from Shopbop before I went on vacation and I had to have it sit at the post office for about a week. So, it was either folding creases or having it get stolen while it sat at my front door for 7 days.

By the way, I've been wearing these shoes like crazy. Pretty sure I've worn them every day in the last week. Yep, pretty damn sure of that.

I just realized that I haven't done a Lookbook post since August so some of you might not remember what I look like. This is probably the biggest photo of my face on this entire blog. But I want everyone to know that this is me. This face--right here--is me.

So when I do a Featured Fashionista post, for instance, please don't comment saying "you look great" because that isn't me. This girl right here with the tiny crater in the side of her cheek is me. :)

  1. Your smile is so radiant and happy;-)
    The food looks good, too, but not as good as your smile, though. My favourite bit of the outfit is that gorgeous bag. I went apple picking at the weekend, too;-)
