Ladylike


For being such a girly girl, it's amazing that I don't own more dresses.  It probably has to do with the fact that just about every dress I try on would have to be altered in some way (I discussed in detail my fit issues here).  Since most of the ones I do have are warm-weather dresses, I was thrilled when I found this tweed style in my size on clearance.  And the best part of all?  No alterations necessary.




What I'm wearing:
Gap dress, ALDO booties (on sale here), Forever 21 clutch (here), MixIt cuff (similar here), Nails: Essie California Coral

Lovely dress. You're so right, it is very ladylike.

I am quite the "girly girl" myself but I don't own very many dresses either. I prefer the flexibility of mixing & matching with skirts.

Beautiful dress and cuff! That cuff looks similar to the one coming out for the Mango spring collection but I saw you got yours at Forever21 so I bet it's a lot cheaper! Good find! Oh and the pop of color with the purse. Looove the outfit!!!!!!!
