What I Wore Wednesday

Oh...it's been awhile.
I just keep forgetting to take pictures to document outfits.
And, I find myself standing in my closet thinking...'what should I wear?'
That was one reason I started participating in WIWW.
So I would have a library of pics of outfits.

And be inspired by all the other girls over on Lindsey's blog that link up!!

I've been dreaming of finding a vintage dress.
Only problem is...they are all usually too small for me.
I'm a size 10-12.
But guess what ladies....I found one and I'm in love.
And, it still had the original tags on the dress.
$5.99. Size 14-16.
Let me tell you....14-16 was still small back then!

Cream CottonVintage Dress w/Crocheted Hem: Betty Girl Boutique - Local
Brown Belt: Betty Girl Boutique
 Ruffled Cardigan: Hollister
Bronze Wedges: Old
Turquoise Earrings: Target

And Kaia joined in on the action again. Isn't she so stinkin' cute? OK...I might be prejudice!

Skirt: Forever 21 {same as Lindsey's I think!}
Aqua Cardigan: Forever 21
Yellow Leather Flower Sandals: Steve Madden
Blooming Bobby: Funky Vintage Lovely

  19. That dress looks fantastic! Love it - and your daughter is beautiful (and I love her shoes!)

  20. Look how cute you look! And I KNOW about the sizing. Patterns can be like that. I used to cringe in college when the seamstress in the costume dept would shout to the whole dressmaking team what size they should make my costumes. EEK!

    But really I just had to stop by and tell you my "What I wore EVO edition"....I haven't done a post on it yet....but if you see any pics where I'm wearing a pink striped shirt...that is OFFICIALLY my homage to April Kennedy. And I totally channeled you when I bought it. I don't wear it as well as you would. But it reminds me of you. :)

  21. You and your daughter are both stinkin cute! :) Love the dress you found. You'll be able to do lots with it.

  22. um SO ADORABLE! love the dress and belt!
