An Outfit (Deconstructed)...

Two outfits in a row featuring printed dresses...Watch out, I'm living the crazy life here friends.

This particular frock was a result of the one of the recent shopping expeditions with my mom. Truth be told, we were both a little freaked out by the print...it's pretty intense, but, reasoning that the "meh" I've been feeling about my closet of late might be due to the absence of any excitement to balance out all the black and grey and stripes, I took a risk.

There's also the fact that the dress (despite my general aversion to "loud" clothes) just made me...happy, which is really reason enough to take the plunge, yes?

Ok, the details:

  • Dress -- Madewell
  • Yellow & White Bead Necklace -- Madewell
  • Gold Necklace -- Vintage
  • Bag -- Vintage Coach
  • Shoes -- J. Crew

I think you look fabulous in the dress, even better than the model! Every closet needs a little excitement.

I love prints and this dress is fantastic on you. (My favourite pieces of my own have loud prints on them)

Love the dress on you! I think we should only be buying clothes that make us happy. No matter how surprising the choices may be, even to ourselves!

I have this dress(!) and feel the same way. A friend highly influenced the purchase, and I'm so glad she did.
