I think it's an unwritten rule that every twee, kitschy or retro blogger has to have this dress (or at least must have it on her wish list). It had been out of stock for the longest time, and I ordered it the day it came back in stock. It really is one of my most treasured dresses (though I do wish it were slightly more forgiving on top -- this fabric has ZERO stretch to it!). I always end up wearing it the same way, though (see how else I've worn it here), and I wanted to figure out a way to remix it and give it some longevity. Because it's sleeveless, it's too tricky for a pinafore (though if I had a long enough skirt, it'd be great underneath as a button-down top -- next time!), so I went scrounging for a sweater or top to layer over it. I remembered I had this cheap 3/4-sleeved tee from Forever 21 lying around, and it happens to match the darker teal of the pie tins perfectly. I just rolled it up a little and put a belt over it, and presto -- a whole new way to wear this kooky dress!
I wish I could have worn different shoes with this, though. We were having a spring-like thaw when I took these, but the snow wasn't melted nearly enough to wear something other than boots! I already have spring fever, which is unfortunate, seeing as we have at least another month of cold, snowy weather ahead of us here. Patience is not my strong suit.
I'm off to see the tour of American Idiot tonight! Two of my friends from college are in it, and I'm super excited to see them. I hope you have a great Thursday!
