Just right

Aside from my obvious dark tresses, I otherwise felt like I was channeling Goldilocks in this dress.  I have this same dress in red (I wore it on my blog last year), but hadn't worn this baby blue version until now.  It's decidedly sweet lolita and doesn't exactly fit into my daily work life or anything, but it's a very sweet piece.  I ordered both dresses at the same time because I was unsure of sizing, and the dresses were quite cheap anyway.  I figured one wouldn't fit and I'd sell the other, but much to my surprise, both fit fine (though this one is a little more roomy), and I couldn't quite bring myself to sell one yet.  So both are staying in my wardrobe for now.  I have attachment issues with my clothes!

I also knew that I'd have to pair my wooden house purse with this dress because, well, how could you not??  I'm sometimes amazed at the items I've managed to find on eBay.  I don't even hear a whole lot about eBay anymore (there used to be a ton of commercials for it and it was really popular for a while), but there are so many hard-to-find and unique pieces available there.  I hate bidding for items (though I have been lucky a couple of times), but the "buy it now" option is fantastic.  This little house purse is definitely one-of-a-kind and I'm so happy it's mine!

  1. I cannot get over how completely adorable this look is!

  2. I hate bidding too! Losing an auction on something you really want (especially in the last couple of minutes/seconds) is the WORST.feeling.ever!!

    Great outfit!


  3. Okay so this is definitely one of the most unique peices I've seen on your and you have many fabulous, quirky and unique things. Lovely though. That blue is a great color on you.

  4. That dress is adorable. And ah the house purse is so unique! You always have such awesome purses. I love ebay, I'm quite addicted to it. I hate bidding too, I've only bid once or twice, and while fun, it sucks if you lose and actually wanted it

  5. I've never done eBay because of the whole bidding thing, but I think I need to start. This dress is so pretty, and I LOVE that purse! So cute.
    I have attachment issues with my clothes, too. Haha! It's so hard to get rid of things...

  6. that dress is adorable !!! too cute, you look pretty <3 plus you give it a different style n fits very well with you :3

  7. Cute dress, and I love, love, love that house purse! I do think you are luck to be able to find such awesome items. I'm not very good at hunting down cool stuff on eBay... I tend to have bad luck when I have to bid as well. Maybe you could do a post with your best eBay hunting tips? :) ♡

  8. So true! One doesn't hear about eBay nearly as much any more, perhaps because there is such a wide abundance of online shops these days compared to in the earlier years of its life. It's still a major shopping staple for me though, especially because I live in a small town with no vintage stores and very little in terms of fashion resources (let alone for a vintage loving gal) to begin with. I get most of my inexpensive accessories like skinny belts and faux leather cross body bags, plus some vintage and other types of fashions on eBay still and doubt I'll ever stop shopping there at least once in a while.

    Love your charming sweet dress and equally amazing wooden house handbag. That is such a stellar find!

  9. Doesn't get much cuter than this!


  10. Oooo the side ruflles on this dress make it even more awesome! Ugh, agreed - eBay bidding is fun once in a while when you get a good deal, but for the most part, it's just really stressful!

  11. I have major attachment issues with clothes, so I know exactly what you are talking about. This dress is super cute! Why wouldn't you want it in two different colors? ;)


  12. The dress is lovely! If it didn;t have the 3 little bears on it, it would def be work appropriate. I love the combination with that incredible purse.
    I am now exploring that website...I feel this could be dangerous for my wallet hehe

  13. Aww this dress is the cutest ever! I absolutely love this shade of blue on you and the ruffles on the dress are the best detail. I have attachment issues with clothes too, so I understand!
