We Could Ring Out Like Mission Bells


Cardigan: Thrift $7, Dress: Costa Blanca $10, Shoes: Payless $13, Sunglasses: borrowed from my sister

Aren't these sunglasses awesome?! i just love the gold on the top, i borrowed these from my sister when i very conviently forgot my own at home and it was super bright out. She bought them at a Value Village for about two dollars and i am so jealous :) i totally need to find a pair. So it has been a really long time since i have posted a really girly outfit. This is definitely more my old style then what i would describe as my style now, its funny how fast those things can change even when i look back just a few months ago. I have had this dress for literally ages, three years maybe, when it starts to get tight then i know i definitely have a problem!! I remember i found it for the awesome price of ten dollars and when i came out of the change room my friend told me she hated it. I totally disagreed and bought it anyways, the funny thing is now she actually likes it. I hope everyone had a wonderful day!!

Ohhh those sunglasses are really quite amazing! I love them, and your dress is very pretty. So funny that your friend said she hated it. I think some of my friends would probably dislike the majority of my wardrobe while others would love it. Different strokes

the sunnies are so retro, i love them! i think sunnie can be a good way to mix up a simple sort of outfit. loving your dress too, the print is gorgeous. funny how ppl change their tune about clothing, when i got pair of lace up boots ages ago now my sister hated them and told me i looked goth etc. then what is she obssessed with buying this year? blah, annoying kinda but oh well!

Amber Blue Bird said...

wow I cant believe those glasses were only two bucks. Thats quite a score your sister got.

Louise said...

Great outfit! I LOOOOVE your sunnies xx

According to Annika said...

Hahaha, I have a lot of clothes like that, too - I never ever weigh myself but I know that when I can't button those jeans or zip up that dress, I know that it's time to, I don't know, take a walk or something. ;)

I do love those sunglasses, agree with Emma, the retro feel is awesome! You look absolutely adorable.

Actually I would say that sometimes my style changes in the matter of weeks - I will look at something I wore not even a month ago and think "umm... what were my thought here, exactly?". But I kind of like that, it means that we're willing to take some risks and try new things, and that our style is constantly evolving - the way it should be!

These glasses are awesome. Such a nice shape! A lovely outfit all in all. I think it's ridiculous how quickly style can change! I have gone through a ridiculous amount of fazes in my 20 years!

Yeah, the sunglasses really add interest to the outfit! They're really fun. I'm kinda jealous of them too, and what a great deal!

Have a lovely weekend, doll!

I have sunglasses that look so similar.
I feel so sneaky with em-- I'll wear my pretty dresses with like no makeup and I'll pop the sunglasses on.. and then feel very Audrey!
