Purple Waves

Happy weekend, everyone!

Wow, I'm so tired, haha. This last week flew by and while it wasn't super work-heavy, I'm still exhausted, for some reason. Do you ever have weeks like that? Maybe I'm just getting old. Or maybe it's the weather (cold - though not blizzard cold).

The weather. It's definitely the weather.

I haven't worn this dress nearly often enough, and the same goes for this cardigan, so I threw them together, and forced them to play nice. I think it worked okay, everything considered:




Sweater: Halogen Pleat-Shouldered Cardigan, Nordstrom (similar here and here)
Dress: Count the Waves Dress, Anthro (similar here and here and here)
Shoes: Indigo by Clarks (similar here)
Tights: Frenchi Drop Needle Tights, Nordstrom
Belt: Enchanting Eyes Belt, Anthro 


I'd really rather be wearing these shoes with this outfit, but the shopping ban prevents it. And this is how I feel about that:  >_<

Any fun plans this weekend?

  1. What a difference that belt makes! I was so sad at how big and shapeless this dress was when I tried it, and now I can't help but think of what might have been if only I'd tried it with a belt! You look beautiful!

  3. Amazing what the belt does to structure the dress! I thought it was part of it. Love it with the violet- you're like a flower, all petals and pretty shades!

  11. GRrrr....you're just so stinkin' cute, mah dear. I've always loved that dress. And I'm continually oohing over your hair cut. I think we both know I'd never be able to pull this look off with my too crazy, ultra frizzy hair. But it's awesome to see you rock it.
