Bits and Pieces

Hi everyone! Happy Thursday! I chipped my back molar a couple nights ago, so spent a good part of yesterday getting my tooth fixed. Suffice it to say, there's nothing like a visit to the dentist's chair, followed by an afternoon of half-my-face-feels-like-it's-been-stuffed-with-wool numbness, and an evening of ow-why-is-the-right-side-of-my-face-sore-oh-yeah-that to kill any desire to wear cute clothes and take OOTD photos.

Which is why you're getting a "bits and pieces" post. It's sort of like Trader Joe's All-Fruit Bars Ends & Pieces...only, with blog-fodder. (I <3 TJ's Ends & Pieces, by the way. Tasty! And economical to boot!)

Yep, that's what you get here - quality remainders, folks. Quality.

Okay, so here's an OOTD, I snapped whilst in a fitting room, sometime after Christmas. (I know it's sometime after Christmas as I'm wearing my Christmas gift):

Shoes: Me Too Ruffle Flats (similar here and here)


Some fun goodies I ran across while out and about recently:

Tory Burch 'Robinson' Envelope Wristlet - I love that it really looks like an envelope!


 And oooh, the very pretty (and highly functional) inside of the Tory Burch 'Robinson' Envelope Wristlet! Though, I think, in terms of a new wallet option, my heart might be set on this one instead (I can't resist the little hedgehogs!)


I love this outfit! Too fun and retro-sexy. Makes me wish it was summer. And that I was 19 again, so I could pull this off. (Oh, and a more budget-conscious option here: If You Dot It Top and Soulmates Dotted Tap Shorts



Here's the Kate Spade 'Belina' Dress, which I tried on in a size 2 in these (rather blurry--sorry!) photos. The size 2 was a touch big on me - I think I'd be safe sizing down to a size 0, were I to buy this. It's made of silk, is lined, has pockets, and an exposed back zipper. The size 2 hit me about an inch and a half above my knee, so was a nice length, I thought. It's got 3/4 sleeves. Overall, I definitely liked it - and Rowan pointed out that it matches my phone case - but I don't know if I love it enough on. Wishlisted for consideration at sale time.

Hope you're having a great day!

    1. Thanks! I don't know if it was that I was good or that both the DH and my mom were at a loss on what to get me (there was some collaboration on this one). ;) I think it was more the latter.

      I think you'd look amazing in that KS dress!

  4. Oh, that blazer is absolutely rocking.  /grabby hands.  I love the shirt/combo too!  They way that the colors sort of mirror each other is great.

  7. I love that jacket!
    I don't love the Belina Dress as much as I'd hoped I would, though, there's something off about the shape. Does look lovely with the iPhone case though!

    1. Thanks! Yes, I'm ambivalent about the dress too. It might help to see it on in the right size first...

    1. Aw, thanks! I don't do much - it's kind of poofy and frizzy when left alone, so I after shampooing (I just use neutrogena shampoos & conditioners - nothing fancy), I put argan oil in it (Josie Maran's) and once it's dry, straighten it with a flat-iron.
