The Blog Formerly Known As Practical Paralegalism
Nah. This dress is the mostest wonderfulest evah.
So I’m submitting it to Sheila’s Dress Week of Horrors or Dress of Horrors Week (there are so many ways that this can be interpreted that I had a little linguistic meltdown and my family forbade me to use the computer, but I snuck on for you, dear readers, all for you), and hoping this was not an invitation to wear a dress I look beastly in. ‘Cause that’s way too easy.
On the other hand, finding a $120 dress marked down to $16, pre color-blocked (yay, no thinking!) and cleverly ruched to flatter a pencil figure is much harder.
I even wore my orange “statement” necklace for the second day in a row, because I love wearing orange, even though it doesn’t love me. I’ve tried to avoid being a style blogger cliche and haven’t posed with a clutch bag (yet), but oh how hard it has been for me to resist the statement, sometimes in the form of a bubble, necklace craze. I studied the J. Crew knockoffs on eBay for hours. Hours of my life I will never get back, I know.
But when this statement necklace popped up in a Jada’s Jewels daily deal email, so cheeky and orange, yet dainty, I thought now maybe I can wear a statement necklace that won’t wear me. So that’s how it went down.
Plus, orange goes with everything, right?
It’s still hot and in the low 80s here in the Deep South (the high 80s in our office, and no, it’s still not menopause), so I can’t give up my fave gladiator sandals yet.
Have you put away your summer sandals and busted out that wonderful first pair of fall tights yet?
