Same Dress, Different Day

One of the things that I really struggle with in stretching my wardrobe is seeing pieces in a different light.

I enjoyed this dress so much on Thursday that I wore it again Sunday. I wore it without the jeans to church, but I added the jeans before I ran errands because it was so cold.

I’m not normally real big on jeans with a dress, but occasionally I find a combination that works for me.

I feel kind of bad for these boots. They are spectacular vintage boots from Neiman Marcus that I got at Good Will for 5 bucks. Or maybe Salvation Army. One or the other though.

But all you ever see is this:

Alannah got me this bag for my birthday. You can’t really see it, but the clasp is this ridiculous tunrlock thing more suited to a bank vault. It is AWESOME. And fun to play with. And the leather? Like BUTTER.

My 2nd favorite Haute Hardware piece…

And that’s that!~ I really want to focus on trying to mix it up and wear things a different way, I have been feeling sorry for myself because I can’t shop like I used to, and it’s just silly.

I'm not usually a fan of the dress with jeans, but you make it look so good! I think this particular dress works because paired with jeans, it kind of looks like a long, flowy tunic.

and I agree -- it's a shame those boots don't see more daylight up top!

Hi I hope you don't mind me leaving a comment but I just found your blog and it's very inspiring! Got lots of ideas for things to wear and I have to say, you are really beautiful! What foundation/powder do you use btw? It looks like you have similiar skin tone to me but don't end up looking shiny like I do in most photos.

Plus, that bag is simply gorgeous!

dirtymistress11,

Thank you! I put on a ton f moisterizer and then wait for several minutes before using a powder foundation. From the drugstore I like Neutrogena Mineral Sheers COMPACT (the brush filled thing does not work as well at all) in Classic Ivory 10, and from the nicer brands, Studio Fix from MAC in, I think NC15? Whatever the lightest one is!~

I like the dress with the jeans! Thanks for the blog love and adding the sisters tab! I always feel intimated to comment, because i'm not one of your "stylish bloggers"! weird. I still always read it!

Ha ha!~ Oh Michelle, I feel the same way about Mom blogs. I read them, and enjoy them, but never know what to say, because I'm not a mom!
