I want to love this dress. It’s flattering, it’s a pretty color, the fabric is really nice. But I just feel very “meh” about it.
I know it’s a nice dress, I just don’t particularly care for the way it looks on me. I feel boring.
I think I might sign up for the swap group over on flickr and start with this dress. It’s not worthless, and I’ve seen other girls look quite cute in it, but I think it’s just somehow not my style.
I do love these shoes though. I have them in black as well, and the black are leather while these are not. I do wish they were leather but they are comfortable and cute, and they have held up really well.
This skull bead necklace is another one I made because I was bored with my outfit options. I often make a new piece of jewelry to wear and then build an outfit around that when I am bored or uninspired. It’s really nice to be able to do that and it gives me somewhere to start on an otherwise uninspired day.
I plan to replace some of the cheaper looking gold chain when I get my chain order in, but overall I really love how it came out.
I have a bracelet on each wrist because I over compensate with this dress, I try to accessorize my way into feeling good in it.
But I really think it’s time to just give up on it. Or perhaps put it away until winter and see if I can come up with a better way to wear it then. Or maybe just swap it. ;)
