I love weekends. I really love three-day weekends. I slept till 11 today. It was beautiful. Anyways, here are some pretty things:
Forever 21 Summer Tiki Dress, $17.80 at forever21.com, Frye Kara Trapunto T-Strap, $136.80 at zappos.com: I picked up this dress a week or so ago at Forever 21, and I love it. First off, it's less than $20. That's a win in my book. It's not the sturdiest dress in the world, but it costs less than going out to dinner, so I've accepted it. The cut is adorable, a flattering sweetheart neckline, fitted to the waist, a-line skirt. The print is a little on the funky/tribal side, but I think it's really fun and festive. Plus, since the print has so many colors, it makes the dress easy to accessorize. I like to pull out the brown in the print with a brown leather belt and a pair of brown heels like these. It feels very summery and easygoing, but at the same time it looks very polished and chic.
Mod Cloth Object of Confection Dress, $94.99 at modcloth.com: Last night I was telling a friend about how I'm making pumpkin spice cupcakes today, and mentioned how I'm really a closet '50s housewife. And then she turns to me and goes, "sweetie, you've been out of the closet on that one for a while." So, in keeping with my repressed retro tendencies, how cute is this polka dot dress? I love the shape, with the sweet little neckline and the slight a-line skirt. The polka dots and layers on the skirt make it look like a little wedding cake, but the red hue keeps it from feeling to formal and bridal.
