What I wore; copycat - The Dainty Squid

What I wore; copycat

Thursday, September 01, 2011

the details;
dress - forever 21
ring - c/o Maie Dae
belt - modcloth
shoes - c/o Blowfish Shoes
nails - chine glaze crackle with sally hansen quick dry underneath.

Happy September 1st!! The weather here in Ohio is perfectly fitting for the first day of September, it's cool, and crisp. The perfect day for a dress, tights and a sweater. I love it! Recently I've had a lot of luck thrifting clothes. Previously it was something I merely browsed over quickly but since actually looking through racks I've found so many goodies - especially for fall! The only thing I seem to be lacking is fall colored tights. I'm thinking my closet needs some oranges, reds, and dark greens!

The title of this outfit post is based off the fact I bought this dress after I saw Elycia rockin' it! It looked too cute to resist! I'm really glad I bought it too, even if it was a spur of the moment purchase. It's lightweight so it's perfect for warmer weather, but looks perfect with lots of layers as well. I'm looking forward to wearing it again and styling it another way.

Hope you all have a perfect first day of September! I've got to head back to work now, I'm working on a new blog design for The Dainty Squid. It looks so awesome, I'm really excited to finish it up and share.
xoxo

  24. I have to admit that when I first saw your new hair colour, I was a little bit... puzzled.
    But now that I see it on you, I really think it suits you amazingly! The colour perfectly matches your nice skin colour and shows more your eyes... well no nedd to say more it's gonna sound weird lol but I really like it now...

    which proves only idiots never change of opinion! It's really cool to be surprised and in good :-)
    Take care!

  29. Wow! You are rocking the hell out of that green hair! It's gorgeous! And funnily enough, it matches the grass/greenery on your lower arm :)

    I love those tights too, and the peter pan collar on the dress.. and the whole look!
    Happy first day of Fall (and first of Spring here) - tights weather - YAY!

  30. I LOVE your green hair! I might have to get up the confidence to dye my own hair a cool color :) right now i'm stuck with basic brown

  31. yes elycia does totally rock it, but so do you kaylah! that's what's so fantastic about style, you can both wear the same dress, & look good in different ways. now for some reason i doubt that you're lacking autumn color tights, but maybe i'm just saying that cause i'm kinda a tight ho. i own a drawer stuffed full, which i barely get to wear, in this texas heat.
