What I wore; the most fabulous collar! - The Dainty Squid

What I wore; the most fabulous collar!

Saturday, December 24, 2011

the details:
coat - thrifted / vintage
scarf - Target
belt - Modcloth (last year)
shoes - Hot Topic (probably 6 years ago?)

There has never been a dress with a more fabulous collar than this one. It was love at first sight! The whole dress is a nice thick, warm material (that is suuuuper soft!) and the collar always sits perfectly. I have so many dresses with great collars that never sit flat, it's such a bummer. I need ten more dresses like this in different lengths and colors to get me through the cold weather.

This was our first big(ish) snow of the winter. We got around 3 or 4 inches total and then it quickly melted. In a way it's disappointing but it will make the winter go so much faster! Although, I definitely need at least one good snow to play in! I love sled riding, especially with my nieces and nephew!

Well, I have to run! I hope you all have a fabulous christmas eve,  if you celebrate,  and if not, I hope you have a great day regardless!!
xoxo

  22. Those shoes are similar to a pair I tried on today! I fell in love with them but they are a bit out of my budget. You can see them here - http://www.schuh.co.uk/womens-black-irregular-choice-cheese-on-toast-wdg/1158637060

    From one cat lady to another, I know you will appreciate how amazing these are!
    Merry Christmas xxx

  27. Adorable outfit from top to bottom. I love the mix of animals with the elephant belt and kitty shoes and the stockings are gorgeous. Your outfit posts make me want to fit nice coats. They're hard to find in Florida thrift spots.

  28. I'm so in love with this dress, so I went to order it and it says it comes in "one size" and that worries me, I normally wear a size 4, do you think it will fit?

  37. Thank you guys so so so much!! <3

    Cupcake Katie, Irregular Choice makes the most fabulous shoes!!

    Day Old Tee, It's hard to say! I'm normally a 6 in dresses and if I were any bigger or the dress were any smaller it wouldn't fit. In the romwe newsletter a few days ago I saw some pretty thin girls wearing it and it looked like it fit great! Here are the pictures if that helps! http://a.r509.net/11507-88888-60545587/ROMWE.COM.newsletter/Dear_Kaylah_please_notice_this_week_we_launch_a_retro_peter_pan_collar_dress_especially_for_you/web.aspx

    Helen, thanks for the suggestion, that certainly helps me plan content! I'll keep that in mind for sure!!

  43. Oh my goodness this is really great - it has to be my favorite. Along with the recent wonderland one.

    I love your What I Wore series so much, especially because we have a very similar shape so I can actually get real inspiration and not just, you know, "Oh, those shorts look good on Kate Moss." Not particularly helpful.

    So thanks. :)
