what I wore; a modern little red - The Dainty Squid

what I wore; a modern little red

Wednesday, January 18, 2012

the details:
belt - Modcloth
socks - Kohls
pin - thrifted
shoes - Trip Oxford c/o Wanted Shoes

I am SO in love with this outfit! I feel like everything about it flows so well. Plus knee high socks are just about my favorite thing ever right now, even if I have to pull them up every three minutes. 

Hope you all have an awesome day! I'm going to work on finishing up the owl update for Circus Bear Vintage today. It'll go live on January 25th, just in time to get a present for your Valentine.  I'm so excited!
xoxo

  2. I love the dress and the pin :)
    I have the same problem with high socks so I don't wear them often. On most regular girls they go up to mid-thigh but on me they barely reach my knee é_è

    Cute shoe-GIF^^

  3. This look is pretty much just perfection.
    Can't go wrong with knee high socks, either! I love that it's been unseasonably warm in Ohio this winter. It's so much more fun to get dressed in the morning when it's not FREEZING outside.

  33. Holy cow! I love this dress. In the first picture I thought that it had little sunny side up eggs on it, which would be awesome - but it's still pretty great. ;)
