what I wore: to the orthodontist - The Dainty Squid

what I wore: to the orthodontist

Monday, February 27, 2012

the details;
shirt - thrifted / vintage
jumper - thrifted
tights - target
belt - thrifted
necklace - Extollo Jewelry
shoes - thrifted (originally from target then restyled by me)

Just something super casual I threw together to wear to the orthodontist. They normally comment on my strange fashion tastes. On this particular occasion my orthodontist said "Do you sew all of your own clothes?" with a sort of strange questioning face. I replied no, that I normally get them at the thrift store. He said something back along the lines of well you're always dressed really snazzy. I must admit I was kind of bummed that no one at the office noticed my tooth necklace though! I felt that it was a completely fitting place to show off my new necklace.

Well, I'm off! My mom just left, we had a day of watching TV, painting nails and moving furniture around. I have a brand new living room to make pretty now. I can't wait to finish it up and share photos!

  3. The necklace is perfect--although possibly slightly intimidating. Have you seen True Grit? (The 2010 version, that is.) Because it made me think of the Bear Man in that movie. Super cute outfit, though! And those shoes look way brighter in color than in the tutorial--I love them even more now!

    Do you have braces? I didn't realize. Of course, I just skimmed through your posts and saw only close-mouthed pictures, which would make sense. I had braces for five years (and jaw surgery, to boot!). It is quite lame.

    1. Yep, I've had braces for about a year now, and I've got about a year left! I don't smile close-mouthed because of my braces though, that's just my smile.

  19. The shirt is so cute! Not sure how I feel about the necklace though! I actually didn't even notice it at first! I think its just because there was so much cute going on with the shirt!

  20. wonderful, wonderful shirt! and actually i must say, i'm quite jealous of that jumper. i hate when people make weird/ snarky comments about what i'm wearing, but oh well! they'll nevah understand :P x

  21. The first thing I noticed was your awesome necklace!! Such the perfect theme for the orthodontist! Teeth kinda freak me out, I don't know why, so does the underside of a mushroom...all that weird spacing...but I do appreciate the beauty of its design. ha ha! :) I love the overall dress...I think you dress very snazzy too! You encourage me to be more put together. :) Hearts, Janna Lynn

  23. You are too cute! I love that blouse, although it would terrify my boyfriend's brother. Which would give me even of an incentive to wear it.

  24. LOL! I study tooth evolution at my job and would have a total (joyful) flip-out if I saw your necklace! Where on earth did you find it?? I like how the middle is incisors, flanked by canines, and then by molars... so perfect. Next appointment wear all black so they have to notice!

    1. Alexis, there is information on where everything in the outfit is from, including the necklace, right under the photos. :)

    2. Oops! Of course. I'm apparently not the most observant late-night reader.

  25. Maybe they did notice, but were too intimidated to mention anything?

    I hope your treatment is going well! I had braces (twice - first because of a malpractice on the orthodontist's part), the second time for 10 years, so I know how eager you must be to get them off.

    Adorable, as always!

  27. Somehow I don't think I could purchase a tooth necklace without wondering if the creator is secretly a serial killer.

  28. Oh man! I love the teeth necklace for the ortho - hilarious and snazzy! Maybe they are so used to seeing teeth, their eyes gloss over them.... of maybe they were overcome with the awesomeness and couldn't speak :)
    Hope the appointment went ok!

  29. love the outfit and love love love the necklace - they were fools not to have noticed it!!

  30. Haha well, at least they noticed something. The first time I went to the orthodontist he asked me if I didn't bring my mom.. I could only stare at him and finally mumbled a 'no?'. I am 23 and living on my own for years.. I guess most of the kids there do when they visit the first time, but seriously? haha

    1. Haha! Once at the dentist they wouldn't talk to me about my insurance and payment information because they wanted to talk to my mom about it. I was like "....but I'll be paying for it?"

  31. So strange that they didn't see the necklace! I think it's perfect for the occasion, though it did kinda creep me out...

    ReplyDelete
  32. Haha, clever girl! I was just about to ask how did your orthodontist react to your tooth necklace. So weird he didn't notice it. :)

    ReplyDelete
  33. Haha that tooth necklace is so amazing! I love it!

    I have to admit, I hated my orthodontist. He was a really horrible man and just the word freaks me out now!

    You looked mega cute though!

  34. I love your shirt, its gorgeous. And although teeth kind of creep me out, your necklace is incredibly cool and perfect for the occasion! x

  35. I can't believe they didn't notice your necklace! I was a dental assistant back in the day & wouldn't have missed noticing it! Where did you find it? Cracked me right up!

    ReplyDelete
  36. Wow, that's an outfit that really reminds me of the 90's (in a good way of course)! You look so cute!

    ReplyDelete
  37. Those shoes are so cool! Definitely going to do the tutorial!!

  38. That necklace is super classy! Not to mention that is the perfect orthodontist outfit. I have to admit, I had braces from age 17-20 and I miss them, not sure why. I always enjoyed being able to pick out the different colors. I had different color combos that I had named, for instance yellow & orange was called "mac n cheese" lol. Do you change the colors or do you just stick with one ?

    xo, Katie

  39. Snazzy is the best compliment a person can receive, I feel. I really love this outfit. The blouse is killer, and I have been coveting a good denim jumper dress for a while.

  40. Hi Kaylah. I love your blog! My mom had the same orthodontist as me many years before and told me she thought back then he was so cute. I always felt creeped out when I went in for check ups because he would call me by my moms name.

  41. My thoughts went a little like this "ohh, such a super cute top.. OH MY GOD THAT NECKLACE IS AMAZING!!".

  45. I was watching Oddities today, and they were searching for an object for Elvira...and they came across a beautiful tooth necklace from Fiji. I thought you might appreciate that!

  46. Seriously, no one noticed your tooth necklace? A little crazy, I noticed it right away, it's bizarre, but in a good and awesome/creepy way! I love it. I also like how you wore it with such a whimsical and fun outfit, that top is so adorable and I love your overall dress!
