what I wore; zigzags and star knees! - The Dainty Squid

what I wore; zigzags and star knees!

Monday, March 05, 2012

the details:
sweater - c/o Romwe
dress - thrifted / vintage
belt - thrifted
necklace - Extollo Jewelry
tights - c/o Modcloth
boots - kmart

I've kind of been wearing these boots and tights non-stop both together and separately with other things but I seriously cannot get enough of either one. Speaking of these boots, I actually went back to kmart and bought another pair in another color. (PS. They're totally on clearance for $13 right now, score!!) I love them, they're so comfy! Plus they wipe clear after I trudge through the mud which is a must for me.

Doesn't this dress look like this one from Modcloth that I wore back in the summer time? This one actually had long sleeves but I tend to feel like I look awkward in long sleeve dresses so I chopped them off. Now I'm thinking about taking a few inches off the bottom. Altering vintage dresses is so much fun.

Hope you're having a great day! I'm going to work on editing the one million photos that I got from my weekend with Elycia. We had a blast - made a couple videos, took a ton of photos and started planning some awesome future things! I can't wait to share everything over the next few weeks.
xoxo

    1. Nice to meet you too! Sorry it was so awkward. After I got in the car I was like "oh god, I should go back and apologize for being awkward". Hah! :)

    3. I tried to warn you before that I'm totally awkward, ha. Plus I was having a really weird day cuz it was the first time they ever left me in charge of the store and I was super stressed. AND you narrowly missed an encounter with a little boy peeing his pants ('I'm peein on myself! Look!')

      I recognized you and wanted to say hi before you left, but as soon as I overcame my shyness and just did it I realized 'yeah, you probably should have had something to say, dork' :)

  18. I'm so jealous that you have these boots! Our Kmart never got them in. I never shop at Kmart, and for a while I became obsessive about finding them, but sadly never did.

    Those tights look so awesome because it's kind like they are skin colored!
