what I wore : the prettiest collar

Thursday, October 18, 2012

the details
hat - thrifted
dress - c/o Blessed Button
pin - thrifted
camera bag - Jo Totes
tights - We Love Colors
shoes- Five Below

Wearing black for me is not easy with four cats. I'm pretty awesome at staying on top of the hair around the house but somehow no matter how much I vaccum, sweep and dust hair always gets on black clothing. It's a good thing I like wearing lots of color! But this dress was so worth having to carry a lint brush in my camera bag. Isn't it the prettiest? The collar is, of course, what won my heart over but those pockets really seal the deal for me. Plus, for the first time on a dress, the pockets are actually at a comfortable place for me to actually put my hands in.

Hope you're having an excellent Thursday! 
xoxo

  1. Those little ears on the shoes are too adorable. I just want to hug them :) I know what you mean about the hair. We have three dogs and they're black and white. So their hair show up on light and dark clothes. I'm not very good at dealing with all the hair around the house though.

  2. I just want your whole wardrobe! Gah!

    Aaaaand I totally thought of you and your blog the other day when I found a HUGE catfish skull washed up beside the lake. I mean like size of my face and I have a big head. He is currently sitting on my porch, but I'm not sure how to clean him. :/

I have dwarf bunny and I have the same problem with hair...but mostly it`s me, whenever I go out of the apartment, and I see her staring at me like =O.O=, I just have to pick her up and pet her and do "the lion king" or something, and -ta da! There is hair. So I have portable brush.I love your outfit BTW, color of cardigan is perfect, and shoes are adorable, like Natasha said, I just want to hug them :D

  8. That collar is stunning!
    I love the little keyhole that gives a peek at your tattoo underneath. That pop of colour on the monochromatic background is really fun. And, as always, love the colour of that cardigan and bag. I've been wanting to get an attractive camera bag, but as of yet haven't really found one that I love that isn't $300 :P. Some day, some day.

  9. I love this outfit. At first I thought it was blue until the close ups.

    Is that pin a rhino or a hippo or what? I can't tell but that's what it looks like and it is surprisingly cute. Typically I don't associate 'cute' with rhino or hippo's. Well, unless hippos do that cute ear thing. It's been a long time since I've seen someone rock a broach before. Hopefully you can bring it back in style.

    1. Haha! I know, I really do wear things other than this yellow cardigan though. It's just such a pretty color and fall seems like the perfect season to wear it a lot. :P

  15. Cutest dress! Love this whole outfit. I pretty much only wear black, so I've come to accept the fact that I'm always going to look like a crazy cat person covered in fluffy grey hair.

  17. That dress is lovely, and those shoes are adorable! I love wearing black, but with all the animals in our house it gets pretty difficult to keep anything hair free! Your hair looks amazing in these photos too xo

  23. This outfit is simply perfect!
    As most of my clothes are black, the cat hair problem is finally one good thing about not having a cat. I still want to have one (or three...)

  24. Five Below shoes? Whaaa-? I'll have to check out my local store to see if they have anything cute like those!

  25. I love your outfit specially your shoes they're so cute!

  26. We have two cats & four dogs-- nothing that is black in our house is safe. We've gotten used to adding on 15 minutes or so to any mornings where black clothing is involved to allow for lint rolling...the animals are totally worth it though~*
