what I wore : covered in stars - The Dainty Squid

what I wore : covered in stars

Tuesday, April 23, 2013

 details 
dress - Target
collar pins - Vinca via Fab
brooch - Kirbee Lawler
belt - Modcloth (a few years back)
ring - ebay
tights - Modcloth
boots - Forever 21 (two years ago)

I know I say every dress or skirt or whatever piece of my outfit is my favorite but seriously, this dress! I originally laughed at it. It's a denim dress covered in stars, c'mon! That's super tacky. It's like Canada (famous in my mind for denim) and America (patriotic stars!!) had a baby and it was this dress. But for some reason I had to try it on and when I did I was done for. It's surprisingly super comfortable. My favorite part is that it's perfect for summer. It has sleeves so I don't need a cardigan. I don't need to wear a slip underneath it (although I probably still will because I really love wearing slips!) and it can easily be dressed up or down depending on shoe choice. I dig it!! I'd actually like head back to Target and see if they have the other print which was just plain polka dots in my size. I wish I was more patient about trying things on in the store. I think I'd be surprised how many thing I actually like on my body.

Have a great Tuesday!
xoxo

  2. I like how you've styled this dress, it's reaaally cute! And I also wish I was more patient about trying things on; it is always surprising what actually looks good (as well as what looks atrocious).

  4. I remember seeing this dress, as well as those polka dotted jeans you showed off recently, at Target last time I was over the border, but stupid me I only laughed at them at the time! I should have given them a chance, Canada IS all about denim after all (seriously. I'm currently debating a denim jacket, and I'm already wearing jeans. I also have a denim vest. 3 piece suit, really :P). I love that ring!! The neighbourhood I grew up in was predominantly Russian jewish, so I saw lots of charms to ward off the evil eye that looked just like that ring.

  13. That dress is super cute on you (and I love that the belt matches your new, gorgeous hair PERFECTLY)! I would have scoffed at it on the hanger at Target too, but it's really adorable on. And I love love love those boots. I actually really like wearing slips too (or shorts under dresses) - it makes me feel more secure (plus slips are so pretty)!

  20. Canada famous for denim? As someone from Canada, I've NEVER heard of that before! I always associated the US with denim. Texas Tuxedo, and all.

  25. I love your ink, and I love how you wear patterns with your marvelous body art and pull it off every time.

    oh, and the dress is cute as well. ;) I feel like stars are making a comeback in the fashion scene these days, which I don't mind, cause I've always been a celestial girl myself.

    love,

  30. I snatched up a whole bunch of cute dresses to try on at Target and this was one of them (except with the polka dots) and it ended up being the only one I bought.
