The City Chic sale and my crowded closet inspired this outfit. I’m working on cataloging my closet so I can shop my gaps but more on that later. I bought three dresses during the City Chic Easter sale and I hadn’t worn this dress, the Piping Pin Up Dress, yet.
I only have one problem with this dress – the straps are too long. They kept sliding off my shoulders. It could be quickly fixed if I were at all proficient in sewing, but I am not. Thus I’m going to have to get it altered a bit, but since I got the dress on sale I don’t mind paying for the alterations. Otherwise, I love, LOVE, LOVE this dress! It looks great, the fabric is soft and breathable and it has pockets! I love pockets in a dress. When I bought this dress I imagined wearing it to summer cookouts and parties so here’s hoping I get invited to some.
I am in love of with my new fascinator by one of my favorite bloggers Kaelah Bee. I bought it from her Hive and Honey shop last week and it was in my mail this morning! So excited! I wasn’t planning on wearing it with this outfit, originally I had a gold headband on but I like it with my Piping Pin Up dress. And for good measure one more silly photo.
