This dress caught my attention while thrifting. It wasn't exactly my style, but it it pretty close. Loved the super thin cotton and the full skirt, and of course, the roses. Love rose prints. But the colors made me hesitate (I'm not usually good with tan colors) and the slightly high waist was no bueno. Basically, because it sort of gives off that maternity vibe. Plus, I've gained so much weight that my tummy is bigger. I'm NOT preggo, but this dress sort of makes me nervous that I'll be looking preggo... Oh, and it has a ties at the waist that tie in the back!! I actually hate this on a dress or shirt or anything unless it is sort of formal or more like a sash with a big bow. Actual bows are ok.
But when I put it on I just like it anyway.
It's not actually fair to blame the dress for me looking preggo anyway! I blame the 200 Samoas I can't stop eating! Damn it cookies! Why you gotta be so delicious??

Necklace and earrings all talked about here
I have to say that my earrings from Drifted are my favorites. I wear them almost every single day. These are kind a deep red velvet with black netting and beyond lightweight (super important!!). They happen to match this outfit, but I wear them with everything. I almost think of them as little red extensions in my hair, because they are so long and noticeable. I've also worn and talked about them here, as well as MANY other posts. I am going to say they are on their way to becoming a 'signature' item/look of mine. So, now I am desperately craving another pair, these Hustler Whiskers. Hand-made and I so WANT! You know I need 'em to 'cause everyday I'm hustlin'. lolzzzz
