Outfit Post: Dressing Outside of the Box

April 25, 2012


Outfit Details:
Dress: Jason Wu for Target
Earrings+Bracelets: H&M
Purse: Dana Buchman
Lace Socks: H&M
Shoes: Steve Madden
Bow: Emilee Pink & Blue shop (Etsy)

Well, first off, this outfit is a totally "dressing outside of the box" moment. Pretty much because of the hair and the socks+shoes. I have seen countless fashion mags that have used the socks+shoe pair and it looks fabulous. I can't decide if I really like it on me or not. Maybe it's the outfit as a whole, but I won't lie, this one wasn't one of my 'favorites'. Also, I don't usually pull my hair back like this, or wear it with it's natural curl. This wouldn't be a fashion blog without trail-and-error outfits, in my opinion! :)

  18. I don't think I could pull off the socks with heels look, but it looks lovely on you!
    P.S. Every time you post photos, I'm always trying to figure out where the picture was taken, since I now know you're at Mizzou and in Columbia. Creepy? Maybe a little.
    P.P.S. Thanks for the compliment on my California style! I was afraid I looked completely Midwestern and out of place out here :P
    P.P.P.S. Congrats to you on grad school, too! I'll be getting my MFA through the low-res program at Antioch LA. So excited :)

  26. Thanks for the sweet comment! I love this dress, I have it in the polka dot pattern:)

    And yes! I LOVE movies!! My boyfriend and I own over 200 DVDs...yikes. I actually read that that's a hobby of yours on your 'Tell Me About Yourself' and got excited. And I saw you listed 'Bully' as a favorite documentary, that's definitely on my list of movies to see. But we should definitely chat movies sometime!
