Baby, Could You Blow My Heart Up?

Hello, hello! I am wearing only purple & black today. I got some fun looks when I was out & about, perhaps it was the heels? People usually choose the (more sensible) option of boots around here, but I am not sensible. I am very much into the ridiculous.

I bought this dress at Kohl's a while ago, but haven't worn it much lately. It takes more confidence for me to wear something with a straight skirt--I can manipulate my silhouette much more efficiently in a poofy skirt, or at least in something that flares out. But I'm running low on wardrobe choices (and definitely need to do laundry), and it was warmer out today, so I figured I'd give it a go.

I'm not sure how I feel about the tights + dress color pairing, but other than that, I like this outfit. &, yes, I'm obsessed with these shoes, how did you guess?

You know how I said I'd be making some improvements around here? Yes, well, one of those things is to have Theme Days! I'm planning on Inspiration Wednesday (favorite lookbook/chictopia outfits; pretty pictures; inspiring clothing from TB & Craftster; Polyvore sets; & fabulous quotes) and Friday Favorites (blog & shop features; fabulous tutorials; the newest thing I'm gushing about). I'm really excited about sticking to a regular posting schedule, and sharing a bunch of my favorite people & things with you guys. I'll also be making some layout changes (and adding a banner!), so keep your eyes peeled for that!

I'd stick around & say more, but it's going to be a late night: plays to read & papers to write!


  1. I like the idea of regular themed posting!

    You look adorable in that dress. And I really like your jacket too. You're so cute!

  2. I think the jacket breaks up the print a bit more and does more "manipulating" that you were talking about. and I like the random color of the tights, oh if only I were young again!

  3. Hannah - I'm glad, I know I'm certainly excited for it! I figured it'd be good to have days when people could count on posts, & it will make me less erratic.

    Hee, thanks, darling!

    Jessica - Thank you!! Oh, you're right--I always need the definition of my waist to balance out my hips & the jacket does that. & you know, if you can pull off colorful hair, you can pull off colorful tights for sure! ;)

  4. Love the shoes. Oxfords are the best!
    And I think the dress is adorable.

  5. I'd wear that dress in heart beat!!! (but a size 22 please!) hehe
    I love how you say "it was warmer out..." ha!! I'd freeze to death!
    love the jacket! I think I have a jacket just like it!
    Veronika was encouraging me to post my outfits on LB
    but I'm not mainstream, Tanys just ...Tany!
    (why am I speaking in 3rd person?) ROTFL

    THE your gorgeous in this outfit and I'd wear it too!
    There!:) oxoxo:)


I love hearing from people! Feel free to leave thoughts, questions, etc. Thanks, dolls!
