Yay & Boo

I got my car repaired today. Yay! It cost a lot of money b/c they did some damage while stealing my battery. Boo! I got a discount on the window replacement by bargain (thanks to Rand's suggestion.) Yay! The guy didn't get the glass out of the car but did clear out a stray earring off the floorboard that I meant to grab - and threw it away. Boo! The car wash guy gave me free tokens for the vacuum even though I didn't buy a carwash. Yay! I cut myself while vacuuming up all the broken glass. Boo! I looked cute. Yay! But everything was a little lumpy. Boo!

I layered this batternburg lace shell over a dark brown tank to mimic the pattern of the skirt. I really like the affect. But, the lace shell has a few sequins on it, so it look a little lumpy and bumpy under my cardigan. So even though I liked the outfit, I don't think I will repeat it.

What I Wore While Sucking Up Glass:

2010-03-24 combo

  • brown/cream patterned skirt (Target)
  • brown tank (Ann Taylor)
  • lace shell (via Goodwill)
  • mustard cardi (Target, new via Goodwill)
  • brown belt (??)
  • brown boots (Cloudwalkers via Avenue)
  • leaf brooches (via Goodwill)
  • fly stick pin (vintage via antique shop)

Pretty dress!

I didn't even realize it wasn't a dress until you said that!

Also - who throws away a stranger's earring? What the heck?

Sarah said...

Looks like a dress - even after I read that it was a skirt and a shirt over another shirt I still had to look really hard to see the two. I like this yellow on you!

I thought it was a dress too! I love the lace and yellow together.

Maybe a heavier cardigan wouldn't show the bumps as much?

I was tricked as well! This really, really reminds my of that fab dress that Drew Barrymore wore -

EvaNadine - "bumpy boobs" ha! Perfect description!

miss_e - thanks! It's actually a skrt and shirt combo, but I was trying to make it look like a dress, so it's good to know that it worked.

Kelly - I think the earring was vacuumed up when he was cleaning out the glass in my floorboard from the broken window. Sadly, I think the only thing that was removed was the earring, not the glass. Total bummer too, b/c I've tried to wear those earings about 4 times already since then. Darn.

Sarah - thanks!

Brooke (or is it Coco?) - Good suggestion! It would have to be a pretty thick cardigan, so I wouldn't be able to try it out until next winter, I think.

Miss Amy - Now if only I was as hot as Drew Barrymore, then we would be in business!

Oh, so genius to pair that lace tank with that skirt! Try another outfit with the two elements.
