Shop Much?

In the midst of all the love cooties flying around in my brain... I have had a serious single-mindedness about shopping lately.

There are a few items on my must-buy list and I feel VERY strongly about acquiring certain items.

Soo..... there are quite a few packages on the way to my house. Let's talk about some of them, shall we?

First and foremost... Forever 21! Long time no see!

I was so excited about this Tie-Dye Stripes Dress.... but I dunno. The stripe placement seems particularly horrible on me.

Although.... it would make the perfect beach cover-up. Hm. Decisions, decisions.

The Polka Dot Chiffon Dress had so much potential... but wow, the fit. So bad.
I belted it to give it some help... but no, just no.

And then there's the Polka Dot Strapless Dress. It's way risque for me... short and strapless?! What am I thinking?
For some reason I felt compelled to belt it because the waist of the dress is just a teensy bit higher than my natural waist. I'm not sure it actually helps the look.

I need your vote on this strapless number. It's quite scandalous to me but.... I dunno. I wanted to pair it with heels but I feel like it was tooooo much leg. But then again, I am 95 years old.

I have the Rosette Trim Jersey Top in black but I wanted it in white for my new work dress code. Love it, so comfy.

Loving this Two Flower Ring for work... I love the pop of color!
These bow earrings were tinier than I expected but still cute cute cute....

I dunno how I jacked up this darn Sparkling Rose Necklace... but it doesn't HAVE to be all twisted up like I'm wearing it.
This layered pebble necklace is quite cute.... but I dunno why the one stone is sitting up so high. Seems wrong.

This layered bead necklace is quite a stunner... looks much more expensive than it's $9.80 price tag.

This jewel cascade necklace is pretty awesome but I'm not sure it's my style.... but I can't return it, so I'll figure something out, right?


And then I had to switch over to 6pm.com, my fav place to buy shoes that I never end up keeping.

Except I'm keeping all the stuff from this order.

This purse looks waay shiny (Fossil Hathaway Glazed Shopper, which seems to be sold out at 6pm online) but it's absolutely the perfect size and I'm obsessing over the pewter color right now. I just looove it.

And then I got a new pair of sandals on a whim. They are comfort old-lady sandals... but in my most current favorite color. Win win? (Naturalizer Andover)

Soo... let's talk again about that strapless polka dot dress. Is it too skank? I'm not exactly 16 anymore....

Is anyone else laughing that I can buy orthopedic sandals and that tiny dress in the same day? Me either.

I think you look great in the polka dot dress, but the dress itself might look a little young. Maybe it's the print? Or the size of the dots? I can't decide!

Elizabeth said...

What great buys! I think the polka dot dress looks fab on you, especially with the belt! I say keep it!

Karen said...

I really liked the tie dye one. Definitely keep it for the beach!

I'm with Girl in the red shoes...the polka dots looks great, but definitely reads young.

Leslie said...

I think it's adorable! Especially with the belt. Very Charlotte from SATC. If you are worried about the length you could try it with a pair of capri length black tights or leggings.

Missy said...

I, too, love the polka dot dress with the belt. It's amazing how one accessory can change the look of an entire outfit!

Love th polka dot dress! So not skank. But I'm the same modest girl you are, so I would put a red 3/4 sleeve cardigan with it. Looks so cute on you!

I love the polka dot dress with the belt, but I get the thing with the heels..I'm tall and I feel so..uncomfortable...wearing heels with a short dress.
