Wrap Yourself Around Me, I Ain't The Way You Found Me

This plaid shirt dress has been in my wardrobe for more than two years and has been styled more ways than I care to count and yet, I personally am not tired of it. Its latest incarnation was built around my new velvet bow belt. I built the bow from scratch and it was worth the effort. I think I'll make more so I can have one in nearly every color.

  55. Hi R: Awwww, the photo with the dog is so darling, and not just because there's a dog in it, either! Also, seeing your photos makes me really miss my camera.

    But anyway, I also wanted to let you know that I wrote another post about fashion and superficiality; basically, what I learned about the impact of fashion during some community service I did recently. & I thought that you might find it interesting.

    As always, love the blog.

    ReplyDelete
  56. Girl! You got style!

    ReplyDelete
  57. I LOVE the bow! I have a too-long black button-up and a white ribbon I occasionally put together when I'm feeling saucy. I like your bow MUCH better, though. I also like the mustard bag---I have one similar. And my fave of your combos are the yellow skirt, the purple sweater, and the blue leg warmers. Yay. Go you!

    ReplyDelete
  58. Oops, I forgot. I also really like the amber necklace and the last outfit. You're cute. I'm glad I found your bloggie.

    ReplyDelete
  112. Hi Rebecca, I've been following your fabulous blog for months - your ideas are truly inspirational! I adore the teal tights teamed with the blue platform sandals. I have similar tastes to yours and love experimenting with clothes, only I'm much older than you (a young 36!) and sometimes wonder if I'm getting too old to be wearing over the knee socks!! But no, they look fab over tights and I don't think there should be an age limit on what you can/cannot wear. Lots of best wishes from the UK xxx

    ReplyDelete
