Day 3, Dress -50

This is so embarrassing but I already fucked up. I knew it might happen at some point but I didn't think it'd happen on the third day. Eek. I overslept this morning and didn't get up till 9 and I had to run to get out the door by 9:45 so I'd be at my desk for a 10:30 call and so I didn't check previous years dresses. Thus I'm wearing a repeat. Eek, I am so embarrassed. If you read to the end I think I've come up with a way to make it up to you.

On the plus side, this means I'm going to be double checking dresses for the rest of the month. Luckily my accessories are cute and totally different from the last time around.

So here we go...

Day 3, Dress -50

Dress is once again from my favorite London vintage store Thea. Belt is from Primark (which I also have in purple). Teapot necklace is Betsey Johnson via Bloomingdales. Headband is from my favorite Brooklyn boutique Goldy Mac. Headband

I heart Goldy Mac and it is all of 5 blocks from my house. They have a small but great selection that is well priced and they carry a fair amount of clothing that I can fit into which makes me love them even more. Lately they've been carrying a lot of my must have accessories of the moment which are fun Gossip Girl/Blair Waldorf inspired headbands and general hair accoutrement's.

Candy shoes

My adorable candy shoes are from Office, my most beloved shoe store in the whole wide world. Seriously I can and will go on and on and on about Office. It is impossible for me to visit England for more than 24 hours and not buy at least one pair of shoes from Office. I own many, many, many pairs of Office shoes. But I can't help it, at the age of 25 I discovered my perfect shoe store. The place I can walk into and know that more than 9 times out of 10, an Office size 6 will fit me perfectly and be comfortable and cute all at the same time. I go to London twice a year or so and usually stock up on my shoes for the season there. I know, I'm shopping in the wrong direction, isn't it supposed to be the other way around.

And finally, to make up for my dress mistake from earlier in the day I give you my second "dress" of the day, a vintage nightie that I got via a Friday fats sale. Crappy photo quality is via my mac and sadly I know no details about it other than it's cute and makes me feel better about my mishap from earlier. Plus it proves I'm fatshionable even when I sleep.
