Sometimes it's the Little Things That Make the Big Difference

Like changing the part in your hair. Seriously. All I did was give myself a middle part and tie my hair back a bit and folks just could not stop commenting to me about it all day long. I even got stopped on my way to the subway by someone who wanted to give me his number. Which I kindly declined, but kudos to him for trying. Wish as I may, I could never be that forward. I really do wish, but I just can't do it.

I happen to like the whole outfit and I'm enjoying this incarnation of the dress way more than the last time I wore it. The dress is from Anthropologie, a store that I love and is shockingly good for inbetweenies, but it is also ridiculously expensive. So I'm going to take this as an opportunity to brag that I got it for $10, down from $78. Are you impressed? I am. Also, this dress (which is basically an elongated sweatshirt) is not worth anything close to $78.

The leggings are from Target via a Friday Fats post and they're kind of stretched out but as usual I don't have the heart to throw them (or any of my other clothing for that matter) out. The boots I got at the Camden Market in London and the belt and necklace are both from Primark. I always thought the belt was a butterfly but now I think it may not be. What say you?

  1. the belt is dope! :D and I see some kinda gramophone in it haha is this too absurd?

  2. You look so lovely in this outfit! Nice dress, pretty and funky belt, AND it's purple!!

    And I thought the belt was a butterfly as well, but now I'm not sure...but I like the purple with the turquoise/blue :)

  3. Purple is a great colour for you - you look great!


  4. A gramophone? I never considered that one. Hmmm...I think it's making me a little crazy to look at it and come up with ideas of what it might be so I'm gonna have to stop and just enjoy it for the pretty belt that it is.

  5. Your purple boots are so cool! I loved Portobello Market when I went to London but I never had the chance to go to Camden. I'll have to check it out next time I'm there!
