I'm Not Afraid of Color or Patterns

I know there's a lot going on in this dress and I didn't help the situation that much with my hair band and earrings, but when I have accessories that work so well with a dress I can't resist, even when I know that I should. When I get dressed I always think of the famous Coco Chanel quote "always remove the last accessory you put on" and I try and take something off, but I'm not always so good at actually doing so. I'm trying dear readers, I promise but I just love accessories.

This dress, like many others is from Ross and while I wasn't so sure about it when I purchased it and really went for it because it had long sleeves, I've come to really appreciate it. You really don't have to do anything other than throw it on and you've got a complete outfit. I of course never do just that, but one could.

The boots I'm wearing are from Evans and the tights are from Target. I've added a headband from Dorothy Perkins and some hand-me-down earrings from the darling Ateqah.

This is a pre-haircut photo and it was taken long enough ago that I can't recall who gets photo credit. Sorry JLR.


  1. I love this dress! So bold and fabulous!


  2. The thing that I found really nice about this busy print is that, unlike some extremely busy prints, this one actually enhances and flatters your curves. It gives the feel of making your curves exciting and intriguing, rather than the impression that you're trying to down play them. I love it!

    By the way, hi! I'm Katie, I found a link to your blog on another blog and I couldn't help myself, the title is so adorable. =)

  3. this dress looks really great -- i like the hairstyle too, and i don't think the accessories are overpowering. love the whole look. next year you are going to teach me how to buy & wear boots. now that i sometimes occasionally wear a dress, i really feel that i am missing out by being confused and terrified of boots.

  4. I LOVE your headband - and I am a fan of accessorizing.

    I am having a giveaway with on my blog - you should enter!

  5. Thanks for the compliments all, glad to hear that y'all didn't think it was as crazy an outfit as I did.
