Day 12, Dress 102: Western Mode

Last Sunday was such a busy day that the thought of writing about it just made me breathless. And then I realized I didn't need to get into the 800 things I did last Sunday, I could just write about my clothes. In one sentence my day consisted of apartment hunting, date at the Brooklyn Flea and brunch, birthday party in Brooklyn, birthday party in Manhattan and the True Blood finale with Ashwini. I had to look cute because I had a date and it was raining. It was a long day people.

My basic dress of the day is a black tank shift from Brooklyn Industries that I also own in pink and wore last year. Brooklyn Industries can work for inbetweenies but they're overpriced for what they are and I only buy their stuff on sale. I put a very old Torrid button-down over it - in fact I think it may be the very first thing I ever bought from Torrid. I've worn this top before.

I paired the outfit with a necklace that I got at the Bust Craftacular, my purple cowboy boots
and at the Flea I got myself a new ring - B for Bloomie!

I really liked the days outfit and think I'll be repeating it once the month is over.

  1. j aime bcp cette tenue,bon w end ;O)

  2. Love this look! You are super cute and pretty. And super photogenic (natch)!

    Definitely repeat this look. I could see it looking great with black leggings when it gets colder. I also think you could use a cami as I see your bra but I am not sure you care. . .

  3. I love that I get almost confused when you put on a dress that's black, apparently that's not someting I expect from you:) It's a very nice dress, though!

  4. You look great! But never mind that ;) how was the date?? :)

  5. J, You're right, I have no compunction about folks seeing my bra -I kinda like the look.

    V, even when it's so accessorized as to be barely black anymore? I feel like i did a good job at kicking it up a notch.

    LMP, the date was ok/good. He's a transplant from the Midwest and very eager and earnest and very different from me. Haven't decided if we'll have a second date just yet.

  6. I love this outfit on you. You can never go wrong with cowboy boots.

  7. This is one of my fave outfits on you ever! I would wear this entire look (with an "A" ring, of course ;)

  8. May I ask where you got the cowboy boots? They are fantastic!

    1. Ester I got them years ago at a store on 8th st in the West Village. It was the culmination of a 10 year hunt for purple cowboy boots. You can however get some similar ones at Shepler's.
