Dress:  Forever 21 Chantilly Lace Dress (hemmed slimmer, sleeves cut short) - S (similar - looks just like Kate M's wedding dress!  size 1 still available too.) (another gorgeous one) (another cute mini)
Necklace: Amrita Singh Teteo via Hautelook - $38 (buy - 60% off)
Shoes: Boutique 9 Keeva in Cognac via Nine West - 5.5 / $87 (buy - only nude left) (i was also considering these)
Earrings: Forever 21 Bow Drop - $2.50 (similar)
Sunglasses: no brand (bought off mall kiosk) - $10
Purse: Melie Bianco Madison - $50 (buy - on sale $65 + 3% rebate!)
Watch: Michael Kors "Small Runway" (MK5430) - $127 (buy - only $189 on Amazon)

I was definitely a little over-dressed yesterday as I wore this to go out and run errands. While most people were out in t-shirt, shorts, and flip-flops, here I was looking like I was ready to go to a soiree.  But, since this dress is too short to wear to work and I don't have any soirees to go to, I decided to wear it out on my Saturday afternoon anyways!

Meanwhile, I didn't get a chance to point out my new sandals previously!  Do you like them?  I'm in love with them.   I've been looking for a pair of tan-colored caged sandals for awhile and when I saw these on sale at Nine West for 60% off, I decided to pull the trigger.  At $87, they're still pretty expensive but, they did pass my 3-hour shopping test yesterday.  Three hours of shopping later and I still had happy feet {although I did stick some foot cushions in beforehand}!!  These shoes, along with my Melie Bianco purse, are definitely my fave purchases of this summer.  Good thing fall doesn't really start here in Texas until November.  I'll get my cost per wear outta these babies in no time.  :)

  24. Very cute lace dress! I love lace of all kind and I'm glad to see you wearing it. I would have belted it perhaps, but that's just me. You look very cute either way!

  25. oh goodness, i tried to belt it but it was indecent at that point! this dress is already barely skimming my butt... :)

    ReplyDelete
  26. Yeah, that would be an issue. lol. I never thought about that. It looks longer than that in the pictures. It's still very cute though! :)

  27. I'm definitely okay with being over dressed most of the time - because really, whos got all these parties to go to and reasons to save things for special occasions?

  28. What a stunning dress!  And that necklace!  Yowza!

  29. I wear some "fancy" stuff out just to do groceries sometimes for much the same reason, I have nowhere else to wear them! And this dress looks amazing on you. Those sandals are awesome too. Wish I had a comfy pair of heels that I could walk around a mall in for 3 hours without pain, ah.

  30. oh, hey dreamgirl! you look incredible! i love how you added the edgier heels and bag and girl... if i owned that dress, i'd wear it for errands, too. ;)
