Weather Girl

Dress: Thakoon for Target (30.00)
Shoes: Charlotte Ronson via Ebay (60.00)
Tights: TjMaxx (4.99)
Necklaces: H&M / Dolly and Boy
Belts: from other dresses
Today has been a no good, blah blah blah, very bad day...or however the saying goes. So, let's focus on the positive. Good things: I received a new dress in the mail from Urban Outfitters! Also received the new UO spring/summer lookbook, which is gorgeous! Grilled cheese with apples and onions for dinner! Cats! Yay! Something else that I'm thankful for: I had the foresight to take outfit photos on Tuesday, before we experienced 48 straight hours of rain, with 48 more to go. All you New York and Philly girls, count your blessings you're getting snow, because this is disgusting.

Anyway enough complaining, on to my outfit. I realized that I haven't worn my Thakoon dress in awhile and I really liked how the grey looked with my purple shoes. I chose to keep the palette neutral, rather than add a lot of color, since the shoes are so eye-catching. I added a couple of long, drapey necklaces to add some texture up top.

I'm keeping things short and sweet tonight, hope you all stay dry! And don't forget to enter my giveaway!

Goodnight!

Currently just outside of Philly we have freezing rain...also disgusting. As much as I hate snow, I'd rather have the snow if this is my other choice!

Last time you posted this dress was when I added you to my Google Reader! LOVE IT. This rendition is great, too. Best of luck focusing on the positive---I know it's challenging sometimes!

I've always loved that dress - the pattern is so interesting!

So cute with those tights! I have the blue/white version of this dress, and it's kinda loud and hard to wear. Wishing I got the dark one instead...

This is such a lovely look! I love it when looks can lack color but still be interesting because of print, fit, etc. That dress is gorgeous on you!

I never really cared for this dress in the store. Until I saw your post, that is. You wear this dress well. Not only well, but stunningly. There's a lack of color here in a good way (except for the heels--love them!). At least in my brain. And I mean a lack of color in a good way, as in your outfit is simply stunning!

Angie D said...

Oh gosh, you look LOVELY!

Purple + Grey = One of my favorite combos!

LIttle Miss Lee said...

How did I miss this dress at Target?!? As soon as I saw it on you, I thought...that is adorable!

Now I am on the hunt...

Oh and I live in the NW. We call rain liquid sunshine here! ha ha!

chicfaced said...

A Stylized Hysteria said...

That dress is sooo pretty on you. I love the color combo. And you hair. You're pretty. Okay, I'm done :)

Lexie said...

Brittany said...

Cats are always something to cheer you up! Did you see my big fat furry kitty on on my last blog post? You need to take a look at it if not.. you can't look at him without smiling!

I love your take on this grey outfit, the print of the dress is really unique!

fruit skeletons said...

Grilled cheese with apples & onions, you say? I am intrigued. I like sliced olives in mine!

Ohh, Thakoon is such a marvelous designer and you look so pretty in the dress! And what a pair of heels! I feel you on the rain--it's going to probably rain in the Midwest for a month straight before spring properly starts and I dread it even more than the snow sometimes!

Those shoes are the absolute most incredible things ever. I love them every time you wear them, and they look stunning with this dress!

stealthnerd said...

Super cute dress!! I love that Target works with designers like that.

And let me just say, that as a Philly girl, I am totally over the snow. I vote that all of us northeastern gals just put an end to winter. If we all boycott, it can't possibly stay cold, can it?!
