July 4, 2011: Patriotic!

Dress: Swapped!
Belt: Thrifted ($3)
Bracelet: Vintage ($5)
Necklace: Spotted Moth ($34)
Shoes: Jeffrey Campbell ($70)
I've been saving this dress for months just for the 4th of July, it's perfect! When I found it at the last Worcester swap, I scooped it up, and fell in love. To add some volume beneath the skirt, I added a light full skirt that was slightly shorter so it wouldn't show. To round out the patriotic color scheme, I added a red bracelet and and red belt with my favorite party-time necklace. Red, white, and blue is one of my favorite color combinations, it's so simple and I think the contrast is so striking.

I wore this yesterday to a barbeque at Punky's, I love summer barbeque's! I'll be posting some instagram photos of my weekend highlights later today. It was great to have a busy and distracting weekend. How was yours?
