Look of the Day: Floral Mini

vintage, floral, strapless dress, blonde, fleur d'elise

I can't believe I'm selling this dress. It's so cute and was so easy to style, that I'm sort of having second thoughts about listing it on Etsy. I braved the wind and cold to take these photos for the listing and am impressed with how cute the dress looks with a little added texture and contrasting accessories. If you're interested, you better buy it quick before I change my mind!

Another great find that I'm not sure I want to sell? This little Coach-ish purse I found at the Goodwill last night. It's from the Mervyns line of Coach-style bags and it's honestly quite close to being the same quality as the real thing. The hardware is a little squeaky, which is the only way to tell. The leather is gorgeously soft and in tip-top shape. I am trying to think of reasons to keep it other than "It's so cute!"

Last week, I realized that I wear blue about 75% of the time. I love the color and it's super flattering, but it's time to start dressing outside my comfort zone! My goal for my next 3 looks, at least, is to wear other colors. I own them, so it shouldn't be hard!

Catie! YOU have such a great knack for putting outfits together. I love this look- perfect for a flirty fall- great print and how you've added the sweater and the warm tan purse makes it feel right for the season. Plus you look ADORBS in those specs!

I wish that dress would fit my bust, because I would snatch it up! I love the print! And it looks so fall appropriate with the cardigan. :) <3

I am going to preface this by saying, "Not to be an enabler" because that is precisely what I am going to be... this dress fits you like a glove. I honestly don't think you're going to find anyone it looks more fabulous on than you. So I vote keep it! Plus you styled it so perfectly. I really envy your ability to wear glasses and look stylish; I wear mine everyday but never in photos, I feel like they give me a sort of quirky librarian quality... I digress. This was really just meant to say that you look ah-maz-ing.
xox,
