10th Commandment: July 11

Jul 11, 2012

Today, I just wanted to post some fun, flirty summer dresses.  No, they’re not appropriate for the office (at least not on their own). But sometimes, a swingy sundress is just what you need for a weekend strolling through the neighborhood, sipping an iced tea and window shopping.

    $17?! That asos dress will be mine…

  2. Beth says:

    Having never purchased anything from Asos can anyone comment as to its quality? Forever 21, H&M, better than those/worse?

  3. Belle says:

    Beth: I find it to be slightly better than H&M, more like a Zara.

  4. Ellie says:

    The first model's hair is a perfect example of why I will never, ever highlight. Yuck.

  5. Rebecca says:

    I ordered the Two if by Tea Modcloth dress last week! So in love with it… great recommendation!

  6. B says:

    I am 32 now, and while I LOVE a good sundress with a full skirt and have a closet full of them, I am starting to feel like I am too old to pull this look off. Makes me more than a little sad…

2013 Outfit Restyle: Bring the Tweed

The theme of 2013 was more is more. Wearing a bracelet? Wear five. Add a belt. Add a necklace, maybe two . . . make it three. So when I look at outfits from a decade ago, my first instinct is always: do less.
