There’s something very appealing about this denim dress.

I have. A pair of levi’s cut off that’s too tight at the thighs, I’m going to get some lace to do this.

I wrote a whole lot of stuff and then the phone hanged and everything was gone.. Blah…so not in the mood to repeat myself.
But anyway, I was just lamenting about the lack of shopping time. I need some retail therapy!!!!! And, telling you not to save certain outfits for special days because I did and since these special days come by once in a blue moon, I out grew some dresses, one of which I have never worn even once. :p They will be archived for the daughter I may or may not have. DON’T save that outfit. Everyday may be special, perhaps you will meet a special someone/ bump into your ex / pop an artery and die. I don’t want to be caught in tatty underwear and a sack in any of these situations.
A simple outfit today for a family gathering.

I got this from Uniqlo. It was on sale for $29.90. Image via Polyvore

I was inspired by this look via Stockholm Street Style

But somehow it didn’t look right. I attribute it to the fact that I’m 5 1′ and the large size denim top looked like it was going to swallow me whole. Why did I get a large? Because the medium pinched my shoulders which are really broad for my height. I’m not complaining, I like my shoulders ( and my ears). So I did some alteration and reduced the bulk from this:
