Wardrobe Lab Partners?

Had a day of dressing "experiments" with my friend Stacy today! I've come up with two new looks where I've worn a dress as a top, and she's come up with two looks for jeans. I'm still not convinced I wear jeans that well, so I'll leave that up to the more experienced. :-)

Example #1

Dress: Sears (I know, right?)
Skirt: Forever 21
Belt: Urban Outfitters
Shoes: Modcloth

Example #2

Dress: Cactus Flower (but you can get one online at
Belt: Modcloth
Skirt: Forever 21
Shoes: vintage, via Etsy

^^That outfit was a big deal for me! I NEVER wear pink. Something about having a pink, irish face usually... (oh and please excuse the bit of hem poking out at the bottom...I'll fix it next time!)

Exciting Jeans Outfits by Stacy:
Example #1

My best friend goes magically from 5'1" to 5" in those babies! She calls this look "Tough Chic" Grr!

Cardigan: Urban Outfitters
Black tee: Target
Jeans: Gap
Shoes: Journeys

Example #2
And... while it's a LITTLE warm for this now, she's got her fall looks worked out!

Top: Urban Outfitters
Necklace: Kenneth Jay Lane
Jeans: Gap
Shoes: Target

and check out the cool necklace! (excuse our squinting, it's sunny!)

Extra Special Surprise of the Day:
My friend stacy looks great in sundresses and has bought a few this year for herself. BUT NEVER WEARS THEM! I aim to fix this. Doesn't she look adorable? 

Dress: Jean Paul Gautier for Target (yes!!!)
Wedges: Steve Madden

So, though yesterday I said I'd be wearing yoga clothes (and I did for about 20 minutes), Stacy and I showed up to yoga class at the WRONG TIME! ugh. So we had our fashion experiments instead. I may have also bought a new dress today for $9.99 at Urban Outfitters during the time I thought I was going to be at yoga as well...perhaps all fashionable things happen for a reason? 


  1. Wow, beautiful outfits!!!

  2. you have such a beautiful style :)
    i love your photos.

  3. I like the first outfit the most. Yellow polka dots! I just can't believe it is from Sears. Great find! You look quite nice in pink too so I can't imagine why you would avoid it :)

    I miss yoga. I used to do Bikram but it grew too expensive and it was rather inconvenient scheduling my entire day around it.

    Btw, your eyes and hair are a dream. I'll be checking your blog again soon :)
