Hi all! Hope your day was a great one. Let's get to it....
I'm sure I've mentioned this before but I LOVE VICTORIA'S SECRET. Yes, their panties, bras, etc are fab but I love their clothes even more! They're just so Amber. I like to say they're sexy but not a vulgar "in da club" type of "sexy". Yes, that was a lot of air quotes. (They're air quotes because often times I think people think they look sexy in tighter, shorter things but the thing is...I don't find that sexy. That's what I was implying. I'm stopping now.)
I ordered this dress last summer. It was on back order so I had to wait a few months to get it. In fact, it took so long that I forgot that I had ordered it. True story--the mailman brought me a package and for the life of me, I just couldn't figure out what it was. Yes, that is a perfect example of a person with a shopping problem! I originally planned to return it because I just wasn't too sure about it. And this is the first time I am wearing it. I like it, I really do, but part of me was so dumbstruck with the fact that I forgot I ordered it AND that it was a bit of a splurge.
Unfortunately, the dress is no longer available but I did find some similar dresses which I linked above. As I was searching for similar looks, I was literally drooling (okay, not literally) at all the pretty clothes they have. Why are they so beautiful and so Amber-esque?
I really like the knife pleated skirt on this dress. I do wish it was maybe a smidge longer, I'm a bit nervous to wear it with out tights since it rids up on me when I bend to sit. Oh the hassles of being tall (worth every inch though).
I also want to mention this, I went over 2 months WITH OUT purchasing an article of clothing. I'm impressed with myself to be honest. I think that making these ootd's has really helped me look in my closet and realize, hey...I do have things to wear. But I must say this. Loft had a sale this weekend, and I caved. So I did buy a few more things. But right now I'm looking at a no buy of clothing this summer. I think I can do it. I'll of course let you know!
Accessory close up!
Thanks for stopping by! As always, stay tuned for more!
