Scooter Striped Dress

Sep 2, 2012

AugustBlog267AugustBlog271AugustBlog272-3AugustBlog307AugustBlog324In the middle of my moving out chaos- which includes garbage bags full of clothes, sad, soon to be nostalgic walks to Molly's Cupcakes, and a lot of crumpling directly in front of the air conditioner- this dress was sent to me in the mail like a UPSed silver lining.

I walked down the stairs to my lobby in my pj shorts, Quidditch t-shirt, and an actual SCRUNCHIE in my hair, when I spotted a brown package wearily.  But when I tore into it, sitting indian style on my bed, and this  colorful, zig-zag, striped, dotted shift dress flowed into my lap I closed my eyes in thanks. It was almost a religious experience.

So thank you Sugarlips for sending me this Scooter Striped Dress and saving me from drowning in an angry sea of cardboard boxes.  When I slipped it on I felt very '60s mod- all I need now if Twiggy's eyeliner and a bright blue scooter.

But, one project at a time.

Dress- c/o Sugarlips
Hat- UO
Vest- Old Navy (recent!)
Boots- Topshop (Recent!)

  7. Oops, sorry I missed your last post, but your hair is AMAZING. The color is so good (okay, maybe I'm a little biased) and the cut is fantastic. Cute outfit too. The vest is a great layering piece.

  25. The dress is so lovely on you! I adore the colours and the cut out bits in the back! I love the fact that you have a quidditch tee shirt, I'm glad that I'm not the only one who sleeps in slightly geeky shirts, mostly I sleep in a Star Trek one.

  27. I love this dress on you! AND I'm SO SO SO SO happy right now (can you tell my excitement?) I LITERALLY just bought that vest like an hour ago from old navy and wasn't sure if I should keep it or not. Seeing this outfit--I definitely am!

  43. What a perfect surprise in the midst of throwing all of your belongings into whatever garbage bag or cardboard box that's lying around. Packing can be daunting. I always end up getting distracted in the process, especially if I received a fun dress in the mail.
