|Please ignore the missing baseboards, (as I am trying to do lol) we installed hard wood floors and have yet to find time to put new ones up.|
Last week was my first time linking up at the "What I Wore Wednesday" linky. We were given a challenge by the host Lindsey for this week to wear something from our closet we never do. Well I immediately thought of this dress I ordered from a Victoria Secrets catalog over a year ago and have never worn. The infamous "boobie dress" my husband loves and I hate.
Not only does this dress drive me nuts, because the girls, the tatas, or as I have decided to name mine "All Day" and "Sucker" don't seem to want to stay in this dress, it also seems to cling to all the wrong parts and just feels odd on. I am not a total prude, I am fine with a little cleavage, it's the fact this dress just doesn't' want to stay where I want it too. It's a walking "wardrobe malfunction" waiting to happen. The straps seem to be to lose, regardless of the fact that I have tightened them as much as possible, and the length seems a bit too short for a long summer dress, and I am only 5'7". Well, respecting the challenge, I put my big girl panties on, literally, I put one of my generic slimmers on (FYI I want to try a real Spanx, Santa do you hear me?) then I immediately paired it with a lace cami ($7 at Walmart) to hide some of my goodies, but not as much as I would have liked, now seeing the shots my husband took. Of course my husband wasn't complaining as he took the pics. I am also wearing a cardi from Old Navy bought online on clearance for under $10, silver sandals from Payless also on clearance, a headband, silver owl earrings, filigree ring, and shell pendant necklace that I made, and can be found in my shop HERE.
|Thanks honey for this shot, you cochino (dirty boy).|
I hate this pic, but at least you can see my pretty earrings, necklace, and headband from my shop better.
My ring, available in my shop, and my crazy short locks in two messy knots. Inspired by Lindsey's hair last linky. I wore it once this week with three messy buns too, as Lindsey does. My hair is layered and pretty short, I was pleased that it was still easy to do and stayed up all day.
Ok, so I better not be the only girl that bit the bullet and pulled an item out of her closet she is not to fond of and wore, not to mentioned shared pics, rrrr....
I have bought things from catalogs before and been happy, but this dress will be heading back, way back, so far back you can't see it in my closet. At least I love all of my accessories, I guess I should, since I made them. So what have you not been wearing?
Linking up here and at the other lovely places I party (see right side bar for my library of linky love).
