Dress – Angie (from consignment) / Boots, leggings – Lane Bryant / Flower pin – made by my friend Brenna
This dress reminds me of something Winona Ryder would have worn in the 90s. All I needed to complete the look – a black choker necklace, hair wraps, and my black Doc Martens. (And do you think I could actually find a decent picture of her wearing anything similar? Apparently I have no real concept of 90s fashion…I TOLD you I was numb during the 90s.) BUT after writing this post, I saw this blog post and it totally shows what I’m talking about!! VINDICATED
This is another find at the consignment shop, Two Big Blondes. Brand name is Angie, which I know absolutely nothing about, except that you can’t even access their website unless you are a current customer. Apparently I totally scored on this dress.
I totally love the pattern and draw string neckline. The tiny little silver parts on the end of the ties jingle all day long, so I couldn’t sneak up at anyone at work if I wanted to. I don’t sneak up on people at work, but it’s nice to have the option.
And these boots!!! They fit! And you are saying “Of course they fit, why would you buy items that don’t fit?” Well, Miss Attitude, if you must know – months ago I ordered a bunch of boots from Lane Bryant. I was too lazy to go shopping physically, and even though I hate online shopping, I figured I could return whatever didn’t fit. All 3 pairs didn’t fit, but it took me another 2 months to get ready to return them. I decided to return these ones, and keep the other ones, because I could use the Boot Bands on those. I tried these on one last time though, and they zipped further than they had before, so I said “F*ck it, I’ll keep them.” And today they zipped all the way up!
It’s exciting! It’s seriously hard to find wide calf boots that fit, are cute, and not totally expensive. It has made me sad on numerous occasions.
Also, in this previous post, I tried to talk about promoting a healthy love of one’s self, while also justifying losing weight. I’m not sure I did a good job of it. WORDS ARE HARD. But the gorgeous gal over at French Toast is Vegan totally nailed it in this post.
