Mailbox Mavens: Floral Dress

April 6, 2010

Remember JoAnn from Sidewalk Chalk?  She styled my denim vest for Mailbox Mavens.  When she posted the dress below I had to give it a go, the colors are just so amazing and the shape is fun and flirty.

For some reason I fear the “fun and flirty” and seem to hide from patterns.  I love all these things but I shy away, making this dress the perfect challenge!

I got super brave.  I am usually afraid of color in anything more than a bright accessory, but I kept it going with a bright belt and wedges.  Though I did end up covering up quite a bit of the dress I also felt braving mixing textures and pattern AND adding little socks.  I am also afraid of over accessorizing FYI.

This look also helped solve the issue of this lace dress being so short Harper knows where she came from.

Lace Dress: Forever 21

Floral Dress: JoAnn’s of Sidewalk Chalk

Socks: Target

Wedges: Tommy Hilfiger

Belt: J. Crew

    “This look also helped solve the issue of this lace dress being so short Harper knows where she came from.” Your blog (and you) never cease to make me crack up.

    I can’t wait til Harper is old enough to read this. She’ll be all, “WTF, mom?”

    Adorable outfit.

      I know, the sad thing is, when I started this blog, a lot of the reason was to have a diary of my life after her, where I was still rather young. Turns out she’s just going to think I am a nut job!

      Thank you Taylor, the lace dress was one of those middle of the night blog post/fashion visions!

    Hahaha! Oh Jadey… we need to meet soon. I think it would be a smashing good time.

    OUtfit: AWESOME REMIX. You even braved the socks with skirt and sandals thing. I haven’t gone there yet. But I’m sure I will! I love that you put the lace dress over the floral. It completely changes the dress.
