more random fashion thoughts...

Today I am wearing the dress over jeans look. I know it never reached complete popularity. I know that maybe only weird people do it, I know that some people think it's awful... but I had two dilemmas today:

1. No clean tights
2. A dress i wanted to wear but can't wear it like i used to. (as in I used to wear it when i was a lot littler and a runner)

So to solve that I am wearing jeans under my dress. Is this acceptable? Does it matter?
I am also wearing a long cardigan over the whole thing to tone it down. I am however, wearing purple shoes with a bow on front of them. I will not tone those down. I like bows.
I'm not usually clothes obsessed, because honestly I can only afford target\old navy\tj maxx, but I do want to look cute. The fun thing is, at this point in my life I am dressing to make myself happy. Lets face it some girls dress for boys, some (most) girls dress for other girls. I used to do both. Until I realized that boys never notice what you are wearing, or they do and don't tell you. And girls notice (everything), but I don't like the competition.
I am leaving for Vegas on Thursday night. And I want to look cute and funky and Za Za Zing! But I'm not there to impress anyone, I'm just there to have an incredibly fun weekend! I come back to my birthday (33!) gasp gasp gasp! Sounds older than I like, but I still feel and look 23! HUZZAH!

I would have to see it. It SOUNDS cute, but I'm not a big fan of the look.

I see people doing it. I wouldn't do it but when I see it, I just think the person is very stylish...just not for me. I live by my leggings, though. They're SO comfy. I'm probably too old to be sporting that look but I don't care. I always make sure my butt is covered and wear only dresses with them.

I have never been even semi fashion conscious. But I bet you rocked it today!

I only live just over two hours away from Vegas. I wish I could run on over and visit you!!

(And yay for 33 year olds!)

I bet it looked cute and funky. Post pics, please! (Plus, via our virtual connection, I think you dress VERY stylishly... or you freely admit you're going for comfort [which is also admirable]).

I think Target/Old Navy/TJ Maxx are offering many more fashion-savvy looks for the $$-conscious. Now, I've just got to slim down so the more "fashionable" outfits look good (or presentable) on me.

Have fun in Vegas!

Well you know I've done it, so it must be cool, right? ;) Have fun in Vegas, and I hope to take you out in honor of your awesome 33rd b-day sometime in the near future!!

I think a dress over jeans looks WAY better than tights!

I hope you have a great time in Vegas. Try not to worry about #33-we improve with age.:)
