The Day I Looked Crazy

I redeemed this fun crushed velvet dress on Chictopia recently and couldn't wait to wear it. I wanted to mix it up a little and do some layering underneath it since it's still cool-ish outside. However when I got to class I realized I looked kind of crazy. It's only fair for me to share this outfit with you!



top: thrifted
tights, headband: forever 21
loafers: merona; target
sunglasses: kohls





The customer service was really nice over at Calico. They offered me either the large or small for this dress. It ended up being a bit big on me because they didn't have a medium, but I figured it was better to have it a little too big than too tight, right? 

I have too much little crap to do for school this week. And also two exams on Friday. Hooray... 
I have my check list of things and I'm checking the off. A nap might be in order first though.

Happy Monday!

Congrats on the dress Jamie! It looks really cute and you can hardly tell it's too large. Fashion is all about having fun and mixing things up, even if that means looking crazy sometimes!

This dress is amazing and I love you in blue! I love the top underneath. It looks so unique. I especially love the texture of the velvet and those tights.

I love the title of this post! Better a little big than too tight is right. This shade of blue is great, it looks really good on you.

that dress is pretty awesome. reminds me of something you would see worn in the early 90s like forever ago :) I've always like the way crushed velvet looks plus it feels good too.

Oh my goodness! Your dress is amazing!! For some reason I can't get myself into velvet. It always causes a super duper huge amount of static electricity and I'm always shocking myself and everyone else around me hahaha! You look stunning :).
