polka dot rock

There is a list in my life of a few things that I will never get sick of. Pickles, sour candy, lipstick, Mcdonalds cheeseburgers, and polka dots. You can imagine my excitement when Tieka asked me to do a clothing swap with her! I have always had a bit of an adoration for Tieka so wearing one of her beloved dresses is very exciting! I am so smitten with this one. I recognized it as soon as I took it out of the packaging as the one that she wore on her amazing photoshoot with Brett this past Winter! I love how she styled it with the belt and maroon tights! Its so fun seeing different people style the same item, no? I feel like I am so predictable these days. Leather jacket, these booties, vintage necklace..but at the same time, I am so unpredictable. Nathan says I definately keep him 'on his toes' when it comes to my fashion. He never knows what I am going to whip up each day. I guess thats a good thing, right?! :)

Hope you are all having a wonderful week. This week has gone by so fast for me so far. I love it! See you tomorrow..xoxo

  3. I'll never get sick of polka dots either, my friends are always mentioning my tendency to overdo it with the polka! I have such dress envy right now, amazing that you got it via a clothing swap (: I love the blue against black tights, and your bag is so perfect! xx

  22. I know some people are afraid to pair blue and black, but I personally love the combination, so I think it's great that you like it too. And polkadots.

  23. Ahh, every time I see those shoes on you I am in awe. I think you have the best shoe collection, ever. And that dress looks great on you! I think I would die of shock if Tieka asked me to do a clothing swap with her haha. And I'm SO SO SO glad that you got the dress! I was getting a little worried, even though I know it takes forever to ship internationally and stuff. I guess I'm just a worry wart! I am so excited to see what you do with it. Thanks so much for agreeing to take it off my hands (haha), I know it's not quite your style but I can't wait to see how you wear it!

    Also - I was creeping on your Formspring and I came across the question on abstinence before marriage. Can I just say that I loved your answer and I think I love you even more for that?!

  33. I think it's great to be unpredictable. You look absolutely darling in your polka-dot dress. I love the layered necklaces and how you toughened up your look with the jacket. Can I just say how much I love your hair too.
