On a Flower Trip



Dress: Velvet Heart
Skirt: Forever 21
Shoes: Target
Bag: thrifted

Yes, I’m wearing another rose-print dress. And I want more florals in my wardrobe. MORE! MORE! MWAHAHA! Okay, well, I really like them because I enjoy wearing very feminine clothes with my short haircut.

I mentioned right after I bought this dress from Crossroads that it’s too short for me, so my friend Ani suggested that I wear a lacy skirt underneath. I love the result! Although I’m trying to get away from Forever 21 and move more toward thrifting and buying vintage for various reasons, I bought the skirt that I’m wearing as a petticoat on Forever 21’s 100% for Japan day. They did it; they got me to buy from them that day. I just needed an excuse. I’m not sure if this dress was previously owned or not because Crossroads sometimes sells new items from Velvet Heart. It didn’t have a “new” tag and it was $14, so I think it probably is used.

As I write this, I have about 40 minutes to wait until the window starts in which EDD will call me and determine whether I get my unemployment check that was supposed to come last week. I probably filled something out wrong on the form and everything will be fine once I talk to them, but ughhhhh, stress! I can’t wait for this interview and the job interview that I have tomorrow to be over.

  1. Wow, I love the result of the lace skirt underneath the dress as well! Floral and lace, such a perfect combination. This has to be one of my favorite outfits, so pretty and feminine for spring time!

    P.S. Best of luck on the interviews tomorrow!

  2. I could live everyday in a floral dress and be completely content. I love this one! And the slip poking out is just the perfect touch. I'm going to have to incorporate that into an outfit of mine soon! xoxo

  5. I LOVE this. Is that a slip you are using for a petticoat, or was it really meant as a skirt?

    EDD is so strange, I have to go see if my check was actually delivered today. ; _ ;

  6. It actually is a lacy skirt...or some sort of mesh with crochet all over it. The skirt itself is lined with jersey so you can just wear it alone if you want.
