Bows to Show



Dress: H&M
Shoes: thrifted
Sunglasses: Urban Outfitters

This is the H&M bow-print dress that I bought last week! It is unbelievably, disgustingly hot today, so it seemed like a good day to wear it. I normally avoid spaghetti straps, but when I tried this dress on, I had to have it because I thought the silhouette and print were so cute.  

I also think this dress has great layering potential. I can see it as a skirt, as a top, with a cardigan or pullover sweater and maybe even layered over a blouse. And for once I’m wearing something that you might still be able to find in stores! There were only two of these dresses left at the Pasadena H&M; however, I would imagine their stock sells out more quickly than average in Pasadena.

You probably can’t tell, but I’m also wearing a new shade of lipstick. It’s Revlon’s Fire & Ice, which I learned from a YouTube video is very similar to Mac’s Lady Danger shade, which I would still like to try as well. I’ll have to take a close-up photo when I’m wearing it sometime because I really like it. It’s a bright red with a hint of orange.

  1. Hot mamma! Adorable dress & it looks great on you. I also really love the sunglasses. we have no H&M in Denver (sigh), but I heard one is coming to the Cherry Creek Mall. It finally cooled off here and is raining, which is uncommon for Colorado.

  5. You look adorable in this dress. But then you always look great whatever you wear :) Lipstick always makes me feel like such a grown-up. I don't know if it's still available but my favourite orangey-red is Charlotte by Stila.

  12. This is so cute! I love the black and white print with the pink shoes... it's the kind of minimalist I really wish I could pull off. And layering potential is always good!

    P.S. Thanks for the favourites mention down there--very flattering. : )
