028. (Peplum)

The weather's just been absolutely gorgeous. I wanted to wear a dress I haven't worn in a while. So I dug in my closet and found this beauty. I bought this off Dorothy Perkins last year when the peplum dress trend was still in full force. I love anything floral so I got it. It's a comfy dress with a bodycon fit--what more can I ask for?!



Dress Dorothy Perkins | Cardigan Thrifted | Knee-high Socks H&M | Boots Thrifted | Necklace Aldo


By the way, I notice those darn loops on the dress (to hang them) are sticking out. Urgh. That bothers me lots. Oh well.




I was feeling particularly daring and put on some knee-highs I bought from H&M last summer. I decided to take risks. I took the boots I bought last week from the charity shop and decided to wear them. I think this outfit is a bit out of my zone, but it's still me. I like it, despite the fact I look kind of  "shortened" due to the socks.





I went thrifting today, too! I found a pair of brown loafers for $5 (score!) and a top for $1. It was Value Village's 50% off day and I took full advantage of it.

Oh, by the way. I'm having a giveaway for a purse and custom made bracelet. Check it out!

  11. I love your boots!! Also I love how you paired with them with the socks. My combat boots have crumbled to pieces, but when I get another pair, I want to wear them just like that. =)
