034. (Painting)

Dress Evans | Shoes Spring, gifted from bf. | Belt Thrifted | Watch Borrowed from mom.

My dress looks an awful like a splatter painting, doesn't it? That's why I fell in love with it. Jen from Bigsuit Blog was selling this on Livejournal sales posts and I knew I had to nab it not only for the great price but I just loved it! It looks way better in person, too! By the way... it's longer than it looks, I'm just holding it up. I wore a half-slip (kind of like a mini skirt?) to cover my bottom. It goes a bit above my knee... and yes, I'm that short.

Decided to go simple and not overdo it with accessories. I'm not a huge accessories fan anyway. The loud print already would go too much with accessories. I paired it with the usual woven belt and my gladiator sandals.

On another note, despite feeling not 100% my boyfriend's managed to take me to the movies for 3 days in a row now. On Monday we watched Robin Hood, which was... eh, I fell asleep. I watched Shrek yesterday which was better than what I thought and tonight I'm seeing the advance screening of Prince of Persia!

I've also decided to steal this little tag/meme thing from Buttons, Bows and Brogues.
