177.



I have a newfound love of maxi dresses or anything maxi. I never thought I would.
Well, sort of. I don't like maxi dresses with a whole lot of tribal prints or tacky prints. I like minimal or girly things. So I went to Old Navy and found this dress for $10. I actually don't like blue on me but this looks really good for some reason. I also don't like Old Navy too much, I admit they have some decent basics but sizing wise it's inconsistent and the fabric stretches more than a rubber band. So far so good with this dress though.

I guess lesson learned: sometimes you just gotta keep an open mind and try new things. It may surprise you.

Oh, I'm also opening a food blog. I know I keep saying that but I actually will go through with it. I'll be putting pictures and recipes and restaurant reviews and such, stay tuned. I need to tweak the layout a bit for it and such but I'll let you all know when it's live and kicking. I think I'll just keep this blog a style blog/body acceptance blog.

Until next time.

  9. I actually like old navy, Its about the only place I can get a decent tank top for cheep. Although I ado agree sometimes their stuff stretches wonky (I have a grey tank top that I love but seems to have magically grown on me to wear its huge!)

  10. I feel you on the Old Navy thing.  Their sizes are never consistent and the material of much of their clothing leaves much to be desired.  I don't go in there very often but every now and then....

    anyhoo, I love your blog and I'm glad I found it.

  12. Yup. Every now and then is good... most of their stuff ends up being "house clothing" for me though haha.

    Thanks for following and I shall follow you as well.

  13. Cheap stuff is good! I like Old Navy but some of their sizing is wonky, stretches funny or it doesn't last me a while.

  18. You should! Esp. if you do find one at Old Navy or F21... $10 isn't a lot to spend! I see some at F21+ sometimes.
