wear now. think later

Dress: American Apparel. Jeans: Uniqlo. Faux fur vest: H&M. Boots: Sam Edelman. Bag: Thrift. Nail polish: Sally Hansen ‘Pixel Pretty’ Shades: Ray Ban
I was so friggin’ excited to see my fave American Apparel dress now done in velvet, that I didn’t even think and flung it on over jeans. I cannot wait to wear it instead as a dress with different tights and boots and jackets and blazers and leggings… you get the idea.
Actually this older post is how I’ll normally wear it (with tights). Thank you American Apparel for using that shoot for your ‘As Seen on Bloggers’ piece!
In this post I had a light weight scarf with me (not seen) which kept the neck warm and at work I wore my office cardigan that lives under my desk.
ps. I’m still working on my ‘current obessessions’ posted here, but I can cross out the coloured drawstring bag when the one above popped up on ebay. I’m still looking for a great poncho and sky high wedge sandals like the ones on MK though.
pps. Thank you Fashion Canvas for your feature on me here. I drool over your posts daily!

    uniqlo jeans = the best!! I bought a pair while I was in New york and they’re officially my favorite jeans.

    and the AA dress done in velvet looks way classier than their other material. Great photos, keep it up!

    Love that bag so so much! And I can’t wait to see the other ways you style this dress! I’ve been going back and forth on ordering it – I wish I could try it on, but I don’t live near an AA. Does it fit true-to-size?

  32. The Queen of Hearts says:

    The second picture of you = perfection. Everything just came out *so* right. I am, however, not in love with the denim. I think that’s personal because I have this serious aversion to acid wash or light denim — I also don’t love dresses over denim. But you do whatever works for you; I just comment form time to time. : )

  33. Karen says:

    Thanks guys. Ok you lot go and get this bloody dress. I’m serious. Its so gorgeous in real life.

    Emma – I know the feeling but you’ll love this one. So different to all the others ; )

    Kelkiv – thank you!! will check!

    Caylee – yea this dress has you written all over it ; )

    All Women Stalker – ahhh thank you v much…

    Fashion Chalet – yea the boots the boots!! ; ))

    The Queen of Hearts – each to his own for sure when it comes to how we all dress ; )) I actually LOVE acid wash as well ; )

    Brittney – should be up in a few more days. Promise.

    Ashley – yes its TTS to a touch on the small side. Definitely not on the big side.

    Thanks everyone!!!
