Outfit Post: Stylish Ropy Accessories
If you`re broke this summer, then you might as well do it in style.
I got this synched cotton jersey dress at Stitches for 5 bucks. It`s cute and comfortable, but very plain. This outfit would be “meh” without its ropy accessories! The necklace is the centerpiece of this ensemble because it makes a big statement, but at the same its texture and tone fit right in. It’s almost as if it’s attached to the neckline of my dress. If one were to buy a simple dress like this that comes pre-embellished (and I don’t mean rhinestones), she’s definitely looking at a designer dress with a designer price tag! Stay creative this summer and you’ll spend less while having more originality. No compromise there!
Here’s what I’m wearing:
- Rope-spring necklace by Aldo Accessories
- Studded ring by BCBG (really doesn’t work with this outfit…but I had to wear it because I never get to wear it!)
- Cuff bracelet by Delilah
- Turquoise crystal ring by Delilah
- Off-white double compartment purse by Derek Alexander
- Multi-colored canvas-cork wedge sandal by Spring
I think I might be overdoing my item descriptions just a little bit. Must be all that online shopping.
Above I’m shopping for a rocking graphic tee for that day where I look like I’m not trying hard, but in reality I tried so hard to make it look that way. Sad? Nope, just fashion!
One word about the photo above – YUCK! If you know me, then you know that this is exactly the type of style I try to stay away from. Y’all already know I’m Asian – do i need a big pink umbrella to tell you? As I was posing to take this picture, a guy selling these umbrellas in the sidewalk sale handed one over to me to pose with. I politely accepted but felt extremely tacky! Lol.
Thanks to Yannick Khong for these sweet shots!
