Jeans and a W.I.P.

Here's another outfit I wore last week. The guys who sit behind me in one of my classes declared a "suit day," and after confessing that even though I'm a 22 year old grown woman and I still don't have a proper basic suit, they changed it to just dress up day. So I thought, hell, why not :P! I just realized my eyes are closed in this photo, oops...

Jeans: Dickies, from Torrid
Black cardigan: Kohl's
Oversize white shirt: Faith21 (I bought this in 2X because my woven stuff ALWAYS shrinks, plus I wanted it to be baggy/long to possibly wear with leggings?)
What I've been referring to as the "temple necklace": Forever21
Liz Claiborne bag: Thrifted

The next outfit is more of a work in progress...Help me decide how to finish it? :D

Dress: Thrifted
Tights: Walmart, I think.
Heels: Thrifted
Fringe bag of my dreams: H&M

SO...this dress. I actually love it, but it DOES border on matronly/drapes you had in 1985. I think this outfit is O.K. by itself, but I'm thinking about adding a fur vest to give it some more youthful vibes. Like this one:

, $24.80. (They have EVERYTHING, don't they?)

Yay, nay? Any other suggestions...???

P.S. I actually wear jeans 95% of the time when I'm at school and such, so it's weird that they don't show up here more often! I think I'm going to do more of an "everyday/super casual" post sometime this week if you're curious, so stay tuned!


  1. I know what you mean- I never think my casual outfits are fashionable enough to blog about! I agree that that dress could use some modernization- I think I would belt it and wear it with some colored tights or over jeans maybe? I'm not really sure. The vest would probably look awesome also! I can see the dress's potential, I just don't know how to acutalize it!

  2. high waisted belt was the first thing i thought for finishing that dress!

  3. Maybe a black blazer over the dress with a long necklace. I also like the idea of the fur vest. But the first thing I thought was to change the color of the tights to a color found in the dress - maybe burgundy?

  4. I liked the rolled-up suit sleeves look... it says "I'm ready to take on the world!" The floral dress is also very pretty -- what a cool contrast in outfits!

  5. yay to the fur vest!!! I wanted it so bad but it didn't fit over my boobs =[

  6. That floral dress is the bee's knees! But I think the black tights are maybe a bit heavy with it. I'd maybe go for the dark green or red if you could find some. Fantastic find anyway!
