Check the before:
Uh, definitely better looking this go round, I think. The dress is one of my cheap Ross finds and I still like it for it's moody color palette. I changed it up with some boots and a different bag, but mostly it's the same look.
And it was cold yesterday, so I broke out my red coat:
dress: NY & Co. (similar)
cardigan: Banana Republic (similar)
boots: Camper (similar)
bag: Marc by Marc Jacobs Hillier
coat: Guess (similar also, this.)

Anyway, here you go:
Right? Snore. But, this one cracked me up:
And here I am trying to class up the joint:

Well, really, did I have a choice here? AND, if you have a Gap or Banana Republic card, you got 45% off and OH MY GOD, that is a good deal. I didn't need much of anything, but that never stopped me before. I did buy a fair amount, but mostly just stuff like long sleeved tees and a pair of skinny cords that I may or may not keep. (Maybe you guys get to vote on those? I'll have to take pictures and see what the consensus is.) Anyway, everything was nearly free, it was so cheap, here's some of what I got:
See? Nothing exciting, just stocking up on basics. That wool v-neck sweater was $14! I also got it in an army green because that is a ridiculous price. Things I tried on but didn't buy:
This looked so cute on the hanger but on me was very...cheerleader. Not good. I also tried this on because it looked amazing on Kate:
But did nothing for me at all. We just can't wear the same shapes, for some reason. Like, she tried on my favorite boatneck striped shirt and it looked all wrong on her:
Oh well. Finally, I was all excited about this jacket:
But when I put it on it was all, "Hi, I go to Hogwarts."
Now, I love some Harry Potter and would actually like to go to Hogwarts, but I don't want to LOOK like I want to go to Hogwarts. So, the jacket went back. Boo.
Anyway, that's this weekend's damage and that's probably it for me until after You Know What Holiday.

Meaning that the high pitched squeal you hear right now? That would be my inner 9-year-old girl. See, the second Lulu got these sweet pink moccasin boots I was reminded about how badly I wanted some when I was a wee thing. And now I'm getting some! IS THIS MAGIC I THINK SO.
Sorry, I had coffee today. Lots.
Anyway, I want to hear how you would style these fun boots! I am currently obsessed with jeggings, so I'm thinking slouchy over-knee socks, jeggings, and a cozy sweater. You know, basically my new uniform. You??

Okay, yesterday I had to go to Anthropologie to get a birthday gift. I wasn't even going to LOOK at the clothes. Nope, not me. Not even going to wander into the sale room...and...huh... wait...is...this...OMG.
Y'all. I found the Dreamy Drape dress for a scandalously low price!
And there was only one! And it fit me! Oops.
I know I have something I love when I want to wear it immediately, even if it's not quite a work-appropriate outfit:
But hey, that's what cardigans are for, right?
dress: Anthropologie Dreamy Drape (Plenty by Tracy Reese)
tights: Spanx patterned
