the one with the What I Wore bad photos...


I bought this cute lil dress today; it was a perfect fit & even had 3/4 sleeves (my favourite!). The pattern to the dress is what drew me to it and as soon as I put it on, I knew it would pair perfectly with my black leggings or my grey cable knit tights. Then I stood in front of the hallway mirror & took silly self-portraits. Of course, the lighting sucks and the background is clutterville, but i think the little critters on the shelf & the halo-lighting-effect makes up for that!

What did I wear, you ask? A grey & black patterned dress from Sears (!!) & a crazy sale steal (40% off of clearance price). Black leggings also from Sears (!!) for $4. 
Yup, I'm a Sears shopper. It's like thrifting for me; you wade through all the crap until you find a gem & that gem is always on sale.

Okay, so this isn't really up to par with "What I Wore" posts in the blogworld, but hey, I tried! I figure 2012 is a brand new year, so why not try something new? I will attempt to do this more often; it really stretches ones comfort level to pose all cutesy-like in front of a camera.
with joy,
Caren
p.s. hey! look at my hair! I just realized how long it's getting. neat. :)

  1. I love this post and your outfit! Looking forward to seeing more of your 'what I wore' posts.

    I'm not terribly brave when it comes to posting posts like this of myself either but I'm aiming to try a little harder this year too. :)
