Concrete Catwalk // Laid Back

May 20, 2011
this dress was $1, my friends…
i saw it and loved it immediately, but also knew that it would take just the right styling
to avoid looking dated, and to let the pretty embroidered detailing show.
honestly: most of the time, i feel even MORE drawn to pieces
that i know are going to be a challenge to wear.
a super-quirky piece usually means that i’ll end up looking unique and making people smile.
(and lord knows, i love dressing with a sense of humor!)
do you have a challenge piece that you’re interested in having help with styling?
if you send me a pic of an item in an email this weekend, i’ll style it up for you online
(normally a service i charge for, but free for you, my dears!)
and hopefully it’ll give you a chance to wear something that normally
causes you to scratch that pretty little head of yours!

lastly, and the moment you’re probably waiting for…
it’s time to announce the winner of the lulu’s giveaway!

    I realized I have a piece of clothing I was somewhat ready to give up on and give away, but could maybe just need a fresh pair of eyes to look at it! I’ll e-mail you later :)
