Concrete Catwalk // Plan B

June 21, 2011
we went to a rehearsal dinner on friday night
and this was one of those times where i had an enTIREly different outfit planned
but it ended up not looking right when i put it on 20 mins before we had to go.
hate it when that happens!
i ended up reaching for a tried and true favorite that i knew would work
and added some neutral accessories and a simple hairstyle.
(also had to grab some doubled sided tape for that neckline!)
sometimes it’s nice to have a few “plan b’s” standing by in your closet, you know?
dress – francesca’s
necklace & belt – j. crew
rings & bracelet – nana’s
booties – fergie,

    That’s happened to me quite a bit! The idea is better than the execution. Sigh.. c’est la vie.

    That dress is amazing! From a distance it definitely dones’t look crochet.

    Very chic, I love how the booties make your legs look a million miles long. I should wear them just for pictures….haha!

    Love your Plan B – I was wondering how you kept that neckline in check until I read the commentary … :)

    That dress is ah-maazing. I feel a little hypnotized by the close up of the pattern!

    I so have that dress (got it at Standard Style a few years ago), but it doesn’t look nearly that adorable on me! Good work.

    I love your hair in these photos. Where exactly does the double-sided tape go?

    love this rainbow like dress! you look fantastic!

    thank you so much, everyone! i thought it’d be a fun summery option with all the bright colors! :)

    @anon – i have a variety of kinds in my stylists kit, but i believe for this dress, i used good ol’ scotch double sided masking tape (this kind is heavier-duty than i needed, and it kind of hurt to take off, though!)

    @terri – the double sided tape is used to hold “the girls” up and in! the general public can thank me anytime! ;)
