Fooled You Not + Giveaway Winners

There once was a girl who lucked out in finding a beautiful dress for only $20 thanks to her wonderful fairy shop mother — Crossroads Trading Company. The design was divine, the fabric was elegant, and the girl left the store excited to wear the dress to her next ball. Then a week flew by  with no ball in sight. Then another week flew by and it felt like she would never be able to wear it. Eventually she said “Oh what the heck. I’m going to wear it to work instead!”

And off she went the next morning.

Top/Dress: H&M – Similar // Pants: Gap // Jacket: StitchFix (check out my review post)  // Purse: Abaco Paris // Flats: Anthropologie – Similar // Necklace: Lauren Conrad via Kohl’s – Similar

**Tip: Fold/scrunch/tuck a dress to wear it as a top! Who needs to wait for a special occasion? 🙂 

This particular dress had a slim fitting thin layer underneath with the patterned chiffon layered over and so it was easy to fold the bottom under. When choosing a dress to wear as a top, make sure that the bottom half of the dress is more snug (sort of like a body con dress) so that if you fold it, it can just sit on top of your hips. It’s just an option.

I had quite a few people come up to me today complimenting me on my “shirt”. Little did they know… 😉

Happy Thursday!

I was unsure about posting this outfit because I realized that I already wore this plaid shirt on my blog a couple of months ago. What is the usual protocol for wearing the same clothing piece on a blog? Is it okay? How long in-between posts? How many times can I re-wear something? I don’t want to be marked as an outfit repeater!

If you know what the acceptable rule of repetition on a fashion blog is…let me know. Otherwise, Kate Sanders will get the best of me. 😛
