Happy Monday lovelies! Today is especially sweet because I get to go through and reminiscence about our fun, whirlwind weekend! The hubby signed up for a race at Chuckwalla Raceway, and while we were out that way we thought we would spend a night in Palm Springs since we are so lame and haven't been once in the four years we have lived in CA! We went out for drinks and dinner downtown, and I wore my newest little dress that I've just been looking for an excuse to wear.
Banana Republic silk dress [new, $8], Jimmy Choo pumps [secondhand, $60], Rebecca Minkoff studded bag [new, $55]
Outfit total: $123
You read that correctly...I only paid $8 for this beautiful rosey nightgown-esque slip dress! I've actually had my eye on this dress since it came out at the beginning of summer, but the price tag was well over $100. While browsing through BR last week, I found this very last one on the rack and grabbed it immediately! I was skeptical at first, because this is actually a petite size. I was worried it would look disproportional on my very not petite frame (I'm 5'8" yo). But I found it only hit me a few inches shorter than the regular version, which I actually liked even more! So yeah, made a beeline from the dressing room to the cash register and claimed this little number mine!
These Jimmy Choo pumps...my most prized eBay purchase to date.
I wasn't too sure which bag I wanted to pair with this outfit, and originally thought I should go with something delicate and feminine, to flow with the dress. However, I love how this silver studded bag breaks up the lace-y monotony and adds a little edge.
