{outfit} Zanzibar

I wore this outfit last week to go hang out at home.  I had to pick up some mail and figured I could get a free meal out of it. I didn't miss my family or anything ;) (I see them every week so that's basically true, though I do miss seeing them every day.) I also decided to be a weirdo and take some pictures with a plastic ball, what can I say, I'm strange.

The problem with this dress is that it's so shapeless I can look like a short frump.  So I decided to belt it up top to try to elongate myself. I still prefer the first time I wore this, so I'll probably wear that again before it is no longer appropriate to wear this dress.

Song of the Day: Zanzibar by Billy Joel

Dress: thrifted $6, Sweater: Forever 21 $11, Heels: Guess (Marshalls) $40, Sunglasses: old, Watch: Michael Kors, Bracelets c/o 31 Bits, Piperlime & Vix

  4. You did a great job making it look figure-flattering - not frumpy in the slightest! The layers give it just enough structure!

  14. Haha, families are always good for free meals! I like the dress and don't think you look frump, but belts are always good for adding some shape anyway. The pattern is too cute not to wear it. :)
