I wanted to bring home this dress with eyelet details the moment I laid eyes on it. And course, I did! (Bf forgot to bring the dsrl camera so my little point-and-shoot doesn't capture the details very clearly grrrr.) Oh it also has an exposed zipper and pockets. I heart dresses with pockets.
Clutch: Asos, buy here
Bracelet: Claire's, Ring: Forever 21
I own several BCBG dresses even though its smallest size is slightly big on me. If I *really* like something, I'll find a way to make it work. For instance, this dress has a boat neck and the wide sleeves kept falling off my shoulders every few minutes. I was tired of adjusting them (but was mostly terrified that others might be seeing a little too much of my goods lol); so I searched my brain for a solution. I bought some elastic crochet/lace trim and hand-sewn it on the back to prevent more slips (see picture below). Voila, no more flashing the world! It's not perfect, but I rarely ever wear my hair up so it's not visible anyway.
I've been quite obsessed with oversized clutches lately. To me, it's a trendy item and I wasn't willing to shell out the cash for something that might not last me for years and years to come. I searched high and low for a clutch...not just any clutch...but a bright yellow one to jazz up my outfits. I was ecstatic when I stumbled upon this cheapie item at Asos for $26.90 + 20% off. I was a bit nervous of the neon yellow shown on the website, but in person, it's more of a mustard yellow which is even better. Yayyy!
Oh random tip if you've ever had yellow armpit stains on your pretty white clothes (yuck huh?): mix a little bit of hydrogen peroxide with a bit of baking soda, rub it on the stained area for a few minutes and wash as usual. I promise it works like a charm! So clever, I tell ya. :P
Happy Monday everyone! :)
