17 September 2014
I know everyone's pretty much got fallen leaves, suede booties and pumpkin spice errthang on the brain right now, so I'm sure my outfit is reading as more April than September, but oh well. I got this dress recently and felt the obligation to wear it despite the season (and it's still like 80 degrees where I am).
This dress was a surprise find at Forever 21, which other than for it's awesomely cheap trendy jewelry I actually have been staying away from for a while now. Let's call it me finally maturing a bit as I'm realizing that though I can physically fit into a piece of clothing does not mean it's meant for me. Forever 21's target demographic is most likely not the office gal. But sometimes they have a few winners that are too wallet-friendly to resist (like this J.Crew-esque tee worn here, or this awesome dress I've had for a few seasons now) and appropriate for someone too old for short-shorts.
