it's a family affair

Just got back from my family reunion in Louisiana! There's nothing like family, even if I didn't know 1/2 of the 200+ people there :)
Anyway, I wore this dress to the banquet the first night. I almost went out and bought a new dress for the occasion, but I had to say to myslelf "Self, you have a closet full of clothes. Why is it that you like to resort to buying something new, when what you need is already here?"
And that is when I rediscovered this Urban Outfitters dress and I am so glad I did.
The lace detail is exquisite...these pictures really don't do it justice.
Here's a bonus picture of last time I wore this dress last year in June to work. I think it dresses down as well as it dresses up. Click HERE to see more pictures of the dressed down look.

  2. I'm presently surfing along some fashion blogs. Very pretty girl, pretty clothes! Your UO dress looks vintage, which I love (UO rocks!). I like the way it matches with the shoes in the first pic the most. Very cool :-)

    I am wanting to get back into fashioning my wardrobe more effectively with staples that can be dressed up/down well. Nice inspiration - thanks!

  7. That dress looks lovely! I love to wear silk (or things that feel like it anyway). I got a silk skirt from Topshop and it feels so good on!
