Hannah Goff Frog Print Dress

Hannah Goff Frog Print Hi-Lo Dress Spring 2013 Collection
Sandals - rue21
I fell in love with this frog print the moment I saw it. I'm not usually one who goes for animal print let alone frogs on a dress! The print is simply mesmerizing. Until you get up close you don't even realize you're looking at mirrored frogs. I was a little sad the camera didn't pick up all the detail in natural light. The sides are darkened to give an illusion of a slimmer shape and the inside is lined with a stiffer material except for the skirt bottom. The skirt bottom is so light and floaty is simply flows when you walk. Hannah has some gorgeous dress prints and designs but this design is my favorite.

Summer Fedora Style Steal and DIY

While running in the Dollar Tree to pick up some tissue paper I saw they had straw fedoras!... At the Dollar Tree! I had been looking for a light fedora for summer since all I have are black felt ones.
After I got home I thought why didn't I buy a couple more and put different colored ribbon, belts, jewels, etc. on them.
I diyed this one up with a few vintage clip on earrings that were missing their pair.

You must check out your local dollar tree and see if they have them in stock. You can buy them on their website but you have to buy a case of 36...

a superheros shoes to fill

shoes - dccomics

I pulled out some oldschool superman tennis shoes the other day. I got these years ago. I had an undeniable crush on Dean Cain as Superman. gosh that seems like ages ago... I never really wore them but I've found myself wearing them quite a lot lately. A good alternative to flip flops. I really love the bright red contrast trim and who doesn't want to play supergirl for the day? :)

paradise valley

blue scarf - street vender
tank dress - thrifted
hat - garden ridge
shoes - cythia vincent
silver cuff - nicki minaj
turquoise cuff - vintage
bead necklace - vintage
My go to look lately it seems. I've been wearing more maxi dresses and skirts than I normally wear. It's just so easy to throw one on instead of trying to put together a whole outfit.
My brother brought me back this blue scarf as a souvenir from a vacation. It's one of my most favorite because of how large it is. You can tie up the corners to wear as a kimono, a beach cover up, and of course a scarf.  I've been looking for some kimonos and I just can't seem to find any I like so the next best thing, create my own! I have a great summer scarf with dolphins and tiedye I want to wear like this as well.

ootd thursday

dress - inked & faded
boots - jessica simpson 'tahira'
necklace - ebay
sunglasses - forever21

I came across some really great finds yesterday, one being this cool tiedye dress. Not until I put it on did I realize it also had pockets. Pockets in a dress make it so much more awesome.
It was so humid here, I didn't really add anything more to it. Just an OOTD post today :) Can't wait to put together some of the other things I picked up yesterday for some future posts.

tiedye gypsy

crushed velvet skirt - neo nostalgia
tiedye top - essentials by milano
belt - vintage
boots - jessica simpson

I found this crushed velvet skirt in a second hand shop and immediately grabbed it up. I love the deep purple color, it almost has an iridescent look when light reflects off it. The sweep of this skirt is amazing and makes it heavier than it looks.
The perfect twirling outfit.
