LA CATRINA de LA Moda: What I Wore: Girly Girl

May 30, 2011

What I Wore: Girly Girl

dress: American Eagle Outfitters (old)
top: Santa Barbara boutique
belt: H&M
shoes: Jeffrey Campbell
sungasses: House of Harlow 1960
necklace: Forever 21
purse: H&M

I sometimes get the urge to dress "girly", however dressing "girly" is not my usual thing and the the urge to dress that way is rare.  This time around I updated an old flower print dress by adding a belted button down. I always resort to light layers to help me make my old and boring pieces feel new and fresh again.  Confession:  I was only able to wear this outfit for a few hours, after a couple of  hours I glanced at the mirror and realized that I had to change my outfit desperately!

awh, why did you change?! :) this is really cute! i'm the same way about being too girly but i really love how you styled the button up and the pop of red from your purse. and i think the glasses give it a good amount of "edge" i'm going to have to try that with a button up of mine now ;) hehe

I love this outfit! I had lusted over that dress the entire season they had it but once it was on sale, my size was gone :/

I don't think this is too girly at all! I think there's just enough edge.
