OMG, Like Totally!

 Remember that phrase? (you young uns out there may not)  So 80’s/90’s and that’s exactly what I thought when I saw this sweater dress in the thrift store. I'm 100% sure it's vintage. Can’t you just picture Hilary from the Fresh Prince of Bel Air sporting this or even Blaire from The Facts of Life back in the 80’s? They weren't doing the platform pumps back then though, more like the pointy toe style. Let me just say right off the bat, I haven’t worn this dress in public. Sometimes I just buy a piece because it looks fun, then I sit on it for a while, pondering how I should wear it, when I should wear it and if I should even dare wear it at all. Not too often, but occasionally. Well, this is one of those pieces for me. It's pretty clingy. One thing's for sure. I won’t be wearing these shoes! They’re killing my feet! Hmmm… I'm going sit on this one a little more. But let me know what you think. Do you have any pieces you’re currently “sitting on”? And what about the fashion rule that states if you wore it the first time around, then you should probably skip it the second time around?

  4. Cute! I tend to not agree with a lot of fashion rules. Some of them are stupid. And some of the most stylish women I know tend to ignore trends and just focus on what they like and what looks good on them.

    1. I believe you're right LV. How else would trends get started! BTW, what does LV stand for?
