Casual Friday - Denim Dress

It's been a while since I wore this:
I found this dress about a year and a half ago while on holiday visiting the in-laws. It was around $20 in one of those semi-cheapy stores (Ricki's/Bootlegger) on the clearance rack. I love the cut of it and it goes with tons of stuff, although looking back, I seem to wear it with brown a lot! Can it really be that I haven't worn this since May? Also, in April. Wow, I'm really surprised that it's been that long.

Boots and jewelry:
Mom's 70s choker, and my faux wood/metal necklace wrapped around my wrist 4 times as a bracelet. Love those boots, man!

Dress (Ricki's), cami (not visible, InWear), belt (Aldo), tights (Hue), boots (Miz Mooz), choker (Mom's, vintage), necklace (can't remember), big gold hoop earrings (gift from L).


  1. I love the heel and buckles on the boots! Oddly, I have items of clothes that I absolutely love that I wear maybe once a year. This probably means there are too many clothes in my closet....

    (On a side note, I'm glad you liked The Wrestler! We are indeed Wonder Twins in cinema taste, as well!)

  2. I really like that dress. Very cute. I have a question, with that type of belt, how do you keep it cinched? I have a couple like that and I cannot keep them cinched, they just keep loosening up.

  3. Have just gone through your week's worth of entries. What a triumph! What I enjoy is not only the pictures, but your commentary - I like the attention to detail ( e.g. the baby carrots etc) most of all.
    Also impressed with you taking on Jane's wardrobe challenges as I just read your Wardrobe Intentions in the sidebar. Brava! I have been doing the same thing in my own way, but not with the clear direction that Jane has. I'm sure she's providing some excellent material for a book, which would be fab.
    I can't believe how you've got to rug up to go to work. It's like guerilla warfare with the elements.
    Looking forward to next week's Wardrobe Adventures!

  4. Erica: I'm so glad I'm not the only one!

    I'm trying to see as many Oscar-nominated movies as I can so that I can root for my favourites.

    Alison: the buckle on this belt is small enough that it keeps the belt in place (although now that I think of it, I did have to tighten it up periodically). You could try to add an extra piece of fabric or something like that to make the buckle tighter?

    Thanks, Lady D!

    Sue: Thank you so much for your lovely feedback. I'm so glad you enjoyed it. I always look forward to summertime, when I don't have to wear as many clothes to walk!

  5. Smashing! What a sexy casual Friday YOU had.

  6. Love that silhouette on you. The belt gives a great hourglass shape.

  7. Thanks, Hillary!

    Ha, Sal, that made me laugh.

    Thanks, Cat - I love the hourglass look.
