I Was a Teenaged Dress Week - Casual Friday - Dress and Jeans

Ah, Dress I will miss your sweet constraints.

I rarely repeat outfits, but I loved this dress and jeans combo the last time I wore it, so I did it again (with different shoes and accessories, of course! ).
I've actually been waiting to wear this awesome necklace that I found at the Bay a few weeks back. Check it out:
Rar! It's like some crazy metal teeth!

Love the black platforms and my stud cuff.

Have a fab weekend!

Dress (Le Chateau, thrifted), jeans (Esprit), shoes (JLo), necklace (the Bay), cuff (old), white gold earrings (gift from L).


  1. Gorgeous shoes! You've inspired me to do my own dress week - I only own 5 dresses and up until 4 months ago I didn't own any! ( if you want to see my sorryful efforts!)

    Love your blog, I pop in everyday - lurve your jewellery collection :-)

  2. Very rocker chic, love it. The necklace is awesome! You look great in this outfit.

  3. hey, missed the "fashion show" every day while I was away! Loved your shoes yesterday...the necklace was dangerous, but a great safety feature when walking alone! LOL You never cease to amaze me! B

  4. I really like your "verve" and the combinations you put together! I recently lost some weight and have been venturing into thrift stores to put together some age-appropriate outfits. You've given me some ideas! Thanks!

  5. The acessories give a totally diferent feeling to the dress.Very well done.

  6. Girl you are ROCKIN' this look! I love it! The accessories are hot!

  7. That is such a cute dress & jeans combination. I love how you even included a casual Friday look to round out your Teenaged Dress Week! How fun.

    Thanks for the ideas & suggestions for adding color to the neutral dress and boots! I'm not sure I'm bold enough to wear bright colored tights, but I'm willing to think about it... :) At any rate, bright glasses and jewelry would definitely be fun.

  8. I know, this is not exactly the place to deal with, but could you please make us once a post on your diet which keeps you so thin and beautiful for ever? For ex. to see exactly what you eat, on a weekday.(if possible, with photos:-). This can help some of us a lot, especially regarding meal sizes, quantities, and time schedule on a healthly diet...thanks so much/Lyn/

  9. That necklace is totally badass. I love it! Good find. And the shoes are to die for. LOVE them

  10. I can see why you wore it again... it's absolutely perfect !!! I'm loving it..

  11. Thanks, Tat, and thank you for commenting! I like your blog!

    Thanks, Chris - you know I love the rocker chick look.

    Thanks, FA. There was a bracelet as well, but I didn't like it as much.

    Bonnie, thanks! Yes, that was quite the rattly necklace, wasn't it?

    Thanks, Wendy!

    Hi, Rebecca, thank you for stopping by and commenting. I checked out your blog - you have a good eye for bargains!

    Thanks, nurmisur, that's what I was hoping!

    Thanks, Hillary!

    Kari, well, of course I had to do a dress every day! It wouldn't be a Dress Week without it. Oh, come on, try some tights - do a dark burgundy or steps! It's so fun.

    Hi, Lyn, thank you so much for commenting. I will definitely do a post on my health and eating, as you've requested - I started taking pictures today. Watch for it this weekend.

    Kaylyn - thanks! Yup, gotta love Winners for kick-butt shoes.

    Lorena, thank you so much!

  12. Oh, that's great!!!! can't wait to see...and thank you so much!!!
    I love your style and blog, and am tottaly addicted to it!:-)I check it daily!!
    I was amazed to find out that you was once on the heavier side of the world!!!??!!! No ideea of this at the beginning! Loved also, your posts about your dear Father and your daily fast walking to-and back from your workplace!(how many km. is that/day?-and how long takes you that?)
    You are very brave and a wonderful person!! Congrats and keep on doing! thank you so much for inspiration!!!/Lyn/

  13. You're welcome, Lady K (Lyne). It's actually very enlightening to see what I'm eating as I photograph it. Yes, I was quite heavy a few years ago. Thanks for your kind words about my dad and my walking (it's about 40 minutes to and from work each way, so about 3km each way, so 6K a day, 4 days a week). Thanks so much for your feedback! :)

    Thanks, BAM! No kidding - and I was *this* close to not buying these! What was I thinking??
