Day 27/30: Double Layering

I'm seriously running out of ideas now, so pardon the likeness of today's outfit to this previous one.

What I said about no more new bags unless one goes? Clutches (and giveaway wins) shouldn't count, right? They're really accessories. Ok, you can tell I'm grasping at excuses, especially since I saw the most gorgeous brown embossed envelope clutch from H&M yesterday. It will be mine soon, I hope :)

A big thanks to Sunshine for this BCBG bow clutch in beige/gold! I love her. It's kind of dressy but I'm determined to find ways to wear it casually.
dress as top: Forever 21 (similar - sleeveless)
belt: Forever 21 (similar)
skirt: Forever 21 (may still be in stores; similar)
clutch: BCBG via Sunshine's giveaway (currently sold here)
shoes: Nine West (currently sold here)

  1. Oh, I LOVE that clutch. And yes, it is totally an accessory and should not count as a handbag :) I'm also loving your necklace combo today. I always love to see people layering necklaces, but never have the cojones to do it myself. Must try harder...

  6. Man that is a gorgeous clutch! I love how you put this dress over a skirt. I make short dresses into tops sometimes too but I usually put it over jeans. I should try it over skirts or shorts next time!

  16. the clutch is so pretty! so happy for you that you're almost done :) good idea for the one comes/ one goes motto for the bags (tho i dont think i have that much will power?)

  17. @Erin @ MomsHaveStyle2 - Hahaha, thank you for validating my excuse to buy more bags ;)

    @Really Petite - Yes the dress is too big and too short :( I'm too cheap to get it slimmed... notice how on the right picture where I untucked too much of the dress from the belt? Not too flattering. I wish I had caught it while taking pics.

    @Anna - You're welcome, Anna! Do let me know how your outfit turns out :)

    @kimmie - Those full shots are supposed to be on the rare occasions I have sunglasses handy ;)

    @The Little Dust Princess, @Olyvia, @hurricanekerrie - Thank you! Sunshine has good taste ;)

    @Elaine A (TOBeautyReviews) - I thought about wearing dresses over jeans, but none looked quite right in my head. Do you wear it over jeggings? Skinnies?

    @Jane - I know, right? For such a bright color, I thought I would have a harder time incorporating into my wardrobe. Now, if it was a few inches longer... then I'd be able to wear it to work too :)

    @Kelly - You bet! Unfortunately (no willpower), I bought some things this past month, so I'm itching to get my hands on them.

    @Kish, @Callandra - Since I had to reuse an almost entirely same outfit, I had to mix up the accessories somehow, right? Thank goodness layering necklaces came to mind :)

    @Bethany - Does this mean I should go out and buy some lottery tickets? Before my luck runs out and all, haha.

    @PetiteLittleGirl - Me too! 30 days doesn't seem like an awful long time in the beginning, but it sure is the last few days.

    @Tara - I can see the finish line now. Thank you for your support!

    @purses and puppies - Hahaha, I SAY that, but I haven't had to exert my willpower on the bags... yet (?)
