Fault lines should be worn with pride...

blackstripe6

Well, I'm not going to fool you.  These pictures are a few weeks old.  But hey, I wanted to show off this ridiculously cute dress I got awhile ago.  So look past the old location and the old hair color to check out this new(ish) dress.  I love anything with a great back detail and you can actually wear a bra with it!  My body has been going through some weird changes, but the bigger "girls" has been one of the good ones.  But let me tell you, a bra must be worn at all times now!

My first weekend at home has been pretty nice.  Despite the fact that I've been fighting a minor cold, I've been able to organize my dress closet, catch up on some blogging (finally!), and see a movie.  While there is still a pretty long list of projects to be done, I feel pretty accomplished when I get to cross out a few of them.  I've been learning to pace myself a little bit.  I tend to try and do everything at once and I just don't have control of that anymore!

  4. A dress with a cutout in the back that won't show bra straps!? It's too good to be true haha.

    You look absolutely darling and I love that cool neckline and fun print. Those heels are totally fierce too (:

    Hope your cold gets better soon! I try to do the same when I have tons to do--just take everything one thing at a time, and before you know it, it's all done!

  18. That is a really cute dress! I love the back and how it's still possible to wear a bra with it :) I see a lot of cute dresses with heart cut outs but I just never know what kind of bra to wear with them. And I LOVE your shoes too:)

  23. I adore a back detail in a dress. This one is SO cute and since I just DON'T have the option to go braless, this is perfect. Are you liking the bigger girls? Haha! Be careful of hunching, don't hurt your back! Can we puh-lease have shoe moment though? Hot damn, girl! I swear you have the best shoe collection I've ever seen. I need to go shopping with you sometime!

    1. Thank you! I can actually still wear this dress, it's just the pictures that are a few weeks old :)

  26. This outfit is so cool! I want to wear it right now. I love when a bra can be worn with dresses with cutout backs. This dress has a really neat print too. It'll remix really nicely. Your spiked heels are pretty much the coolest things ever too. They add such a perfect edgy touch to this outfit.

  27. I thought this dress was from the new kate spade saturday line - it looks a lot like their stuff. I really love it, especially on you. I kind of want to steal it :D

    Your new hosue seems awesome. And your closet was crazy awesome, it seemed organized, but I totally get what you mean when it's not organized to be easy. (if this makes sense)

  28. I love this dress and it looks AMAZING on you! I would be tempted to wear it every day :) It looks perfect with your hair!

  29. This dress is amazing! I love anything that allows me to wear a bra with it lol. And those shoes are hawwwt!

  30. I'm jealous that there are women out there who don't have to wear a bra all the time! D cups make that difficult ;) but that's also why I agree with you about how great it is to find a dress that has a cute back AND bra friendly.

    also, your legs look fantastic :)
