Hello! We have a Frilling week of Valentine fun this week! Starting with EBEW! Since tomorrow’s EBEW is red and pink (we’ll be linking up tomorrow morning), I thought it was a perfect day to post my Valentine ensemble.
Aurelia’s Valentine party had a dress code: wear red, pink, and/or black. Dress up or dress down, didn’t matter. I wanted to dress up! How often does a Mama get to put on a cheesy cocktail dress and go to a junior high dance? I wanted to make the most of this Frilling opportunity. So for that, I went to Ross and purchased this $8 dress. Which I wore with leopard pumps and my pink blazer (and, I’ll admit, occasionally a hot pink feather boa. But we won’t talk about that here.)
This is not a dress that I would personally buy unless I had a cheesy occasion to wear it. But, for the $8 price tag, I thought it worth the purchase. I hardly ever wear true red, but I think I pulled it off just this once. But I certainly don’t need an occasion to wear my favorite hot pink blazer… or hot pink lips…. or hot pink nails…
Incidentally, this is a pretty budget-friendly outfit. Dress: Ross. Shoes: target. Blazer: Gap. Swarovski bracelets: raided from my mom’s closet. Clutch: Sam Moon. And yep, B is wearing Valentine PJ’s. I planned that. Sortof.
