what i: forever 42



It's been a long time since I've written a "what i" post, but I was inspired. I took myself out to see some of my beautiful burlesque friends perform with Bombshell Betty last week. I left the house the moment David pulled into the driveway from his weekend away fishing and was feeling cute, which was quite an achievement after three days alone with the kiddos!

I found a black dress at Forever 21 recently that I love. It's loose and breezy, super sexy in the back, half flapper and half disco. It's got this off the shoulder little sheer band that I adore, and a strap across the nape of the neck to keep it all in place. I paired it with crazy-high silver t-strap pumps and was in business. It was freezing that night (what's new?) so I hid it all under a giant black wool coat until I got inside. I love an outfit I don't have to think about after I put it on. That happens so rarely for me! This dress is super comfy. It actually feels good to wear it.


Here's the lowdown on my getup. I do wish I had a full length photo of me in the dress, but you can click the link below to see it. The dress is dirt cheap, you should grab one, if it suits you!

Dress:  Asymmetrical Cutout Dress Forever 21
Shoes: Silver t-strap platform pumps Seal of the Sutro
Nails: Black Cherry Chutney O•P•I
Lashes: Accent lashes no. 301 Ardell

It's most definitely not every day I feel like I did in that dress the other night. Moments like that should be savored, especially as we head into the rushing-out-the-door-to-get-to-school-on-time time of year. They are worth noting!
