DOTD: Building from the bottom up

I decided that today... in order to go shopping to all the consignment shops in my area (Midnight Madness with 20% off). I wanted to be comfortable. So this is what I put on. But I wanted to show you how I got to the end result:

Outfit Breakdown & Explanation:

First I begain with a basic bottom layer. I put on my strapless bra and felt that the ladies weren't strapped in enough. So my bottom layer consists of a "too small" tube top & leggings. I bought an XL... cut out the teeny tiny built in bra... and used it to pull the ladies in a tad.

Tube top: MaxRave
Capri Leggings: Newport News

Then I added this convertible dress/skirt over it all

Dress: TJ Maxx

After adding the dress... I decided to add a wide belt (also to please Unique I.D.) and a shrug. I love the outcome. I did it unbuttoned and buttoned but ultimately liked it buttoned. I think its a perfect outfit for shopping. Slapped on some blue warpaint today... it seems stress and depression agrees with my makeup application. Another fairly good makeup day.

Sweater shrug: Torrid
Belt: Torrid
Shoes: Victoria Secret
Earrings: Beauty Supply Store
Sunglasses: Coach
