DOTD: Feeling Like a 50s Siren

Today’s outfit came to me last night. I have this striped blazer and I was like oh, I can wear that with my jeans and a tank… but that is given. I wanted to wear it with something that was a little out of the norm. So then I got this idea that I could wear it with a green dress and make it a statement piece. So that is what I did. And I don’t regret this look, not one bit. Well almost..

This dress I bought about two summers ago from Marshall’s and never wore it. I remember trying it on and it fitting perfectly. Then last year I tried it on and it seemed to fit a bit tighter, so I put it away. And then I checked today and its huge. Taking these pictures were hard because I had to keep pulling up the dress to keep it from falling down and showing my bra. So I am a little upset that when I take this dress off tonight, I will be selling this dress. I got it for $20 and will sell it to the $15 because I only wore it once and it’s a nice quality dress. The size on the inside says 2X. I normally wear a 18/20 so I would say that someone who is top heavy and wears a 22/24 should have great luck with this dress.

I’m really sad that now I have to find a replacement green dress because now this one is no longer an option. *Insert Sad Face Here*

Anyway… on to the look… I also had considerable luck with my makeup today. I tried a new technique on the eyeshadow and I love how it turned out. It’s a green smokey eye look. The products are listed below. I also put on mix-matched earrings. I took one black & one white… I thought it was a cool idea…

What do you think about this outfit concept? Did I do it well? What would you change if this were your outfit?
