Princess Peach

I snagged this dress from Jen's Shop My Closet sale after I had already ordered one from ModCloth. I ordered a large from MC and it was gigantic when I tried it on. Jen had a medium with the tags still on it (and 1/3 of the price!) so I bought it and returned the first one instead. Well even this one is huge! I'm not sure what's up with this brand's sizing but if you order it, sized down at least one or two sizes if you can!  It's still a super sweet dress and the peach color is divine. I toned it down with my black "funeral tights" and a grey cardi though. It was a really gloomy/rainy day (hence indoor shots) but it was still a fun thing to wear. I picked up these suede loafers from the thrift store one day ($1!) and I've been itching to wear them ever since! The outfit is a little mis-matched but hey, it's what I really wore so whatever! 

Mike and I sat up our Christmas tree last night while listening to the She + Him Christmas record, and today we're hard at work on Honeybean's online shoppe and finishing up some new handmade goodies to stock it with! This girl needs a big ol' pot of coffee and a trip to Hobby Lobby though so I'll leave it at that! Happy Saturday! xo

  2. LOVE the peachy color of the dress and lucky you to get it cheaper :) looks good on you and I don't mind the 'mismatching' at all, I think it works great together! people shouldn't be too concerned with matching everything 100% all the time..

  4. At this exact moment, I'm browsing amazon looking for a good Christmas album. I know about the She and Him one but I couldn't find any other ones similar. Any ideas?

  6. Yes, that's true! I remember buying a size medium and it was huge in me. Next time I buy I will definitely try a small. The dress is lovely though and looks great on you!

  12. love the dress! and so jealous you have your tree set up!
    Hey you should try get a navy tights with some of your lighter dresses if you feel your "funeral tights" are too dark. they are great with every color and not as intense! :)

  13. That dress has been on my wish list for months and months! It's so pretty, I just think it is so feminine and fun <3 Thanks for the tip about the sizing though, it's a pain and a half to send things back from here :) x

  15. Aw! What a pretty dress. <3 I love light dresses with dark tights. Most of my dresses are at least a size too big for me. The longer sizes are sometimes a bit longer than that smaller ones, so I usually size up since I really need any extra length I can get, and I figure I can always add a belt. (I'm slightly belt obsessed. Hehe.)

    Ooh... I love Hobby Lobby. <3 They have some of the prettiest fabric. I recently made a Hobby Lobby run for some supplies for a DIY post on my blog. I'm so excited! It's my first DIY post on my blog (I did a DIY guest post a few weeks ago). Eep! :D

    Also, I can't wait to see the Hive + Honey online shop!! <3 So exciting!

    Oh! One last thing! Are you ever going to bring the Honeybean to Chicago? I want to see it!!

  17. That is beautiful! I so wish that Modcloth had an actual store where I could try on clothes, because I have a feeling I'd buy everything. But, yet, my body is so hard to actually fit...I can't mail order things with much success. Ah, c'est la vie :)
