Pink Truffle

I'm normally not really into pink, black + white combinations (I feel like I've said this before?!) but this poofy little number is kind of a new favorite. I snagged this dress during ModCloth's Cabin Fever Sale a few weeks ago for literally pennies on the dollar. I was so excited to open it up and see the petticoat and lining underneath were briiiight yellow! I should've photographed it! The cardigan is one from Forever 21 a few weeks ago and the bag, too. The bag is seriously the most perfect size for me. I can fit practically everything in it! Plus, black + studs = awesome. The black velvet shoes are Jeffrey Campbell, and they match the blue ones I wore here! I really want to get my hands on the wine colored pair again! But only if I can get them for $30 like I did these.

Nothing too exciting has happened in my world lately. Mike and I built a coffee table on Thursday night. It was rainy and gross outside but we headed to Home Depot anyway. We took an old reclaimed window we snagged at the flea market and decided to get crafty with it. We put the legs on it yesterday and painted it, too. Today we just need to touch up the paint in a few places and she'll be ready to use! You can see what it looked like before the paint here. We're thinking about scouring for a smaller window to make a taller side table, too. If we do that then I'll definitely photograph the process for a DIY. It's so painfully easy! I'm slowly but surely winning the "shabby chic vs. modern" war in our house! Just don't tell him I said that!

What are y'all up to this weekend?!

  1. I didn't even see this dress in the sale or I would've snatched it up!
    You're just such a little doll! I love the pink with the heart cardigan. It just screams Valentine's Day, don't you think?

  7. I love the pink dress (I see a peek of the yellow lining underneath) and the studded purse. I love black + studs as well. I looove the shoes too, only $30! I always figured Jeffrey Campbell shoes were unattainable to me because my budget for shoes is about $40 or less. I love the coffee table made out of window, I'm looking forward to the DIY post. I've seen pictures of doors converted into dining room tables and love that concept as well. I feel redundant saying how much I love everything but it is the truthhhh.

  18. I adore the outfit! I also hesitate with pink and black, but you pulled it off perfectly~* I think it has a lot to do with the pink you chose-- and how cute you look in the dress! Plus I am totally coveting your shoes LOL.

    And hurrah for the shabby chic vs. modern win! Had the same problem at our house until the hubby gave in {or succumbed I guess would be a better turn of phrase, as it has grown on him}. Our dining room table was made from an old door {by my Dad}-- but I never thought of a window. Another project for my list!
