One Dress / Five Ways - FOUR




Ugh, y'all! This is the first time I've worn "real" clothes in SIX WEEKS! Aside from a short stint in a hot dog dress for Lauren's slumber party, I've lived in sweats and yoga pants as we've been working non stop on the new house. And remember when I scratched my cornea a week before Christmas? Yeah, well that turned into a corneal ulcer and I think I'm dying. I haven't worn contacts or mascara in six weeks either. My eye is super sensitive to bright light (hence my weird/squinty faces in this, sorry!), I have to wear sunglasses 90% of the day/night, and I have to sleep with a cold compress on my eye in order to offset the pain. Heaven help me feel better soon. Geebus! I can't drive, I can hardly look at my computer, and I can't watch tv at night haha I'm trying to make light of the situation but I'm realllllly hoping for a healing miracle soon. Phew! Is that enough whining for one blog post? No? haha

So this post... um. Remember back like last year (okay, just last month) when I was doing my LuLu*s dress challenge? Yeahhhhh. So after my eye incident I couldn't do much of anything so I'm finally picking it back up. Just this one and one final post to do! This one was supposed to be my "classy lady" look, but I think my disheveled hair might have thrown it off a bit. It's basically just black on black on black on black haha! But I felt so nice being dressed up for a change. I'd totally wear it out for drinks or a date night. Velvet shoes, a structured blazer and a fun textured dress. I added some bright lipstick just to play it up a smidge. It's the Daphne color from Radiant. Super creamy and such a punch of color. I didn't think I liked it when I first opened the tube, but I love the color once it's applied. (btw, Radiant gives 20% of their profits to help fight human trafficking!)



Speaking of not getting dressed for over a month... Have you ever gone through a phase where maybe you were sick for an extended time or maybe you were pregnant/just had a baby and all you could wear were sweats/yoga pants/pjs? Then how strange life feels once you put on real clothes? Seriously, after six weeks, I almost couldn't care less about wearing actual clothes or doing anything with my hear aside from tossing it up in a very shameful topknot. Of course I felt immensely better once I did get dressed, but let's be frank -- these clothes will come off as soon as we run our necessary errands and I'll be back in those yoga pants, breaking a sweat over our renovations. At least they're coming along! 

I really can't wait for everything to be done in our house so we can be 100% moved in and settled, and then back at our normal daily routine. Maybe I'll even be able to keep up with my email, too! haha Happy Tuesday, folks!

    1. OH GURL! I had to tell Mike not to photograph me too closely (both due to my "URGH" face and because my hair is a total greasebucket right now). SRSLY. I got home and immediately wrote "wash hair" on my to do list. It's also sad that I have to remind myself to do that... *sigh* haha :P <3

  5. I knew you were having trouble with your eye, but I didn't know it was that bad! I hope it gets resolved soon, girl. It sounds miserable :(

    I love this outfit! I could definitely see myself wearing it.

  6. Good luck with your renovations and I hope your eye feels better soon! I went through about a 2 week stint of have an eye infection, no eye makeup, no contacts, sensitive to light, etc. It was awful! But a corneal ulcer? Poor dear. You look absolutely darling and I love black on black outfits because you get the chance to play with textures!

  7. I'm not a huge fan of the shoes on their own, but I think they work with everything together. I do love the dress.

  8. I stripped the entire first layer of my cornea a few months ago! So, I feel your pain. Although, I did not look as hott as you do! :) I hope healing miracles come quick!

  11. Oooh hot mama! Look at you, you look fantastic!

    Sorry to hear about your eye though. Is it something that's just going to take time to heal?

  12. That just happened with my sister's eye. She rested it for almost four weeks and thankfully, it's good now.

    BTW, I'm totally in love with your hair color, FAB.

  13. I feel you 100%. In September, I got double conjunctivis and my eyes burned like fire if I did anything but sit in my dim bedroom with sunglasses on.

  14. Aw! I'm sorry you're still feeling badly! I hope you feel better soon! <3 I'll be praying.

    You look lovely in this outfit, though! Black on black is such a classy combination!

  15. My gosh, your hair is just stunning.

  16. It must be terrible to have eye problems, I remember last yeats when I had for a short time conjunctivitis and I was becoming crazy. I really hope you feel better soon!

  17. Pretty sure I've gone about 3 months without actually getting dressed... taking care of a toddler will do that... I have a real problem with yoga pants... they're just too comfy, it's dangerous.

  18. ahhh corneal ulcers...they are not my friend either. I am probably the worst contact lens wearer EVER. I have the Focus Night and Days but somewhere in my brain that translates to "ohhh you can wear them ALL the time!" Feel better! =D

  19. Oh my gosh you poor thing! I hope it heals up super soon.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Yikes to your ulcer- it sounds really nasty. I hope it heals quickly!

    And on a totally different, totally frivolous note: I'm kinda obsessed with those shoes- I love the texture!
