It doesn't matter what silhouette or shade a dress is - if it has white polka dots on a brown fabric, it's instantly a Pretty Woman dress in my eyes. Anyone else totally love that movie? Ugh. Julia Roberts can do no wrong! This dress is from Nine West but I found it for only $40 at Ross. I had just picked up another Nine West dress at TJ Maxx when I found this one (and another one!). All three dresses are a completely different look and style, but the silhouette is the same. Can't really complain about getting a $100+ dress for less than half price! The fit of these Nine West dresses = unreal! The length is so perfect. It makes me feel confident and comfortable (and modest!) without feeling matronly or frumpy. I feel like so many dresses lean one way or the other: entirely too juvenile or way too grandma. Plus it has pockets! Instant win! The little bunny brooch (3rd photo) is the perfect "cutesy" touch for a rather simple Spring outfit. I've also been living in these Target flats as of late. I wasn't crazy about the gradient color at first, but now I think they're the perfect match for almost all outfits.
Yesterday Mike and I worked on pulling out over 100 items from my closet to list on Kaelah's Closet. We're doing an e-commerce site this time so non-Instagram users can have a chance to snag something, and so it's more organized. IG sales seem like a good idea up front (and there's a definite sales perk to having them be so "OMG MUST COMMENT NOW!") but they're SO much extra work and then people flake and it's such a mess. It sounds silly to talk about getting 3 new dresses in the first paragraph, then follow it up with "But I'm getting rid of so much!" but I'm so so happy to be getting rid of things I didn't think I wanted to let go of. Consolidating my closet and all of our belongings is such a good feeling. A few weeks ago I started the whole "1 in, 2 out" rule with clothing, so I should be pretty set yeah?! Can I go buy like 50 new dresses maybe?! haha! Kidding! We started uploading them to the new site last night and we'll try to finish them up today. We're hoping to launch the new Kaelah's Closet tomorrow morning so be on the lookout! If you're on the hunt for loads of new dresses (seriously, so many of them were never even worn. Shameful!), stay tuned! I want these babies GONE!
We're also gearing up for one of our best friends to come visit this week! Christina is driving in from Iowa to come stay with us for the weekend and I am so excited!!! It's going to be so rad to have a friend here for my birthday. We both have tattoo appointments on Friday, then we're meeting Elle for drinks after. On Saturday (my birthday!) we're planning on heading to the tattoo convention in downtown Nashville. I have a tattoo appointment while we're there, too. Can't wait to show y'all what I'm getting. We have so much to do before she gets here though. We're hoping to get our cabinet doors finished and rehung before she gets into town. Not to mention finally finding homes for everything that has overrun our kitchen! Gotta love that "just moved in" limbo... even 5 weeks later haha!
