What I Wore Wednesday & New Additions

Kind of a funny title seeing as everything I post is obviously what I wore. This is *the dress* I wear when I don’t feel like wearing dresses. Do you have an anti-dress? Want to disguise some bloating? No problem, cinch a belt and you’re set. Super bloated? Skip the belt altogether and let the drapes do their magic. Only drawback, the pockets are falsies… just draping, stick change in the *pockets*....and leave a trail as you walk.

It’s what I wore on Monday, when all I really wanted to do was throw on a pair of jeans and a tee. Except with this heat, denim is much too heavy to keep me cool. I would’ve preferred a messier ‘do’ but with the crazy heat and humidity I’ll settle with just having my hair up and away from my neck.

Dress – Romeo & Juliet Couture, Tee – H&M $6.90RW Acc B

Necklace – Adina Reyter via Shopbop, Earrings – Vintage

RW BB&W B

Bracelet – Vintage, Belt – Vintage Gucci, Watch – Michael Kors

RW Shoes B

Loafer Pumps – Gucci, Scars – Courtesy of Summer ’09 Mosquitoes

Remember when Penny Loafers actually had pennies in them? Did you ever own a pair with the coinage? This amused me to no end when I was little girl. The thought of wearing shoes *adorned* with money was just nutty to me. Like having a coin purse...or a piggy bank on your feet…except two pennies wouldn’t get you very far.

Happy mid-week everyone!

  1. Truly... I think I need to hire you to put together my outfits everyday. Your anti-dress looks better than my any kind of dress! And yes.... I sure did have real penny loafers. I remember buying them, and what a big deal it was to slip the penny in them.

  9. I have an anti-dress! It's drapey and open in the front (so requires me to wear another tank dress underneath). I never really use a belt on it so it's ultra-comfy and pretty flattering. I love yours as well... the color is gorgeous and your penny loafers are adorable! :)

  18. I love that dress! Red looks gorgeous on you, especially that shade of red. And I really love those gold shoes. They make the outfit sparkle. :)
    I vaguely remember when Penny Loafers had money in them. I didn't know anyone who actually wore them but I remember hearing about it from friends when I was little. I always thought it was just a myth. Nice to know the money shoes are real. Hehe.

  45. I love the shoes and the red dress together :)
    and I do hate when it's too hot when you want to have your hair down. It always seems to be too hot when I'm having a really good hair day, sometimes I think my hair has a life of its own.
