Winterized




Dress (gifted by eShatki); Shirt (Gap); Tights (Target); Scarf (Loft);
Boots (Nine West); Earrings (Nordstrom)

I've been good lately when it comes to avoiding the post holiday blow out sales in an effort to curb spending (although I also argue it's probably quite irresponsible of me not to take advantage of all the deals out there!).  In an effort to shop my closet, this dress is an example of making a Spring/Summer piece work for Winter.  And it has pockets!  Pockets are sort of like sunglasses - they make you feel cool, mysterious, and kinda bad ass...or maybe that's just me.  You know you lead an exciting life when pockets make you feel edgy :)

Very nice dress! I have an eShakti dress that is very summery, but I'm feeling the challenge to try to pull it into winter!

And yes, pockets in a dress are a win!!

This is such a great dress, I love how you made it work for winter. And seriously! Pockets are the best. I've been known to buy things JUST because it has pockets. No shame.

Niki Caron said...

I love that dress! You made it work perfectly for winter! It's so hard to avoid the sales this time of year - I am still on a spending freeze and hating it! But you are inspiring me that shopping our closets can be done successfully!

I am so glad I started my new internship right after the Holidays because I haven't gone to the small out of boredom which helped me to save money as well haha!!

aren't dresses with pockets the BEST? i think all dresses and skirts should have pockets - it should be a law. you look fabulous!

geelongfashionista said...

Pockets are the best, and TOTALLY agree with your statement. They do make a dress! ha ha.
Love the dress; very versatile and you look wonderful. What is more impressive is that you haven't bought any sales! What an effort.

Pretty dress - I like the color blocking and, of course, pockets!

Diva In Me said...

LOL! It's funny how you described pockets that way. Pockets are there for me to keep my cold hands warm. My hands get cold real fast.
I like your dress. Reminded me of designs by Kate Spade =)
