OOTD - Blush Slip Dress for Nightime


Oh the life of a non-rich Noob fashion blogger, wearing a blush slip dress last seen here and a vegan leather jacket last seen here.  Two recycled pieces - the horror!  Well in my quest for chipping away at my 30 things to do before 30 list and developing a personal style, I have quickly discovered the importance of developing an interchangeable wardrobe.  Having pieces of clothing that are easily remixed to accommodate different looks and seasons not only simplifies my wardrobe, but also keeps my credit card from bursting into flames.  This blush slip dress easily transitions for chilly summer nights with the addition of a lightweight vegan leather jacket, booties and a floppy hat.  Simple - just as I like it.  Read on for additional photos and outfit details.

Felt Hat - Forever 21 ($12 - great deal!), Booties - Target






On a complete side note:  at the same time that I've realized my complete love for hats, I've also come to understand that I have a ridiculously small head.  Seriously this Noob has got herself pea sized head and has had the worst time finding a hat that fits.  Does anyone have any tricks as to make a hat smaller?  Let a small-noggin Noob know!

  1. Unfortunately, I have a giant noggin, so not small hat tricks from me :(. But hats look great on you! I love hats as well as they can really change up an outfit. Looking nice and relaxed after your weekend getaway :)

  2. The color of your slip suits you so well! I admire fashion bloggers who re-use pieces in their wardrobe - it's so much more realistic and creative!

    1. Thanks Lena! I also am happy when I see other bloggers remixing pieces in their wardrobe - that's part of the challenge and the fun right? :)

  3. Hehe, I've got a tiny head too! You can sew small darts into the band on the hat's inside. That's how the 'professionals' do it too. I have my hats made smaller when I buy them at the store, it takes them only a few minutes and I get a hat that doesn't fly away with the lightest breeze :)
    Oh, and I love love love your dress, that's why I initially came here today :)

    1. Great tips! I am definitely needing to make adjustements on the majority of my hat collection. Next time I will ask if they alter the shape in store :)
