The Dressing Room & My Second Wardrobe

Who doesn’t love some bargain shopping?

The Dressing Room and The Dressing Room Blue have been my main sources of affordable fashion for a long while now, and in my humble opinion many other “bargain shopping” places haven’t quite cut it for me – either that or I just keep forgetting to visit them. Today I was on Kaelyn Alecto‘s site when I saw her post on My Second Wardrobe, of which I had never heard. All I have to say is THANK YOU Kaelyn, I am in love with the dress I found there, pictured in the above left. And, of course, the left is my favorite look; I’m not sure why, but it feels unexpected and a tad edgy to me. It may be the boots, or maybe I’m simply crazy. Which one is your favorite look?

52 Weeks of Color Challenge: Melon

Hello, Melon.

It’s been a busy week – busy in the sense of vacationing. I was away this week {trying to get the most out of my summer before I go back to school}, and it was lovely. I knew beforehand that I most likely wouldn’t be able to get a color challenge post up this weekend, but better late than never! I’m glad I waited – I may have missed out on some of these wonderful items.

First, the hair. Elikatira is, by far, my favorite place to purchase all things hair. What I love best is that the releases are weekly, too; I love logging in to a new hair each week. This hair is absolute perfection, thank you 50L Friday. <3

Next, my shirt {another 50L Friday item!}. I adore Kyoot‘s clothes, and when I saw that this top was tint-able I knew I would wear it for this week’s post. Plus I had no idea what to wear anyway! ;-P  This chilled out look represents how I feel as I return from my relaxing vacation, but now I’m back and ready to blog for the next two weeks as much as possible.

Simplicity at its best.

Remember when I said I had missed many releases in my absence? Well, at least I didn’t miss The Dressing Room‘s latest collection! This dress is simply too fabulous for words, don’t you agree? I’m totally into the pattern trend this summer, so I knew I had to invest in this gorgeous piece from MichaMi!

Another item I’d like to spotlight, again, is this amazing hair from Exile. I just can’t get over my love for it, I’m sure this hair won’t leave my head for quite a while!

Well, I’m off to spend my day organizing my Inventory! Have a fantastic week! <33
