Ever since I saw Mary-Kate Olsen (or was it Ashley?) wearing a white and navy blue polka dot dress in one of their interviews, I've wanted one for myself! So when I saw this dress at Value Village, I kept praying that it would fit. lol! This dress originally came with a longer hem, and huge shoulder pads which I removed to refrain from looking like a football player. I love the gold detailing of the buttons, as well as the pleated skirt. I also like how the longer sleeves counteract the shortness of the skirt.
I found this hat in the closet of my boyfriend's mom. And then I decided to keep it for myself....She told me that I can take whatever I want from her house, except for her diamonds... darn it!
Belt: $2.99 Purchased from Value Village
This white leather belt is very cute and chic. I usually like to offset the belt with darker coloured outfits to really showcase the piece, and then accessorize with other golden knick knacks of the same hue.
Purse: $19.99 Purchased from Richmond Night Market
I bought this red and gold quilted bag from the Night Market last summer. Shopping at the night market, I figured I would try to exercise my haggling skills with the seller and try to get a cheaper deal on the purse. Although I tried to convince him that I was not willing to pay more than $15 for the item, the seller was firm on his original price! Unfortunately my bargaining "savvy" was no match against his, and I ended up paying full price for the bag. I think I should just stick to shopping at secondhand stores from now on....
Shoes: $59.95 Purchased from Zara
I bought these patent-red shoes from Zara several years ago, and they are the MOST comfortable heels I have ever owned! I love the little bow accents on the side of the shoes. Everytime I wear them, I imagine myself clicking my heels 3 times and saying, "There's no place like home...there's no place like home.." I'm not joking... haha
