scallops, sliced

a lazy, cold thursday holed up in my apartment inspired me to remix my pink scalloped aka dress yesterday afternoon. i have this red corduroy button down dress that i bought on sale at anthro a year or so ago but have found it a bit cumbersome to wear - it's a size or two too big for me (i have this retarded problem at anthropologie where i'll buy things too big if they are super on sale, telling myself i'll take them in [which i sometimes do] or find a way to make them work as is [which i may have finally done with this pairing.]) i've had a half-cocked notion of turning this dress into a dressy overcoat of sorts, since it unbuttons all the way; i really love pink and red together, to such a degree that i actually replaced the little buttons that came on this dress (they used to be fake-fancy black and rhinestone dealies) with red heart buttons that i found on etsy.

under dress: aka, from gilt
over dress: anthropologie
shoes: alice and olivia for payless
headband: UO
belt: salvation army

the radiators are on in my apartment and despite the cold, it is a bit too toasty in here. so i'm going to take this warm laptop off my lap and get into the day.

  1. love this! you're very creative, and i agree that red and pink look amazing together

  2. Yes! I love this color combo, and the skirt remix is fabulous.

  3. Red and pink always reminds me of the outside of pearl paint! So pretty!

  4. Haha. I always buy things on sale too even if they need a little snip and tuck and then they sit in my damn to fix pile for a year.
    Love the red/pink combo... the underdress has adorable layers.

  5. As I said on weardrobe, I LOVE this outfit... its simply perfect! I made you my choice of outfit of the week on my blog because I just love this look. I hope thats ok.... take a look at it here:

  6. This looks great! I am such a fan of pink and red together. It reminds me of Strawberry Shortcake!
