I Guess We'll Just Have To Adjust

So much for my pretty outdoor snow shoot. It's rainy and dreary today. But I took lots of indoor photos and I'm going to post far too many of them because, well, because I feel like it.

Dress - Urban Outfitters; Tights - Target; Shoes - thrifted

So, this dress is from my mini-shopping spree at Urban. I can't believe I haven't shown you guys any of the stuff I bought yet! There's more to come. "Jessica, have you spent more at Urban than you've earned working there?" you ask. Ehem, no comment. I've forbidden myself from buying anymore stuff. At least until my next paycheck. But I have my eye on this lovely dress and these jeggings!

I'm the queen of impractical shoes. These shoes have absolutely no traction. I'm lucky not to slip and fall on the carpet. Yet I wore them today out in the rainy/icy/snow because I didn't like any other shoes with this outfit. (I mean, the gold on the shoes...the gold in the buttons. How could I switch shoes?!)

My arms are doing a disappearing act because this dress has pockets...

Also, I love my fabric steamer. I never knew I could love an appliance so much. Perhaps I will love my sewing machine more if I succeed in pillow-case making at my sewing class this evening.

i couldn't see the dress or jeggings (i'm in the uk so it wouldn't go to the us site), but look forward to seeing them if you buy!

I must say that I am very jealous of that lovely dress in this post!! it is incredible and this post is very reminiscent of a 60's mod girl or even the show "That Girl" from the 60's

i am so in love with this look of yours, the buttons on that dress are adorable. i'm so jealous that you work at urban! i used to work at delia's and i definitely spent TONS of the money i earned there. working at a clothing store isn't that great of an idea if you're planning on saving up money :P

Oooh, I adore that dress!

Kell on Earth is on Bravo. The first episode was yesterday. I don't think they have it online though (bummer, eh?) I love shows that put full episodes online.

Soft gray and pretty blue shoes might be my new favorite combination.

Thank you for your comment on my blog! All the best of luck to you in switching schools and following dreams, it's worth it, I promise ;) Ok now about your outfit...I LOVE that dress! It is so gorgeous, fits you perfectly, and has such a great silhouette! I love that you wore the shoes you loved the most, even though the weather was not cooperating, very bad-ass!

This dress looks like absolute perfection on you! You have such the perfect body type for mini dresses!
