Super Sad Super True Sunday OOTD

Good evening, readers! Today my outfit consists of one of my favorite dresses. I can't decide if I love it more because it fits beautifully or because it makes me look like the Hamburglar. P.S. My lack of a belt is clearly a harbinger of end times: Y/N? 

Cardigan: J. Crew Traversa Cardigan - $21.00
Dress: Anthropologie Monochromatic Corset Dress from eBay - $40.00
Tights: George brand from Walmart - $5.00
Shoes: Aldo Botkins - $30.00
Flower: Hollywood Ultra - Gift for attending a Pin Up Hair 101 class

This weekend wasn't the greatest. My husband literally worked all weekend without a break and my brother (who raised me and is my best friend) was hit by a drunk driver and suffered a broken leg. Super sad, super true story! I've been doing a lot around the house in an attempt to keep my mind busy, but the bluey blues crack my strong veneer every once in a while. 

Don't mind the exceptionally low quality of most of my photos. I'm not a photographer. I'm just a girl with a camera (and a blog)! 


  1. You look adorable. Keep your chin up - this time will make you stronger.

    The pic isn't so bad. :)

  2. I just saw your Anthroholic Readers Outift and thought I would say hi. So sorry to hear about your Brother. Is he going to be OK? I know your not feeling to happy right now, but your outfit on Anthroholic was outstanding, and I really wanted the Monchromatic Dress. Love it with those tights. I live in an area with no Anthro. And the reviews put the breaks on for ordering the dress. Cheer up!

  3. it bums me out that you have had such a rough weekend, love. However, I have to mention that your new shoes are spectacular in this outfit. xoxo

  4. Thanks, my sweet!
    They are terrific shoes. :)

  5. @Sherry: Thanks so much for your kind words. They are much appreciated.

    @Laura: Hello to you! :)
    He will be okay. He "only" suffered a broken leg and should make a full recovery. He was discharged from the hospital after only a couple of hours.
    I live in New Hampshire where the nearest Anthro is in Boston, so I have only had the pleasure of shopping in person once! When this dress came out, I wasn't yet shopping at Anthropologie because I thought they were way out of my price range. That was before I learned about sale stalking! ;)

  6. Oh my gosh, so, so sorry to hear about your brother! Can he press any kind of charges against the driver?

  7. JG, the driver was arrested at the scene thankfully. :/

  8. Sorry to hear about your brother. I wish him a speedy recovery. Try keep your spirit up and maybe pamper yourself with a simple pleasure. You had to be the cutest and stylish Hamburglar if you are one :-)

  9. Thanks. :) You are too kind. :)
