  1. Hey, I have that same dress too .. it's great for hot weather. Does the pattern not show through the white skirt?

  2. I loooooooooooooovvvvvvvvveeeee your blog. how do you get your clothes for so cheap?

  3. Montreal, the trick to making this work is finding the right skirt. This skirt has lots of room, and is not at all see-through so it's perfect for wearing a dress as a shirt.

    Anonymous, thank you! You can read more about how I score deals in my Q&A (link below). For this $12 cardigan though, there were about 10 of them left at my local store, so I went in specifically knowing that they would probably mark it WAY down, and they did!! Also to keep in mind: these sweaters weren't in the sale section, a lot of times the best stuff isn't!!


  4. J, I know you said you dislike flats, but it'd be great to see how you could use them in outfits. I'm not allowed to wear heels to work.. i know, LAME! they think its like a safety hazard or something lol

  5. Shana, can they be open-toed flats? I don't wear closed-toed for the most part because I have huge feet and look like a capital "L." For this outfit though, I sub in the shoes pictured here:


  6. love this outfit! used this as inspiration for my work outfit today! great idea to use a dress as a shirt, would have NEVER thought of that! love your blog!

  7. YOU LOOK SO PRETTY IN THESE SHADES OF LILAC. Pretty, polished & chic outfit, dear Jackie.
