"Your dress is red. you look like the devil." - Joey Pellicone




Purplish Crushed Velvet Mini Dress- F21, Black Faux Fur Coat- Vintage, Black Knit Beanie- F21, Dream Catcher Earrings- Aldo, Silver Armor Ring- Free People, Black Solvang Clogs- Jeffrey Campbell

My husband may be incredibly handsome, witty and smart, but his childlike clothing-related quotes could fill a book. Examples: my taupe suede Litas are "Those boots with the antlers for heels", anything shiny and black is met with "You look like a robot", and when my bangs were growing out and I had to slick them back, I was "Aerodynamic". So when he informed me that this obviously purple crushed-velvet dress is pleasing to him "Because it's red and you look like the devil" I thought it was pretty cute/entertaining. I highly recommend asking your significant other to pontificate on your outfit. Unless he "gets" fashion (lucky you), then go see what your dad has to say. You will not be disappointed, I promise.
Anyway, I believe this is one of the most inexpensive outfit posts I have ever done. Minus the shoes, I think it totals out at way under $100. Just FYI. Margaret the frugalista (a term that should never be used, under any circumstances, lest one sound like a Burlington Coat Factory ad or that really annoying girl you know who is completely well-intentioned and friendly, but just so corny all the time). 
Have a beautiful Thursday- I am so excited; only three more days until Joey and I head to Nashville (his hometown) for Thanksgiving. I am planning some major Karen Elson stalking- not only does she live near Joey's family, she owns the most amazing vintage store called Venus and Mars. If you haven't checked out her album "The Ghost Who Walks", seriously do it. The girl is a poet.
