Lookbook: Grimace

I’m back and I had such a lovely break! San Francisco was fabulous and I got to meet a couple of awesome readers (now friends!) and take pretty pictures of them and their families. I am so lucky to have this network of such great ladies and to be able to meet them on our trips! Being a blogger has brought so many amazing experiences to me and it really makes me appreciate you all more and more each day. THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart for reading and following along with my little piece of the blogiverse. Enough with the mush, time for another lookbook!

Ever since Herve Leger dresses came back into the celebrity scene everyone has been so into bodycon dresses. Pretty right? I love the look but upon feeling a bit chubby lately I decided to buy the opposite of a bodycon dress…

with this batwing dress that shows no shape whatsoever. But, I love it. You don’t always have to show shape, especially if you are going to show lots of leg.

What I’m Wearing:
Dress: ASOS.com
Shoes: Jimmy Choo
Necklaces & Bangles: J. Crew
Ring: Kenneth Jay Lane

I didn’t want to belt this dress as I liked it loose and belting it would’ve made the entire dress too short for my taste. The only thing that I would do (will do as soon as I have some time) is to take it to my tailor and make it just slightly slimmer in the body. Other than that, I still plan on keeping it loose. I would rather add lots of pretty jewelry than a belt, which I did!

I love the touches of gold that my jewelry added so had to of course add my highest, strappy gold heels.

So the title of the lookbook? Because I do realize that I look a little bit like this guy. But, it’s okay, I always thought Grimace was cute. 🙂

p.s. Thank you, thank you for all the birthday wishes! I had a fabulous day and week (it’s still not over yet, we are continuing the birthday celebrations through the weekend!) and thank you all who wished me a happy birthday!

    you are way cuter then grimce AND i think it looks great as is. i myself could not imagine myself in a herve leger dress so i would totally opt for a looser fitting dress..anyday!

    maybe for fall (i say that like we're still in summer) you could belt it and some leggings… i think that would be cute!!

    so welcome back! I'm glad you had a fabulous time in SF – i was telling a following reader that i need to go back asap…the W has the best cesear salad…can't wait to see more photos.

    Pardon me while I wipe the drool from my keyboard because I am DYING FOR THOSE SHOES! Wow they're so cute!! I totally forgot what the rest of the post was even about, haha just kidding. Your dress is so cute, I'm having one of those days today where a little baggy seems to be just right. I'm also infatuated with Kim Kardashian's Herve Leger dress. TDF! Happy belated birthday, glad to hear you had a fab time in San Fran!

    You are FAR from chubby, oh my goodness! And that dress is truly adorable on you… I like going for the not-super-tight look sometimes. It's perfect for those bloated days (which, let's be honest… are about 90% of the time for me, haha).

  • Jaime

    VERY cute dress- love the color. And the shoes are fab 🙂

    I love those shoes! The dress is nice, but a bit too shapeless for my taste. It works on you though! I'd just look like a huge sack of potatoes.

    And you're not chubby!

    OOohhh…I love this look on you! I always feel much prettier in a loose flowy dress than a form fitting one. The purple works really good with your skin tone too.

    Grimace reminds me of a gumdrop.

    Not that that has anything to do with you…wait, but your shoes are sweet so it is relevant!

    You'll be in Honolulu this month, yay! I'm sure you and J will be met with more adoring readers. Including myself!

    I love the outfit! I have a couple of Herve Leger but i am feeling fat today too (despite that i was super sick the whole day yesterday) soo i should find a dress like yours as well. The shoes and the necklace are the items i love the most from this outfit! Very pretty~

    I used to live in San Fransico (well i went to school in berkeley and i am in SF almost everyday) So i miss it a lot. Did u have fun in union square? It's small for shopping but i just love going up and down the streets there
