Lookbook: Urban

When it comes to shopping in actual stores, I’m a loyal shopper where I just go to my usual stores and never really look anywhere else.  When I go shopping downtown, my stops are always Nordstrom, Barneys and J. Crew.  I know that there is so much more shops but I just don’t really care to look.  Online, I’m much more varied and shop at all sorts of online shops.  My newest favorite is shopgoldyn.  I recently ordered a dress from them and not only did they ship it super fast, it came with a handwritten thank you note!  Gotta love that.  Anyway, Urban Outfitters is not one of my usual stops, either store or online wise.  I have a few things from there but the sizing has always been weird on me. 

What I’m Wearing:
Dress: from Urban Outfitters
But, we walked by the store one day so I decided to pop in and see what they had since it’s been forever since I’ve looked.  I think they’ve stepped up their game a bit as I found quite a few things that I liked.  I ended up getting this cute dress and this blazerwhich is now on sale for $29.99 and makes me a bit annoyed because I paid full price.  UGH. Don’t you hate that?


The dress is a bit short but I figure that the long sleeves and coverage up top balance it out.  I love long sleeve dresses, I don’t find them that often so when I do, I always have to get them.  And love the ruffles on the front of this dress too.  Added the nude Louboutins to try to add some length to my short legs.  I really love these shoes!  I kept the makeup soft and pretty with a pink lipstick that matched the pink tone on the dress.

Shop the Lookbook:

They don’t have my dress anymore.  This tank ruffle dress is great, love the print and the pockets.
I’m actually torn between the print and the solid.  Really cute!  I’m thinking about getting it but should I wait until it’s on sale?
Barneys has these back in stock but only a few sizes so snap these up if you’ve been wanting them.  I know how high in demand these are as every time I walk into a shoe store or shoe department I’ve had a sales associate tell me that every woman is on a hunt for these and they can’t keep them in stock!
Christian Louboutin Simple Pump 

A fab look for less at $69!
And for those of you like me that like an extra high platform, these are great for $89.

    oh the dress is really nice. I am little bet like you I like dresses with slieeves but to me they have to be above the knee to balancethe long sleeves as your.
    I completly understand you with the blazer. it is so frustrating when 2 a few days after buying an item we discover it on sale!!!
    I love the jessica simpsion you propose as replacement

    Great dress! I love a good long sleeve dress as well but they're hard to find in Texas. I need to check UO out, it's been quite while for me… If you still have your receipt, they may still give you the price break…doesn't hurt to try!

    Your tastes run so similar to mine – gorg dress!

    And really love the JS shoes, wonder if they run true to size…?

    I have the pins and needles ruffle dress but totally don't wear it as a dress because it'd be way too short on me. I love it though!

    Another fabulous outfit! And the shoes…what can I say about the shoes- I just bought the CL simple 100's in black and now you have made me want the nude ones too! My size is backordered until September!!! 🙁

    I just love your style- you are so adorable!!!

    Love the print on that dress! I think it needs that shorter length to balance out the long sleeves. 🙂
