Lookbook: Zig Zag

What I'm Wearing
*ShopSosie Dress - I have it in the khaki and black too but now they have lots of new pretty colors, I love the berry!
*Elizabeth and James Blazer - on sale but limited sizes.  I'm stalking this E&J blazer, I really really want it to go on sale.
*Miu Miu Suede Sandals  - got mine last season, this year comes in a gorgeous blue that I'm thinking about getting too.  They are truly one of the most comfortable pair of sandals I own. (I look like I'm slipping out of them because of the dang tights.  I hate how tights make my feet all slippery in shoes!)
*Zara Clutch (Christmas gift from my sister!)
*t+j Designs Gold Drop Luxe Earrings Rose Gold Statement Ring and Glam Leatherette Ring

It's been one of those weeks where I have no idea where the time went.  Crazy busy.  Started out rough but it's definitely looking up and looking forward to the weekend.  If you're on my facebook, you may have seen a preview of this outfit.  I wore it on new year's eve for dinner out and then the best part, champagne and cupcakes before midnight.  I love this dress - so much that I have two, which is rare as I don't usually buy the same things in different colors - but here's my dilemma, if I don't belt it, it's a tent on me.  If I belt it, it's waaay too short.  Hence, why I don't love this outfit but hey I saw way more scandalous outfits on New Year's Eve.  (why is NYE like Halloween except instead of your sluttiest costume you put on your sluttiest sparkly dress?  haha!)  And then I compensated for the shortness by teasing my hair to make me look taller.  Just kidding!  (sorta) ;)


P.S. If you didn't know, I also write on the smarter.com blog.  Check out my tips and picks for wearing lace!

  7. I totally agree with girls dressing sluttier and sluttier by the holiday! I think it's short on you but on the good side of the coin, you look taller! :D

    Oh, try belting it at a higher waist line that will allow the skirt to drop a bit more, no?

    whm...

    thinking, thinking...

  11. i think you can get away with it being short. it's a really cute dress! and I like that you paired it with a shorter sleeve blazer.

  14. This is beautiful! I have been seeing a lot of shopsosie lately in magazines like People Style Watch. How is the fit of this dress Tiffay? Is it TTS? Love it!

    1. I would say it runs true to size. I'm typically an XS but they only had small in this dress so if I had to guess, it probably is about 1 size too big on me in the body and in the sleeves. However, shoulder wise it fits fine. I think maybe taller girls can get away with it being a bit bigger in the body? But since I am short and have a short torso, anything too baggy in the middle makes me look stumpy :) Hence, the belting and tucking in and other creative ways I've had to wear it. But I still recommend it as it's a good price for the quality and I always seem to have a hard time finding dresses like this that are reasonably priced!

  26. Very cute dress, I'm always a fan of stripe anything! The length is shorter than what I usually see on you, but the shorter length shows off your great gams!
