Saturday’s are my best hair days. They are usually the only day I wash, blow dry, AND style my hair all in the same hour. Since I was feeling particularly good about this usually not so good feature of mine, I thought I’d make the best of it and get a few pictures taken. Oh, wait I just so happened to have been wearing my newest bought dress that day also.
It looks like a pirate dress you say? Well, ha ha, that is because it is! What?! I will explain because pirate-style dresses aren’t usually my thing.
I spent way too much time at Kohl’s a couple weeks ago and as I was making my way to the registers, there was a mannequin that caught my eye. It was wearing this really pretty, flowy looking black, white, and red dress with lace. Several of my favorite combos all in one dress. I had to try it on. Low and behold, said dress had a Pirates of the Caribbean label on it. I literally laughed out loud! Never did I think I’d be wanting to wear a Disney pirate dress. Well, I liked it so much, I bought it. Hi, I am Erika, and I sometimes wear a pirate dress.
I have taken a bit of u-turn with my fit and flare style of me-made dresses lately. It’s not that I don’t like them anymore or that I am not making them (see Summer Girl Sundress here), it’s that I am revisiting the skirt side of my closet these days, and long and flowy is a style I surprisingly still seem to have a bunch of. Once I started regularly making dresses, I forgot about over half of my wardrobe. It’s been nice wearing some of these old outfit styles I used to like, and it was nice buying a new dress that wasn’t fit and flare or short. If I can get back to regularly posting outfit posts, you may get to see a few more similar to this.
Weird smile may or may not be present in future outfit posts to come…
