Dust Bowl Dance

Boy howdy am I tired! So tired, in fact, that I just started a post with "boy howdy." Oh, goodness. This week has been tiring, what with copious amounts of work and commuting during peak rush hour times. But, hooray, I'm done for the week! Also,on an only semi related note, a few classes ago I noticed that one of my teachers has a pocket watch and one of them wore a bolo tie. I bring this up only because I think it's cool that I have teachers that like quirky, outdated things. Also also, I'm now on the hunt for a pocket watch.

Dress: Modcloth, Sweater: Thrifted, Tights: Macy's, Heels: Madden Girl

So, I purchased this dress during modcloth's crazy 70% off sale last week. I had been eyeing it for months but it was way out of my price range and, honestly, it's not really similar to what I usually wear (though, I seem to dress extremely differently from day to day anyway so maybe this point is invalid..). But, huzzah, it was on sale for super cheap so I decided to buy it (the last one in my size, may I add). It was more form fitting than I expected it to be, and I'm slightly uncomfortable with it showing off all my lady-assets, but I still like the dress. I knew I wanted to layer under it rather than over, and I have a whole nother look planned based on the layering. But today, I decided to go super neutral and dark, also sort of unlike me, but I like how it came out.

I'm sorry that I'm lacking in magical adventures to share with you. Honestly, I'm quite pooped and am about ready to plop down on the couch and watch the top chef season finale that hasn't yet been spoiled for me.

Until tomorrow,
Nicole :)


  1. Yay for 70% off sales! That's awesome! I didn't find any deals that I wanted though so maybe next time. And I'm on a shopping ban this month so it wouldn't have worked anyways :D

    Best of luck with the pocket watch hunt!

  2. tehehe, I feel pooped as well, so it's totally understandable! ;) <3

    Your shoes are so cute, 'specially against the black tights, and I love your top, it's absolutely amazing!

  3. Oooh that dress is cute, I'm loving the unusual print and style! And YOUR SHOES ARE ADORABLE! That's so cool, I've been wanting a pocket watch too! So I can wear it on my vest with a chain and look like a British man from the 1800s. LOL.

  4. i love this dress on you! i saw it during the sale and didnt even think about it bc i usually dont wear those colors..
    but now seeing you wearing it, it has defiantly changed my mind.
    it is beautiful & you look beautiful!!!
    i love the brown and black together!
    get some rest! :)

  5. Really cute dress! And 70% off?! Wow, you were lucky. Plus it looks really good on you.
    My classes haven´t started yet, but I´m pretty sure I will be overwhelmed with work once they do.
    Enjoy your weekend.
