Everybody Everywear: Floral Challenge - IN THE GARDEN

There are some fantastic fashion bloggers in the blogsphere. Some are such favorites of mine that I get immediate updates of their posts using my Pulse app for Android. Prissy is the creator of RushOurFashion. We recently begin interacting on Twitter and this week she suggested I participate in the Everybody EveryWear challenge. I checked out the site and was sold. I’m kinda sad I missed the maxi dress challenge. Guess this can fall into both categories.

This is my first and I’m nervous but excited to get comments about this look I put together for work. It’s difficult to make a halter maxi dress appropriate for work but when you have zero in the breast area like me it can be done. I have a love hate relationship with this dress. I purchased it last year from JcPenney for a trip to see someone “special”. I’ve worn it about 4 times. I should rock it more but I have a hard time keeping the darn thing up (back to boob problem).
As you’ve read and seen from the past few posting I’m a floral addict. So when this invite came up I immediately grabbed this from the back of my closet and started rummaging around to see how I could make it work. I initially thought of the old trust GAP jean jacket but wanted to keep the look soft so as not to diminish the print of the dress. This cardie is an old purchase from the Bull’s Eye Boutique –aka- Target. The belt came on some dress from Forever 21. This is the first time I’ve worn it. The necklace was a recent purchase this weekend from Marshall’s. It’s another Jessica Simpson piece. I have a thing for her right now. The ring and earrings are old. Dolce Vita wedges were a birthday gift purchased from Target. I’ve seen them on at least 10 blogs. I love them for the height and the price for a designer sandal wasn’t bad.

Satchel is Michael Kors purchased as a Christmas gift to self. I know I use all the holidays to buy myself a new item or two. I kept the makeup soft so as not to end up looking like a box of crayolas. Nails are colored with Sally Hansen’s Mint Sorbet.  Yummy, right? The table or stand I’m sitting on was at the dump when I pulled into my parking space today. Viola, a prop for photos.

So what do you think? How’d I do?

Yay!!!! I love it!! love it! love it! the dress is gorgeous, girl. You know I am a fan of the maxi. I just bought another one from JCP this past weekend. Lol.

I really love your necklace. I never find good accessories like that at Marshall's. I am going t have to find a necklace like that... or maybe I will try to make one. You know I am on a DIY kick these days.

GREAT JOB! I am so sad I missed out on EBEW this month. *sigh* I am all challenged out. Lol.

*Gorgeous* outfit! I love the belted cardi over maxi dress. You've inspired me to try that soon. You also have a great eye for color: what looks good on you and what looks good together. I love how you accessorize - I'm not an accessories woman but I'm working on it because I see how they can really pull an outfit together.
Loving your blog so far!

I don't knowbif I'm more excited that you like thw look or you ALL stopped by to comments.since I'm not a dedicated fashion blog. To have some of the best bloggers approval is earth shattering, SERIOUSLY. Thanks for inspiring me. My students love seeing what I'll try next.

I recently became a single mom about 6 months ago. Tough job! I love fashion like you, and I just want to say you give me hope... I can still be Diva on a budget! You have to tell me how you find those great steals at Goodwill.I'm in Southern CA and I don't see anything at my local Goodwill.
