Put a bow on it!


keiko lynn bow dress



Outfit Details:

ASOS Bow Skater Dress
Seychelles "Gypsy" heels (c/o)
ASOS quilted cat bag
Kate Spade "Goreski" glasses bangle 
(Follow this tutorial to learn how to recreate my makeup look)

I first wore this dress in my NYC guide post, and completely forgot to list its information. After answering several individual inquiries, I decided to follow up with a dedicated post, the next time I wore it. After all, I do wear my clothing items more than once (usually way, way more) - sometimes twice in one week. In fact, I tend to wear my clothing as often as possible, in order to make it worth the money I spent. Whether it's $10 or $100, if I can't think of several ways to wear it, or picture myself wanting to wear it all the time, I won't buy it. If only I practiced this same restraint while shopping in Target and Sephora. I swear, I go in for one thing and come out with a bunch of stuff I had absolutely no intention of buying.

  6. I am also wearing my clothes more than once and not trying to pretend that I am Olivia Palermo with unlimited family budget :) Clothes is meant to be worn often! While I do appreciate that some people are wearing new clothes 365 days a year, for me it is a bit too consumerist (and yes, I'm a fashion blogger).

    By the way, this is a great dress and a lovely bracelet. Nicely done!

    1. I am definitely guilty of having an overly stocked closet, because I have such a hard time parting with vintage pieces! They're so special to me. But otherwise, I try to limit my purchases to things I'll wear over and over. By the way, it was nice to meet you, the other day!

  15. This look is so sweet. The soft pink and cup-cake shape make the dress adorable, but I feel like the stark, black bows are decidedly tough. And although I have purchased items in my closet that have only been worn once (and maybe less than that...) there is no thrill like feeling your price-per-wear drop and drop :)
