Grapes and Wine


My Grampa (who is married to my Gramma Nami who so nicely makes skirts for me!) sent me a dress for getting into the Mu Alpha Theta, Spanish, Art, and National Honor Societies (haha not trying to brag). Unfortunately, it did not fit! It was rather loose in the boobula region, a rare and precious region many but myself possess. So we had to take the dress back and in return I got this skirt and shirt! Which together = a dress! Hooray! I tried on so many dresses but either the size 6's were too big or the size 4's too small, so in the end I went with this. Exams start at the end of next week! I'm so excited, I think. Right? Exams are fun, yeah?LAnd deliciously comparable to ice cream? Exactly. Just eat the exams up and wait for the next bowel movement. Exams complete. Oh yes.

Title inspired by this incredibly clever eight second video:



Bissou Bissou top and skirt, Target tights and kitten heels, F21 necklace, Body Central snake ring

I love it! And the flash of purple is really eye-catching too. I understand and empathise with the annoyance of dresses not fitting in the boobula region also.

I definitely prefer separates to dresses. I love being able to mix and match everything. Those pieces will integrate well into your wardrobe I am sure. Great ring too btw.

CUTE. A seemingly simple outfit -- but I love the unexpected elements that make it POP. Like the necklace, spotted tights, and the amazing purple!

I so have those dot tights from Target. The only thing is that they rip really easily, so I bought two pairs. I love adore the detail in this outfit, from the strong shoulder to the exposed zipper. Perfect!
