Weekend Errands Outfit

A friend from Fashionism sent me this chambray dress from H&M as a random act of kindness. And it is just a touch too short so I decided to layer underneath it a scallop hemmed petticoat I bought from ebay a while back. The colorblocking result reminded me of a Rag & Bone dress I almost bought this time last year but passed up. I tied a belt over top and grabbed a vintage metallic bag.

Vintage petticoat from ebay (similar here, here, and here)
ChloƩ metallic flats (similar here and here)
Forever 21 belt (similar here)
Vintage metallic patchwork bag (similar here and here)
I was a little hot in the layers but I wore it errand running to places with air conditioning so it didn't matter too much.

I love this outfit Jess - the petticoat underneath is perfect!!

Brianna said...

I love it! I actually thought the petticoat was a part of the dress at first till I read your post, looks really good!

What a beautiful and creative outfit. Awesome that you got this shirt through another blogger. The metallic accessories add just the right amount of edge the outfit.

(oops, I meant to say "to the the outfit.")

Great idea to layer under a too short dress. I shall copy :)

I, too, am loving the layers. Also, what size are your feet? I've got a pair of blush pointy-toed kitten heels that could be yours for the very reasonable fee of one pair of metallic Chloe ballerina flats. . .

Kim, Brianna, and muzzleloader, thank you!

Rad, the tunic actually came from a poster in one of the fashion forums I frequent called fashionism.org.

Desert Flower, exposed slips and petticoats are the best solution to a too short hemline. :)

A-dubs, thanks for the compliment! I wear 7.5-8 usually. But I love my flats (and am a total heel wuss) so sadly we do not have a deal. lol!

I love this! Also I don't think I've ever seen you with your hair pulled back. It looks really nice.
