13/15 | Wearing My Memories


I'm slowly getting better after popping tons of tylenol and mucinex. Now I just have to get rid of this sore throat and cough. I'm not one for being sick and I usually don't let it ruin my plans (which is why it takes me forever to get better). I worked 4 days in a row, went out a few times, and now I'm heading into the city tomorrow. My dad keeps telling me to just stay home one day and sleep it off. I'll be back to my normal self in no time and I'll be sure to catch up with all of you. I feel horrible that I haven't been responding to comments. I'm still catching up with your blogs though, so don't worry! It's going to be a hectic week since I have a lot of errands to run (I'm moving into my on-campus apartment on Sunday)! Hopefully once I'm settled in I can take some time and RELAX. :)


(shirt dress h&m [remixed], purse & shoes urban outfitters, ring forever 21, bow prom dress fabric [remixed])

So in regards to my post title, the fabric I used to tie the bow around my neck is from my prom dress back from my senior year of high school (I went with my best guy friend). Since I'm pretty short I had to get the dress hemmed. The tailor who cut a couple of inches off gave me the remaining mesh fabric so I kept it around. It comes in handy every now and then and I love the color. It's actually my favorite color to wear.

  1. awww. I'm sorry you're sick! I'm like you. I don't let being sick ruin my plans and therefore, make the worst ill person ever. Like, I got my wisdom teeth out just last week, and the very day of it, I was outside running around. It's taking forever to recover.

    I love this dress! And you should include a picture of you from senior prom:) It would be fun to see! That color looks gorgeous!

  12. This is such a cute outfit! I love what you did with the bow.

  13. What a great way to repurpose a piece that brings back good memories! I love it as a bow on the dress.

    So sorry you're not feeling well! I know how hard it is to slow down when you're sick, you'd rather just pretend you feel fine. Hope you're able to get the rest you need so that you can quickly be back at 100%!

  14. Sorry to hear you're not feeling well! That's always the worst - especially at the end of summer. But this bag is simply amazing! I think it's the stitching.

    By the way, I just posted a sneak peak at my shop update for the fall 2010 collection on my blog! You can visit if you want to see it : ) http://streetsandstripes.blogspot.com

  17. I really love how made the left over fabric into a bow, definitely brings that dress to a whole new level! Oh and I have that purse in the tan color :) I would like it 100x more if it could fit my wallet..or my phone..or just something in general, haha!

  21. The quiet detail makes this outfit so charming. It's interesting, but not overwhelming. It also helps that you are beautiful. :] You are totally creative for using bits of your prom dress for a bow. My prom dress was actually a similar colour!! Oh boy, talking about this brings on a wave of nostalgia..

    I hope you feel a megaton better soon!! <3

  32. I love how you styled the shirt dress, the bow is a really nice touch. This outfit plus the bag = perfection.

    ReplyDelete
  33. Being sick is so lame :( I hate it when you can't exactly stop life to feel better too... boo. Ok, but on a lighter note, I think this has to be my favorite of the remix so far. The dress is adorable, I want to steal it and I love how you threw in your prom dress mesh! It's definitely a cool color :)

    ReplyDelete
  34. I'm just that way--I get sick, but I don't stop anything. I usually get sick right before a big, huge, and important event anyway--so I have no choice but to keep going! Still, I hope you get better soon! I love this H&M dress. I have one like it from Macy's that I posted eons ago!

  39. The shallower you go, the deeper it gets...

    Enter the mind of Serg Riva, the world's preeminent aquatic couturier. No one takes swimwear design as seriously and no one does it as well. Stitching together fashion and celebrity, Serg Riva navigates socialites, intellectuals, and the cultural cognoscenti in search of poetic design, artistic inspiration, trusted friendship, and ultimately-love.

    Sound interesting? Why not read the book? It's the worlds best-selling fictional fashion memoir about couture swimwear (OK, it’s actually the world’s only fictional fashion memoir about couture swimwear, but it’s still really good!).

    Find it on Amazon by following this link.

    Thanks for checking this out. Let me know if you're interested in writing a blog review, I'll happily send more materials.

    Ciao, Serg
