third verse same as the first


yes, i am in love with this peach dress. i think this is the fourth time i’ve worn it since i got it last month, but i don’t care. it’s such a versatile piece that each time i’ve worn it, i’ve been able to come up with a different look. today i was celebrating the late summer that’s finally arrived in the bay area with temperatures reaching up over 90 degrees. i know i’ve talked a lot about the weather lately, but if you live in the area, you know what i’m talking about! i’ve spent far too many summer days in front of the space heater wrapped in a big sweater this summer, so i’m glad to be able to go out into the hot sun and even get a little sweaty. that’s what popsicles are for, after all!

dress: american apparel lace chiffon dress
blouse: vintage eyelet blouse from helgesok vintage
shoes: thrifted vintage woven loafers
bag: loft woven leather clutch
pin: plastic bike pin (it came for free in a ‘bike to work day’ tote bag last year)

    It is really cute so I really would understand why you wear it so very often.

    Innocent school girl look. Like the sheer effect of the blousy top vs. pink dress. later, FashionLifeCoach

    Love your cute, girly dresses! Your outfit looks so mood uplifting! :)

    I absolutely adore the sleeves and collar on that blouse. The cut of both the blouse and the dress go extremely well with your new haircut. Bravo! Such a well put together outfit.

    This dress is AA? Wow! I'd never thought it is, the way you wera it makes it look like a unique vintage piece! You are so fab! :)

    Completely understand why you're so smitten with the dress. What a brilliant pin (looks like your bike to work days are far superior to the ones at my office!)

    the weather has been super weird here! I just wish the sunshine had happened when I wasn't in school and could actually enjoy it.

    I love your little bike pin:)

    oh so sophi

    Love these pictures. I especially love when you do that pose in picture #4. Its so Erin :)

    This dress is amazing — the first time you featured it on here, I looked it up and wanted to buy it, but alas, wallet is a little light these days…

    And the bicycle pin is just too cute for words. I love how your personality shines through your outfits!!

    Enjoy the Indian summer out West!

    Theres something super charming about the pretty peach dress with that florescent green bike pin. Funny how such a tiny thing can make all the difference for me♥

    Ahaha, love it! Your pictures made me so happy! Your tattoos and pixie cut look fabulous with such a girly outfit. Beautiful.

    I live in SD… yeah, hot here too! Dang! Talk about a late bloomer, California!


  16. BlueVanilla September 27, 2010 at 8:23 pm #

    That dress is super cute! I love things you just pull from your closet over and over…thank goodness for hot weather in this area…96 degrees in Santa Cruz saturday..unreal!

  20. Martina September 27, 2010 at 9:57 pm #

    the color of the dress looks very good on you! if i get something new i really like, i also wear it so many times! don't care about it and go for it =)

  21. Winnie September 27, 2010 at 10:02 pm #

    Oooh I think that's such a cute dress, I'd wear it all the time if I had that too! I'm not ashamed to say that I wear my favourite dresses a lot too!

  22. Flora September 27, 2010 at 10:36 pm #

    Love the brooch, so cute!

  23. My Hideaway September 27, 2010 at 11:42 pm #

    That dress and blouse go well with your hair, both the pixie cut and the dark color. Nice contrast on both accounts:) Also, I can see why you want to wear that dress so often; it's really cute.

  24. Little Monarch September 27, 2010 at 11:58 pm #

    well with a dress that good why wouldnt you want to wear it everyday!

    Agreed, it's SO nice to finally have some pleasant weather in the bay area!! Even going to SF State it's been warm out there, which is pretty rare. Cute dress, I had no idea it was from American Apparel!

  29. hannah September 28, 2010 at 1:20 am #

    you have also made me fall for the dress! aa should pay you for this ish!

  30. Lydia September 28, 2010 at 1:48 am #

    You are making me want that dress like no one's business! I love a blouse layered under a dress, makes me feel all school-girl like. It's a good thing I didn't go to private school, I'd probably hate that look then. Delightful as usual.

  31. KristiMcMurry September 28, 2010 at 2:53 am #

    Looks like an absolutely glorious day :) Your dress is fantastic!

  32. SMASH September 28, 2010 at 3:38 am #

    Love the color of the dress and the neon bike pin!


  33. Rio September 28, 2010 at 5:02 am #

    Cute dress! And oh man, it was over 100 degrees in Santa Cruz today! Indian Summer madness!
