I Have Giraffes on My Ears


Giraffe Earrings: Claire's
Heart Necklace: Gift from a Friend
Silver Rope Necklace and Silver Ring: Gifts from Hubby
Yellow Necklace and Black Stud Bracelet: Burke's Outlet
Ceramic Watch: TJMaxx
Dress: Gift from Mom
Belt: Local Leather Shop
Zebra Wedges: Dillard's (clearance)

The goal in picking out my dress was to wear something I hadn't worn in a while.  I must have succeeded, because someone commented at church on my "new" dress.  I had a hard time convincing them it is old.

This dress has a bubble hem (remember a while back when those were just THE THING?), but it's a subtle one, not too poofy.  Since the dress has an overall classic look, the bubble hem comes off as a fun feature, rather than a trend defined item.  At lease that's what I think. :o)

My favorite part of this outfit has to be my earrings!  Aren't they the most fun? :o)  I giggled over pairing them with this outfit, as they seem to be more something worn with a t-shirt.

It's also been a while since I wore the big Silver ring Hubby made for me for Christmas a couple years back.  He has plans to make me some more rings, maybe I should ask him to make them different sizes so I can wear them all at once?  It'd be like wearing brass knuckles! :o)

PS:  I've decided to try "open" comments.  If I get weird comments from the Annons, I'll just go back to making y'all sign in or maybe that horrible word verification thingy. :o)

  1. Your pictures made me laugh!! Very cute smile you have. And look at that, you do have a Giraffe suspended from your ears! They ride along perfectly with the dress. Your hubs made the ring? It's gorgeous, I want one!

  2. The giraffes are hilarious! And you're right, they are even better with that gorgeous dress as opposed to jeans.

  8. Now that's how to wear a statement necklace. Really, that's the best look I've seen of layering necklaces to integrate rather than dominate a statement. Not to mention your cute little giraffes just hanging out. This girl knows how to accessorize! Lovely new old dress too.
