in which i've got sugarlips

Photobucket

Just kidding. I don't really have sugarlips. (Unless the ridiculous amount of Girl Scout cookies I've been consuming have sweetened them unbeknownst to me... I have been eating Thin Mints and Samoas nonstop!) But what I do have is this amazing Rhyme & Reason dress from Sugarlips Apparel! And I won't lie, I kind of love it. Even more than my Thin Mints.

(Rhyme & Reason Dress: c/o Sugarlips; cardigan: old navy; faux fur: h&m; bracelet: vintage/gift; shoes: seychelles)

Sugarlips is a fashion brand based in Los Angeles (swoon, sunny sunshine), and when they asked if I might like to choose one of their dresses for my very own, you can bet I wasn't about to say 'no'! The Rhyme & Reason Dress is so gorgeous--even prettier in person than it is online--and incredibly well-made. I cannot wait to wear it simply in the summer months (to show off the super-sexy open back!) with a pair of sky-high wedges--and maybe a straw hat!

Here are a few of my favorites from the Sugarlips site. I'm seriously thinking about buying all of these... how adorable would the Saturday Lounger be for hanging around the house in cat-eye makeup and a beehive or bouffant?

Speaking of summer months, after dosing myself with Ibuprofen to kill the raging headache I had all day at work yesterday, I spent the rest of the evening altering a peachy-pink terrycloth sundress. I was pretty proud of myself when all was said and done--I brought in both sides and shortened it significantly, and my sewing machine hummed along without a single mishap!

Does anyone else feel the blogger-pressure to dress for spring, even though it's still only 2 degrees above freezing outside right now? I feel like florals and corals are on the brain, and all of those bloggers in the southern hemisphere are pulling out the S/S prettiness while I'm still stuck in A/W (and will be for a while now). Oh well, work with what you've got, I guess!

(PS: I know it's too cold for bare legs, still, but I secretly kind of wanted to show off my blogging battle scars before they faded completely--check out those knee bruises! They were much, much worse last week, but they're still pretty ridiculous. I'm hardcore. Or, the ice is, anyway.)

Happy Hump Day, friends!

  2. This dress is amazing, such gorgeous detailing on it. With the belted cardigan and fur it's perfect, my favorite look EVER.
    As soon as it hits February my brain wants it to be spring and I want to wear spring clothes, so reading blogs that aren't covered in 2 feet of snow adds to that. Living in a place with an extra long winter is not fun.

  4. you are one brave lady for going out with no tights on! Your dress is lovely although I dont know how it could compare to Thin Mints, they're the best thing ever. I have a couple boxes in my freezer right now. I prefer to eat them cold with milk. So good!

  5. Beautiful dress! I can definitely see it being perfect in summer too. Great snag!

    Love your blogger battle scars! Or I should say, what I really love is that you are showing off your bruised knees. Big bruises always make me feel like such a badass, haha.

  9. The dress is so cute, love the mixed blues. But OMG your poor knees! I forget how cold you must be standing around in the snow in bare legs, you do such a goo job smiling for the camera you don't even look cold.
