Flashback Time!

I was actually looking to do a post about my new jewelry today, but I ended up choosing to do an outfit of the day... a very old outfit of the day to be exact. I was looking through my photos on Facebook and I came across these little babies! 


This photo was snapped from my best friend's sweet 16 birthday party! Her birthday is June 4th which is the same as my Mommy's! For her party, she reserved an entire section for us at Olive Garden! How sweet! That was the first time I had ever gone to Olive Garden and let me tell you, it is delicious. (especially the fried eggplant!) 
For her party,  we were suppose to dress formal. It just so happened that around that time, I had picked up this dress from Kohl's on the clearance rack. It wasn't exactly my size, but it was only 7 dollars so I had to get it. I didn't even have an event to wear it to, but it turns out I do now! haha. 

The dress is split into two patterns. The top of the dress is a beautiful sea blue color. The dress on top is actually a one shoulder which means it hooks onto only one of my shoulders. I love these kinds of clothes, but the only problem is that the top was slightly too big on me. The side without the strap was constantly slipping down throughout the night which sucked. I tried to counterbalance this slipping top with a cardigan hoping it would keep the dress up. It sort of worked!


The bottom of dress is probably the best part! The bottom was an A-line skirt and I love these because they always look flattering on me. The lower part of the dress was white and had a splattered paint design on it in the colors of yellow, blue and pink! It is so cute and I love the pop of color it adds. The dress itself also had a black elastic band near the waist which I was thankful for. Belts/bands on the waist always look amazing on anyone. 
To finish my outfit off, I wore a pair of simple black flats and a set of stud earrings. 

DRESS- from Kohls
CARDIGAN- from Wetseal
SHOES- from Kohls
EARRINGS- from Wetseal


What do you think of my outfit?
What do you do when something doesn't fit you perfectly?
 I would love to get something tailored to me, but sadly I don't have that kind of cash hanging around!  Next best thing, duck tape and pins! lol
