Wearing: Tiny Windows Dress

Monday, September 13, 2010

So, as you know, I'm officially no longer a twenty's something
individual--and I'm really all right with that.
As awesome as my twenty's were, I feel as though I'm at
the tippy-top of a giant roller coaster,
waiting for the fall and the crazy ride that follows.
God is at work in my life and I can't imagine what
the next great adventure might be.

On my 30th birthday, of all days, I wanted to look like the grown-up I'msupposed to be, so I went with me newly acquired Tiny Windows dress.
If you follow me, you know I can never leave anything alone,
which is why I permanently popped the collar.
Diane von Furstenburg is always doing this with her designs,
and since I can't really afford her dresses,
I'm trying to make do with what I have.
Plus, I love how a stand-up collar takes a dress from serviceable to something that commands attention.

  1. What a perfect dress for the birthday girl - you look so girly and pretty, I love it! This dress was such a steal, I'm glad you were able to get one!

  3. Kristina, I love this dress! And your style :) I actually bought a dress that I would love your opinion on. It's a very cute black dress but kinda of bland. Needs help and since I don't have much style at all I thought maybe you could help. What color of tights to wear, change the belt color, shoes? I would like to wear it to homecoming, but don't know if it will work or not. Contact me and I'll send you a pic, that is if you're willing to help an "old" friend, in more ways than one! (age, years known, style, etc...lol)

  4. I like this dress, especially with that belt!!! Just perfect for a birthday celebration!

  5. Hope you had a great birthday! You looked great for your special day regardless =)

  6. Wow, genius with the collar! You have such a great eye!!
