Lace really dresses up a sunburn

Dress: Urban Vibe
Shoes: Bamboo (thrifted)
Handbag: Liz Claiborne Leather (thrifted)
Ring: Effy
Bracelet: Garage sale

Well, you can't quite see it, but I got some serious sunburn on my back today!  I sort of forgot about the back of this dress being sheer and skipped spraying the sun block on my back.  Big mistake!  Speaking of sun block, has anyone else heard about the guy who burst into flames?  I just heard this from my mom and the radio, they were talking about this guy who put on super high SPF sunblock on, then when he opened his BBQ, he caught on fire instantly!  Apparently high SPF sunblock is really flammable.  That so makes sense, you totally want to put something nice and flammable on yourself before you go roast in the sunshine, right?

I love lace dresses in the summer time, they are just so sweet and you can dress them up so many different ways. Not to mention, just about any shoe in the world works with a great lace dress! 

I've been obsessing over this two tone leather purse for the past two months, it's just been hanging on the rack at the thrift store, taunting me with it's two tone-ness.  But at the crazy price of a whole whoppin' $5, I just let it stay there.  Well, while looking for a jean jacket for little miss Izzy, I noticed they were having 50% off their purses.  Okay, I think I might be able to swing $2.50.  Obviously, I'm crazy.  But at least I'm a crazy person with a lovely two-toned leather purse.

Ooooh, this is going to leave some FREAKY tan lines...


  1. Wow ,hope it don´t hurt too much!
    Love the Dress ,the Colour is so pretty and it looks romantic ,gorgeous :)

    Nice Greetings from Vienna!

  2. Lace dress is so cute :) Bad tan lines ,you should put some aloa vera gel on it ,it helps :)

  3. that is one crazy sunburn!! ouch. on the flip side, your dress is really pretty :)

  4. I love this outfit! It's so feminine and vintage looking. That sunburn looks painful! Hopefully it will heal in a way that won't have a crazy pattern.

  6. this dress is amazing and so me!! I am so sorry about that sunburn --- I've never seen one like that!!! Use lots of aloe!


  7. Such a pretty dress!! I know it hurts...but I think the sunburn is kinda cool haha

  8. I definitely would grab the bag as well if it's 50% off after $5. Where else can you get $2.50 for Liz Claiborne bag except, goodwill or thrift store? That's the reason I love them so much.

    We should go to thrift store together sometimes. It must be fun.

    Your sunburn looks like animal prints (heheh).

    The lace dress is awesome Katie. It's in my wish list. who knows God listen to my wish and I'll find it at goodwill for half price.
