Well, it appears we're all still here, although there's still a couple more hours left to the 21st. No "Happy End of the World" party tonight folks.
A little while ago I won a contest that the lovely Ms Erin over at Loops Looks was holding. (It was really cool and exciting since I've only ever won one one small raffle in my life.) She generously offered a gift card to the winner which was so fun, the kids and I got to go see a movie with part of it and I was able to get a few fun things at AE(on crazy clearance) with the rest off the gift card. This dress was one of those items, I have trouble saying no to a pretty lace dress and this one ended up being only $6 after the extra 40% off clearance and a 20% off coupon. (And thank you Erin so much!)
Not only did this lovely dress end up being a gift from Erin, but then she always gave me a great idea for wearing them. I love patterned tights but I always sort of worry about styling them in a juvenile manner. Erin had a post earlier this week about wearing patterned tights for the office, so I copied her shamelessly and paired these tights with a sheath dress and cardigan. (It looks like an a-line dress belted, but it was actually labeled as a sheath dress.) I of course made it a little weird with the parka, hat and loafers but I'll take any chance I can get right now not to wear boots.
