3rd degree

Vinca Dress - All Saints, ebay
Belt - thrifted
Sweater - Rugged Warehouse
Shoes - Fly London

Kari asked the last time I wore this dress to see the shape of it. It took awhile for me to come back around through my closet but today felt right to remix this dress. (Worn here and here) It's very showy, very fitted. I prefer it with a topper as it's too fitted to wear much underneath. It's very similar to the deadwood dress Megan gifted me, but since that one is a larger size it's a bit easier to layer.

I thrifted this patent leather belt a looong time ago. However I've always put it back on the belt holder. I don't know why, it's a fabulous red belt. I'm still looking for sweaters that fit like this one. I bought it in the early blog years trying out these magical "cardigans" everyone was wearing - I was so fashion backward. I didn't realize how much of a holy grail this cardigan was with it's scoop neck and perfect length.

The reason for today's title? I burned the snot out of my knuckle while cooking lunch. Do not, I repeat, do not stick your hand in the toaster oven. Especially when said toaster oven is not tall enough to fit the food and your hand without one or the other touching the element. Frick. April is not turning out to be a great month for my hands.


  1. Such a great dress. Red is a great colour on you.

    And you know how I feel about those shoes!

  2. That cardigan is fantastic on you, but I really do love the dress on its own. It was made for you!

    I'm sorry about your hand...hope it heals soon!

  3. Oh no! Be careful! Glad this dress (and belt) made it back out in rotation. They are both cuh-ute!

  4. Been there done that on the toaster oven! And I have the scar to prove it. Owwwwie.

    I love this dress, you just look adorable in it, it fits you like a glove.

  5. Perfect cardis really are the holy grail. And toaster ovens are fierce and cruel things; I can't count how many times I've singed a knuckle.

    I love that dress. Every time I go past/into All Saints, I think of you. I can only get away with the odd AS piece, but you rock them all. :)

  6. I love the plaid, and you should definitely wear that red belt more often.

  7. That is a great dress - I love the fit of it on you!

  8. Wow, that dress is awesome - what a great cut. I love how the back seaming works with the plaid pattern to create an ultra-curvy shape.

    Lol, I do that kind of stuff all the time - I always have burns and cuts on my hands. Today, I sliced the tip of a finger on a carton and bled all over my desk.

  9. Now I have to look up FLY London shoes, too, right? lol Oh, how I love yours. And oh, wow, whatta belt! It's perfect with that well-tailored dress.

    Now you know why I don't cook much. It's dangerous :P

  10. oh em gee I want those shoezies! and that is the most darling dress ever.

  11. Really cute dress: the colors work on you and the shape is very... um... shapely.

    I'm cringing at the report of your injury. I've done that and know how much it hurts. Sorry, bud.

  12. Lovely dress indeed.

  13. Poor thing - take care of those hands!

    Fantastic dress - I love the print. You are such the AllSaints girl!

  14. That plaid dress fits you perfectly! I actually think it looks really good by itself without the cardigan :)

  15. That dress is smoking! You look gorgeous in it! A good cardigan or two or ten is always good to have on hand.;)

  16. Ow! I hope your hand heals soon. I always put Mederma on my burn scars to fade them. We're looking to buy a toaster oven soon, and now I know to get the one with the largest opening.

  17. i came across your page searching for "huge toaster oven," and just wanted to take a moment to say you look AMAZING in that outfit! do keep it up!
