Kings, Queens, and Omnibuses

Shirt: Ralph Lauren via TJMaxx,  Vest: H&M,  Skirt: c/o Rose Wholesale ,
Earrings + Purse: Target,  Boots: vintage - thrifted at Savers

Rose Wholesale sent me some stuff.  This skirt, a dress, and leggings.  None of which looked like they did online.  Good thing I'll wear just about anything, including cartoon drawings of British royalty.  It's a conversation starter, that's for sure.  I'll post a full review once I've had a chance to wear everything.

Wrap Wisdom

I have decided (again), that I need wrap dresses.  They're easy, classic, and grown-up, yet a bit flirty - good combo.  I used to have a few for business life, but over the course of a couple clothes-swaps, only one remains...and I should really get it hemmed (boo).  Isn't it just so much better to buy new?  

Your response: Yes of course, Jill, how wise you are.

Thanks, pals.

Ok.  So, if I were an affordable, wrap dress, where would I be?  It should be a true wrap.  The faux kind is alright, but I do feel like the fit is better when it actually wraps.  Also, it should hit just above my knee.  Most average women's sizes are too long.  Sleeves can be long or 3/4, because I want to be able to wear this sucker year round.  Let's throw a sleeveless in for good measure - whatever, it's layerable.

Old Navy online might be the answer.  I'll let you know when it arrives.  I ordered from petites, but if you require regular or tall fit, those are available as well.  Prices range from $12 clearance to $35 regular price.  Um, please don't buy anything full price at Old Navy (it's just wrong).  If there isn't a discount code today (there is = 20%), try back tomorrow.

Converse Style

Converse has never taken a break from fashion.  It's been awesome since 1917 and will continue it's awesomeness for the duration of time, I'm sure.  My love for the fabulous sneaker was reignited over Sisu's Spring Look Book, where I broke out my red hi-tops for the first time this year.

It's time to expand my Chuck Taylor collection.  Starting with classic black and then delving in to some funky prints.  Long live sporty chic...
