Lots of Love for Luck Be a Lady Dresses

Wednesday, November 13, 2013

Chilly weather makes me cry. Maybe not literally but whenever I have to encounter it, I whine and moan and kick up a fuss. I'm back to baby-sitting my doggy (my mom is out of town for a conference and my dad is not good at taking care of things) so I have to go out every few hours to let him outside. And it's effing cold! The sun was actually shining today and I was debating heading outside for a photoshoot. It was really pretty with all the leaves. But then the wind would kick up and I could feel the chill to my bones, even with my huge parka and hoodie and sweater layering. I don't know how well that would go with just modeling a dress outside! Needless to say, I ended up going back upstairs to nap (aka hibernate) and am going to try for a photoshoot tomorrow (these photos are from before Halloween, before the rain and all the coldness.) However, for tomorrow's planned photoshoot, I might utilize my apartment building's library facilities. I had used them before when I took a photoshoot for a Modcloth review contest. It's not glamorous by any means, but I foresee it being my location of choice for most of this winter. My apartment is too cramped and usually too dirty for pics!

This is the last of the batch of the photos my mom helped me out on. And yes, totally busted, Hallowe'en decorations in the back. But I already admitted when they were taken, heh.

My parents bought this dress for me during the Modcloth Black Friday sale last year (it's the Luck Be a Lady Dress in Equine. It was discontinued forever but it's back on the site, although still sold out. Maybe it will be re-stocked?) I'm not a big fan of brown but I love the little belt details and I love the fit and flare. And HORSIES!

I decided to re-create this outfit for the blog after wearing it out to the bar and a lot of people really liking it. I think it's cute but not my favourite. Like I said, I don't really like brown! I did take a few pics of that night because I meant to post them for Shenanigans Saturday (which has gone the way of crickets lately - not because I don't go out but because I forget to take pics!) I will post those pics here, since they are semi-related.

I love these earrings. They were from this website called titanicjewels.com that I bought when I was around 14. These are the "strolling" earrings Rose wore in the movie Titanic. I also own the "dinner", "jump", "breakfast" and Madeline Astor's dinner earrings.

I got this coat off a swap group (although I did pay for it) and it's the perfect little topper! I've been wearing it with everything, even my casual clothes. Love, love, love.

And since this is Wardrobe Wednesday, the name of the game is I usually say something I want more of in my closet. Ta da! I want more Luck Be the Lady dresses. They are so awesome. The flare of them is fantastic. When I went out that Saturday night, I went to talk to my friend in the DJ booth and when I stepped out, it just poofed up all around me. Not in an obscene way, but like I floated down. They are just so feminine and pretty!

My pick out of the current Lady Luck Dresses list is the Luck Be a Lady Dress in Avian. I think it's super pretty and just really pops! The quality of these dresses is really great and at $74.99, I think I might have to collect them all. To see the others, check out Modcloth.

I love Modcloth, but I also love eBay. I'm going to be on a quest to find the discontinued ones. Look how pretty they all are!

That's all for me! Any items you own in multiple patterns or colours? Anything in your daily routine you've had to do differently now that winter has rolled around?
