Swallows in Flight: ootd

    I love the silhouette of swooping swallows; they're such graceful birds.  Pair them with a pale pink floral chiffon and you've got my ideal dress.  I've been excited about LC Lauren Conrad ever since it first hit the shelves at my local Kohl's.  I felt like there was finally a designer who understood my style, and I was so excited to try it.  Even though her style still appeals to me, I've really struggled to find anything that actually looks good on me.   It was all the right colors and prints, but all the wrong cuts and shapes.  
    Finally, after all these years of admiring, I've found something that I think looks pretty good on my shape and is just my style.  I will say that this dress has a serious design flaw in the fact that this shear chiffon fabric is unlined at the skirt.  When I held up the dress to look at it, I could see my hand through it, so buying a beige half skirt is a must for this dress.  Other than that, it's is really lovely and a great fit.  I've got one more LC item on the way from ThredUp.  It's a cute little printed skirt and I have pretty reasonable hopes for it.  I'll share that as soon as it makes it across the ocean to me.  I have to say one word of praise about Japan.  I love novelty purses and I never fail to find one at my local thrift store when I pop in.  This one was a book purse for about $5.  I am so going to miss these thrift stores when we leave.
