A scarab, a skull, and a pretty dress!

Finally…an opportunity for this blue and white number to come out to play!!

If you are one of my regular readers, you will recall me mentioning – on more than one occasion! – how much I love shopping at Winners; and this BB Dakota dress is a perfect example of why!!  I purchased it several months ago (without any particular event in mind) because I simply could not pass up a pretty, genuine silk party frock for a measly $15!!

I thought it might be lovely for a wedding or a birthday celebration…but as it happens, I decided to debut it for my boss’s annual “ceilidh;” figuring that the flirty skirt would be just perfect for a little dancing!!  The open, square neckline seemed too obvious for a necklace; so I experimented with my beetle brooch and decided on this not-so-obvious placement instead!!

And the clutch?!  It’s fuschia suede and it has a skull motif…in other words, it’s perfect, right?!

      Winners is the BEST, dear Dawn…as long as you're prepared for a bit of a treasure hunt!! But then again, you have Marshalls in California; and that's kind of the same thing, right?!

    I wrote it already at Instagram this dress is so nice. The pattern is really special also the cut and how you wear it. And I really like your makeup. I never made a eyelid line like yours and I be crazy about your skin. Have a nice weekend you lovely lady, Conny xoxo

      Hello dearest Conny…I hope you are enjoying your weekend, too!! Something about this dress just says "party!" to me, and I knew I would eventually find the perfect occasion to wear it!! And since I don't like to use a lot of eyeshadow, doing my eyeliner this way has become a bit of a "signature" look for me!!
