With A Little Help From My Friends

This top came from Wendy.  This skirt came from Megan.  The jewelry came from Jazmin.  If you don't like this outfit, blame my friends, not me!

Actually, this ensemble does appeal to me.  What do you think?

  1. I personally love this outfit. I might also be biased because A. I got you that skirt ;) B. I totally just thrifted a very similar top and C. the yellow bracelet is a great dash of color for the otherwise colorless outfit.

  2. I really like it. I think the polka dots are great. As a variation you might also consider the exact same items but tuck the shirt into the skirt and use a wide belt as your pop of colour and to add some definition to your waist.

  3. I like it and agree with Maria that tucking in the shirt may work better. the black line across the bottom of the shirt hangs a bit too low for my liking. I love polka dots and simple black and whit combo. A very classy outfit!

  4. I actually think that this shirt gives the 'drop waist' effect to this dress- verey vintage and old hollywood! I love it this way! And you have a dazzling smile! Looking beautiful..BTW Such stylish friends you have, with great taste in clothes!:-) Hope you are having a wonderful day!

  7. It's cute! Very 1920s, in a way.

    1. Exactly what I was going for. Like the character Peppy Miller in the movie, "The Artist".

  8. I like the dropped waist look - very 20s/flapper-ish and right in style. The little touch of yellow is very nice.

    Cute poses! I should really try to vary up my poses...

  9. This is kind of off topic, I was thinking about it at work today. Have you ever done a virtual make over? I've been playing with one for about a week now and it is really fun. You can play with different hairstyles, makeup, accessories, and some even let you change your eye color. I know you are more focused on clothes, but it would be fun to mess with makeup without actually having to put it on, much less effort :) I also think you would have fun with dress up games, I know I do. When I start, I'm playing for at least an hour.

    1. When the Internet started to offer such options, I played with them but they were too rudimentary back then to transform someone as unfeminine as me. I'd like to explore this. If you have any recommendations, let me know. Thanks!

    2. I think DailyMakeover has something like that!

    3. This is the one I have been using lately: http://www.dailyglow.com/virtual-makeover
      you have to sign up though, and its mostly celebrity hairstyles, no eye color changing, but you can get some pretty good results. I mostly use it for hair as I'm changing it all the time, but the make up is pretty good too. Post some pictures if you come up with something good, okay?

      I also have a question. Can I have a picture on here without having a blog?

  10. I love the couch-poses :) I really like this look, it has a great 1920's vibe to it.

  11. I really like this! It's so feminine and lovely! And I love anything with polka dots, so Megan did a great job picking out that skirt. This is really just a great look overall Ally, your friends have done you good!

  12. That last picture is the best! I can't wait to kick off my shoes after a long day. I like polka dots because they're so playful. I agree with the other readers that this looks very 1920s.

  13. Ally my darling, you look so gorgeous ... yip, blame us for this look :-). Like Megan, it's partly my fault for sending you the top that looks so cute backwards.

    Hugs

  15. I know they aren't considered 'flattering' by modern standards I love dropped waist dresses/outfits. The skirt is to sweet.

  16. I'll have to admit, I don't like the tights. I think the combination of such a long skirt and tights of the same color is just too much. Plus, you know I love me some of your legs.

    Love everything else though. So Daisy Buchanan!

  17. I really like the outfit, except the white tights. The pop of yellow is the perfect addition of color. The top and skirt are super fabulous and very feminine. I agree with Ashley, show off those legs! Heather

  21. Blame your friends for helping you create a gorgeous look? Heck yeah!

    I'm thinking along Terri's lines, this outfit does have that 20s vibe. It completely suits you. I love the relaxed photos. I'll have to admit the first adjective that came to mind is, "Sassy!"
