First Outfit Of The Year


Happy New Year!

Considering my first outfit-post of 2014, I decided to make it special.  I broke out a stylish new piece from Rachel Roy that I picked up in a thrift-store for $8.  Eight dollars!  It's brand-new and fits me like a...  well, you'll learn.

This "dress" is actually a romper.  Yes!  I've been searched for rompers since they popped up on blogs last year.  I like their femininity and ease.  The shorts underneath the skirt obviate anxiety about hem-length -- and you know I prefer short.  Of course, going to the Ladies Room is a complicated dance but that's the price you pay for fashion.

I like how the romper drapes.  I like its color.  I like its epaulets.

What do you think?

  2. Really snappy, elegant ensemble. This has a sense of New York chicness to it if you ask me. You're a gorgeous lady in red here, Ally, and one that has me thinking I should bust out one of my red frocks for my blog again soon, too.

  26. i really like that you´r wearing a cold hued lippy to the warm red of the romper! with no other color in the outfit this is a very nice look!
    i love me a romper for easy summer wear......

  27. This is amazing! Seriously, you look smokin. And the fact that is a romper is much cooler because it's simply more practical when it comes to activities. Except going to the toilet. They suck for that.

    But damn girl, that colour on you! :)

  28. You are completely rocking this look - very sexy and classy at the same time!

  29. The draping of this piece is beautiful - it really takes what can be a juvenile piece of clothing into elegant, classy territory.
    That bright orange suits you, and you need to give me some lessons on rocking a bright lip color ... you do it with such flair, what's your secret? ;)

    1. First I make sure the base color won't clash with the hues of my clothing and then I throw caution to the wind! Meaning, I often elect to go to the extreme with wild, bold color. Why not?!

  30. Ok, WOW!! I really, really like this! I let out an audible "wow!" when I scrolled down and saw your full outfit. My absolute favorite so far. My boyfriend also sends his compliments. I love those tights!! You look great. Wonderful first outfit!

  31. i love rachel roy dresses. what a great find for $8! i think the patterned tights are just the right amount of interest here.

  32. That is one fantastic outfit! I love all of it and you look both cute and sexy in it. I think I could wear that style but not that colour. I have not worn a romper since I was a small child and they usually had snaps at the crotch to make life a bit easier.

  33. Ye gods--with those legs, you should always wear such smashing tights!
