A baby shower

top- 99 cents thrifted (I showed it to u before, i lied to the salvation employee about the tag)
skirt- $2 something thrifted
shoes- $12 dollars 2nd hand

Well well, what does one wear to a baby shower where attendees are mostly in the beauty business? Or to be more straight forward, what do I wear to Caitlin's baby shower so I don't scare her family and friends made up of stylish stylists? The answer was this little polka dot skirt number. Being a hater, I had decided a long time ago that I "hated" polka dots. It was late 2006 when Forever 21 flooded their stores with them and made them trendy. After that I stayed away. But I couldn't deny the fit and accessibility of this piece at the Goodwill when I found it. I decided to open my heart to polka dots or else I might be missing out on something in this beautiful world.

Speaking of hating, I also "hate" baby showers. But this one changed my mind. Caitlin called it a "rager" and told me there was going to be sangria. My friend Lisa gave me a ride and we caught up the entire way and back. Our friend Sarah aka Pinky made the trek from Napa and told us all her wine barrel throwing adventures and how her yoga teacher went from a he to a she. Our dance teacher "K.B. the Great" came and shared a plate of our favorite pasta salads with me. Oh yeah and I WON a game! I guessed how many diapers were in the diaper cake 49! I was right on point. What did I win? Kerastase and a scented candle! I told you they were some fancy folk.

Who wore it better? Caitlin or B? Bitch stole her look!

  21. I tend to agree, on principle, Baby showers are fucking lame. I hate that game they make you play where you have to sniff the diapers with smeared chocolate in them and guess what kind of candy bar it was. what kind of gross-ass shit is that?! Not cool.

    But I'm glad you got over your fear of polka dots, because this skirt really is becoming on you.

  22. Gimmie those shoes please.....YOU LOOK SO HOT!

    Get Up & Go

  23. Love the polka dots and the fierce heels!

  24. You look pretty dang stylish to me girl. Very pretty if I do say so myself :)

    Oh and yeah some babyshowers suck, but every once in a while they rock, sounds like you had a great time.

    P.s. I TOTALLY love your skirt !
