Got Game (+ giveaway)

Dress? Vintage and handmade, thrifted Necklaces? Bottom; c/o Loft, middle; gift from Merl (here), top; thrifted Clutch? thrifted Sandals? MTNG c/o DNA shoes (here)

One time when I wore this dress, it split its back seam (this happens more often, let's blame my hips...) and my Mom had to have my back, quite literally, so I could walk to my car. But other than that, this dress has been good to me. I've actually worn it a ton in the last few years (here, here and here). It goes from a bit dressier to casual very easily. That's good because I started out this particular day dressed up with heels and ended the day with my MTNG sandals, wrinkles and dog hair all over myself. Sandals, heels, wrinkles, dog hair... this dress can handle it all.
The other thing of note is the fact that I can't stop wearing all. the. necklaces. One used to suffice but now, why wear one, when three is even better? Marisa told me I have necklace game and I think I like that term... My latest addition is the long, colourful necklace from Loft. I love that it has good weight to it (I don't know why I am a freak about this but I hate flimsy jewelry... I want it to be solid) and it layers with all my other good stuff.

And lucky for you local readers, Loft just opened up a new location in Lime Ridge mall and they are letting me give away a $50 gift card to their new location. Just tell me your best pun and leave a comment. Or... actually just leave a comment with a way to get a hold of you if you win. Obviously, this giveaway is for local peeps... Unless you are planning a getaway to the Hammer sometime soon;)...

*Giveaway closed. Thanks for entering!

I'm too hot to think of a pun. The mall is a great place to escape the heat. See how that works? :)

Pretty sure you've got my deets already.

Beautiful dress! And, I've had the same problem with splitting dresses as well... at church!

I can identify with the dress splitting - happened to me as a b-maid this winter! Not cool!

Embarrassed that I couldn't think of a pun on my own, so I resorted to googling puns (and came up with terrible lines like "don't sweat the petty inks, and don't pet the sweaty inks." Gross...). Lame right.

A thought of pub loses it's oomph. It's got to be off the cuff! (Maybe that's a baby pun actually, cuff, fashion blog, you know?)
But cute dress none the less!

My dress split while riding my bike yesterday. Tight dresses with no stretch and bikes are a bad idea apparently :)

I'm pretty terrible at puns, so I'll leave a joke instead. Given how much I'd like it to rain right now, I think its appropriate:

Q: Why does Snoop Dog carry an umbrella?

A: For drizzle

I love your blog, the colors of that dress are superb!
