WIW - The $25 Bailey 44 dress and one other.

Some of you might remember me mentioning scoring a Bailey 44 dress i have been stalking for a long time on Ebay for $25? This is it! A seller had it listed NWT's at $60 but had a best offer button so i offered $25 thinking they'd never accept and they did! Yay!

I wore it for a day of shopping with my best friend who came down from Alaska to visit me. She just about died in our intense heat. x.x

Pictures 4-6 is what i wore today. Again it's crazy hot and i don't even want to wear clothes! Not even my office's normally frigid a/c could keep the heat away today!

Thanks for looking! Say whatever pops into your pretty little heads!

    Yeah, it's cold and rainy here. I would enjoy some heat, actually.

    I love your B44 dress and your second outfit! The colors on the top are very cool together.

  • Joy replied 11 years ago

    What popped into my mind was "adorable". You are master of the feminine dress with tough accessories with studs, metal, and chain!

  • Midwest Girl replied 11 years ago

    Both are great, but the green dress is so cute especially with your sandals--you scored a great bargain!

  • annagybe replied 11 years ago

    I love both outfits! They're spot-on!

  • Aida replied 11 years ago

    Love them both! Fab dress, and SUPER cute hair in the second outfit. You accessorize SO so well Nicole! Sorry you don't feel like wearing any clothing though, because you have so many cute pieces :}

  • Jonesy replied 11 years ago

    What a great dress--love that sash-y detail and the different stripes! Your second outfit is fabulous too!

    It is craaaazy hot here in Michigan too (101 yesterday, 102 expected tomorrow), so I can relate.

    ditto Anna.

    You look gorgeous in both dresses! The green is incredibly cute and I just love the yellow necklace with the second dress. Really makes the color pop. You have a real flair for accent colors and accessories!

    Not yet capable of original thought - ditto what Joy said!

  • kimana517 replied 11 years ago

    Ah! I want it all! Seriously, LOVE the Bailey dress and I can see why you stalked it. For $25?! Even better! Love the second outfit too, and those shoes rock.

  • Kiwichik replied 11 years ago

    Great score - love the Bailey 44 dress on you and your second outfit is fab too - love the shoes.

  • Ornella replied 11 years ago

    Your posts are a treat every single time. If there was a list "In my next life I'd like to return as (insert name here) from YLF", your name would be one of the top runners for my second incarnation.

    I'm happy you scored that dress and I'm sure the dress is happy too - it came to the right home. The handbag is gorgeous and so is your ring.
    Today's outfit is cool too (no pun intended), necklace, relaxed handbag, sandals et al.

  • CocoLion replied 11 years ago

    I am so continuously delighted with your style Nicole/Nikki! That is what popped into my unwashed (but soon to be remedied) head.

  • nicoleb replied 11 years ago

    Thanks everyone! I'm happy you liked these outfits just as much as i do! :)

    Denise - Thank you! I'm inspired by your cool style! It's made me want to try moving in a slightly boho direction. We'll see if that happens. :)

    Ceit - thank you! It makes me happy to hear; sometimes i feel like i'm all over the place lol.

    Ornella - wow! Thank you so much!

    kimana517 - isn't the dress cool?! I love unexpected details! So happy to have been able to afford it. Sometimes i feel like you can only get special details like that at higher price points so i miss out on a lot. :-/

    Meredith1953 - Thank you! I loooooooove accessories! :D

    Jonesy- Yeah our heat index has been pushing us in the 100s too. They said 108 yesterday. x.x i *think* it's supposed to "cool down" to 80s this weekend. *fingers crossed*

    Aida - Thanks! I have been working harder on figuring out how to do more things with my hair now that it's getting longer. In the past when i just let it be naturally curly it had a "do not touch when dry" rule burned in my brain (it frizzed out) so it's been kind of hard to get past that.
