You're a Vegetabe

October 24, 2018

Whenever I wear this dress I always think of Michael Jackson's Wanna Be Startin' Something where he sings, "You're a vegetable, you're a vegetableee" Silly, I know but I just get such a kick out of this dress.
I first saw this dress on ModCloth ages ago but to my dismay they discontinued the style. Over the summer ModCloth brought it back for $120, wayyyyy over my dress budget. As fate would have it, I ended up finding the dress on eBay for half of Modcloth's price. Still expensive, but an eBay seller accepted my final offer and this dress was finally happily in my closet.
I love everything about this dress. The vegetables are so colorful and it just makes me so happy. Who doesn't love vegetables?! Its definitely a spring/summer dress, but can work into fall with a leather jacket. It could definitely work with tights/ankle boots too. I try not to get too busy with the dress since it clearly speaks for itself, but could get crazy with fun feather earrings to go along with it.
Mallory and I basically recreated the beginning of Cabin in the Woods searching for this art installation by Eboni Patterson for Open Spaces (A KC arts experience).
This blue swimming pool is filled with flowers, candles, and teddy bears. Its truly a sight to be seen. Open Spaces ends on October 28 so make sure you make it out to Swope Park.

Back to outfit details, I bought these SJP Doris D'orsay pumps for my birthday and they are so cute! This is the first time I've broken them out on the blog despite getting them in April.
I have been on the hunt for a new purse with a rather vintage/modern style. I found this clutch from the Balmain x H&M collection which I completely missed back in 2015 because I fell asleep... I love the red suede and gold handle. This purse goes with everything. I have been really craving a new luxury bag and this purse is enough to subside my purse lust.
I feel like it has been a bit since I've posted an outfit on the blog. Good news! I've been shooting a lot of content these past couple of weeks and I'm so excited to share it with you!

Aside from the blog life, work and grad school keep me busy, but I am managing it much better than I did in the summer. I finished international business and am now taking a stats class. I am learning how to balance my work, school, and personal life a lot better these days finding time to catch a movie, see my friends, and volunteer. I'm grateful to learn how to manage my schedule earlier in life although at times in can be frustrating.

I feel like I keep blinking and the months are changing I can't believe November will be here in just a mere week and gingerbread lattes soon! I have held October dearly in my heart friends. I hope you have too.

  1. What a cute dress! I've never purchased anything from Modcloth and to be honest, I have no idea why. Their designs are so cute and original and this dress is a perfect demonstration. I know I always say this, but I can't get over how you always seem to find what you're looking for, for such great price points else wear! You really are such a savvy shopper! I hope you're enjoying your weekend so far, beauty!

  2. This location is absolutely perfect for this dress! Don't you love it when you can get what you want for half the price? I hate spending a ton of money on dresses too, but this one is just SO cute. Love how you made it edgy with the moto jacket. Happiest Monday, beautiful! xx
