PurdyGirl: Got Me A Purdy Dress and Purdy Bracelet!
One thing that I always look forward to during the summer (call me "cheesy") is street fairs. I love the fresh lemonade, made-to-order crepes, and cheap trinkets found at every street fair. This past saturday, Sunshine and I happily came across a street fair on Laguardia Place.
And what's on 540 Laguardia Place? Purdy Girl!
I couldn't ignore the 20% off posters plastered in Purdy Girl's window. For once, Sunshine was in total agreement that I needed to buy a dress. Once again, I had dressed inappropriately. It was cool-ish during the morning, so I had thrown on a pair of jeans and a t-shirt. Little did I know that it was going to be crazy hot later on in the day.
We had stopped by Urban Outfitters looking for a quick-change dress. Much to my frustration, I couldn't find anything worth purchasing there. I was hopeful that I would find something not-expensive-but-fun at Purdy Girl. And I did!
I purchased the following strapless, ruffle dress in olive green for $60.80 (after the 20% discount). The belt was included!! Yes, I know...I usually don't do strapless or ruffles, but the combination on this dress was perfect! Because the ruffles are big and flattering, it's not girly and rather slimming. And it's SECURE (I know you know what you I'm talking about). I did a "jumping" test and the dress passed with flying colors!
I was slightly worried about the armpit area pudge. But once I had a strapless bra on, the pudge miraculously disappeared. I'm not sure how that works, but I'm not complaining. I'm just going with it.
But a word of advice on belts with a slip buckle. If you eat (and drink) too much and then inhale deeply, the belt may...unslip from the buckle, despite fitting perfectly earlier. I provide this advice from personal experience. (Sunshine and Foodette witnessed this rather mortifying experience and couldn't stop laughing. The belt just popped open after a huge Korean BBQ meal in K-town.)
To match this purdy dress, Sunshine (big spender that he is...wink, wink) purchased this purdy bracelet for me:
It was on sale for only $10! And it matches the dress perfectly!!
