Weekly Wears: A Touch of Sparkle

Coat: c/o Tulle;  Dress: Dear Creatures c/o Ever+Mi.Crush;  Shirt: Marshall's;  Purse: ModCloth;  Knee Socks: Tabbisocks;  Shoes: c/o Elf;  Starlette Sparkler: gift from Giant Dwarf

You may have noticed this dress sitting in my "mend pile" in my Snapshots post yesterday.  It is such a lovely dress, but I knew I'd get more wear out of it if I just removed the cap sleeves and made it a sleeveless dress.  I have a confession to make: I'm terrified of cap sleeves.  Sometimes a person can say something to you and it sticks with you forever.  This is the case with me + cap sleeves.  Plus, I have too many sheer floaty tops that would look perfect under it.  It had to be done.

In other news, Twitter told me today is the first day of Spring.  I was pretty bummed that the first day of Spring was so chilly (AND WINDY) until I realized that I am totally in love with this coat.  Spring duds under a pretty coat is something I can totally live with... that is, until Spring weather is really here.  I am VERY ready for picnics and park dates!

  10. Ah! Is it because someone told you your shoulders look to wide/manly in caped sleeves? Because that has happened to me, and I rarely wear them now! I think it was a good choice to chop off the sleeves though, so many layered pairing to be had!

    You look perfect, and I am sure that your shoulders are not in any way, large. ;)

  12. I have large shoulders and big upper arms that are on the muscular side so cap sleeves is a no-no for me. But I think you look so great in them! I love the jacket and the star in your hair too!! =)

  17. I love capped sleeves, I think they are really cute part of a shirt. I liked the star in your hair, I think it just makes the whole look cuter.

  18. I so understand the cap sleeve problem. Someone picked on my "fat arms" when I was young and wearing a cap sleeve shirt, and I have seriously never worn one since. Although I'm confident with myself and realize 15 years later that I am not in fact fat, like you said it's one of those things that you never forget. Either way, you are gorgeous and I love this outfit so much!

  21. my boyfriend HATES big poofy sleeves. And I mean HATES them. I am strictly forbidden. But secretly deep down I think they are adorable and I sneak them on sometimes.
    I love your outfits always.

  22. This dress is adorable and I LOVE your shoes so much! I have a thing against cap sleeves too - they aren't just flattering for my arms, I don't think.
