Wonder Woman

17 Jun

{Dress: H&M; Belt: Swap Meet Find; Shoes: Payless; Cuff: H&M}

I was Wonder Woman when I was four years old for Halloween. Editing these photos for this post, I realize I’m more or less reliving that costume today. I originally was going to style this dress totally differently when getting ready this morning, but then spotted the yellow belt in my closet and figured it would be fun to try color blocking with primary colors. Looks like all I needed to complete the outfit was a gold lasso and a crown with a red star on it.

The dress is a recent acquisition from H&M and it’s a few sizes too big. I also kind of hate the color. I really loved the shape of the dress though, especially the hemline, so I picked it up anyway. Glad I did being it’s not something I’d typically pick for myself. It should be a nice challenge to make it work with the rest of my wardrobe over the next 27 days.

    Love the color blocking, and until I saw the hemline, I didn’t like the dress, either:) But I love the hemline. You’re making me rethink not buying things at H+M, stop it!!! haha:)

      I find H&M to be such a huge store that I very rarely see people wearing stuff I’d know was from there. Though thrifting is my #1 preferred means of shopping, stores like H&M and Forever 21 are worth a visit for more trendy items you don’t want to invest too much in. Do they have H&M in Germany?

    I love the outfit – the color and accessories! You’ve got a lot of courage participating in that 30 for 30 challenge!!! I do think this dress will serve you well – it’s kind of like a blank canvas, you know?
    Thanks so much for your comment on my blog, btw. You are right, my neighborhood is your sister neighborhood! Love Williamsburg! So glad you found me! Following you!

    I stumbled upon your blog via http://www.thevagabondqueen.com. I just wanted to let you know I think your bold choice in fashion is great! Wouldn’t have thought to style the dress like that, but it looks fun!

    Believe it or not, I did this EXACT same thing in my first Thirty for 30 outfit! I went with Superwoman, but still crazy small world!
