Frilly Frocks for a Rainy Day

Hello Dolls! It's an exciting although rainy day today! Why am I so excited you ask? Well, it's because this is my first ever outfit post! Since it's a bit rainy and chilly out today, I couldn't wear anything too summery as I had originally hoped, but still put together this number for a trip downtown to run some errands!

You might remember these Romeo & Juliet Couture skinny jeans from a recent post- On Clearance for $7.50 at Filene's, Spring 2011
Free People Dress- On Clearance for $35 at Von Maur, Fall 2010
Cable & Gauge Cardigan- $25 at TJ Maxx, Spring 2011

I'm also wearing:
BCBGeneration Pumps (from this post)- $79 at Macy's, now $39.50 (Wah-wah), Winter 2011
Swiss Legend White Ceramic Watch- $250 on Overstock, Summer 2009

Eyes- Tarte Eyeshadow in Lilac, Rose, & Pale Pink; Smashbox Limitless Eyeliner in Onyx; Tarte MultiplEYE EyeLash Primer (see review), Lancome Definicils Mascara
Cheeks- M.A.C. Powder Blush in Feeling
Lips- Revlon Colorburst Lip Gloss in Strawberry
All Over- Laura Geller Baked Body Frosting (which I reviewed yesterday)

So what do you think of this outfit? I must admit, I have a new level of respect for my blogger friends who do outfit posts regularly. Not only does it take a while to get the photos ready, but it's also a little nerve-racking putting your style on display for the world to see! :) I definitely intend to do more outfits posts, especially if you all really like this one. I hope you're having a fabulous day and are experiencing better weather than we're having here in Chicago!
