30x30 Day 12: Shine Bright Like a Diamond

Day 12

I'm not gonna lie, I felt pretty ingenious when I put this tank over this dress. It worked with yesterday's look, so why not today's? It was a "Why haven't I thought of this before moment?" My sister's response: "I'm not sure about that?  Is that a shirt over a dress?"  We'll see what my sweet 7th graders have to say at school today.  Either they will say nothing, which means it's fine with them, or they'll sound a lot like my sister. : )  




Blazer: Vintage $.99 (thrifted)
Tank: Express $20
Dress: Express $30
Belt: Kohls $1.5
Necklace: Charming Charlie's $1
Bracelets: Express $14
Tights: Target $8
Shoes: Fergalicious $30

  7. Very creative!!! I'm planning on layering a sequin tank over a chambray top, will see how that turns out. It's amazing how creative you can be when you are doing the 30 in 30 challenge.

  11. I really like that dress and how you winterized a totally summer dress. Love how you layered it with the sequined tank. Great blzer and wow one buck. I cannot believe how you have 3 items in here for 2 bucks or less. =)

  13. I am watching and taking note, you're teaching me cool new ways to layer things. As I've said before I'm sometimes really bad at layering. You look great, the hint of sparkle is cute :) yey for trying new things.
