90's Ode

I totally went on a shopping spree. I've been pretty good lately about not blowing money on clothing, until I have these shopping binge attacks and then spend a ridiculous amount of money at one time. This time it was Torrid and Kmart. It all started when my daughter and I met her grandma at the mall for lunch, and then we decided to walk around and browse. I, of course, went to Torrid and they were having BOGO 50% off on regular priced merchandise and a total BOGO on clearance. I walked out with 3 dresses and one shirt. Super irritating though, after I got home I was planning on wearing the shirt to work the next day and noticed the woman left the security tag on, so I now need to make a trip back to get the dang thing removed.

Dress: Torrid. Coat and Earrings: Old Navy. Boots: Target. Necklace: Target.

This outfit is a bit 90's looking to me. I remember it being in style to wear the baby doll dresses and combat boots. Now being a grown ass woman, I can't bring it that far, but here is my ode to the 90's baby doll and combat boot style. I really love this dress though. The coloring is gorgeous. The material is a bit strange, a sort of mesh on the top layer; I'm not complaining about it, it's just a little different is all. I'm happy I found it (actually my daughter found it), but it was the last one in the store. And it's a size too big, although with this sort of style it doesn't really make too much of a difference.

And on a side note, am I the only one super excited that Halloween is getting closer? I don't know maybe I'm weird, but I've always been a huge horror movie and haunted house fan so it only stands to reason that Halloween would be right in there too. I haven't bought our costumes yet, but my daughter and I are going as dia de los muertos.
