The "Fruit Week" inspiration for Friday from Megan Mae Daily and Casual Chic Kiki is kiwi, so I decided to wear a little green. This is one of the 10 dresses (yes, I'm exaggerating...a little) I got from Target when the designer dresses went on clearance for $10. I almost returned it because I was feeling guilty for buying so many, but then it was so comfy and different than all the others!
It was quite the challenge changing up the dress though. So I decided to play with the color blocking by adding black accessories. Fair Isle also had some fabulous enamel jewelry from the 1970's. The earrings and the necklace (really a belt) are vintage pieces she owned way back when. And the yellow cuff is something my mom made.
Anyway, I think it is important to appreciate things. I'm sure the blackberries tasted extra special to Princess Sparkles after triking all the way around the house to get just one. I sort of feel the same way about my designer Target dresses. I had to wait to get them on sale, but finding them for $10 (and being able to get 5 for the price of 1) really made them extra special!
