Sometimes All You Need Is A Little Chili's

Today I’m feeling better than yesterday. I made a conscious effort to pick up my mood. I decided to treat us to take out from Chili’s. It kinda worked on pushing both our moods upwards. For some reason the Quesadilla Explosion Salad was super and I ate every last bite, my hubby ate all of his too (which isn’t out of the ordinary really, but for me it was J) I felt better right away, maybe my blood sugar was low, like all day…
dress: ELLE via Kohl's; sweater: Element (gift); socks: UO; boots: Steve Madden (Nettle); Earrings: H&M
On to more interesting things like THIS DRESS!!!! I am in love and it’s navy calico from Kohl’s. I had a coupon and a gift card so on my trip home from work last Friday I stopped into Kohl’s. I had 2 things I wanted – a dress with a print and/or a top that I like. (I’m having such a hard time finding a good fit in tops lately so I’ve been looking everywhere I go. Evey thing is just so expensive.) No tops, but dresses – oh heck yes! I wasn’t planning on finding so many, but I did. I had on a pretty grey print before I tried on this baby and I really dug it. But what sold me on this one (I had to chose – $41.99 is a lot of moolah for me to spend on a dress, spending it twice wasn’t going to work. I had to decide on one L) was when I put it on, I breathed out “oh” a happy surprise. This was the perfect dress *big smile*. I just know every time I wear it, I’m going to be happy. It’s such a neat style, very 70s through the skirt, but with 80s lace on the top.
My girlfriend and I went to BCBG in Brentwood. The girl in the shop was helping my friend when she diverted herself from her bee line to the dressing room to tell me she liked my style. Well shucks! That made my day!!!! So I skipped around the rest of the “over my budget” racks with a smile.
I think I want one of their Bandage skirts. I love the fabric and the fit. I’m going to be trolling ebay for a deal. I won’t pay reg. price of $148. Kinda nuts. BCBG is one of my favorite designers, it fits me and I love the designs. I hope to have a fabulous shin dig that I have to buy a new fancy dress for soon. A girl can dream right?
Happy Wednesday!
I’m off to catch up on my blog reading and commenting (which I've been terrible at this week.)

The dress looks so good on you. I rally like the back detailing on it. I like BCBG too. I can't ever seem to afford it though. I found a great pair of their pumps at the thrift store once. They lasted a long time.

The first time I was with a friend who ordered the quesadilla explosion salad at Chilis, the friend told the waitress, "i'll have the quesadilla KA-POW (insert explosion noise)" for some reason we thought it most hilarious at the time.
I love the dress, especially the lace insert in the back.

The print on your dress is cute. And I like the socks peeking out of your boots. XOXO

Love the boots and stockings with your dress!

PS - When you go to look for fedoras at Titantic, be sure and go up stairs. You can get a better idea of selection that way.
