Southwestern Belle


{ F21 denim top, ring, necklace & belt; Cotton On dress; shoes }

I love to brag about cheap finds, and this dress is no exception! Five bucks was all it took to make it mine; that is probably the cheapest amount I'v ever spent on a clothing item that wasn't from a thrift store. I usually prefer dresses that are light and flowy, but this one was so different from my norm that I just had to have it!

What do you guys think the color of this dress should be called? I have no idea. To me, it looks like a mix between rust and coral. Corust? Okay, no. Whatever it is, I like it. Trae says this outfit reminds him of the southwest area like Arizona or New Mexico. I'm just going to assume he meant that as a compliment; I mean, who else can wear clothes that represent an entire region of a country? :P


p.s.// I did an interview with! Check it out here! :)


  1. I would call that color faded terra cotta. Or Arizona would be a good name, too!

  2. Just stunning...and $5?! I love it. And I love how you styled it with the denim shirt (i'm having a newfound love affair with the denim shirt this season!). You have fantastic style--those shoes and the jewellery are perfect! Thank you for visiting and commenting on my blog, I'm thrilled to have you.
