Oh Shit! It's That Ugly Dress Your Mom Bought

We all have one. The ugly/old/unflattering dress/top/sweater that your mom/aunt/grandma gave you... And now she wants you to wear it to assorted family functions and gatherings, as she doesn't want you to be "following behind me like a ragamuffin" (as per my mother.)

Gap dress.

The dress is unflattering, to say the least. But I will be the first to admit that my ugly dress is definitely not the worst around. So when life gives you lemons, make lemonade. Or in this case, a cute outfit.

 Gap dress, American Apparel belt, Zara jacket, Forever 21 ring, Guess earrings, B2 silver flats (not pictured).

I think I did pretty well. My cousin did tell me I looked like a Barbie but for once, I'm gonna take that as compliment (partly because I'm able to reassure myself that she must be delusional - because I am very far from plastic.)

  4. LOL, the dress doesn't look bad at all (as it is). But when you added that belt, you totally took it to another level! Great call adding the biker jacket to tone the "barbie-ness" :)
