I'm not very good at staying on top of things. I know I shouldn't get stressed out about online shopping sites, but seriously, they DO stress me out. I can't keep up with their constant sales. I mean who has time to check them every day? Other than two friends that shall remain nameless, that is. Oh and probably countless other people. I will say I signed up to be part of Rue LaLa's site, and after month's of not checking, I noticed they were teaming with the knot, and doing a wedding sale. Note to self: I'm trying to blog about wedding-ish things, so maybe I should pay attention to this type of marketing ploy. Hence I remembered to check it yesterday...evening...after it's shop opened a full 12 hours prior. Oops? Moving on.
Upon my browsing, I noticed that people are hardcore about shopping sales! A lot of things were already sold out, shoot. Not that I'm buying, but if I WAS, I think I'd be overwhelmed/ disappointed! JK, if I was actually trying to make a purchase, I'd prob set all 5 alarms I own (that's a lie, I own two) and throw some cyber elbows to get what I wanted.
After coming back to reality and actually looking at the merchandise, a few shiny objects stuck out. Hello slinky and sparkly. Oh, I meant "shiny object" literally. The Nicole Miller dress also kept me coming back. Also literally, I kept straying from the image and then scrolling back up to look at it again.

Although I respect the idea of the shape-shifting transformer of a dress, I usually cringe when I see their asymmetric hemline. I know, I have a problem. BUT this version didn't seem to make my eyes twitch as much as usual. Actually, I found them quite lovely, especially once I saw the price. The usual $285 Tart Convertible Dress, was (slash/ is if they aren't all sold out yet) on sale for 99 smackers.
Also, I liked this dress, and they way they tied them because I've been looking for something to showcase these bad boys (bad boys = idea for bridesmaids gifts). They are all brought to you by the letter B...as in Bobbie Boutique.

Back to Rue LaLa (kind of). While looking for project images today at my paying job, I found this first inspiration shot. I saved it, because that's how I roll. So when I saw the shoes below, the wheels started turning. So for no particular reason, I decided to make an outfit.

I understand that 9 and 10 stray from the Rue LaLa theme. BUT, 9 is so versatile, headband OR belt.
Now, if I could only afford that dress.
