StylePantry 's Thoughts:

Yesterday, I was feeling so sick. Ahh… Couldn’t function. I’m feeling better today.

Still in awe, but stoked that I was honored as a STYLE ICON on Chitopia. That’s major. I’m so appreciative. Many thanks to the Chictopia community. This is such a generous compliment and I’m grateful that you all admire my style.

I decided to wear white today not only out of excitement (lol), but because I do wear white after labor day. In fact, I wear it all year round, as I pay no mind to fashion rules. I ordered this dress online 2 years ago. If I had known that it was lined, I wouldn’t have. Not a big fan of lined pieces because it adds extra bulk. But as always, too lazy to return.

After wearing it around today, I may have to take the lining out. My earrings are from Karmaloop. Also a couple of years old. And the one belt I can’t seem to do without, is from Zara. I wear it with everything. Well, almost. I have hubby’s family in town. It’s an early start. Enjoy your weekend, lovies.

LOADS MORE PICS AND CLOSE UP OF EARRINGS ON THE SITE.

Absolutely gorgeous! I love how you bring so much style to your outfits. You wear the clothes, the clothes don't wear you! You also exude beauty and confidence that goes beyond measure! Congratulations on being honored as an upcoming style icon! In my opinion that was a "no brainer" for Chictopia, keep up the great work! I am truly a fan!

that dress is DIVINE!!!! i don't mind having one!!! you styled it well. and the earrings...damn! so unique! i find it quite interesting though that you prefer dresses unlined. i want mine lined...or else i'll get evil stares from the old people here in our country.

Thank you, doll. I got it from softsurroundings.com - they may still have it. Well, the fabric is quite thick, so it really didn't need to be lined. I definitely wouldn't wear a sheer/see through dress by itself :)
