Dee-lightful!

These photos are a few days old, I'll admit: I have no idea what day they were taken, that my memory completely fails me speaks volumes of my stress level and my exhaustion level over the past few days. Ahh, to think back to a sunnier, pinker time! April is always a crazy month at the College where I work. A lot of late nights and weekend shifts in the admissions office. I think I wore this outfit this past weekend to a student function?!



Dress: Delightful Dozen swap from Mel
Sweater: old Express hand-me-down from class-mate
Belt: Savers ($3)
Tights: TjMaxx ($4)
Shoes: old UO ($30 ?)
Necklace: Dolly and Boy

Photos: Chris
Another thing to admit: I've been holding this Forever 21 dress of Mel's hostage for about a month and a half. It's been hanging fully styled on my wall, I think I was just waiting for the perfect spring day to break it out. Though, I was relieved to ship it off to the next Delightful girl, clearly I'm bad at getting myself down to the post office. Sorry Mel! You can scroll down to check out how Mel herself and Kristen from LeProust Vintage styled the dress. Also, thank you to my very handsome and stylist photographer, Chris. Sometomes it's nice to have someone else take the photos!

(yowza!)
Below: Mel, Kristen, and I:

Don't forget, you can follow the Delightful Dozen on Facebook and now you can follow Orchid Grey on FB too!

Have a great night!

I really like the addition of the dark tights. I think it grounds the dress. Great things.

awww i actually have this exact dress and I've only worn it once (about a year ago). I haven't touched it since, but after seeing how the three of you have worn it I'm tempted to take it out of my closet. :)

by the way, your hair is looking gorgeous as usual.

This outfit is so fun and bright! I like how you paired it with the oxfords - very cute.

I love the way you styled the dress. It's perfect for those days when it "looks" nice out side but it is still chilly. I love it!

This outfit is just gorgeous, and has reminded me once again of my need for a berry colored cardi!

I'm the worst about going to the post office. I have a bunch of thank you notes that have been sitting on my desk for why to long now, just waiting to go out. Ay!

I'm in the same boat! I'm holding like seriously.. 4 or 5 things hostage right now for the DD! Haha! You look amazing in this dress! My college has been pretty crazy for the last month (even for faculty) so I know what you're going through! But art colleges are such a fun atmosphere!

MOUSEVOX VINTAGE said...

Pink never looked so pretty. xo.

megannielsen said...

That dress looks gorgeous on you!!

Kyla said...

I love how you pulled the darker shades out in this. It's such a pretty floral!

Clare said...

This is really lovely. It seems different than a lot of your stuff (i.e. I don't see you wearing bright pink a lot) but it still conveys your style beautifully. I love it!

Caroline said...

What a fabulous color. I love this Delightful Dozen stuff you guys do. I think I like your styling the best of this dress. I love belts over cardigans like that. So pretty!

Emily D. said...

Love this look. The colors are fabulous on you and, as usual, your hair is fantastic.

rinacatastrophe said...

I think I like the way you styled it the best. although instead of the opaque, burgundy tights, I'd go with something patterned and sheer, maybe light pink polka-dots or something like that. So spring!
