{Fashion & Faith Thursdays} What I wore

Hat, Dress, Necklace: Forever21, Shoes: DWDS
 I wanted to do a separate post for what I wore for Open Mic Night.
Then I found out about Fashion & Faith has started a link up that I wanted to join. So it ended up being perfect timing! As soon as I saw this dress I fell in love! Even though I recently bought another high-low polka dot dress, I couldn't pass this one up. The fit is so flattering as well as the length. I love the pleats in front too,  it definitely sets it apart from similar dresses  that I have seen. 
The necklace I bought last year. I really wanted a vintage looking stopwatch necklace. I lucked out and found one in a Forever21 in Michigan when I was passing through. 
The hat well I love HATS! I've always worn some kind of hat back in the day. So I thought what the heck! Let's get back to my roots. So I found this super cute fedora hat in the clearance bin for like $6. I couldn't pass it up! P.S shout out to my sister in law for giving me a be-lated birthday gift card that made this outfit happen!

Confession time: I only recently got interested in shoes. Shoes were never really my thing. I hate sneakers/tennis shoes. I always hated how you could have an awesome outfit and tennis shoes just ruin the entire thing. Or maybe I just had ugly shoes growing up, I don't know. All I know is, I maybe had a couple pairs of shoes in my closet my entire life/marriage then 2010/2011 came and I doubled that! Sandals, boots, booties, heels galore.. buying shoes was probably how I got through the hubby's deployment. {hmmm contemplating that thought} I haven't bought a single pair of shoes {besides Snow Boots} since then. So, I really wanted some new shoes, that weren't falling apart. I had never bought from DWDS before. I heard about them from someone but was kind of scared to try. You never know the quality of a discount shoe right? But they turned out so great, and comfortable! YAY!
