Outfit: Fantastic

DSC_1528.jpg

Glamorous style blogger confession: I wore this dress two days in a row.  On the first, I matched it up with my Little Red Riding Hood tights, cognac flats, and a thick scarf, and I liked the ensemble so much that I wanted to remix it the very next day!  What better addition than this quirky little fox stole?  My mom bought it for herself years ago, wore it a few times, and finally, after lots of pleading, gave it to me.  Can you tell I’m in love?  I can hardly get enough of that sly mug.

The day before I took these pictures (Day 1 of this dress), I had the distinct pleasure of visiting the Galloping Ghost arcade for the first time.  My boyfriend and I met up with some of my friends from work there, and I had such a blast!  I love going to arcades every now and then, but this was my favorite, by far.  There were so many rows of games that it felt like a maze I’d run through in a dream.  Lights and noise and laughter around every corner.

I spent the next day by myself, curled up in my bed with Moxie and running through Majora’s Mask on my DS.  I think the gaming bug gave me a teensy bite, but I’m not complaining.  There’s something to be said for getting lost in another world, at least for a little while.

What about you guys–do you like going to arcades/beercades?  If you’re from Chicago, what’s your favorite one?

    1. Thank you very much! Haha, I’m glad I’m not the only one who gets extra use out of her clothes. It’s saving the environment, right?

  1. The scarf is just everything!! Haha I love it! It makes me smile!
    Also the dress is beautiful – what a simple style but so classy.
    And I also wear the same dress two days in a row sometimes 😛 I don’t even bother styling it differently.
    Much love,
    Mona

    1. Haha, I am so in love with this scarf! Those beady eyes get me every time. And this dress is definitely one of my most-worn items of clothing–pretty much everything goes with it!

  2. There’s a bar in NYC/Philly called barcade that’s always a great time, though I suck at arcade games! Mostly I like sippin on a drink and watching other people play. I’m so guilty of wearing clothes many days in a row, especially when the only people around to judge me are my roommates. Such a lovely color dress, love the scarf!

    1. Haha, I’m really bad at them too, but I keep on playing anyway. I’m really glad to know I’m not the only one who wears her clothes more than once. Definitely makes me feel better!

  3. I love how the dress is so vibrant. It really pops in this photos, and the scarf is adorable! There are several barcades near me, one right in my neighborhood called Button Mash that also serves really yummy Asian-fusion food! I’ve also totally worn a dress twice in a row so you’re not alone!

    1. Button Mash sounds awesome! Most of the beercades I’ve been to just serve overpriced beer haha. And I’m glad to know I’m not the only one who gets a little extra wear out of her clothes!
