Thriftanista Style File: Purple HM empire waist dress

This dress is one of my favorites. I bought it last year. The cut and color really work for me. Most empire waist dresses don't hit me right. They're great for accentuating the positive *cough* bewbs and flowing away from the trouble areas. This dress is made of a jersey knit material so it has a lot of give but it also has a zipper making it more structured and holds everything in place. 

I've only worn it one other time. It had sticky goo from the previous owners bewb tape. I wore it anyway. It wasn't that noticeable. This year, I bought Goof Off and went to work. That stuff works. The goo is gone.

Oh and yes that is my bra peeking out. It didn't occur to me until later to adjust the straps to stop this from happening. Duh.
Necklace - bought in Kenya
Empire waist dress - H&M (thrifted)
Gold belt - unknown (thrifted)
Leopard platform sandals - Gianni Bini (eBay)

The rain took over the photo shoot so I moved inside hoping I could get a better shot sans bra. I forgot to set the timer so I got an even better shot.....of my bra. Whatever. Over it. Off to enjoy the evening.

I love this polish. I've been wearing it for 3 days and it's still chip free. The brand does make the difference. It's Green With Envy from  Sally Hansen. I will now have to replace all of my polish with tHard As Nails Xtreme Wear. It's thick and requires a little bit of attention to spread it evenly but so worth it. 

How was your weekend? What'd you do?

LOL about the unintentional bra shot (I have done it, too, because I just didn't notice). At least the lace is pretty. And I love the dress! So now they have stuff to make your dress not slip down? I used to always pin my bra straps to the dress.

Purple is one of my fave colors. I love the peek of the lace bra and the pop of color on your nails.

The dress is amazing!! The color looks great on you. I actually think the peek-a-boo of your bra adds a nice sexy element to the outfit.
