Some Urban Lace

Dress: Urban Outfitters | Shoes: Forever 21 | Belt: Target | Jewelry: Forever 21

I found this dress last weekend while shopping on 2nd Street in Austin. I don't make it into Urban Outfitters very often, so I must say I was a tad bit giddy. To my dismay, I was a slightly disappointed in their store offerings. Why is online so much better? I mean, if you sell something on the www, then please carry it in the store. Don't you know the ladies need to try it on, look in the mirror, twirl around a time or two, take a picture with their smarty phones and possibly bend over to ensure that a full moon doesn't appear during broad daylight? When are these people going to get it? I mean, online is fabulous if you don't actually have a storefront near you, but again...if you are going to sell it online...then sell it in the store. For the LOVE!

Any who, I was pretty pumped that I found this dress on sale for $39.99. I have actually been looking for a lace skirt that has a decent, non-hoochie-fied, hemline, but I still haven't gotten lucky. So, I settled for this lace dress instead. I guess it's really not settling because I think I just might be able to remix it into a skirt. Somehow. Some way. I will get creative.

Sorry, kids, I didn't see it online, but they had a ton left at the store in Austin. So hopefully, if you likey, your store my have a few left too. And did I mention that it came in a few other colors - turquoise, green, yellow and orange? It sure would look snazzy with that Blogger Bubble necklace everyone is wearing!

Let me know if you come across a cute lace skirt. I am looking for one that hits mid thigh or right above the knees. No hoochie. Please and thank you.  

(Isn't it ironic that I ask for no hoochie when my wedges are 6" high? It's all in moderation.)

Cheers to a lacey find.

I was going to buy a lace dress on Macy's website tonight and I changed my mind. Now you're making me rethink buying it!

Mrs C said...

Love that dress!!! I saw some cute lace skirts online at red dress boutique. Not sure how long they are though.

Katie @ My Darling Days said...

I am lovin' your non-hoochie momma lace number with blue accents!! But seriously, how do you walk in 6" heels?? I would totally topple over. :)

TaraMixandMatch said...

Such a cute dress! I love your layered necklaces too!

MissRockwell said...

I desperately need to find a lace dress. To bad the UO isn't open in my area yet; otherwise I'd be making a trip today. BTW, This looks great with the blue wedges.

Shanna - How do you keep your necklaces from getting caught in the lace and ripping? I have a lace shirt that I love but I wore a necklace with it once and now it's got all the pulls in it... very sad.

Jamie said...

I agree with you on the stores carrying things that they have online - it drives me mad!!! I'm not a big online shopper because I have a goofy body shape and I hate paying return shipping for things that don't fit. So it's definitely a bummer when I see something cute online and it's not in store! This dress is adorable - I love the blue with it - makes it pop!!

Montana said...

Those wedges are BEYOND AMAZING!! My shoe collection must have these now!!
Love the dress too!!

I feel the same way about stores and their online offerings. I always have to try on bottoms and I get mad when an online store tempts me with lovely offerings that I can twirl around in.

What a gorgeous dress and those shoessss...I die! You look so pretty and I also hate when stores have online only stuff. So annoying.

Selma @ Crazy Little World Of Mine said...

Awesome buy!!! Love it!!!

And yes, I've had that problem too. Saw something online, didn't see it in the store. Very depressing. I need to try it on and all, and don't shop online because I just don't have the patience and time to send it back and forth if something doesn't fit.

Carly said...

I've been eyeing the SAME dress! It looks great on you!

Annie said...

Love that dress Shanna - the white is so pretty! I have a similar one, or maybe it's the same, who knows, in red from UO - but I KIND of feel like a hooch in it. I wore it on Valentine's Day though, so I justified it's hoochie factor I think :) Anyway, your rant totally made me laugh!
