30x30 Day7 : Crazy About It and Oh, the Irony!

Day 7:
Sooooooooo I was talking to my sister about the word verifications that a lot of blogs have, and how hard they are for me to read. Also, I was looking at one lovely blog that actually made me to math to prove I wasn't a robot. I failed three times, then gave up commenting.
Next, my sister told me I also had word verification. Whoops!!! I swore I had it turned off! Oh, the irony. So, thank you  to all of you who have taken the time to try to tell the difference between a "3" and an "8" and a "m" and an "n," all for the sake of leaving me a nice comment. I now have turned my word verification off. You're welcome.

In more exciting news, today I'm guest posting at All Things Alisa. I've been given the challenge of creating at look for under $50, and you all know I'm up for that! It's also kind of a cheat day in the 30x30 challenge. This dress isn't part of my 30 {cringe} but I had this post planned ahead of time, so please forgive me! Come check out her cute blog and join the link up party too!


Blazer: Vintage $.99
Dress: 4.5
Belt: Kohl's 1.5
Necklace: Very Jane $6
Tights: Target $8
Shoes: Famous Footwear $15
Grand Total: $36

  1. $36?!?!?! Wow that is like (hang on a second whilst I head to XE.com to convert..) £22.47!!! I have paid more than that for a taxi on some weekends, well done! You look amazing too (as usual) I really like the colour of the dress against the colour of the necklace (which, by the way I am now lusting over, so will be on google later searching 'jade bib necklace' to see if I can find something similar)

    I am off to check out the guest post.

    Have a wonderful Wednesday Ginny.

  4. Loving this outfit! I would've never thought to put a turquoise necklace with red, but it looks great! I think the reason I never wear red because I thought that only black and white go with it. Awesome job on your outfit total too :)

  12. *maybe you are a robot!!* i always get those wrong, too...not a fan!! i am a fan, however, of this red dress on you!

  13. Ginny! Hilarious! Now no more word verify? Oh dang! **You don't know how many times I cringe when I see that thang.** THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU. 9 times out of 10 most don't know they have it on. I used to have a button on my site saying my site wasn't. But then no one was changing it out or turning it off so I decided to stop being a pest about it, too. hahahahaha. Great OOTD for under $40. Did you see mine?

  19. I had mine on for the longest time too and I thought mine was off! It is off...right? o.O

    That red dress is beautiful. I feel it's so versatile. Dresses is something I really want to get into more. I need to do it now while I can still wear boots with them!
