Outfit of the Day: Halloween Dresses from Rosegal

Our next outfit of the day, or outfits of the day, come from Rosegal.com.

Rosegal (and DressLily) have tons of inexpensive options for standard and plus sizes. It is a great place to shop for seasonal outfits, including these cute dresses I found.

First up is this hi-low celestial dress. The front is very short, so I would advise wearing leggings with it. I paired it with a cute vintage-inspired cardi from Amazon. Click on the links to buy.

Both sites run very, VERY small. So, please check the sizing with your body measurements and not what size you usually wear. Example is that both of these dresses I got in a 5xl. I usually wear a 2xl or 3xl, depending on the brand.

This next dress is so adorable, I will be wearing it almost daily until Halloween. The print is just so darn cute! Click on this link to buy. I also paired this one with the same cardi from Amazon, but in a pumpkin color. Belt is from Torrid.

In addition to the small sizing, a lot of the waistlines tend toward a more empire waist, just as an fyi. Both of these dresses fell on my natural waist, so that was also a pleasant surprise.

It takes a couple of weeks for orders to arrive, so I’d go ahead and get your shop on for Halloween now!

Happy Shopping!

Love, Kim

Outfit of the Day: Blue Front-Knot Dress from Walmart

Our next outfit of the day comes from Walmart.

This front-knot style dress and shirts have been spotted everywhere lately! In addition to being on-trend, this dress is a comfy t-shirt dress that can be dressed up and down, depending on the function you are wearing it to.

I also love the color! However, if you don’t like the color, it is available in 12 different colors!

Pick up your own dress here. I paired it with a hat from Target, pentagram necklace from the Ren Faire (buy a similar one here), shades from Five Below and boots from Lane Bryant.

I wore this all summer with sandals and cute straw hats, but as you can see here, I’m getting you ready for Halloween!

Happy Shopping

OK, here we are with our first outfit of the day post-quarantine.

New Dapper Bound: Captain America Stealth Dress

We got to go to our second Dapper Day at Disneyland recently.  We spent a day in the parks and a day at the Dapper Day Expo.  For our parks day, I wore my new Captain America Stealth dress to both parks.

Dress is from Grace Karin on AmazonBelt is from Amazon.  Foam shield from Disneyland park.  Shoes are my DIY saddle shoes, which you can get instructions to make your own here.  For DIY for the star and bars for the dress, click here.

Cap himself said that he had never worn that uniform so well, so he liked it!

Spidey also loved it, and asked if he could “borrow” my shield.

Captain Marvel also loved the look and really liked the idea of comfy saddle shoes!  I also crossed universes and went to Batuu!

Please enjoy the pics and send us pics from your Dapper Day.  We love to hear from you!

Until next time…

InPlainSight.style’s First Couture Meet-Up

The kiddo and I recently hosted our very first (first of many, I hope) couture meet-up at The Federal in North Hollywood.

We had a great time!  I was recently inspired by the Lolita tea houses all over the world where Lolitas can meet up with each other in their favorite looks and hang out, inspire each other, take fun pictures, etc.

I wanted to widen the scope of the invite to include all kinds of geekery, so we put in the invite that there were no dress-code rules; wear whatever you want.  As you can see, we had some great looks sported by some awesome ladies:

Disney’s “Robin Hood” is my favorite Disney movie of all time, so when I saw this dress, I absolutely had to have one!

I paired it with a white cropped tee to give the dress sleeves.

Dressing It Down: Go Ahead and Buy that Fancy Dress!

I get a lot of compliments as well as comments on my clothes, which I love, but one comment that gives me pause is a comment such as, “I wish I had places to wear a dress that fancy.”

OK, so first of all, it is really hard to be truly overdressed somewhere.  Obviously, wearing a prom dress to work or a tuxedo to the grocery store is pretty over-the-top, but what about that great dress you bought to wear to someone’s wedding and is now languishing in the back of your closet (I just love that I got to use “languishing”, #englishmajor)?  Well, use some great basics to dress it down for everyday.

Perfect example is my Haunted Mansion dress.  My lovely boyfriend bought it for me for Dapper Day, and then I stopped wearing it.  I love it, but the top has some ruching on the bodice that is very prom-y, so I stopped wearing it.  Then, time passed and it was our anniversary.  I wanted to wear the dress he bought me out on our date, but I didn’t have time to change after work.  So, challenge accepted!

OK, so first, I needed to dress down the bodice.  I did this with a cotton crop tee from Amazon.  Just enough of the pretty ruching shows through.

Next, here’s my Dapper Day look:

20181103_231057

Obviously, I left off the petticoat, fascinator, pearls and gloves for a great everyday look.

Here are some more pictures of me wearing a Disney Dress Shop dress everyday.  If you decide to take that dress out on the town, then add those dapper touches.

Honestly, dresses are instant outfits.  You literally just throw them over your head, and you have a look.  Now, more than ever, there are amazing choices for nerd bounding that are dress-and-go.

So, challenge yourself to take something that you originally visualized as super dapper or fancy and “dress it down” for everyday wear.

During the Marvel panel in Hall H (which we weren’t willing to sleep on the sidewalk to wait for…), Marvel revealed some details on the Black Widow film and Jane Foster will be The Mighty Thor in the next Thor film!

Then we had to hit the road and bid SDCC good-bye for another year.

Until next time…
