circus (sort-of) sweater dress


Apparently I’m loving stripes this season, seeing as how I just posted my retro colored striped sweater a couple of posts ago! This dress has a similar retro feeling to it. Although, I don’t know why, but it this dress reminds me a circus “big top” when I hold it wide (see below photo). Can you see it?! Is it just me? Well, big top circus or not, I’m feeling very cozy and festive…and just in time for Christmas, which is right around the corner!

Dress: Moth via Anthropologie ($35 marked down from $195) (I don’t still see this dress on their website, but they have other Moth dresses on super sale right now online!)

Necklace: gift

Belt: vintage (gift)

Bracelet: Hermes (gift)

Shoes: Audrey Brooke at DSW ($12 marked down from approx $90)

Tights: Gap (I can’t remember! maybe $8?)


It’s #monthlymani time again! The theme was ‘holiday glitz’ this month! Check out mine and the other ladies’ below! I chose a glitter black nail polish (Haute Tub by Essie) and then a sparkly green and red topcoat by Sinful Colors 🙂

  1. I think the circus big top is the perfect way to describe this lovely dress-in the best way possible! Such awesome retro stripes. And your mani turned out wonderfully!

  2. Okay, first off, your nails are adorable!! I looove the red and green glitter and am suddenly wondering why I don’t have any (I may have to remedy that soon). And secondly, I love your shoes!! They make such a great contrast with that super fun dress and I love that you always find the best deals – you’re a girl after my own heart for sure!! 😉

  3. Yes, yesss, loving this look so much, you’re ready to run of with the circus!! Tthe stripes, skinny belt, purple tights- purple is one of my fav colours, THOSE SHOOOES! And the nail polish is tres festive! ( :
    Ps my fashion TV show is now online. When you get a moment, take a look and let me know what you think. Would be great to have your input:

  4. My wild imagination can even see the circus animals and acrobats under the big top. 😀 way cool dress!! And in case I won’t get to say it until much later, have a great Christmas and happy new year!!
