Checkerboard Chick

Dress and belt, Betsey Johnson.  Shoes, Prada.
Whenever I'm stressed out, I turn to shopping.   Seeing as it's my last week of college and I have quite a few papers begging to be written, you could say that I'm pretty frazzled!  Therefore, this week has been full of in-between-classes shopping trips and late night eBay purchases.

I bought this awesome little dress from Betsey Johnson instead of finishing a PowerPoint presentation, and it was so worth it!  The material is a stretchy thick-knit that simultaneously hugs my curves and holds them in.  The peplum skirt keeps it from looking too skin-tight or showy, and the thick black belt ensures that my waistline isn't lost in the checkerboard print.  

This dress makes me feel like a slightly more 'rockabilly' version of myself.  Whenever I wear it, I act like a rockstar-  I think it's key to have an outfit in your closet that makes you feel like a badass!  

However, I have to admit that my favorite part of this outfit is MY NEW PRADA SHOES!!  I bought them on eBay a few weeks ago and they finally arrived in the mail from Spain the other day.  I haven't taken them off of my feet since!

I'd been drooling over this pair ever since the AW10 collections, and even though they're two seasons old, I feel like they'll never go out of style.  The deep red color will match pretty much everything in my wardrobe and flirty bows are the ultimate detail!  I'm in love.

Now if only these new additions to my closet could write my final papers for me...
