The 3 B's of Fall 2014: Big Belts, Bucket Bags, and Bold Prints

dress: thrift $5
Prabal Gurung for Target shoes: Target $10
belt: Target $3
purse:thrift $3
bracelet: Forever 21 $5
Total Cost: $26

Today I'm combining three great fall trends into one look- big belts, bucket bags, and bold prints. I found this dress at a thrift store and immediately loved the print but when I tried it on it just wasn't flattering. The dress had these big drapey sleeves that were totally overwhelming for my small frame. So instead of pitching the dress, I just took off the sleeves and reigned it in with a belt and now it's perfect!

Bucket bags have long been a favorite of mine so I'm very excited they are in style now. I have quite a few vintage ones from the thrift store including this black leather one.

I'm so flattered that Morgan over at Pampers and Pearls picked me as her muse of the week! Check out my feature here!
