Curious Clothes Edition

The title of today's blog post is pretty self-explanitory, but in case you missed out I'm gonna be showing cute clothes that I find on the internet. Today I'll be focusing on becuase that's what I'm browsing currently. I'm on the petite side of things with an average build so I'm gonna be looking at things that flatter my body type and maybe a few I wish looked good on me. I'm also studying to be a teacher, so a lot of the less formal dresses I pick out keeping in mind I might want to wear them to work some day. So even though I want to teach yound kids, I still want to be the hott teacher, but I digress...

On with the show!

This one's named after the first-lady and I really like structure styled dresses for a work look. I also think they accentuate the curves I have well.

I like how this is a taylored jacket so it would be flattering and functional, but my favorite feature is the hood. Hoods are a must have for me.

I'm rather pale so color plays a large role in the clothing I select. These colors are muted, but I think I just might be able to pull them off. I'd love to wear something like this to work, but I think the skirt would have to be longer for that and I'd have to wear tights.

I just love the shape of this dress. The color would have to be closer to charcoal for me to wear it in gray, though. However...

My absolute favorite part of this dress is the back.

I love lace. This dress is so pretty and the scalloping at the top almost gives it a sweatheart neckline look. For some reason this dress makes me think of hosting a dinner for my friends.

Keeping in mind that fitted satin and rouching are not always your friend [or at least not mine] I can't help but adore this dress. If I had the body to wear it I would in a heartbeat!

This dress looks like chiffon, but aparently it's linen. Who cares, right? It's totally elegant and the perfect color for me. Once again this is a dress that only gets better when you check out the back...

Snazzy, huh?

I'm really into this sleeveless overlay on strapless dresses right now. I'm not sure how I feel about the pleats, though.

One again, the back of the dress is precious.

I love all of these fabrics and patterns and colors together. Once again there's that sleeveless overlay. It's just perfectly adorable.

This dress is so sweet! I guess you would wear it to something like a semi-formal dance/event.

This little beauty is basically in the same style as my Senior Prom dress. Strapless, brocade, and a light under layer of tulle. I love it! It's the perfect color to compliment my skin tone.

I REALLY like this pocketwatch necklace. I have a necklace locket that I picked up in Paris a few years ago and I love wearing it. This one is so pretty and it's functional jewelry!

I just thought this was a really cute necklace. It's also really affordable at only $15.

Ah! This belt is precious!

This is pretty much everything I could want in a fun laptop bag!

The great thing is about all these dresses is that most of them are under $100 and let's face it, cost is a big issue for most of us. I like the idea of being able to dress in cute, trendy clothes without breaking the bank. [Fortunately for me, it's my parents' bank right now!] But being a college student I always have to be aware of how little money I have of my own. I know it's gonna continue to be like that for me until I've been working a real job for a while.

Anyway... I'll probably be updating this a few times because I always have an eye open for cute clothes, but that's all for now!
