Red + Lace

This weekend I went car shopping.
I would honestly say that shopping ranks pretty high on my list of favorite things to do.
Yet, while at one of the dealerships, another shopper came over to me and said, "Are you okay? You look miserable."
And that pretty much sums it up.

Other than that, I did no shopping, but now I would really like to buy everything I mentioned on my wishlist, just to make myself feel a little better.

I have loved this top since you first wrote about the alteration. Car shopping can be a discouraging process. Did you buy?

I love the button detailing on your shirt.

Car shopping is definitely not as much fun as shoe shopping but it's one of the 'joys' of being an adult!

PS: Hope you find something you love soon, and the process isn't too stressful!

Good luck on the car search! In the meantime, that lace top would put me in a better mood!

That top was such a great find. You did a great job, it looks so good on you! The little buttons on the back give the whole piece such a sofisticated look! xx

Hahaha, I remember when my mom got her car i was 10. It was the most miserable experience. I was soooo bored, I just had to sit in the dealership all day, and deal with the bounties of annoying car salesmen. Plus I didn't even get to test drive anything. Haha, this blouse is lovely. I've been wanting a pair of red jeans as well. Good luck on your car search!

You look great! I love your lace top! Great photos. Maybe we can follow? Kisses and waiting for new outfit!

Annie said...

Love this outfit! That lacy top is SO pretty - and looks great with the red pants and gold jewelry. Even though I love shopping as well, I feel like car shopping definitely isn't as fun!

Car shopping is one of those miserable adult life experiences that I'd rather not do again for a LONG time.
I love the cream lace top - it's so intricate. Pretty with the red.

Yeah, car shopping can be really stressful since its such a big investment. Sorry you had a hard time. I really love this outfit though. The bright red pants are fabulous and I love the mix of feminine lace with rough black booties!

B'aww you poor thing! I'm sorry that car shopping was miserable for you. I can see why it would be with prices and gas milage and figuring out all that "fun" stuff. Ha. Fun. I hope you at least scratched the surface on what you're looking at buying!

You should totally treat yourself to an ice cream + online shopping date, yep. Especially after dedicating your weekend to such a perilous task.

That lace shirt is too too pretty. I just love the sleeve length and the scallpooping~ omg scallpooping. I totally am not even gonna correct that. That scallpooping is just. Perf.

Robyn said...

Love this combo. Very chic!

Car shopping can be a task. I usually wear how I'm feeling on my face. HaHa If I'm tired or frustrated it shows. You'll find something. Great lace top!

Amber said...

your dainty lace blouse is lovely. Car shopping is awful. Its almost as bad as house hunting.

Franca said...

I don't like cars, so i can only imagine how much i would hate car shopping!

Love your blouse!

Kavery said...

Love the soft, creamy lace. Car shopping is stressful unless you know the right questions to ask, which I don't. Hope it works out for you

Daniela said...

I laughed out loud at this. Car shopping must be the WORST thing EVER do . I hate it. I spent 4 hours negotiating to get the car I have now, left after they made the deal then cancelled, and went back after they called me begging me to go back and finalize.
I hope you scored a good deal!

The Closet Shopper said...

I almost bought a lace top this weekend at a flea market. I thought they were asking too much and they wouldn't haggle with me so I walked away from it. I'm really regretting it now.

You look so cute.

Kristin said...

That blouse is beautiful. I'm adding lace and colored denim to my to-do list.

Shea said...

Shopping, I like. Car shopping, not so much. It pretty much makes me feel like an idiot every time, and I think I give out "I know nothing about cars" vibes. But, at least you LOOK fantastic!

Cee said...

I've never owned a car, so carshopping isn't really something I have experience with... But it sounds like you had a pretty awful experience this time around, and what a shame :( Hopefully you can scratch a few items off your wishlist to cheer yourself up! But if not, you are looking stunning in this lace and red combination. I have a serious lace obsession and your blouse has me swooning!
xox,
Cee

Megan, The Frugalista Diaries said...

gorgeous, I love this.

Eli said...

car shopping is just unsettling. It just feels WEIRD to spend so much money at once! Hope you find your car soon!

Alex Elizabeth said...

Still a favorite top :) Did you find any potential cars?

E said...

I HATE car shopping! It's so stressful!. On a more positive note, your lace top is lovely!

Bre said...

I rank car shopping worse than bra and jean shopping together. It's the worst! Did you find anything?
Your top is very sweet but the red bottoms give it a rocker's edge.

Lorena said...

I dream of SOMEDAY having a car gifted to me.
(well my first car was a gift - but it doesnt count as it was a Toyota Starlet 1980) -
My last car was a nightmare DO NOT EVER get a VW beetle.
I'm sure you'll find something you like :)
Gotta look around.
