Get Giddy

Tonight is the season premier of Burn Notice.
It's one of the few shows I still get really excited about, and it's now become a bit of a blog tradition to pay some sort of homage to Fiona Glenanne's style each year.

While she may not wear my ikat dress or sensible wedges, I still put this together with her in mind.

The Rundown
Ikat Dress Gap Outlet
Sandals Ciao Bella Petunia
Bag Thrifted Coach City Bag
Belt Gap
Bracelet and Ring Thrifted
Necklace Belonged to my Grandma
Sunnies Aldo


I also created a look that might be a little more Fi, and decided to choose pieces from JC Penney, just because I was so impressed with their affordable, fashionable offerings. (Why oh why did I not see that scarf print dress in the store?!)

MNG by Mango Scarf Print Dress, $60
a.n.a Nikki Wedge Sandals, $25

I love your look. Sensible wedges are always a good thing, in my book :)

Now I remember you mentioning this show around this time last year, and I still haven't checked it out! I'm not much of a tv watcher, but the show I get excited about is Criminal Minds. Anyway, I love this ikat piece in your growing collection as well :)

Love the inspiration for this! And it's such an awesome outfit - that dress is great.

Thanks for swinging by my blog and saying "hi"! I'm glad I found yours in return - you have such a fun, colorful style! Following, and you've definitely inspired me to try out some new color combos. :)

Ali Hval said...

Aw, an outfit in honor of your show! What a good idea to make an outfit based off that. I really like those wedges. They're almost like flatforms, but not really. And your black and gold bracelet is really perfect and I'd like to take it away from you since I really like gold things.

Have fun watching your show! :D Still watch True Blood? Just saw the first episode of the new season on Sunday. It was shocking, sexual, and gorey as usual, bahaha.

Oh, I love Burn Notice! Josh and I are working our way through old seasons now - we just finished season 3. I do love Fiona's style, but mostly I love her sass and her willingness to blow up anything :)

Juneli said...

Do I see another beautiful Ikat printed dress?? Well, you are officially the Ikat queen now!

Daniela said...

I've never seen that show! I'll have to check it out. Love all your ikat stuff.

(your blog does not appear on my blogroll. I must have added it about 10 times now :( )

I've never seen the show, but I do love a good inspiration! This dress is lovely on you Lydia. It is the perfect fit, shape and color on you. The sandals are cute too!

Simply Sarah said...

Just found your blog through Mini Me Style; so happy I did - I love these colors. Following you now!!! XOXO

I love Burn Notice too. We've watched the first 4 seasons on Netflix this past 2 months. What a fun show.

And I do love Fi :)

Vanessa said...

Ahh! I just wore this dress a couple days ago and was so excited to pull it out again after a long winter. Love your simple accessorizing here!

Lorena said...

I've never heard of the show... then again I am half a world away )
I am all for your accessories, that vintage bracelet is gorgeous.

you really scored at JC Penny. I dont think I've ever seen burn notice. I need a new show. I'll have to see if I can netflix it.

rlutz said...

Burn notice is one of my favorites!! I totally could see Fi wearing this dress!! I wonder what they are going to go with her in jail!!

The Closet Shopper said...

That dress is so great. I love it on you. I've never watched that show. I will give it a go now.

love the dress, and the vintage purse

TaraMixandMatch said...

I love me a good Ikat print, and this one is perfect!

christine said...

Ah! I have the same dress!! I love it! It's still in my summer pile storage though. You just reminded me to take out my summer stuff!

Anne said...

That dress is so cute! Is it recent? I haven't been to a Gap Outlet in a while, but that might be worth the trip. It looks perfect for summer!

Alex Elizabeth said...

Arrrrgh I still haven't caught up on last season! I definitely see Fiona in this outfit-- ikat is summery and the belt is spot-on. Can't say I've ever seen her wear sensible wedges, but I'm sure they'd be easier to fight and blow things up in :)

Terri said...

I love the pose in the first photo--rocked back on your heels!

Nicole Marie said...

I like the plot behind burn notice but I HATE that guys voices! Lol

Melina said...

Obviously I adore that dress, but I probably don't even need to say that! I also went back and looked at your previous post about her style and now I really kind of want a leather hip bag (I cannot bring myself to say I want a 'fanny pack'...). Is that wrong? She looks so fab in hers!

I might need to start watching this show...

monica said...

Mica said...

Love your dress, it's perfect with the brown accessories :)
