What I Wore Sunday: Designer Dress Edition

So I realized while choosing my post for the month of December for the New Evangelists Monthly that my posting lately has been a bit skewed... three posts were about clothes, one was a quick takes (that also mentioned clothes), one was a wonderful guest post from Mary, one was a compilation of quotations that I didn't actually have to do anything to write... and one was a bunch of pictures about how I see Jesus in a Rihanna song.

So I think maybe my new year's resolution should be to write about something of substance - you know, with actual words - perhaps at least once a month?

Glad I'm starting off on the right foot.

I actually went to Mass at the Saturday vigil, but calling this post "What I Wore Saturday Night Which Is Really Sunday in the Eyes of the Church" was too long.

Más details:
Dress - Elie Tahari designer dress (he was on Project Runway a couple of weeks ago!) originally priced at $200 that I got on clearance at TJMaxx for $10
Black tank - Sonoma from Kohl's (because modest is hottest, of course)
Black tights - Merona from Tarjeta
Black boots - Bare Traps from DSW (and probably the only thing I paid full price for in this ensemble)

I felt it was time to whip out my crazy print dress once again. Because I love it but sometimes feel like it's crazier than me (I know, that means really crazy, right?) so I have to be in the right mood to rock it.

I think the print could be best described as a leopard that fell into vats of red, pink, purple, and orange dye.

Mass details:
I once again sat in the old lady section, although there were some old men there this time, too! Moving up in the world.

The priest gave a great homily on the Epiphany, tying in the gifts the Magi brought to what it said about Christ, and teaching us that if we follow the light (of the star) as the Magi did, we too can encounter Christ!

Be sure to check out everyone else's party attire at Fine Linen and Purple!

Happy Feast of the Epiphany! 


  1. #1: I love old men. Did that come off as creepy? Whoops.

    #2: If they're good boots, soooo worth the investment.
