Budget Outfit: Stepford Wives

by - Monday, September 16, 2013

It's been raining nonstop these past few days and because of the weather, I'm having a hard time taking picture for my budget outfit posts. Would you believe that when my sister took these photos today before I left our house, it was actually raining hard? Good thing the photos turned out clear enough despite the weather. I've been wanting to write an entry about this dress that I bought from Tomato December last year, and at last I was able to do it!

polka dot dress P475.00 (50% off) - Tomato
color-blocked heels - Folded and Hung
connector ring - Forever 21


Has anyone watched Stepford Wives already? I haven't seen the movie actually. But when I wore this dress for the first time for our college get-together last December, one of my close friends told me that this dress reminds her of that film. I did search for the photos of the movie, and what I noticed was that the characters there were all into pretty printed dresses.


It was one of those sale events of Megamall for Christmas when I saw this dress in one of the racks of Tomato. I was actually hesitating to buy it at first since the size is XS. But fortunately, it can still fit my frame. I love how the dress makes me feel super girly whenever I'm wearing it. I think the last time I used it was a day before Valentine's Day haha! I really like the material and the lining of the dress, and having it for 50% off made my purchase all worth it. 


For today's look, I got my inspiration from the colors present in my Folded and Hung heels. Then I added this blue belt to put more accent to the outfit. As for the other accessories, I used my dainty connector ring from Forever 21 and then this pink plastic headband for more "Stepford Wives" feel.

I was thinking of showcasing a different look by wearing different belt and heels (like what I did in my previous outfit posts). Maybe I'll do it next week then. Anyway, I hope that you've all safely arrived your home and let's all ask for a better weather tomorrow so we won't have trouble going to work. Good night everyone! And always be safe :)
