faux fur fluffs and empire records...

Growing up in the 80s/90s I am loving that some of the trends from my childhood are coming back...and some I am wishing didn't pop back up...like the damn scrunchie...ugh.  So one of the trends I'm loving back in my closet are cropped sweaters.  So obvi I'm not rockin' a crop top anytime soon because my summer body is hibernating, but the best thing about a crop sweater is that it's meant to be layered and you all know how I feel about layering.  

And what am I layering it over?  Well this super adorbs shimmer dress duh!  Now when we got this dress in at my boutique the first thing I thought was, I literally owned this dress in high school, which totally made me need it like the second I unpacked it from the box.  I love that the shimmer is subtle so I can wear it during the day and not feel like I'm at homecoming freshman year.  And because it's a skinny strap dress, and my arms are the size of a very large christmas turkey legs, the logical thing to wear is with is a cropped sweater.  

And the second I put this look together I instantly felt like a modern day Gina from Empire Records, minus the sleeping with middle aged rock stars in the break room...and if you have no clue what I'm talking about then just stopped reading now and never come to my blog again.  This outfit was just made for Rex Manning Day!!

And to give this look a Melis twist, I paired it with these amazing faux fur fluff socks that one of my oldest and bestest friends gave me.  Are these not the coolest socks you have ever seen...like for real, obsessed...and sooooo me!  Literally this outfit is perfect, so I'm off to damn the man and save the empire!!
