Friday Favorites

I certainly don’t proclaim to be a bargain hunter (and I actually already bought the one shoulder version of this Tibi dress… oopsy!) but these two dresses are made from the exact same fluorescent pink silk fabric.  Though the Tibi version is more intricate, the price tag on the Otte Kay Dress is much, much more reasonable.  If you’ve been lusting after that pink Tibi, I highly recommend snapping up the Otte version, pronto!  (Otte’s amazing signature line also has a ton of other great basics in this color like this silk tee!)

(to see the Otte dress on me, go here.)

Yesterday I somewhat haphazardly (read, hungover) got ready for work and threw this tee (on sale at J.Crew and much brighter in person) on with this necklace.  I fell in love with the color combination.  Something about the turquoise and the neon orange… who would have thought!  (Psst – for more turquoise faves, go here!)

      It’s a must-have… so much brighter in person and has this fun silver zipper up the back!

    I love this color combination! As a University of Florida alum, I’ve played a lot with those two color pallets. Your skills getting ready for work “haphazardly” are impressive 😉

      Oh I can imagine! Go Gators! 😉

    I want one of those bubble necklaces so bad, but I really shouldn’t spend the $ on it. Have you seen any bargain versions of this one? I’m lazy and haven’t looked yet, but after seeing it again I’m thinking I’m starting the hunt finally.

      Get one on Ebay!! Or, BaubleBar has the princesse necklaces, which are much smaller but still pretty awesome!

    I’m so into hot pink lately, it’s not even funny.  Thank you for making me cost-aware!!  And that necklace is fabulous.  I’d pair it with my striped maxi –  it’s red blue and brown.  A color combination that also works, surprisingly.

    • graceatwood says 7.1.12

      Me too, re: hot pink… so obsessed.

    i cant get enough of hot pink – so excited to see that there’s a similar version to tibi’s gorgeous dress!  and that jcrew top is so cute!  i bet it looked even better with the pop of turquoise!

    • graceatwood says 7.2.12

      Thank you, Nuha! I know – I can’t get enough of hot pink, either! xx

    I absolutely  LOVE the neon orange and turquoise color combo – hey in this case, we’ll call it a happy and meant-to-be accident! This is definitely a color combo I think I’m now inspired to try! 🙂

      Def a happy accident! Hope you try it! xo
