OOTD: Orange Sporange

1:47:00 PM

Fun facts: The only word in the 20-volume historical Oxford English Dictionary that rhymes with orange is sporange, a very rare alternative form of sporangium (a botanical term for a part of a fern or similar plant)
I was thinking of a name for this blog post and had asked my husband if there are any words that rhymes with Orange..he said good luck, there are none. Ha! he's wrong!




Dress:Cardigan:Glasses: HM Belt: F21 Boots: Steve Madden

Although I did not get today off from work, I did find some pretty sweet deals at the mall over Columbus Day weekend sale. I bought this pretty orange dress for about $12 and F21 belt for just $3! The color of the dress is simply perfect for Fall weather. I love layering two scarves together when it's chilly in the morning.

How often do you shop? I think my friends and even co-workers have the idea that I shop a lot. In fact I only shop when there is a really good sale! I don't like to spend a lot of money on clothes since styles changes and it's not really where you buy your clothes but what you buy. I can wear this dress in the summer time without the cardigan and pair it with nice sandals. Overall this $12 dress is a good investment in my opinion:) I rather spend my money on food, Kaylee or a good designer classic purse that will last forever.  What about you?

  2. hehe... I learn something new from your blog today -- the word sporange! It's great how affordable clothes and accessories put together could give such a great outfit.

    My friends and co-workers especially think I shop a lot too but it's also not the case. I only buy clothes in periods and would be of larger volume and hence I seem to have lots of clothes. I buy a mixture and in varying price range too. My boss would even know when an outfit of mine is new and would comment. lol... He didn't do it in a negative way so no worries on that.

  4. Beautiful fall look. Love that color for this time of year.

    I don't do a lot of shopping (although my hubby may disagree) and I always buy things on sale. I don't like paying full-price, even if I am in love with the item.

    Like you, I'd rather spend my money on my baby!

  5. What a great steal. I love to shop but I'm with you when it comes to buying clothes I'd rather spend it on Asa then anything and save it for something I truely need. Since right now opening my store every penny has been going towards that. But I love thrifting you can find so many things at affordable prices. Love the orange on you and never heard of sporange before.

  6. I think people who read our style blogs must think we shop a lot. There are almost always new things popping up. I do think I spend more now than I used to, so compared to back then yup, I do shop a lot. But compared to other bloggers, it doesn't seem like I spend all that much. It's all relative :) I do know that I have no problem spending lots of $ on something I REALLY LOVE. It can be anything really, from clothes to bags to electronics, etc. Though I do try to keep those purchases to a minimum.

  26. Hi Yvonne, you look fab in orange! And like you, I too love a good bargain. I think looking good doesn't always have to break the bank, you just need to have a good eye and know how to put things together - and you definitely do! :) Thanks for sharing, and have a lovely weekend with your sweet family!
