Too Bundy or Not Too Bundy? That is the Question . . .

Music Playlist at MixPod.com

When I spontaneously put this concoction  of an outfit together this morning, I wasn't lovin' it.  I didn't hate it.  I just knew that it would either be something that I ended up loving or never wore again.  I just felt too . . . . Bundy in it. 

I decided to forgo nearly all accessories (a rarity for me) because the outfit just felt so LOUD!!!!!

Wanna know a secret?  I bought this dress when I was 16 at Hot Topic.  I have not been inside of one for years.  From the look of the website, it has changed quite a bit.  When I was 16, my mom called this the Freak Store.  It totally was.  Which is naturally what drew me to go in.  The dress is this crushed velvet fabric and really soft.  I have never brought myself to get rid of it and try to find ways to incorporate this teenage piece into my nearly thirty year old wardrobe.  

So, I'm going to do something that I don't normally do on here and ask you all your opinion of this outfit.  What do you think?  Is it too much?  By the way, if you have any question about the content allowed in the comments, please refer to the Comment Policy.  There is a difference between an opinion and an asshole.  I'm just sayin' . . .

  1. To be honest, I probably wouldn't have worn this outfit because I don't like velvet too much. But I think that it's amazing that you can still fit in a dress you bought when you were 16!

  2. Very nice, the leopard shirt is nicely paired :)


  3. LOL oh yes, all to well my pretty . . . .

  4. Thank you Natalie! I appreciate that!

  5. Thank you so much for your honest and nice comment! I appreciate it!

  6. I dont hate the overall look and feel of the outfit - it actually looks like something I've worn myself, but I think the velvet dress needs to go. Sleek pencil skirt would make all the difference, and a pair of heels. The brown round toe flats with the bitty bows say more 'little girl' than 'grown woman'.

    Personally I think crushed velvet seems 'costumey' and since that is your concern, it might be the problem. And as far as holding on to things from high school... I confess to having a few, but I never really feel good in them when I put them on. Even if they fit, even if they dont look worn, just the fact that I wore it in high school is enough of a turn off.
    I say if you want to hang on to it, pack it away, don't keep it in regular rotation.

  7. Thank you for your constructive and honest comment, Lyddie.

  8. Oh my gosh I also used to shop at Hot Topic all the time! I have a green plaid skirt hiding in my closet that probably has cobwebs all over it ha!



  9. I like the individual pieces, and the proportions, but I am not a fan of leopard print with grey. That's just personal preference.

    I loved hot topic when I was younger. My entire middle school closet came from there (I mean like 4-5 outfits, because I had to wear a uniform so I only wore "normal" clothes on weekends). I remember how different that store was back then, and how cool it used to be. Now it's turned into something that's no longer goth or punk. It's very hipster and caters to tweens a lot more.

  10. Love the leopard print! So cute. <3
