RFF: magenta, polka dots, and a top knot

 


I've finally built up the courage and energy to get back into RFF (really frugal fashion) posts. I have some insecurity about my unwanted left over pregnancy weight, but I've decided to embrace my current shape and realize that it's going to take some time. I'm choosing dresses, skirts, and flowing tops to camouflage the extra curviness. I am LOVING fall brights. I've always been drawn to bright colors, and love the non-traditional idea of wearing bright colors during the cool down months. I snagged this dress at the D.I. near my home. This dress was a plus because it's particularly convenient for nursing. Also, I have an unhealthy addiction to the top knot. As I've been growing my hair out, it's just the easiest yet still sleek style. I guess being a cosmetologist, I should be a bit more creative...
