Sheer Madness

I've talked about how much I love all things sheer and/or mesh in the past, and I've also mentioned how hard it can be to find this trend in plus sizes. When I saw this long sleeved mesh dress from Jen's Fashion Plus, I knew I had to have it. I'm not crazy about bubble hems, so I'm thinking a little DIY project might be in order. Speaking of DIY, I cut thumb holes in the sleeves to add a bit of fun detail.

Yesterday was pretty horrible. First, I got the worst haircut e-v-e-r (luckily it's not my real hair), then my DSLR fell and broke. All in all, I'm not feeling too great, and (as you can tell from the photos below) my pictures probably won't be of quality for a while.

  2. Hang in there, Gabi. You still look beautiful, and I'm not the only one to think it. SO SORRY about your camera :( . That is truly awful.

    But I'm really digging your outfit, a little attempted recreation might have to happen on my part... :P .

    Still fabulous, still an inspiration to us all.
    Hope things get better.

  4. Dropping the camera would make me cry! ahh!

    It took me a while to embrace bubble hems, I finally took the plunge this past summer and purchased one. I loved it and got many compliments. I think this looks cute on you but I'm interested to see how you flip it.

    I, too, think that your hair looks fine. The cut kinda makes you look a bit younger, it's sweet actually.

  6. Love it! I like the bubble hem, but like NikStar says, I'm interested to see what you do with it!

    I'm a Canadian living in Korea - lets talk bad hair cuts! Imagine the language barrier...good news is that it's hair, and it always "grows" out.

    Good luck with the camera repairs! <3

  14. Actually I think the bubble hem and the necklace is what's making this look fresh and edgy. If the hem was straight I could have mistaken this photo from 1993.

    I love your blog, even if I'm not the intended audience, you do inspire great ideas and have lots of great looks.

  19. I hate bubble hems. They look cute in theory but end up making me look like I am wearing a diaper. Looks good on you though.

  28. Super cute... a belated comment, but I had this post in the back of my mind when I saw this (http://www.eshakti.com/clothpdpage.asp?catalog=Clothes&cate=blush+hour&productid=CL0018466&pcat=collections), so I immediately ordered it. Different use of mesh, but a kind of similar vibe.

  34. Where does the responsibility of a Abercrombie and Fitch government for the people begin and end?Why are we allowed to purchase cars that have the capacity to exceed the speed limit... surely that can’t be good for our health?We are allowed to Abercrombie over spend…indeed encouraged to do so... so should our credit cards be capped to reflect our earnings?There Abercrombie clothing are many other groups of people who put a strain on the government’s resources.I am not saying that it is ok to be overweight – however abercrombie & fitch if for what ever reason one finds oneself not Abercrombie Hoodies able to wear clothes less than size 16 then it is not our place to judge.

    Gauge how much you can spend or are willing to spend for those items. Create a budget so as not to overshoot your Abercrombie & Fitch Hoodies monthly expenses. Quite often, this is what happens when we fail to realize how much has already been charged Abercrombie Shirts to our credit cards abercrombie Jeans and when the Abercrombie Shorts billing statement arrives Abercrombie Sweaters we have trouble paying for it.
