Houndstooth dress with heart cutout

I have never been to Longhorn Steakhouse but a coworker told me about it, and it sounded like Texas Roadhouse. I loveee Texas Roadhouse but there isn't one easy to get to in Chicago by public transit, so, we don't get to go. It was pretty comparable, but I love Texas Roadhouse's rolls, and I miss having the peanuts to munch on at the table. My steak was cooked perfectly, and considering I like my steak cooked well done, that rarely happens the first time around (it either ends up undercooked or burnt).

We spent the rest of the day checking out this large mall and other stores near Longhorn. The mall had a Hot Topic. I used to buy (or want to buy) something every time I went to Hot Topic; however, in the last ten years my style has changed so much that most of the clothing/accesories they carry no longer match my style. Regardless, I still like popping into to see what they have. Yesterday I found this Houndstooth Heart Dress on clearance for $28. I love cutesy touches in clothes, like the heart cutout on this dress, so, I bought it; perfect timing for Valentine's Day. I think I'm going to wear some tulle under it for some added volume.

  1. Hey PFK! Thanks for dropping by at my Tiny Hands blog!
    Your fashion sense is soooo lovely, I adore these dresses (and the ones below) that you picked out! I've never heard of Shabby Apple before but I know I'm going to have to use some of their pretty clothes for my Polyvore boards. :) Thanks!

  2. A couple of years ago, I was in charge of putting together my department's holiday "Gift Guide" for our website (, which meant creating lists of suggestions for DVDs to buy for various types of friends and relatives (i.e., "Golfers," "Bookworms," "Sports Fans," etc.). I got the most praise by FAR for coming up with the category of "Hot Topic Goths," for which I suggested movies like the Nightmare Before Christmas, Edward Scissor Hands, a My Chemical Romance DVD, and an instructional video about applying clown makeup.

    Course, you can't come up with this kind of stuff without knowing at least SOMETHING about the subject matter. Don't even ask where the green tutu and pleather boots I wore in high school came from... ;)

  3. If you'd ever consider selling this dress please let me know. I've been trying to hunt one down :(

    1. Eve, I would consider selling it but don't know if mine would be the right size for you. Mine is a size large. Here it is on me to get a better idea:


Let me know you are out there.
