Dress Up Time!

In honor of Fashion Over Atlanta, Lar and I headed over to Kaleidoscope Boutique tonight to check out their new stuff. Camille, the owner of the store, was there even though she’s nine months pregnant (her due date is next week!). Since the store just got in a bunch of new stuff, Camille asked us to play dress up and try on a few items.

Trying on flirty dresses and military jackets is tough work, but someone’s got to do it. So Lar and I eagerly graciously agreed. And of course we took some pics to share with you all!


Lar ended up getting this leopard print dress because we both loved the draping so much. Isn’t the red dress gorgeous? It’s one size fits all (Camille wore the purple version of that dress to her baby shower) and the jersey is draped perfectly. I think Lar is already counting down the days until her next paycheck so she can buy it.


I’m all about the print and cut of the halter dress on Lar above. It would look great with some nude-colored, strappy heels. The military dress is totally my style. I think I could get away with wearing it at work under a cardi or blazer.


I loved, loved, loved this purple wrap dress. The shinny material had a lot of stretch in it, so it was really comfortable AND the dress has pockets. I can’t tell you how much I love dresses with pockets. I was wearing my Payless booties tonight, but I would probably pair this dress with more ladylike shoes. On the right I’m wearing a military jacket over a really cute, Swedish-looking sweater dress.


I loved this silk Milly dress (left photo), but it was slightly too big for me. It’s hard to see the actual colors of the dress in the photo, but the pattern looks great and not too busy in person. On the right I’m wearing a Tuelle sweater dress/cardi set, which I would totally buy for work and wear with my cream, platform Mary Janes.


I will not spend money and save up for this dress. I will not spend money and save up for this dress. I will not


A close-up of the dress Lar got. Even though the pattern makes it look a little crazy, it’s actually a really versatile piece. She can dress it down with a boyfriend blazer and boots or dress it up with lace black tights and 10-inch McQueen Alien heels – Lady Gaga style FTW!

  1. Bwaa ha ha ha! You’re scaring me with your Alien heels ideas!

    Cath, the navy military style and the navy sweater and sweater dress Tuelle combo look outstanding on you and both could totally go to work. The purple is fabulous! I totally get why you love it.

    It’s cool that Lar got the grey leopard print dress. It’s very fresh. And you’re so right about the white and green dress: killer with nude heels.

  2. Oh man who doesn’t love dresses with pockets. I think my ‘stuff for your girl’ would be all dresses with pockets if I didn’t watch myself. I like that jacket a whole bunch too.

    ps. I totally didn’t know girls said FTW too! haha

  5. It’s crazy how many different colors, prints, and silhouettes you two can wear! I love the animal print, and the military looks best.

    1. I think Kaleidoscope only has it in red, but give them a call and see what the brand is. Camille told me and I completely forgot. I’m guessing it’s available on line somewhere.

    Lauren – if/when you do buy that red drape dress, you MUST do a separate post! πŸ™‚

  17. You ladies always look so beautiful! I love how while you’re twins, you each have a different style. You both manage to look amazing in every post. I love it!

  18. I’m so sad I was swamped with schoolwork this past weekend! I really wanted to visit Camille and my bestie at Kaleidescope but didn’t really get to leave my desk. I love all of those dresses, ahh!!

  19. Okay, seriously, girls? The military details on both of the items you picked from the boutique are major perfect. The military dress really suits Lar’s body perfectly, and the flair waist of the jacket accentuates Cath’s tiny waist.

    You girls, you girls. oiye. So jealous.
