Also inside this post is our very first giveaway! Steady has been kind enough to offer the dress featured in this post to one of our readers, Amelia's post will be Thursday, and her outfit will also be offered in a second, separate giveaway (and yes, you can ABSOLUTELY enter both!)
Meet the Betty Bakes Dress! It's a high-waisted, faux denim wiggle dress with adjustable straps, a sweetheart neckline in the front and a shirred back. Depending on the month, Steady will sometimes surprise us with the items they send, but this month, Amelia + I (and the guys) chose our own. I love the gingham detailing + the little buttons and knew it'd go perfectly with these shoes that have been sitting around my closet unworn for a little too long. Collin + I stopped and picked up some cupcakes on the way to take photos because if Betty Bakes, SHE BAKES (or she has a cupcake shop bake for her... my grandma would be embarrassed, but Collin was entertained).
It only took Collin about five seconds to choose The Flying Dead Western. Besides the name being pretty much awesome, there is this small niche of attractive short sleeve men's western shirts that don't step over the line into looking full-out rodeo, and this falls happily into that category. It doesn't look like he's about to go bull-riding and I consider that a good thing. We loved the red snaps, piping + embroidered sparrows. I told Collin that I felt like we were about to head off to the Jukebox Jamboree to hang out with Cry-Baby and the other drapes.
Our past Steady posts have included everything from a day in an atomic-era neighborhood to a showcase of some of our favorite novelty prints and to make things about 1000x easier for y'all (and for us) you can find it all under our newly created, Steady Clothing label (also seen the left sidebar. ) I own a good few Steady pieces now, but this was my first wiggle dress and I can tell you guys, I usually avoid them like the plague, but it won't be my last.
For all our wonderful readers, Steady offered 10% off until Friday July 25th using promo code 10Peaches but as I mentioned earlier, they're also hosting 2 giveaways on our blog this week! To enter the giveaway for the Betty Bakes Dress, which ends SUNDAY, see the widget below. Like I said above, there will be a second giveaway beginning Thursday for Amelia's outfit, but you can enter both:
