Ella Moss Dress via Plato's Closet, $16 (similar by Ella Moss)
Gifted Scarf (similar)
JC Penney Boots, $50 (similar)

There used to be Fazoli's near where I grew up that I have fond memories of.  It was reasonably priced, the food was awesome, and they gave you as many bread sticks as you wanted.  I also went there with my friends one year before prom (wearing formal dresses to a fast casual restaurant is super fun).  So when we discovered a Fazoli's in Lansing, I gotta say, I was excited to give it a try.

Over the weekend, we did just that.  And I must say..I was disappointed.  Prices have gone up (a lot), and the food was just "meh".  However, the bread sticks are still amazing. :-)  Oh well...  what Fazoli's once was shall live on in my memory.

In style-related news, I really want to mix things up here and am trying to thing of a good outfit challenge besides the 30 x 30.  I am totally stuck.  Ideas?

  1. Sorry to hear that the place was a little disappointing, but it's always fun to visit old childhood places. I love this navy dress - great thrifting find, I love Plato's Closet for that reason! And those boots are still darling. An outfit challenge? The 30x30 is always great, and I certainty wouldn't recommended the 6 Item Challenge... What about remixing one closet staple for the work week - so 5 different outfits?

    1. Thanks Callie! That's a good idea, I'll have to give it some thought...

  2. My husband's first job in high school was at Fazoli's! It seems like a lot of them have closed (in our area at least), but they appear to be more common in Indiana and Kentucky. We stopped at one on the way to TN last May and were also disappointed. They've changed the food quite a bit!

    1. Most of them have closed around here too, the one we went to is the first one I've seen in a long time! So disappointing. :-(

  3. The only place I've been to a Fazoli's is in Denver. I went one time when we went for CACS competition. It was expensive, this has been in the last 5-6 yrs.

    I love your outfit.

    1. Thanks! I haven't been to one in at least 6 years. I wonder if that's about when they changed it!

  4. I absolutely love this outfit! that dress looks amazing on you. And I felt the same way about fazoli's. It was the best when I was younger but now it just really isn't all that great.
