Just call me "Chuck"

Ever since I saw Chuck from Pushing Daisies wear a red shirtdress in the Jockey episode, I searched for the perfect one (perfect including affordable, I saw a few in the $200 range. No thanks). And yesterday at work, there it was, in it's perfect red glory. Fit's just right!

Today I went with Twila Jean to Portland for some shopping, and following the tradition of always unintentionally wearing similar outfits when we spend time together, we both had on bright red. People must think we coordinate outfits every morning.

Now I think a cherry pie and Lee Pace will complete the outfit, don't you?

You don't look like a "Chuck" ;)

Bombshell Bettie said...

hehe love it! the sleeves are darling! Not a style you see very often.
You girls look so sassy when you're all color-coordinated ;)

Michelle said...

I love it, beautiful colour & love the matching socks. I've got one in a similar style but in burnt orange.

Oh how adorable I just love that show so much. I just got season two for my birthday. I wish Portland had a pie hole I would eat there all the time. And if Lee pace worked there I would eat there everyday.

I love both your outfits

I love that you and Twila Jean both ended up wearing something so similar--too cute! I really like that shirtwaist dress too; what a great find. :)

Such great photos... you both look stunning.
The effort is admirable.

Rainforest Gardener said...

I love that you have a strong sense of style but don't drop $200 on stuff when there are great alternatives to be found. Photos, dress, makeup, all great.

Love the red! Wore bright red yesterday...it's fun to walk through downtown SF that's literally a sea of people in nothing but black and grey.

It really is a Chuck dress. I am so sad they didn't do another season and that they sped up that last season so quickly in the last episode. It made me feel unsatisfied!!!! haha. You girls are always gorgeous.

I loveeeeeeeeeee it!

Shallow Mallow said...

You both look gorgeous! Great find :)
What kind of telepathic wardrobe link have you girls got going!?

Kitten said...

Gorgeous dress, and how fun that you ladies keep dressing in colour-co-ordinated outfits, lovely!

Love it - but I have to confess I love Lee Pace more. Especially if he came with cherry pie on the side.

Allison Hëll said...

I love this! I wish I could find the perfect shirt dress in black. You two look oh-so cute! Hopefully you stayed dry(ish) when you came to Portland! We've been having "urban flood" warnings here for the last few days.

Autumn Luciano said...

You two are adorable. And yes, very pushing daisies! I love that show, I still can't get over the shock that it got canceled! The house in the background is the perfect touch, looks a lot like the Darling Mermaid Darling's house!

Miss Tami Lee said...

That's super cute! I keep meaning to check out the store you work at, but I really hate going up to the Couv.

And on a side note: mmm pie

Coedith said...

That house has always been a favorite, of course more so when it was pinker.

SomeoneLikeYou said...

You are always such a gorgeous breath of fresh air!

Dakota C. Walsh said...

Gorgeous!! I need to watch that show on netflix sometime... I've only heard good things about it, and Chuck is just too adorable.
I am so envious of Twila Jean's hair, too... rolls and bangs like that take talent!

Anonymous said...

You look stunning in red! Also I loved Pushing Daisies! I hate that it got caned! I mean, tell me how its possible that a show like My Name is Erl is still going but PD isn't?

anna d said...

i adore pushing daisies! and your vintage fashion!

Portland Ninkasi said...

Oh, you both look darling, and the house bears a resemblance to Lily and Vivian's house! What cheese would one bake into the crust of a cherry pie?

Hanna said...

Such a dreamy dress! I love the colour, makes the greyish weather at home much more colourful :)

Colleen said...

the red is all a part of the collective subconscience...i've been wearing a lot of red lately too!

Adorable! Red suits you well. Very Chuck, indeed!

Penny Dreadful said...

Aw, how cute are you two! Pairing it with red socks is a great idea, I need to get some coloured socks to try something similar myself now.

Deoma's Boutique said...

Love the red and it looks fabulous on you! That's the cutest house!

2 Women in red! Gorgeous!

LOVE that dress, that is my favorite style of dress, so cute and flattering. Chuck had the BEST dresses on that show.
You and Twila look great, such pretty girls you both are!
