Good ol' tried and true. You can't go wrong wearing a dress - I last wore my lettuce dress here.
The original outfit was my green puffy skirt and a t-shirt (almost this same outfit), but I was just not liking the skirt at all, so it is going into the consignment bag.
Dress (Taylor, consignment), shoes (Wild Diva, swap from Caro).
I got the jumpsuit at my favourite consignment store last weekend for $22, along with the belt ($10) and earrings ($7). I had credit so I didn't actually pay anything. I was leery at first of the jumpsuit as I used to have one in the 80s (click here if you dare, to see me in it - that's my dad, and I'm about 21 years old there, circa 1988).
However, I really liked how this one fit: nice drapey fabric (that didn't wrinkle), neutral colour and not too bulky. I was pretty challenged taking these pictures, though - I'm just not used to wearing flowy pants!
The back: The elastic at the waist was set a little high, so this was a tad crotch-tacular all night, and needed frequent adjusting.
Outside:I dyed my hair last night as well. I love the red shoes and belt with this!
The stuff: The belt is Le Chateau, and based on the fact that it's leather (most of their belts aren't these days) and the design of the buckle, I'd say this is a late 80s/early 90s belt. I like that it's slightly curved so that it sits well on the waist.
These shoes were very comfy to wear all night...except for when we tried walking home 3 km from the party around 1:30 am. Bad idea. My feet are just killing me today. I recall that I walked barefoot for at least 1 km. The sidewalks hurt, but the grass was cool and wet.
A better shot of the accessories: Annie gave me the cuff for free! I love the coppery colour and that the skull has red jewel accents. People commented on the feather earrings all night - they felt like soft little kitten paws on my neck.
I got a lot of compliments on the outfit at the party. My gal Vero said that this was her very favourite party outfit I've ever worn! Wow! Thanks, hon!
Hope you had a great weekend!
