Tues, May 5/09 - Son of Dress Week - Tropical Floral

I have been determined to dress like the weather is warm...even if it's not. The result is that I've been freezing in my office while the air conditioning blows coldly on me. But darn it! I want it to be warm!

Note that I am gamely going bare-legged all week:
I've forgotten who suggested a flower at the waist, but I know it wasn't an original idea. But how cute is that? I really liked this outfit and got a few compliments on it. I always feel great when I wear yellow.

The stuff:
I love those shoes. Time to break out the "tropical" jewelry - I don't know why, but hammered metal feels tropical to me - maybe I'm having an association with those metal drums?

Dress (Mac & Jac), shrug (Debut), belt (Plum), flower (Roberta's Hats), cuff (Oscar & Libby's), earrings.

  1. Love the flower on your hip. I may have to try that on Saturday. We are going out for dinner. I'm trying to decide who I want to be. Rocker Chic, feminine and cute, Sexy, or cowgirl chic. Hmm, so many decisions. I live in a really casual vacation type area so most people don't dress up at all when they go out. I almost always dress up though, it's the only time I can dress fun and sexy.

  2. This was one of my favourite outfits. I just feel great in yellow.

    Ooh, such fun to get dressed up. I like being more dressed up than other people. It makes me feel special. You need to post your outfit! I checked out your blog and you haven't posted in ages.

  3. I know I haven't posted in a long time. Just wasn't feeling it. I've been fighting a lot of fatigue lately and our busy season has begun at work so I don't always have time. I did take a picture a couple of days ago that I need to post, even though I changed again before I headed off to work... I'm hoping to get some outfits worked out today and tomorrow so hopefully, I'll have a bunch to take pictures of.
