Wed, Apr 29/09 - Strappy and Stripey

I'm baaaaaaack!

Okay, the first of the catch-up posts! I'm dating each of these in the title, along with their usual titles.

This is the grey wool pinstripe bubble-hemmed strapless (whew, that's a lot of adjectives) dress that I picked up for around $40 on consignment a few weeks back:
And did I mention it has pockets? What's not to love? Put it with a striped blouse, funky tights (darned spring has still not fully arrived) and a modern shoe...and I like it!

The stuff:
Grandma J's necklace - that's Anne Klein, probably from the late 70s/early 80s.

Dress (Club Monaco, consignment), blouse (Vero Moda), tights (Hue), belt (Nygaard), shoes (JLo), necklace (Grandma J, vintage).


  1. very cute. I really like the strapless dress over the button down shirt. That would be the only way I could do strapless. I need to wear a bra and I haven't been able to find a strapless that would fit me.

  2. Thanks! I'll probably wear it with a cardigan or jacket over it as well. It's not really the right fabric (a thick wool) to wear as an actual strapless, strangely.

    I am impressed that you commented on all the posts! Thank you!

  3. ow, ow! My other fave shoes. i like this look on you. i want to try the strapless over button down, i don't think i've got the boob power to do it tho. lol

  4. Yeah, I like this look too - hah, yes, you do need to have a strapless that's a snug fit (either from you or the dress).
