Go Big or Go Home

Today's red is a tomato-y red, with deep orange tones. I like all shades of red, however. I wanted to wear this dress again:
The Pouffiest Dress Ever returns! I took Steph's advice from last time I wore it and safety-pinned the top of it to my bra. The things we do for fashion.

And as per the title, this outfit is all about The Big. Big dress, big necklace, big belt, big shoes.
I think I could stash about 16 bags of marshmallows in the skirt alone!

The stuff:
Ah, sweet giant shoes. Maybe you won't believe me, but these do not hurt my feet at all. Still, I'm very careful when I walk in them.

Dress (Vita Boutique Couture, thrifted), cardigan (Kersh), belt (Gap), shoes (Carvela), necklace (Club Monaco).

  2. EEE! Yes! I love this dress and am very happy to see it again! That bubble hem ROCKS.

    I can totally believe platforms like that are comfortable - standing still. I'd probably trip and fall right over though.

  9. Love the great poofy dress- really cool that you can wear it to work! But the shoes...those shoes are gorgeous! I can see where they'd be comfy. But I can tell I'm getting older- I saw them and thought: "Could I wear those without breaking my ankle?"
    *Sigh* and I used to be a platform shoe queen...

    Thanks, Rita! Yes, my work is pretty good for that. I'm very careful how I walk in my shoes.

    Steph, ah, gotcha. Dang monitors!

  12. I was once browsing in a Utilikilt store in Seattle, and the sales guy described each kilt design in terms of how many beers you could fit in the pockets. Bags of marshmallows sound a lot more comfortable!

  14. You inspire me Sheila, and your cat has the exact same markings as my dog Sheba -- exact.
    Your cat looks like my dog, but a cat.
