Dots, Circles and Spheres

After yesterday's Smoking Lily jacket, I was inspired to wear my lovely Smoking Lily dress today: Inigo barged into the shot - I didn't know he was there until I felt him rub my leg.

I haven't worn this dress since August! The short sleeves make it pretty much a warmer-weather outfit (I froze in the AC in the office today). I wore my burgundy vintage flounced slip with this (last seen on Valentine's Day).
It was a bit too full to wear under the dress, but I didn't mind.

The stuff:
Second wear of my gold shoes (last seen here). They were much more comfortable this time.

I love the circle pattern in this fabric, and decided to wear "ball" jewelry with it:
That's my Grandma J's necklace (it's Anne Klein, and I think it's probably from the early 80s), my cheap-o gold ball earrings, my fake Gucci eelskin bracelet and a bigass costume ring.

Dress (Smoking Lily, consignment), slip (Suzette Lingerie, vintage, consignment), shoes (Aldo, consignment), necklace (Grandma J's, Anne Klein, vintage), bracelet (Italian, gift from Mom and Dad), earrings (Aldo Accessories), ring (retro).


  1. Cute dress and I really love the shoes...they are the perfect heel for me!! I haven't frozen in AC in so long...just a couple of hours from us today, the temp was already 102!!

  2. I love this outfit. And, nothing makes a great outfit better like a big black and white boycat muscling in on the shot.

  3. I like that print,and puff sleeves are too cute to hide under layers in the winter.

  4. Wow, I can't believe that dress has been hiding for so long - it looks so great! The color is just gorgeous, and I like the red slip peeking out from underneath.

  5. I love that dress! Love it. Very unique and quirky.

  6. I'm into polka dots lately! Very cute and feminine outfit! Love the gold shoes! kisses

  7. Please send me an e-mail. Barefoot Tessa is waiting for you.

  8. I LOVE the full slip under the frock - it gives it a lovely lift and fullness!

    And give yur Inigo a big cuddle for me!

  11. You're making me regret passing up that wrap dress the other day at the thrift store (despite the fact that I knew it was a bad purchase - having a run in the fabric can't be good!). I desperately need a dress with PATTERN!

  12. Kittybomb! Hooray for smokinglily. That's one of my favorite dresses of your's.

  13. awwww, kitty!

    He was drawn to that exceptionally beautiful dress - he has great taste!

  14. Cute; I have missed seeing that dress!

    Inigo and George should meet someday, since they are a big pair of hams.

  15. Thanks, Pam! I love a kitten heel. Wow, that's hot!

    Cynthia, thank you. Hee, yes, the best accessory is cat.

    Thanks, Rebecca, I agree!

    Anne, I know - this is a sign that my closet is too big, isn't it?

    Thank you, Kari!

    Dimi, I love polka dots, thank you!

    Sara, thank you, that's what I love about it. Hee, I will.

    Thanks, Northmoon - I love exercising that creative muscle again.

    Bonnie, thank you!

    Cara, I love wrap dresses, but no, you were right to pass that up if it was damaged.

    Megan, hee, thank you!

    Karen, you must be right.

    Kristen, thanks! Ha, so much ham together would be awesome.
