...and from Edwardian steampunk, we move on to the 1960s.here). Based on the style and cut of the dress, I would put it at around 1999-2000. I had a similarly cut (and also purple) dress back then. I really enjoyed wearing the dress - it was super comfortable, although a few times I had to pull it down towards my knees when sitting at my desk.
Which is why I wore tights today. I really didn't want to, it being spring and all, but that's a lot of pasty-white leg!
here in February (again with lace!).
Dress (Jacob, thrifted), tights (Look of London), shoes (Fly London), cuff (Lakeland Art Metal Work, thrifted), earrings (Le Chateau), ring (Oscar & Libby).
I love the shoes with this outfit! They don't "match" but they go in a really fun way. There's something both retro and futuristic about this look. The tights do pull it all together.ReplyDelete
That purple dress is lovely! So nice with the printed tights too :)ReplyDelete
I agree with Megan. The tights and shoes look...rad! (hope you're feeling better again, Sheila) xReplyDelete
Fun outfit. The pieces do and don't go together: they don't according to conventional rules but do by creating a symbiotic spirit -- and it's the latter that counts. I love when you reference the periods of my youth.ReplyDelete
This my new favorite outfit of yours! I love the dress and the fun tights and then the shoes add a whole new element too! Everything about it is total win!ReplyDelete
I can see why you wanted to wear the shoes- ok, you need a 1970s orange dress to wear with them. So get shopping,stat, lol. I love your legs- lava lampy and all, and that cuff, suuuuper cool!ReplyDelete
Lava lamp legs, what a cool idea!ReplyDelete
The dress is great, and I think the green shoes look excellent with both the tights and the dress. xxx
The tights, the shoes, the dress... i think i have a new name for your blog: SheilaliciousReplyDelete
Yes--SHEILALICIOUS!!! That's perfect!!ReplyDelete
I am drooling over those shoes!! I love the dress with the tights--so cute!
(I'm in the pasty white almost glowing legs tribe, too)
Oh Sheila, I LOVE this outfit!! That looks smashing!! Wowsa!ReplyDelete
This has to be my absolute favorite. Its modern AND classic...with a twist. Love the tights!ReplyDelete
This is lovely - all the colours go together even if they don't match. I am glad you like your Flys - I have a similar pair in red patent with a crossover heel, the rubber herl is so deliciously bouncy!ReplyDelete
