Whenever I have a "miss" on an outfit, I generally bounce back the same way every time: I wear a dress.here), where I wore it twice, here and here.
The cardi pulls out another wear this summer, last seen here with my turquoise origami dress in June.
my jammy dress, it's so nice to have an orphan dress where you just wear the same thing every time. You don't have to think too hard, and you know you'll feel and look good.
Cardigan (Peter Nygard, consignment), dress (Planet, thrifted), shoes (Jump For the People, consignment), earrings (Aldo Accessories).
So remember back in July when I got some of my Aunt Kathy's mom's stuff from the 70s? Of course you do, but allow me refresh your memory (scroll down). I got this fabulous Hawaiian dress, remember?
But what I didn't mention then is that I tried on another dress (and a fuzzy hat) while I was there:
|My boob is looking at you.|
"But Sheila," you're saying, "Why haven't we seen you wear this glorious and amazing dress this summer?"
It was WAY too tight. I barely got it done up and it was so tight it gave me Boobular Mass. Sorry, only my sportsbra is permitted to do that. And the neck was very choky and tight (gak!). It was also stained (and it didn't look like the stains would come out), and super heavy and hot to wear. I reluctantly left it for donation. It's all about the karma. Someone else will find it and love it.
But isn't it beautiful? I'm so glad I have this picture to remember it by.
Woah you are right, that dress is glorious! I have a silver dress that was my great grandmother's. I can't even wear a bra with it, it's so tight across the chest, and breathing is not an option, haha. I kept it though, because it is so lovely.ReplyDelete
I like your cropped yellow cardigan/shrug. Something about that type of cut is so appealing. Great combination with the neutral shoes!
That pepto pink dress is fabulous - what a shame about it being too tight. But if you can't wear it I guess as you say it's better to let someone else get wear out of it.ReplyDelete
Love the lilac dress and the crop yellow cardi together.
That pink dress is beautiful, hopefully someone will find it fits them perfectly! :)ReplyDelete
Really like your purple dress too, glad you're keeping it :)
Yes, gorgeous 70's maxis! I love that era for its great prints and colors. Sad that the pink one couldn't stay, but you're right, it will get loved.ReplyDelete
The last dress really does look fantastic - but I too dislike things that are too choky in the neck, so I completely understand passing it up! I bet it was fun to dress up in just for a little bit though! The hat is cute too!ReplyDelete
The lavender dres is gorgeous and yes it's not a bad thing to have a "standard" outfit you wear the same way everytime. Good for one of "those days"ReplyDelete
I can't wait to see you wear the hawaiin dress--it's just fantastic!!
It's a shame about the pink dress because style and color wise it's gorgeous on you!!
My jaw dropped - the last long fuchsia dress, yes the one where your boob's looking straight at me - it's just spectacular!!!!!!!!!ReplyDelete
the length, the color.... the side brooch.
I am sooo sorry it did not fit.
Sometimes you do just need a great dress that speaks for itself.ReplyDelete
The great thing about having digital cameras is we can keep photos of stuff that didn't work out! That pink dress is fun, but hopefully someone else got the thrifting karma. I just donated a bunch of stuff that I just hadn't gotten to altering. Hopefully it'll make someone's day to discover the things I let go.
Oh such a shame the ruffled pink one didn't work out, but what a fabulous picture to remember it by! Perfectly posed, as I would expect.. The one that fitted is a beauty though xReplyDelete
