Visible Tuesday: Backless Trompe L'Oeil and a New Home

Meh. I'm feeling meh. Nothing. Bland. 
But I'm trying to be "Wow!"

  • Blouse - CABi, consignment; last seen here in March with much grey suede
  • Dress - Philosophy di Alberta Ferretti, consignment; last worn here (2nd outfit) in February 2014
  • Boots - Prepare Guide, Fluevogs; featured here for Shoe Shine #23, and last worn here in February
And so, I am late to the party, but hooking up with Patti's "Visible Monday" over at Not Dead Yet Style. Rock on, Patti! 

I'm tired. I want to curl up on the couch with Vizzini on my lap and a hot cup of tea. Maybe in 3 hours, when I am back from WW.

But enough of my whining.

Backless dress!
All of that stitching on it - the belt loops, pockets - it's all fake. Just stitching. This has no pockets, no belt loops. Only the buttons up the front work.

On a funny note, one of my coworkers thought I was fully tattooed. Nope, that's just my shirt.

The stuff:
I got boots.

  • Earrings - Aldo Accessories

And I got balls. Ball earrings, that is.

What I don't have? This CABi kimono-style topper! I sent it to reader Evette, who is rockin' it way better than I did. I last wore it here and expressed reservations about it. When I saw Evette's email inquiring about it, that was it - it had to leave.
Yeah, crank your neck. I don't know why cell phone photos don't respond to rotating. 
 Doesn't she look fabulous? I love it with pink. Why didn't I think of that?
Love the shoes too! Thanks for giving my blouse a new home, Evette! You look beautiful!


  1. You and Evette - both fab. I love your denim dress and remember it well - it looks better all the time. xo

  2. Evette looks great in that kimono style top - it was a lovely oiece, but much better to pass it on if it wasn't wowing you.

    Love the printed blouse layered under your dress too - I'm going to wear something similar tomorrow! :) My dress is just a plain black one though.

    Hope you are feeling better and more 'wow' after your meeting!

  3. Sorry you are not feeling on top of the world you look so happy and full of life on all your m
    Blogs so much so.you make all your followers feel happy.especially this one in Australia. Hope all your fans let u knowBest wishes Diane

  4. Thank you again so much! I love it to pieces!

  5. I've wanted a Trompe L'Oeil garment for a while, I've yet to find the perfect one.
    I love that you found a new home for your kimono, she totally rocked it. It's great to see ones goodies being worn.
