[Oh, for crying out loud - I wrote and thought I had posted this last night. No wonder it had no comments! Enjoy your weekend, my friends!]
You know you've found a good item when you're shopping when you look in the mirror and go "oh, yes!" That's how it was for this dress for me.
- Dress - handmade, consignment; purchased here on the weekend for $26,98
- Boots - Coffee Kope Tiam, Fluevog (2011); last worn here in November 2016 with fall shades
- Coat (below) - Danier Leather, thrifted
The front of the dress is cut on the bias, so it twists the side seams a bit, especially since the two back panels are cut on different angles to match the pattern up.
- Leather wrist-wrap - Kipling, thrifted
- Cuff - Jezebel Charms, gift from L
- Bronze pinky ring - P. Sarpaneva, vintage 70s, vintage expo
- Amber ring - some junky store in the late 90s
- Spinner ring - Twang & Pearl
- Earrings - thrifted
I have some family coming to town this weekend, so I might not be back for a few days. I promise lots of outfits, though! Have a fab weekend, everyone!
The overall line and length of this is stunning on you! I love it.ReplyDelete
That is a beautiful dress on you Sheila! I don't think it needs a belt, perfect as-is! It's a shame it doesn't have those little loops inside to keep the dress and bra straps lined up. Do you use the safety pin trick a lot? On the tops I have that don't have those bra strap holders (I don't know what they're called!) I tend not to use anything as I often forget I've pinned it and then try take it off and have in the past torn fabric! When it's just the little snap closure it sometimes comes undone when I forget, or I startle myself when it holds firm, haha.ReplyDelete
Yeah, it doesn't look right with a belt, so I'll probably end up wearing it plain or with a jacket over it.Delete
I don't use the safety-pin trick very often (I don't know what those loops are called either!), but I also don't like my bra strap fully exposed. I've torn things as well due to safety pins.
It is a fabulous dress and it looks wonderful on you!ReplyDelete
Aw, thanks, Veronica!Delete
I find the boat neck shape is most flattering on me too. What an awesome dress!ReplyDelete
I never thought it would be that flattering, but surprise! Thank you, Shelley!Delete
That dress how do you find such goodies! ( ok, i know, i am a shopper too, but still !!). Love the pattern and the neckline. Love the half moon earrings and the boots, too! Very good with the leather blazer, Superb!ReplyDelete
I look for the good stuff, Elle, but as a fellow awesome shopper (hee) you know that! Thank you!Delete
I do know that feeling... and hell yes ! its a gorgeous dress.ReplyDelete
Thank you! Shouldn't all of our clothes be like that?Delete
Such a simple shape, stylish, elegant and really suits your frame Sheila. I love the colour as well as the pattern, and also how you've added those cute booties to finish the look. Good move!ReplyDelete
Thanks so much, Anna! It's such a pretty dress.Delete
