Today was far too busy for a Friday! However, I made it, and now it's the weekend.
- Dress - Hale Bob; last worn here (3rd outfit) in June 2015 for a Zentangle date in the park with Mom
- Top (underneath) - Violet & Claire, thrifted; last seen here (3rd outfit, way down) with loose layers for a grocery shop
- Floofy underskirt - no label, consignment; last worn here (that I could find) in June 2014 under a long-gone chambray dress
- Shoes - Wonders; last seen here with the pagoda jacket in July (which I did give away to a good home)
I don't wear the floofy underskirt much, but it's a handy piece to have. I need a white floofy underskirt for an outfit?? Yeah, I've got that!
here in 2009, nearly 2 years after I bought it, when I discovered it was totally sheer (note that you can see my granny panties through the dress in that picture!).
My colleague Lesley (hello, honey!) said this is her "hands-down favourite dress" I have worn to work.
The tie that I used to belt it is original to the dress, but it cuts right across my boobs, so I pulled it out - I last wore it with the tie in its proper place here in 2013, when L and I first met Melanie in Vancouver (and I'm blonde!).
- Cuff - handmade, Nashville
- Necklace - 2028, The Bay around 2009
- Rosy ear-balls - Mangos
And since it is now the weekend, the Chairman of the Board is lounging on the deck. All he needs is a fedora and a martini.

It is a beautiful dress - even if you do have to wear an entire outfit under it! One of the brands I like frequently makes sheer dresses but thankfully includes slips with them - I think there's just the one left in my wardrobe, in fact now I'm wondering where that dress is...but I usually keep the slips even if I donate the dresses, ha!ReplyDelete
Slips aren't an easy product to find, in my experience anyway, maybe I'm just looking in the wrong place!
Thank you, Mica! This is probably my favourite styling of this dress since I got it. If you find it hard to purchase slips, then it's definitely a good idea to hang onto those liners that come with dresses!Delete
He looks so cool with his arm resting over the side of the activity centre.ReplyDelete
Doesn't he? He's a very cool cat.Delete
I wish I could see that dress in person. It must be gorgeous.ReplyDelete
It really is, thank you, Linda!Delete
Silk... So gorgeous.ReplyDelete
I know, I love it!Delete
I like the kimonoish print dress, even though I have to say it seems a little big. Maybe if you wore something snugger underneath?ReplyDelete
It is indeed big (but ironically, it's too small when the tie is threaded through the bustline), but since it's a very delicate silk with no stretch, I don't want it to be too fitted. I have vintage slips that are snugger, but then I require more coverage up top than they provide. It's a tricky piece!Delete
