After much fun at Dave's BBQ last night, getting up this morning was a chore. I had missed my usual ritual of putting together 5 outfits before bed on Sunday night. Nothing planned, zoiks!
- Dress - Desigual, Vintage Expo; last worn here in May with turquoise pops
- Shoes - Half Truth Tanya, Fluevog; last seen here (2nd outfit) in June for the Fluevog store opening
- Jacket (below) - Club Monaco, thrifted; last worn here in July over my orange tennis dress
Dresses with allover patterns and classic cuts are the easiest things ever to wear. Dress + Belt + Shoes = Done!
But that wore off by afternoon, and I roasted on the way home.
Red and silver bling:
- Belt - Gap, thrifted
- Leather cuff - Rimanchik
- Cage cuff - Bauxo
- Earrings - gift from Megan Mae
Happy to hear you had a great weekend, Sheila! I love this dress-the colours and patterns are gorgeous. I also love the idea of dress + belt +shoes = done! Perfect for Mondays! I love the green shoes too. XXX SashaReplyDelete
Thank you so much, Sasha! It's totally my "lazy gal's guide to a good outfit", ha ha!Delete
It really is a beautiful dress!!!!ReplyDelete
Thank you, Linda!Delete
Those shoes are the most wondrous colour.ReplyDelete
Aren't they lovely? I wish I'd bought them in purple too.Delete
What tired eyes !??!ReplyDelete
You're looking looooovely in that kick ass dress, such a great piece.
Oh, you are too kind, my dear. Thank you!Delete
I see that like me you usually put together five outfits on a Sunday night! But that's not bad for an unplanned outfit at all. I love how the dress is "mismatched": at first sight it looks as if you are wearing a cleverly pattern-mixed skirt and blouse! Genius! xxwReplyDelete
Great minds think alike! Yes, that's why I fell in love with this dress - such great patterns!Delete
Loving the print mix and those shoes!!!!!ReplyDelete
Thank you, Becky!Delete
Shazam!! Yes!! I love this dress. I also love that they didn't put happy writing all over it, which Desigual often does. Three thumbs up. Yes, what tired eyes? Heh.ReplyDelete
Oh, they managed to write on this - "Desigual" is embroidered on the back of the neck - but it's subtle. Gads, so tired...Delete
Wild about this dress, as you can well imagine! The print is rockin! I agree a dress makes getting dressed a snap, add a cardi, fabulous shoes, check check !, to those green ones, and a few pieces of bling and out you go!ReplyDelete
Fabulous, as always ! Tired eyes, maybe a good nap !! 😘🤗😞😴😴😴💕
Thanks, Elle! It's such a fabulous mix of colours and patterns. Wearing a dress is an easy pick-me-up and it is nearly like wearing pajamas. Thank you so much!Delete
I have realized I'm not a big fan of patterns on me (except for stripes and polkadots) but I like them on other people. I like the mix of colours in this dress, and the fit is very flattering.ReplyDelete
That's cool - how boring if we all liked the same things! Thank you so much, Shelley!Delete
