Another easy outfit today - and it was another crazy day at work. It's weirdly cold out now (in addition to the haze), but still sweltering in our house. There is no air movement!
Plenty of movement in this lovely orange/purple/yellow print vintage dress, though. Don't you love the tennis-style skirt?
- Dress - Sacony, vintage 60s, thrifted; first worn here in July with black accessories
- Shoes - Gap, thrifted; last seen here in August with one of my vintage circle skirts
- Jean jacket (below) - Ann Taylor Loft, NYC; last worn here in August with magenta jungle
Not much to it, just a dress and shoes. I'm always surprised that so few women wear dresses for daytime - they're so easy!
It really is like wearing pajamas to work. I feel like I'm cheating.
A coat for coverage, but not really needed today.
A nice shot of my turning-yellow-from-purple bruise, there.
I have a few pairs of wood-soled shoes, and they are more comfy than they look.
I totally missed this ring in my little "new jewelry to wear" box in my closet! This is its first wear.
- Ring - thrifted
- Earrings - vintage expo
I love this dress, Sheila! I love the colours and the style. The shoes look great too. So pretty! XXXReplyDelete
Thank you, Sasha!Delete
fabulous dress, I love its print, its shape and it fits you like a dream!, such a lovely flapper vibe, those pleats are so cute!ReplyDelete
And you rock it with your purple hair and orange earrings, such a cool color combo!
It's such a simple dress, but so easy. I like the flapper vibe too. Thank you!Delete
That is a beautiful dress and it fits you perfectly! I like where the drop waist hits. I had a striped drop waist dress a while back but it was a jersey material and I don't know if hanging it up to dry was a bad idea, it seemed to stretch out a bit and never quite looked the same. Ended up donating it so someone who wasn't petite could enjoy, but it was fun to try the trend for a while!ReplyDelete
Thanks, Mica - I don't always look good in a dropped waist, but this dress is just right. Aw, sorry to hear yours didn't work out, but good for you for donating it right away!Delete
This dress is so cute!ReplyDelete
Thank you, sweetie!Delete
I think this dress is amazing ! I need a dropdown waist dress like this.ReplyDelete
Must say it is an odd thing that when I'm out on weekends at the mall, most women are wearing jeans... and its almost an uniform, when a dress is just like you say, so easy and it stands out.
I think you would look great in a dress like this, Lorena. I know, why don't they wear more dresses?Delete
Yes I often wonder why we don't wear dresses more often - so simple. You look fab in yours and the shoes are a fabulous match.ReplyDelete
Thank you so much, Veronica!Delete
Confession... I'm closely studying your terrific poses here. They're in the Advanced Femininity Class which is a few steps down the road for me.ReplyDelete
Go for it! I have these 3 poses down to an art now, but it took a lot of trial and error.Delete
Looks like Etro to me! Love how your tattoo works with the pattern. Love the denim jacket with it to dress it down a bit. Very cool platforms, don't you love the extra height?ReplyDelete
So simple to wear dresses; pop one over your head, slide into shoes, and off you go.
Thank you! Patterned dresses have to work with my ink, for sure. I love platforms for exactly that reason. I know, more people should wear dresses!Delete
That is such a great dress - definitely one of my favourites from your closet for the pattern and the silhouette.ReplyDelete
Thank you! I love it too.Delete
What a great idea to colour co-ordinate your dress to your bruise my dear - now that's what they call styling! The dress is cute, great colours (would suit me perfectly) and works beautifully under the denim jacket. Nice bit of midweek dressing!ReplyDelete
Ha, totally not intended! Thank you, Anna!Delete
