Monday Madness: Dress of a Thousand Nipples Debut!

This week, I will be taking a short mid-week blog break (no worries, nothing terrible, just taking a couple of days), and so today was both my Monday and my Friday.
This calls for madness! Dress of a Thousand Nipples! 

  • Blazer - Zara, consignment; last seen here (2nd outfit) in May with dots and white jeans
  • Dress - Faux-lexander McQueen, consignment; purchased here for $60.00
  • Shoes  - Super Fine Cardinal, Fluevog; last worn here in July with a snake theme

I'll say it right away - this dress is SHEER.
I'll show you how I managed it in a bit. 

I layered my jungle blazer over the dress in an effort to look slightly professional. 
The office was dead, but the few people I saw really liked the dress. 

I look totally normal from behind! 
I can picture this dress in fall/winter with a turtleneck and matching tights layered with it. 

Masked up. 
Look at all those nipples! There must be...a thousand

I didn't realize quite how low the front was, so the scarf was welcome. 

Here's the dress on its own. 
Rest assured, I am wearing a layer under this. 
The back is much more solid than the front. 

I have a peach vintage slip on underneath. 
Vintage underlovelies to the rescue! 

I'm fond of this bug scarf, which is over 25 years old. 

The stuff: 
Lots of gold - so classy! 

Gold bling: 
Wearing some of my new-to-me pieces. 

  • Brooch - vintage 60s, Mom's
  • Filigree bracelet - thrifted, Sidney
  • Chunky bracelet - J. Crew, consignment; purchased here for $15.00
  • Giant ring - Harriet Grey, Sidney; purchased here for $1.00
  • Earrings - Shiraleah, Sidney; purchased here for $1.00
  • Fulvia Ring - Wendy Brandes

Well, there you have it. I'll be back later this week - stay chill, my friends! 


  1. I was thinking if there were also nipples on the back it might be uncomfortable for sitting. In any case, the looks super on you and -i n addition to winterizing the look with a turtleneck and tights - I could see this snazzed up and worn to a special evening event.

    The jacket (!) and shoes make a fabulous pairing and equal the dress for interest; the entire outfit appeals to me. :)

    Enjoy your days!
    Cheers, Laurie

  2. It is such a stunning dress on you and I love the blazer and gold accessories with it! I hope you enjoy your mid-week blog break! :)

  3. Hurray for vintage underlovelies, but that said, you look absolutely stunning in the dress of a thousand nipples! And you styled it really well with that gorgeous Zara jacket and lots of gold.
    I'd love to see a winterized version of it, but this one's definitely a winner in my eyes.
    Enjoy your mid-week break, Sheila! xxx

  4. I LOVE this dress! Looks fabulous on you!

  5. The shapes of the blazer and dress go so well together. Beautiful look.

  6. The jacket and shoes are super. Lenora

  7. The close-to-flesh-tone colour of the vintage under-lovely you styled under that gorgeous sheer Faux-lexander McQueen dress must cause people to do double-takes!
    That dress looked fabulous styled with the jungle-floral blazer and pretty scarf!

  8. You look fantastic in this dress. I love the gold shoes and the accessories you paired with it.
