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.
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.
Lots of gold - so classy!
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!
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.ReplyDelete
The jacket (!) and shoes make a fabulous pairing and equal the dress for interest; the entire outfit appeals to me. :)
Enjoy your days!
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! :)ReplyDelete
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.ReplyDelete
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

The shapes of the blazer and dress go so well together. Beautiful look.ReplyDelete
The jacket and shoes are super. LenoraReplyDelete
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!ReplyDelete
That dress looked fabulous styled with the jungle-floral blazer and pretty scarf!
You look fantastic in this dress. I love the gold shoes and the accessories you paired with it.ReplyDelete
What a hilarious name!ReplyDelete
