Wearing this dress is daring for me- a serial food spliller, dirty things bumper, have get on the bus sitter type of person. I’m always afraid of wearing white or off white colors like this because of the inevitable stains. I gave myself a little pat on the back for having gone most of the day with no stains. But did end up with one micro-stain that appears to be chocolate by the evening, damn.
The cream color of this dress and the sort of drop waist were the first things that attracted me to it when I saw it on the hanger. It’s made out of cotton, so it’s still casual but at the same time has this dressiness about it. But I like that it can be so versatile depending on how you style it. I’ve already imagined up many ways to wear it just by changing my shoes or sweater/coat!
This time around because I’m a little obsessed with short black boots, I had to wear it with my go to boots for 2012. A bit polar from my mix & matched and colorful outfits of late (I’ve also forced myself to not wear pants as much!)
And because of our wonderful wacky weather, a sweater/jacket is a must. Another go to for me this year, this cotton faux motorcycle jacket.
Dress: Vince thrifted. Boots: Sam Edelman, gift from sister. Jacket: Forever 21. Watch: Vintage Bill Blass from Alameda Flea.
Oh, and happy birthday to me :) hopefully another year wiser.
