Origami

Lately I've found myself loving heart-shaped bustier dresses, so it was a really sweet surprise when I received this dress from Plastic Island...
What I love most about this dress is that has this incredibly structured origami detail on the side, almost like a fin!
Worn with a silk blouse, Balenciaga platform sandals, and Jil Sander mirrored shades.
Thank you Rachel for my Plastic Island dress!

Love the delicacy of the blouse. And how sexy is it that its sheer? Nice! Yes, the structure of the dress is nice, but i cant take my eyes of the silk shirt and those uber-cool shades. Lovely post!
Peace, Milles.

I was just watching Coco Avant Chanel, the credits just rolled a minute ago, something about this outfit has the same vibe for me.
It's a good thing. :-)

What a great dress. I love it over the sheer blouse, too; it makes it much more daytime appropriate.

I really like the dress but not the outfit... Think it would look much better without the shirt and with another kind of sandals...

Just my opinion... It's simply impossible for all of us to love everything...

GabiiParssoons said...

i kinda like it, my only problem with this is that the dress itss too big for you, and even though i adore those sandals i dont think they were the most aproppiate for this outfit, as far as the blouse its kiinda cute, but not love it, you can do so much better than this

O: i see that you have your natural nails now, i wish i could have nails, i always bite them

I know you got if for free and you have to promote it, but its just too big for you. its good tho that you put the sheer blouse on to make it a bit more fitted, but it sure is a little to big.

Love your blog! greetings from Belgium!
