Geometric Dress

Debuting an 80s printed silk dress that my friend from the blog Sincerely Jules gave me! Thank you Julie! It is absolutely perfect- I am loving the tiny tab collar and balloon sleeves.
Paired with vintage bangles, Shi4 obi belt, Super sunglasses, and Givenchy strappy sandals. 
I've been trying to dress up more lately and only wear dresses and skirts, but it's becoming quite difficult. Sometimes all I want to wear are my old Levi 501s!

That belt is my new favorite thing! I might try to make one like it soon.

Malori said...

I am obsessed with that belt. I wear a ton of little black dresses so it's fun to get inspiration for ways to spice them up a bit :)

Anisa said...

The strong shoulders definitely leaves a nice impression, this dress looks fabulous on you! The print is kind of like a high class giraffe (in a good way!) And I totally feel you on the last bit, sometimes all I want to wear is my boxers and slippers, forget getting all dolled up!

It's so chic, I love it.

And you're lucky to be living somewhere warm, as it's much easier dressing up in warm weather than it is in the cold and rainy weather I'm in. I'm lucky if I even make it out of my pj's every day :P

you look awesome I love that belt on this dress!

the belt! perfect

Absolutely Mrs. K said...

Everything looks so simple, and then bam: the gorgeous blue belt. The belt is the pure finishing touch and this is what’s making it interesting. It also proofs that you have a tremendous fashion style, it’s a risk to wear a bold belt but is looks fabulous. It’s a real eye catcher, so great choice by wearing simple black shoes. The bracelets are big and bold, but they look amazing with the outfit (they have neutral colors, so good combination). It’s a simple, yet exuberant look: you want to look at it over and over again because it’s interesting.

Can't tell you how relieved I am that even super stylish people like you get wardrobe doldrums... I'm always tempted to live in my tights and shorts, but I try to push myself to wear something more interesting, more expressive!

I'm generally such a jeans girl- I own 3 kinds of the same pair of jeans cause I liked them so much. I've been making more of an effort to wear dresses and skirts too, though. I am in love with your OBI belt, I really want to get one, I think it'd be great with some of my outfits. Your Givenchy sandals are amazing, too!
