Ahhh! I feel so naked! >_< Haha. I hardly ever wear just a dress. I'm proud of myself for doing such a thing repeatedly over the last couple of weeks. It would not happen this often, but for the challenge!
So, I actually have this teal eyelet dress up for sale in my Storenvy shop. It's just a little snug in the chest area for me and I wasn't sure if that would end up bothering me in the long run. I'm still a bit on the fence about letting the dress go, because the design is so great. There's so much going on with the delicate, subtle print; the cross back; the finely stitched florals at the bust; and the soft velvet trim around the waist. I've been meaning to do some research to find out whether the dress is vintage. I can't shake the feeling that it might be. It's just so incredibly unique. I may transfer it to my Etsy shop.
I'm also wearing my new orange bag! Squee! Haha :DDD I was lucky enough to receive it through my clothing swap group. I'm not all that thrilled about the overall design, but I am super stoked about the bright, almost neon orange color. I really need more bright colored bags and I figured I could do some interesting things with this one. The fact that I can remove the long strap is an added bonus. :P
Here you can see the contrasting criss-cross straps and eyelet print in better detail. The dress really is fantastic. ^_^ I apologize for ruining the view with my dragon tattoo. Haha. If you're into tattoos or if you're just curious about what the whole thing looks like, click here. I actually really like it and I get compliments on it all the time, but as you've probably noticed, I usually keep it covered up. I don't really do this on purpose. I just tend to forget that it's there. >_< Haha. Maybe I should try to show it off more?
The stitching of the florals at the front is so cute! I love the soft, tiny fringe balls lining the velvet "belt" around the waist. I'm a sucker for small details and this dress has so many little treasures. ^_^
Thank you for your kindness, as always! *^_^* I hope you all have a wonderful weekend! <3
