Take it Easy

June 9th, 2010 by Selise

I feel very 70’s festival-goer meets corporate worker today. It’s like it’s party at the top and business at the bottom. This dress is absolutely gorgeous and I’d love to wear it more often but it’s a bit of an awkward length for work. So I decided to tuck it into a skirt and sport it as a top today.

The cut out embroidery on the vest works really well with the details of the dress/top. I threw a few stitches in this morning to keep it together and I was set. Overall I like the idea of it but I’m not sure if I’m completely convinced. I very rarely wear things tucked in (I’m still a high school rebel) so it cuts a figure a little different than I’m used to.

My belt is absolutely destroyed as you can see. It’s so versatile though because I can use it as a waist belt and also down low. I found an absolutely GORGEOUS belt today to replace it. I fell in love and bought it immediately. The only problem is it will only do for a waist belt. Oh well, I suppose that means I’ll just need to get another new one for the hips. Ow, ow! Stop twisting my arm!
