This dress was given to me by my friend, and resident dress queen, Kelsey. She’s gotten pretty good at picking good ones, and I was excited that she’d found one and thought of me. A few of the buttons were loose but that was easily fixable with a few minutes time and some handsewing. This dress does not disappoint – green to coordinate with my red hair (a combination I love but try not to utilize too much so it’s not overused; aka I like it but am also a bit annoyed that people always want to put redheads in green), a separate slip that can be worn with other things ( I wore it here, with the boxy tunic I crocheted) and full buttons up the front so the dress can be worn over something else like a long vest or just as an extra layer, making it super versatile, the nice gold button detail and shape giving it a retro 20-30s look, and of course the godets in the skirt making it very spin-worthy.
I love the tab and button on the sleeves. Also, my hair’s getting long enough on top to do more braids.
I’ve had these shoes since high school, so for at LEAST seven years! I can’t remember when, exactly, I got them, but I wore them a lot back then. They’ve held up pretty well but I don’t wear them as much lately because I tend to seek comfort in footwear right now. Kind of crazy to think I wore these and other tall wedges all the time in high school. Is this a sign that I’m getting old, or just going through a phase of lazy with footwear? haha. Anyway, I’m glad I pulled them out and wound up wearing them this day. While I think gold shoes would work really well with this dress thanks to the buttons, I love how the blue and green pop against one another.
I wore this dress out for dinner and shopping for random things and necessities with Tanner. No special occasion, I just like to get dressed up sometimes when we go out together; most of the time when I go out of the house it’s in gym clothes so I like dressing up a bit more when I can, and I’ve also always liked to dress up for Tanner. :)
Dress: Paper Doll (Kelsey got it at a local store)
Shoes: Route 66 (very old)
Hope you guys have a wonderful day!
