These photos are probably 6 weeks old. I didn't post them because well, I'm don't really like the outfit.
I bought the dress at a thrift shop and now I'm seriously thinking it was a mistake. I love the colours but the dress is a shiny polyester mix and gets lots of static cling. Also I find that the pattern and colour are overwhelming, that's why I'm wearing it with a sweater. All that topped with the fact that the dress is probably 2-3 sizes too large for me, plus it wasn't even cheap, it was still $20. Argh!!! Live and learn I guess. If I were better with a sewing machine I might try to turn this into a top and skirt. I think that would work better. Maybe I should take it with me to the consignment store next time.
Another pet peeve about this ensemble is that although my tights in this shot are brown I feel they are too dark. They look black. It breaks up my body too much. This look will not be going into to my book of outfits.
On a positive note I do like the doggy brooch and vintage hat and the lovely background of leaves. Gotta try and stay positive right?
