…is what I secretly thought this look resembled but frowned when someone said so…
The dress: The second decent thing I found at Costa this year. Its a lovely, almost 70′s/cow girl inspired flower printed shirt dress with breast pockets and mother of pearl buttons all down the front. Here is a closer look.
I folded the sleeves for fun and the belt came with! The only thing that would make it more perfect is pockets. But alas, it has none. I layered again, with semi opaque black stockings.
To leave the house I threw on my faux leather crop jacket. Yes, I said faux. leather. crop. jacket. Look at it before you pass judgement.
The jacket: ADORABLE faux leather biker jacket from H&M. I bought it at full price because I could not resist it and did not want to risk them running out of the few size 2′s they usually get. The diagonal zipper, the double breast, the puffed sleeves, the way it fits! OH MY! A few months later it was down to half price with my size in abundance…so I bought a grey leather blazer then, to be debuted sometime soon.
I do not regret paying full price for it one bit. I’m glad its not real leather, because the ex-vegetarian in me still has a problem with that, and I just cannot get over how AWESOME it is.
The shoes: I don’t have a proper picture, but these are awesome, super comfy, soft pointy toe flats from H&M with an ankle strap with brass buckles (easily removable when needed). I wear them
Accessories: None except for the regular silver I never take off and my hair that behaved exceptionally well after the new haircut and washing out the super straight style they leave you with. I’m enjoying the wash and wear, natural waves VERY much.
I really like this dress and wish I had more fuss free dresses like this. Its good for brunch, work, a casual dinner or just helping a friend buy gifts for mummy and behna back home, as the case was on this occasion.
