Cropped over Long


Vinca Dress - All Saints, ebay
 Jacket, belt - thrifted
Bracelets - vintage via Mom
Boots - Fluevog, ebay
Necklaces - gifts

Cropped jacket over a long(ish) dress! I nabbed the jacket for 99 cents, but I think I see why it was so cheap. It's really not as flattering as it was on the hanger. But since I'm relatively new to layering and jackets, it was a good try. I did wind up switching out for this jacket because it was a little warmer and overall fit better.

The dress was purchased for my birthday from one of  my fav international ebay sellers (who sells mostly All Saints). I got a great discount since the dress is missing a button that I actually had a replacement for! I'd been wanting this dress off the site when it was $90 (on sale), but managed to get this one for $30.

Okay, this is my faux-Westwood look. I adore Vivienne Westwood looks, but clutch my chest in pain at the prices.. soo instead I work with the elements that make me love the brand: tartan, punky details like studs, tough boots and my mom's putto-bracelet.The flat boots were because I woke up with an extremely tender ball-of-foot. Not sure what I managed to do over the weekend, but anything other than the flattest flats were not happening.

I would have skipped shoes entirely, but Hubs and I have finally found a group to play D&D with and I wanted to go. We had a good night and the dress was a good idea for sitting around, however next time I should forgo the belt.

As always with Fashion Challenges, don't forget to check out our participants here on the master post. Feel free to join in the challenge late if you so choose.

  2. Such a cute dress!!! It fits you really well too. Awesome about finding a D&D group, my hubby used to play a lot and we were going to try a couples group too but it never panned out. Now I don't think we'd have the time if we wanted to, but maybe someday!

  3. I love this dress and the cropped jacket is really cute- you could style it so many different ways! I've always been interested to know what goes on at a D&D party!

    1. Well it depends on your DM really, but who you play with and what version factor in as well. Imagine a room full of people collaborating on one story. Plus some math and dice rolls. :3

  7. You look amazing! The colors and prints are seasonally appropriate but the shorter sleeves and lighter materials are appropriate for the weather.

    I'm sorry your foot was hurting but I'm glad you had a fun night out! :)

  10. It's a great dress! I've been struggling to think of ways to wear mine (wool plaid dress) so I'll keep my eye on yours, and see if I can adapt ideas! I do miss being part of challenges (the blog re-orientation self-doubt sets in!)

  14. Adorable dress! Love it with tights and booties. Cute little jacket too. It's still pretty chilly here. No short sleeves in sight. Or sun for that matter.

    1. I don't think it was H&M, but I could be wrong. I already sent it back to goodwill. It just felt too shapeless/unflattering on me.
