 Dress - vintage
Belt - thrifted
Wedges - Jeffrey Campbell
Thanks to everyone who gave me feedback on my 2011 round up post. I really appreciate honest answers! I promise, no turning this blog into a polyvore thing. 

It was super chilly today. I had lots of pre-classes errands to run (omg book prices). I tossed on my vintage wool dress, wool tights, and mega-wedges for extra stomping action. This is the first time I've tried belting this dress. Most of the time belts won't hit high/wide enough for this 80s dress. I thought I'd show you guys how switching up tights, shoes and accessories can change up a very bold statement dress.

First up, a graphic print headband, light colored tights and wedge ankle boots. Next a matching hat, OTK boots, and a wrist cuff. Finally the first wearing of this dress was on my birthday last year. I wore it with my gifted Star Trek pin, fishnet tights, knee highboots and a DIY graphic print messenger bag.

  1. I really like the addition of the belt. It brings the eye in at the waist.

  6. Such an awesome dress - I remember dresses like this from the 80s (oh man, we had a LOT of colour-blocking like that!).

    I like it belted - the wedge shoes are great with it. Not too overpowering, but not too delicate.

  9. I love the belt with that dress! Though the one with the hat is still my favourite way to wear the dress

  10. You must be a Batman fan, right? I always think about being Harley Quinn for Halloween, but I'm too nervous about the skin-tight spandex cat suit. You look very cute and sassy. :)

  11. What a cool dress. It looks good with a belt. I can't believe you wore a Star Trek pin in an earlier post! It does resemble a Federation uniform. :)
