Deadwood Altair Dress - All Saints, gift from Megan
Tee - Club Monaco (old)
Belt - Rugged Warehouse
Boots - Frye, ebay
Ahh! Yes! Today was so crazy I can hardly begin. For starters, today is probably my last day for knee high boots. I was sweatin' today. Still in the 80s with no cooling off in the weather forecast. I'm glad I didn't wear a jacket today. This is the second All Saints dress, gifted to me by the awesomesauce Megan. I have to admit I was pretty excited to get this one. It was a bit big on me compared to the black dress from Tuesday, but a couple of seams brought the bust up.
I took some inspiration from Audi on this outfit and layered a tee underneath. I went for purple, although the plaid is a faded red, grey and khaki. Even with the best of tailoring, this bustline is quite open. You can also see me versus Audi - I'm short. Almost all my dresses hit below my knee or mid-knee. I think it balances the open neckline though.
I have a similar dress by All Saints (the Vinca), but the neckline is a little less open and it doesn't have the poof at the neck line. Which I will admit to de-poofing by about 4 inches of fabric. Otherwise it doesn't lay under jackets very well and and I am so in love with this plaid I hardly want to limit it to summer wear. The excess fabric became two unique buttonflowers, one of which is on it's way back to Megan as a thankyou.
A quick reminder, Fashion Challenge - Stripes Week starts next week. I hope you will consider joining Keely and I for at least one day of striped goodness.
