As if I could Wait

Dress - LA made, thrifted
Flats - Frye

Tamera left a comment yesterday when my readers would see the new dress. As if I could wait another day! I wanted to wear this as soon as I got it washed. It's the perfect shade of royal purple according to wiki (my favorite!). It's cut exceedingly similar to the All Saints dress I sold to Keely, only made of 100% cotton instead of jersey. That dress had shrunk in the dryer and I don't like things shorter than knee length, but this dress hits at a good length for my comfort. 

I decided to stick with my own classic way of styling new dresses - put a harness on it! It's hot enough that I didn't layer anything, but this dress is going to be excellent for layering up in any season. And my helpful background gave me the excellent idea that I NEED to pair this with neon green. I love a piece like this, it just merges into my wardrobe and ideas fly with how to dress it up. What's your favorite piece in your closet?

Bloggers to Watch: I started editing my blogroll, removing defunct blogs and adding a few new ones. I wanted to give you all a heads up on two of my newest. Please check out Amber at Butane Anvil, who is new to me, but already made a spot on my list. Also Secret Squirrel of Fashion Maths, who I want to see more from.Her casual kicky style is a sweet addition to my blogroll.

    Thank you so much Megan Mae, what a lovely thing to discover at the end of a long day trip (mainly spent shopping!). It is bloggers like you, Sheila and Lynne that prompted me to start my own blog so I could properly join the conversation...

  5. Fabulous dress - you know I love the asymmetrical stylings, and it looks amazing with that harness. So you!

    I love SS as well, and Amber is also new to me. I really need to clean up my Blog List - there are a lot of defunct blogs out there, or ones I just don't read anymore.

  6. That is a fabulous dress. I'm loving the harness, though. It's very every day steampunk. :-) I also adore your hair.

    Thank you for the sweet comment you left over on my blog.

  9. WOW, Megan everything about that dress is spectacular on you! I love how you added the perfect accessories in the exact right quantity. You have such a great way of combining several outstanding elements - yet without them competing - to create awesome outfits. I'm also fascinated by how you find many different ways to remix everything, no matter how potentially challenging.

    Thank you ever so much for linking to my blog - ! I am absolutely thrilled to be included on your blogroll, and like Secret Squirrel, it was all of you (Megan, Megan, Sheila, Ally, Lynne, Gracey ...) who inspired me to quit being such a turkey-lurkey and get started. I am frightfully new, and greatly appreciate the welcome by the people I so admire!

  10. That dress is the awesome! I like how the strappiness of the harness matches the strappiness of the shoes. It is very "all saints-esque".

    Favourite piece in my closet? Oh wow....Looking back at my outfits I wear my polka dot sweater the most but I'm not sure that's my favourite piece. Probably my optical illusion dress. http://www.flickr.com/photos/meegiemoo/6919005227/in/set-72157628707508813

  13. Another favorite outfit! Purple is one of my favorite colors too. The harness is the perfect addition to this dress. Your hair is getting so long!
    My favorite piece has to be my black top with the pleather accents. I am wearing it so often. Yesterday as a matter of fact.
