The Dress Speaks for Itself

If this were a court of law, this dress would be representing itself:


And it would tell the court not to adjust its monitors because, yes, it is that hot of a hot pink, and yes, that is a pleated skirt and, in case the court was curious, it’s made of a lightweight sweatshirt-like material.  Oh, and it would also want the court to know that it was only dollar.  And then it would rest its case because it doesn’t have anything more to say on the matter.



The rest of the outfit, though, had to hire me for representation, so I’ll tell you that I paired the dress (thrifted with the tags (Terri Ellen & JC Penney) still on) with suede boots (Naughty Monkey), a straw and patent belt (via Nordstrom), black and turquoise bracelets (thrifted, gifted and Macy’s) and silver and turquoise earrings (handmade by Mom).

And that’s all I have to say on the matter.

Happy Wednesday, All!

  1. I love hot pink. I think this dress would look great with a statement necklace and heels.

  2. The dress would totally win in court. The judge would probably even spontaneously throw in court costs.

  5. LOL! This post made my laugh. That dress is fantastic! Bright pink is an autumnal color, btw, at least as far as I'm concerned. =) Love the dress paired with that belt, too! Frankly, I'm digging the whole look.

    Oh, and the brand name of those boots, Naughty Monkey? Best. Brand Name. Ever.

  10. SO AWESOME! The shape, the color, the fabric, everything. And the black/white pops are excellent and exciting next to it. A bit 80s retro, in the very best of ways!
