It is. I think it’s conceptually sound, but the execution was shaky:
Allow me to explain. It was finally boot weather here in Oregon, so of course I had to wear boots. And I love wearing boots with dresses, so I had to wear a dress. And the dress I chose is sheer so I had to wear a slip. And I’ve always wanted to try a dress with an exposed slip, so I selected a slip that’s just a bit longer than the dress. All that makes sense, right?
Well, here’s where it fell apart. I paired cognac boots (Steven Madden) and a belt (thrifted) with this dress (vintage Blair, thrifted) because I swear to goodness there is some cognac in the print:
But, not enough to notice from far away, making the look a little iffy. Adding to the iffy-ness is the fact that I refused to iron the slip. Because to me that’s like ironing sheets. Or jeans. Ridiculousness. (Unless, of course, you iron your sheets and jeans and then I totally respect your commitment to a wrinkle-free life). So, yeah, not quite what I wanted.
That’s okay though, I gave it a shot and I’m not mad that I did.
Happy Wednesday, Everyone!
