I want to like this dress:
I really do. But, I just can’t. It’s just not right for me and it makes me pose like an idiot. I’m perfectly capable of idiotic posing on my own; I don’t need the help.
This dress just seemed like such a good idea when I thrifted it months ago. I mean, it’s red; I love red. And it has stripes; I love stripes. And it’s vintage; I love vintage. And yet, I don’t like this dress. I even took the time to hem it above the knee, thinking that might help. It didn’t.
At first I didn’t wear it because I wasn’t sure how to style it. But, I like the styling today. I think the ankle strap flats (Hive and Honey via Piperlime) and the thin belt (Steven Madden) are good choices. Just with a different dress. Luckily, my friend Alex has agreed to take this dress off my hands, which leaves me with just one more never worn dress in my closet. After I wear that, I’m shutting my Nosh Opping Expedition down.
I’ll finish it up this weekend with look at my expedition log and a retrospective of everything that didn’t make the cut. And then Maurice and I are flying home (he’s going to live in the backyard).
Happy Tuesday, Everyone!
