I'm fairly certain it has something to do with the ratio of shaft height to heel height on the boots. Also probably a factor is the length of the dress in relation to the boots. But, I have no idea what those ratios should be. That being said, I do think this is probably my most successful attempt at the look:
|Dress: c/o MarketPlace: Handwork of India Jacket: Kenneth Cole NY Boots: Splendid|
And to be honest, what I think makes it successful, if, indeed it is, is the dress. This dress is beautiful. It's the perfect color and the print is gorgeous:
It's part of the MarketPlace: Handwork of India Spring Collection and I love it. I love the fit and I love that it's actually a midi, even on my tall self. I was actually concerned that it wouldn't be, but I think the length is perfect. And, of course, like all MarketPlace items, it is hand-printed, hand-embroidered and its manufacturing helps provide jobs and training to female artisans in India.
So, yeah, I'm honestly not sure I'm pulling off a midi and a moto; all I'm really sure about is that I will be wearing the heck out of this dress from here until next fall.
Happy Monday, All!
