Emboobening

I'm pretty sure this is the first time I've worn this dress with the ruffled top part showing. I'm not really sure why either; I think I used to feel it was a bit much, but now it pleases my eye just fine. And combined with the gorgeous harness that Mark made me, the outfit is totally emboobening, as Sal would say.

I was tempted to pair these tights with my Fluevog sandals, as I've done so many times before. But I realized that adding the blue boots would bring some punchy contrast to the outfit, which on a foggy, gray day was just what I needed. These boots are really tall, adding a good 4.5 inches to my height, so they counter the leg-shortening effect that short boots like this often have. I love how the brass details on the boots pair so nicely with the hardware on the harness.

Dress: Tulle
Shirt: H&M

Wow, I love the pops of blue. You're looking particularly fabulous here.

I just adore the rich autumnal colors of this outfit! I've stayed away from excessive ruffling as well, but every now and then it strikes my fancy. This looks fabulous!

I love the navy and rust colors together. You are rocking some severely fabulous boots.

How much do I love orange and blue together?? This much! You are indeed looking much emboobened - the harness, the ruffles, ah! So fab.

There is nothing quite as enboobening as that harness ... which is why I just ordered up a black one!

And excellent choice on the booties. They look absolutely amazing in this mix.

In summer cotton salwar suit is a must in a wardrobe. I would like to share the site www.kaneesha.com from where I purchased a cotton salwar suit. They have great collection of cotton suits.
