Formula



This outfit is sort of a repeat, as I've worn this dress/tights/shoes combo a couple times before, but the colors just go so well together that whenever I pull this dress out I'm stumped to come up with a better formula. Sometimes there's just no messing with a good thing.

Since the middle panel of this dress is a see-through lace mesh, I always need to cover the midriff in order to wear it to work. This time I used the blazer to cover most of it, and filled in the rest with the scarf. It was fairly cool that day, so the velvet blazer and tights kept me warm, while the sandals and bright colors made it seasonally appropriate.



The outdoor location is the patio just off our dining room (which really isn't a dining room so much as a hatmaking studio). You've actually seen this location before, but it was with the ugly blue building next door in the background. I much prefer this angle.

Dress: Betsey Johnson
Scarf: vintage
Blazer: Victoria M. Ortiz
Tights: Foot Traffic
Sandals: John Fluevog

Why change what works? I love the shape of that blazer. The extra 'springy' scarf helps to mix things up.

Hmm... can't say I can see what you see in the outfit. None of seems related to the rest (even in clashing way). But hey, if it makes you happy. :)

Interesting outfit. Betsey's clothes are always unusual. And you're only the second person I've seen wear John Fluevog shoes. (Sheila at Ephemera was the first.) I was walking the streets of Manhattan three weeks ago and stumbled across a JF store: nice shoes, less expensive than I expected.
