That Slip Dress

There I was in Times Square getting off the escalator inside H&M and there they were: dark blue slip dresses. Boom!

It must have looked like I was still on the escalator judging by the way I glided over to the rack of them.

I like the lace part at the bottom.  Reminds me of a real night slip dress you thought of wearing outdoors. You’ve seen the boots before.
Here’s an old post showing you how to customize your own old boots. Warning: You need sharp scissors.

Slip dress: H&M. Try Free People. I like this black, the ‘Bonita‘ or this gorge one (want!). Fringe jacket: Vintage. Boots: (DIY cut to ankle + metal tips added). Try these by Steve Madden, Office Vintage. Bag: Vintage Coach. Shades: Ray-Ban
I know if Mum saw this dress she’d probably say ‘isn’t that a nightie you’ve got on?’ to which I’d probably say ‘yes it is – cool right?’ as I walk out the door – just to wind her up 😉 
Soon as I saw it though at the shop I didn’t even hesitate. I was scanning the size labels before I even looked at the price when normally it’s the other way round.
I added an old belt and a suede fringe jacket (you saw the jacket a couple of weeks ago with white jeans here).  A cropped jacket would’ve worked too – next time. I’m just glad it’s warm enough to even wear slip dresses layered or not!
