Fluke dressing


Never thought we could dress like this in January…



Jacket: Vintage (this and this one works too). Dress: Thrift. Boots: Jeffrey Campbell. Shades: Ray Ban. Bag: Balenciaga. Bangle: JewelMint. Small cross necklace: Jennifer Zeuner.  Orange lipstick: Mac ‘So Chaud’

Honestly it was mild enough last weekend Saturday to wear this dress.  The trick with floral print dresses is to go for a small or a faded print so it gives a vintage-like feel even if it isn’t (found this alternative too). That’s what I look for.

The boxy shaped jacket balances out the fullness in the dress (jacket seen before here with shorts). Check above for a couple more jackets that would also work if you’re into adding a bit of casual sparkle into your wardrobe.

For some more help on wearing dresses in winter have a peak at the how to video (long term readers know about it already).  I’m working on more….
