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!

    The under-performance of the film cartier replica, directed by Louis Leterrier and starring Edward Norton, left the prospect of a sequel uncertain. However, Gale Anne Hurd, who produced both movies recently told MTV that she aims to make another one rolex datejust replica that would see Norton return to the role.
