Good news: when I picked out clothes for my limited closet space, I brought a bunch of warm weather dresses!
Bad news: a dress is an entire outfit, so once worn, I feel like I can't wear it on the blog again for a while. I haven't featured this dress on the blog since-holy crap-almost exactly a year ago though, so I guess it is okay.
Dress: OzzOn Japan (secondhand, Japan)
Cropped blazer: Isaac Mizrahi for Target (thrifted)
Tensha bead earrings: The Thorn & Rose (etsy)
Bracelet: Foreign Exchange (old)
Sandals: Fitzwell (6pm.com)
It's not showing much, but I'm also wearing a perfectly-sized racerback underdress that's the same shade and that conveniently covers any gaps in the hem that might flash too much thigh.
It also enabled me, while attending my friend Athena's wedding, to take the dress off in the parking lot and offer it to a near-stranger who was admiring it so she could try it on. Alcohol was definitely involved.
Athena, incidentally, was the very one who introduced me to this brand! The day we met, I noticed two things about her: first, she was intelligent and outspoken (three things?), specifically on the topic of an awful textbook that had been required reading for one of our introductory courses, and second, that she was wearing a jacket that was sweeeeet beyond all recognition.
I complimented her jacket and introduced myself in the ladies room. And the rest, as they say, is history. :D
