Now that I have put together an outfit, I want to keep the dress. Am I too old to wear this clingy dress?
My kitties thought I was acting silly, running around the yard with a chair and my camera at 6 am taking photos. But the cool morning temps are such a blessing here. I thought I would get out and enjoy my yard for once. The lighting was perfect for showing off this dress.
Another problem I often experience is with shoulder straps falling down. But this dress was so far perfect. It's really hard to give up a dress that not only fits great without additional tailoring, but also looks so darn good. I spent hours working on the last two dresses I ordered. Something I don't really mind doing if I have the time.
You can see the results of my handy dandy tailoring with the Graphical Dress by Edme and Esyllte here.
And another outfit for the Graphical Dress here.
|Vintage Inspired Peep Toes in Sky - by Frye Shoe Company (the oldest Shoe Co in the US) - Zappos - not on sale $170 - Apr 2009|
|Toasted Meringue Cuff - by Lee Angel - Anthro - was $198, sale $99 - Mar 2010|
|Kaitlyn Straw Cloche - custom made by Mary Ann Koch Milliner - Couture Creations $145|
I love how this arrived in a hat box, with a little signed Thank You card from the Milliner. My Anthro hat arrived crushed in a delivery box. Even better was a 20% off card for my next hat. Which I used for a beautiful Turquoise Wool Cloche I am sure I will show you come Fall Winter.
You can order the Kaitlyn here. Plus even more hats. Most of which you can pick and choose from colorful Vintage Stock to your hearts content.
