The photo has a weird colour cast to it which doesn't appear when viewed in my editing software, so I have no idea what that's about, but anyway, here's the outfit. The greyish-green dress/tunic was a spontaneous purchase off the half price rack at my favourite retail store here in London - it's by a Danish company called Nu, and the fabric feels like heavy silk even though it's Tencel. The only size left was large, and it was too big for me, but when I put it on, it just felt really good. I layered it over my "burlesque" leggings and topped it off with a thrifted, 1980's, soft-as-butter, leather vest. The outfit felt very good to wear but when I look at it objectively, I realize it pretty much obliterates any shape my body has, and yet, I still love it....hmmmmmm. What's that about?
Here you can see the dress has panels of cotton knit fabric inset along the sides and back, and there is a pattern printed on the leather vest. I'm wearing the bone tribal earrings that Krista gifted me when I was visiting her in Portland - they've become one of my favourite accessories. This is also a good view of my recently coloured, cut and shaved hair. I was getting a bit tired of the orange and pink so we'll see how long I like having it one solid colour.
This closeup shows the embroidery on the shoulders of the dress, and the detail of my zipper necklace, which I've had for years, and was perfect with the outfit - the cream of the necklace, earrings and stripes in the leggings all tied together.
I purchased these Fly suede wedges last summer, and they are very comfortable, even for my finicky feet. I've always liked shoes with ankle straps (they're hidden under the leggings). I liked the style so much that I purchased another pair in red later in the fall.
