Whenever I put this dress on I think "Why don't I wear this more often?" Then after a few hours, I start to get itchy because the dress is 100% wool and it's unlined. I need to remember to wear a camisole underneath it.
Jacket: Le Chateau
Dress: Diane Von Furstenburg from NYC
Shoes: Fluevog Together Hi | Benatar
As with many dresses, the waist sits about 5 cms above my natural waist so I do find that a little annoying. But despite that and the itchiness I won't be giving it up. It has pocket and it's twirly!
I think that the next time I wear this dress I will wear less chunky shoes; maybe wear my Franco Sarto shoes or my new Desigual shoes.
I've been thinking about some of the new fashions that are trendy this spring and there's a few that I won't be adopting. These include:
1. Boat Shoes/Topsiders - a staple in the 1980s with any good Preppy teens wardrobe along with Bass Weejun Penny Loafers and Tretorn sneakers.
2. Patterned pants - especially ones made of floral fabric (tartan and stripes are the exceptions)
3. Fancy nail polish designs - I can't stand the way nail polish feels on my finger nails. I do think the designs look pretty though.
4. Mega Platforms - because of the ugly. (this also includes about 99% of Jeffrey Campbell's designs)
One I thought I'd stay away from is the resurgence of neon but I find myself really wanting a pair of neon heels.
Any trends you will be avoiding?
