(A few people asked me about the comment I made on yesterday's post about "my list of purchases". When you buy stuff on Etsy, it records it in your "Purchases" so I can see everything I've ever bought on that site. I don't record all my purchases in a spreadsheet.)
Here's a dress that I found in my "off season" closet when I was swapping out my spring clothes for my winter things. It's another Etsy purchase (October 2008).
The top of the dress is jersey fabric but the skirt is a weird microfibre/faux suede fabric that picks up cat hair like crazy.
The accents are a red/white gingham.
Dress: Etsy store idea2lifestyle
Fishnets: Sock it to Ya (local store)
Shoes: Cydwoq (from San Francisco)
One thing I find confusing about this dress is I don't know what is the front or the back. Nor do I know if it matters. This morning I put it on both ways and this way seemed the best.
The side of the skirt has a cord in it so you can gather it up a bit to show the underskirt. Sassy!
What else is sassy? Fishnets with red seams! Work appropriate? Sure! Why the heck not.
I like how the fishnets and the gingham squares complement each other.
