I’m Feeling That All The Things We Are Is Enough

Category: My OutfitsEyeliah @ 12:00 pm

When I joined ebay in 2004 this dress was one of the first items I ever bought, it’s from jumblelaya. And now is the first time I’ve ever worn it! I know that is ridiculous, I had thought it was more true red so when it arrived this orange shade I felt unable to rock it. Flash forward five years and it may become a new staple. It’s cotton, has a fancy lace cut out hem and has hip pockets.

What do you think, do you like it or is it a bit much?

    I like it. I fear that the length would make me look shorter, but it actually makes you look tall and sleek. Don’t fear color, ever!

    I like voting in polls! those bottom bits are amazing. It’s a hard colour to pull off. I’m a bit fearful of orange too. You look lovely though.

    If it weren’t for the lovely lace detailing… I’d say have it shortened to slightly above the knee or perhaps the lace could be salvaged somehow… I think it adds a nice pop of color, and reminds me of a shirt dress with an extra vintage touch, very lovely 🙂 The black tights/black shoe combo, as tempting as it may be in the Halloween spirit, strikes me as a little costumey which takes away from the delicate vintage feel. The necklaces are right on beautiful layering!

    Dearilou: thanks! A shorter length (and less billowy top) would make me happy.
    Charlie: glad I’m not the only one who gets nervous for orange.
    Hannele: yes, I thought about hemming but the hem is the best part. The dress is more of an orange red though so I don’t look like a pumpkin…. I think maybe mustard sandals could look better though, god call.

    Yeah, you don’t want to lose the hem! And anyway, it’s got pockets, and that always trumps any flaws a dress or a skirt may have – pockets are just that awesome! 😀

    Oh! I absolutely LOVE this on you! The colour goes great with your dark hair and fair complexion and it just a genrally really awesome dress, actually!

    I really like the dress and think the lace hem looks great against the black background of the boots; but not sure about the red belt . . . (I think I’d prefer either a black, white, metal or natural leather belt. Or maybe even turquoise(?) to match the one necklace. Sorry.) This is a great, subtle outfit to wear for the last work day before Halloween.

    I love it, that hem is amazing! Isn’t it funny how some articles of clothing just need to marinate in our closets before we are ready for them 🙂

    i like the details, the color, but although you totally pull it off, i would prefer something more fitted but it looks great with the belt!
