Daily Outfit: 8/24/10

Dress, thrifted
Shoes, John Fluevog
Pearl bracelets, self-made

Simple, fun … and a complete repeat. I can’t remember the last time I wore this dress, but when I did, it was with these exact shoes and these exact bracelets. Today I wanted an outfit that included sleeves, closed-toed shoes, and a washable top. And thus, a pre-tested outfit got worn again.

Pretty sure this dress was handmade as a theater costume. When I bought it, the only “tag” was a piece of masking tape that said “Laura” stuck to the inside of the collar. (I think it was “Laura” …)


Gotta love photos at sunset. Believe me, my hair is NOT that red without gobs of sunlight streaming through it.

    That dress looks like it was absolutely MADE just for you. I love the cutout neckline on it, that adds just a bit of whimsy to the otherwise simple shape.

    I LOVE this outfit on you, Sally. It makes a strong, clean and simple statement – my favourite types of outfits! The sleeve length is very flattering and the polka dots (are they dots?) are close to my heart. Fab shoes too! Very 40’s inspired and you wear that look well.

  • Emma at Daily Clothes Fix

    Beautiful dress in beautiful light. I love the fact that it could have been a costume in a previous life. I love considering the history of a piece and where it came from.

  • Laura

    Hey, you stole my dress! πŸ˜‰ Looks lovely on you.

    I thought of you today when I tried on a pair of Tsubos, which I'd never heard of before your blog. They were a half-size too small but I definitely see the appearl.
