I’ve had this printed dress for about 12 years, but its first wearing was about three years ago. In addition to featuring a very loud and bright print, it’s absolutely skin tight AND fairly low cut, so I struggled to find ways to wear it. Once I figured out that I could layer a duster over it and pin shut the neckline, it finally got some wear.

This is the first time that it’s been paired with this particular cardigan, and I felt the wedge boots were ideal for this funky-futuristic look.

    Very cute! A black camisole would look good underneath the dress too.

    such a happy floral, can’t believe you’ve had it so long & it’s still so bright and cheery.

    I wear colored sport bras under low-cut dresses to make them more appropriate. I put them on over my regular bra so I get the shaping and support but don’t have to put up with a full underlayer like a tank/cami or slip.

    I like the print on the dress and would never have guessed that the neckline was pinned…that’s a styling task I still need to master. Does the dress have long or short sleeves? I’m beginning to grow self-conscious about my upper arms.

    I’ve got a similar dress and I will try and wear it with something black on top. I also like how the tights make it complete.

    Love the dress and how the outfit comes together. Reminds me a bit of Desigual designes. Wish they came in plus… But back to you, looking great Sally. As usual, enjoying your blog immensly. Day off here in Uruguay (May Day), so catching up. Chau y cheers, María

    Fantastic look for you. You styled it just right with the sweater, tights and boots. This dress length makes you look taller. Isn’t it amazing what certain clothing can do for a gal.

    Bad ASS! I can’t believe you’ve had that dress so long; it looks totally current.
