Dressed for: Edgy Retro

Already Pretty outfit featuring brown shirtdress, studded belt, leopard print shoes, onyx necklace, Nixon tortoiseshell watch

Dress, Land’s End (no longer available) – similar color/details, similar cut
Belt, a boutique in San Francisco – similar
Leopard pumps – Anne Klein Watchit
Necklace, puffluna
Earrings, HSokol
Bracelet, Quincesimilar
Watch, Nixon Time Teller

Ahhh, the return of the shirtdress. Since I have this dress in multiple colors and they’ve all been with me multiple years, I’m challenged to find new ways to wear them. In this case, I wanted to play up the retro feel of the frock by adding ladylike pumps and a classic watch, then threw the studded belt into the mix for a bit of edge.

P.S. Don’t forget to swing by FinnStyle tomorrow evening for the Marimekko event!

  • I love this. I wear a lot of vintage dresses and sometimes struggle to find a way to style them in ways other than “ladylike”. The addition of the studded belt and the leopard pumps is just brilliant. I’m going to have to keep this in mind!

  • Ooh such a cute look. I totally equate shirtdresses with “Sally” now. They’re so versatile and I think you always do a good job styling them, either ladylike or punky!

    You look adorable. The studded belt is a nice touch. This silhouette is one of the best I’ve seen on you. 🙂

    I straight up stole this look and wore it today. I love it! I’ve already gotten compliments about how great the studded belt is with the shirtdress. 🙂

    Thank you for inspiring me (in this and everything else)!

    I spotted this picture in the American Libraries e-newsletter from July 25. Link lead to article at Hiring Librarians. (I think it would make a great interview outfit, btw). http://hiringlibrarians.com/2012/07/20/further-questions-what-should-candidates-wear/
