Oh, fancy-pantsy green plaid dress that I’ve had for years and loved for all of those years. You taught me a lot about yourself when I wore you to Flight of Fashion a few weeks back. You taught me that with a low enough neckline and a properly applied sticky-cup bra, I actually CAN achieve cleavage. You taught me that more dresses really should have sleeves. And, sadly, you taught me that you kinda need to be taken in at the shoulders and bodice a bit to fit properly now. And than you wrinkle immediately. As in I look at you and you get wrinkly.
I’m still gonna love you. But I think I’ll love you more once my tailor has had a go at you …
Wore this for a VERY busy day working at Corset, and had to lose the jacket for at least part of my shift. Also regretted the tights, but didn’t have time to take them off! Spring transitional weather can be absolutely confounding. I do try to follow my own advice for making seasonal transitions seamless, but when it’s totally freezing in the morning sheer patterned tights just seem ludicrous. And by afternoon I’m melting.
Anyone else fighting with shifting weather? Any sneaky layering tips to share?
I’m doing it. I’m piling a bunch of snow-weather outfits into one post because the snow is now gone and I don’t want these to go unposted. And doing this is TOTALLY going to make it snow. Possibly as soon as tomorrow. I can’t even help how evil I am.
I feel like I’ve worn a lot of black lately, so I hesitated to post this outfit on its own … but I really did love working the rich burgundy from the scarf print back in through the tights. And this Karen Kane dress is proving to be a workhorse. So nice to have a super basic, comfy black dress with sleeves!
I hit a handful of charity shops during the UK trip last fall, but didn’t end up finding much. I’ve got a gorgeous L.K. Bennet skirt that’s too light colored and lightweight to wear yet, and this adorable star-print tunic. I wore it in a very similar mix a few months back, but like it SO much better with the addition of the like-colored belt.
Wore this for a shift at Corset before I finally admitted that any heel at all was going to make me a grouchy, limping mess by the end of the day. These boots are amazingly comfy, but I am in constant motion at the boutique, so it’ll be flats from now on! If I remember right, the day I wore this leather skirt to work my boss wore her leather pants. So, ya know, love that.

Now let the April snow begin! MUAH HA HAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA.
