Shattered Water Made A Misty Din

When I saw a detail shot of this print on Modcloth, I knew the "When Doves Fly" dress had to be mine. It is like some sort of compulsion to automatically desire patterns with birds. Luckily, I was one of the fortunate few to snag it, as the dress is now sold out. It is a perfect summer dress; the print keeps the basic shape from being boring. You can request to be notified on re-stock of the dress since they are bringing it back. I have placed myself on the restock list for a certain horse print dress...

I felt the dress paired with my new flats would be a cool Pop Art-ish outfit and would inflect some much needed color into my daily routine. These flats have quickly become the most comfortable shoes in my humble collection; which makes me question my sanity in wearing heels so much lately. I might just have been converted back into a regular flats wearer. They are better "adventure" shoes than heeled clogs for a windy day down by Puget Sound where the waves were tumultuous and the shore was littered with the bodies of tiny jellyfish...

  7. Haha. I still recall a time when you wore flats in your daily outfit posts to wardrobe_remix Rebecca, and I have noticed a shift to heels as of late. But no worries, you look good in both, and I think no matter how much you wear those fierce shoes you will always still go back to the comfort and charm of flats (as I do!).

    PS: That is indeed a lovely dress.(:

  10. i love bird prints too, so i am putting myself on the list for this dress when it re-stocks! the dress is gorgeous on you. i like how your outfit coordinates with YOU- the little bit of color on the shoes matches your hair, and your lipstick coordinates with the hints of red in the dress. ~joelle

  19. Cute dress and overall outfit. The scenery is nice but would be even better if the horizons were straight.

  20. SO FRESH! And so clean, clean lol

  22. I love that your dress is named after a Prince song! I just spent (wasted?) many hours watching Prince songs and thinking how amazing he looks in every single one of them. And yay for wearing flats! Yours are so darling you should wear them all the time.

    do you know where i can get matte ones in different colors??

  29. This dress is too cute! And the little pops of red on your flats just make this even better. xo.

  30. How sweet is that print! Great "pop" effect with the shoes... and what a beautiful landscape...

    ReplyDelete
  31. Ohh, what a wonderful dress! I love the little doves and the hearts. That scarf is also pretty wonderful.

  32. this dress is so pretty! such a great print!

  33. I have a compulsion to buy things with twig/tree patterns on them, or are made of reclaimed wood.

    Wood iPod/iPhone dock/alarm clock. Wood Radio. Wood stool made out of solid log...

    It's just certain things that draw us. Birds are a symbol of your character, your moral compass and moral purity (for which I admire you), and your innocence, that you can find charm and lovely elements in simple and beautiful places/things that brings you untainted, unfettered joy. Most of us are so complicated we can't embrace those things.

    Or maybe you just like cute birds. :)

  76. I simply love the first and the eighth photo or the 7th, depending on if you count the little animated photo thingy or not. The beautiful surroundings with you in it in your whimsical outfits is just other worldly. I often do not know what to say...but just stare at them.
