Winged Insects and Honey-Gatherers Of The Mind


My glasses are making a rare blog appearance and my butterfly dress is making a less rare appearance. I've worn this dress so many times and I'm still not bored with it. It would be nice to find some more dresses with interesting prints; specifically a collection of insect printed clothes would be rather awesome. Also, how geek chic would an anatomically correct insect print be paired with my eyeglasses?

Outfit details:
Eight Sixty blazer via Gilt
ASOS dress
Seychelles booties
filigree ring via Gilt
Erica Weiner bracelets
self-mixed nail polish

Here's a few of the different ways I've worn this dress in the past.

  1. You look like the foxiest academic that ever strolled through a library.
    I adore the colours in here! The green tights & red-brown shoes echoed in the dress - it's almost too good!

  9. every time you wear this dress i am very sad i don't own it! i agree with you- there should be many more insect print dresses! and the more scientifically accurate, the better. i love how you've styled it with the blazer and jacket here. ~joelle

  10. I love your look in the glasses. Hope to see you in them in future blog posts. Just realized somehthing about your style, your mix of colors. The tights don't really match the blazer, but go amazingly with the color of the shoes. Your colorplay is subtle, but potent. Lovely, as ever.

  25. Love to see your butterfly dress make an another appearance Rebecca! I love butterfly prints because I am a closet (or not so closet I guess) Nabokov fan/obsessee. I also think your glasses look great! You should wear them with your super cool fly shirt next time. I still remember that as seriously the coolest insect-printed piece of clothing I've ever seen!

  66. This dress is one of my favourites of yours! Glad to see it make another appearance. And styled so gorgeously as well.

    ReplyDelete
  67. This is probably one of the best outfits I've seen on you in awhile, including the glasses. It has a very Mad-Men-esque vibe about it, but with, of course, many modern details. I love that you wear your glasses here. It's definitely a departure from your normal shoots.

    And I just love other women in glasses, I do.

  68. im in love with your dress, its so classy and lovely on you.
