Crimson And Clover


Climbing trees and attempting to get in a good position for a picture in the 10 second self-timer window is difficult. Perhaps I secretly like the trials, because I keep devising implausible places to take outfit pictures? I really do enjoy climbing trees although I haven't done it enough recently (and I would never normally attempt to do it in heels).

I recently received a sweet little package from Toujours Toi Family Affairs and my favorite item inside was this dress. From the front it is a simple, well-cut black dress, but then you turn around and there's this stunning and interesting back. The straps are adjustable and can be tied a number of ways, although I haven't really done much experimenting with them yet! I really look forward to wearing this piece a lot this summer when the days of sunshine and warmth arrive...or I hunt them down elsewhere.

This is my favorite cardigan in my closet and my mother keeps threatening to steal it from me because she likes it as well! Here's a few ways I've worn it in the past.

  8. Haha, I feel like I keep finding impossible places to attempt my outfit shots w/ the 10 second timer too. I refuse to buy a remote though.
    That dress looks so versatile, I can't wait to see how you remix it!

  15. Darling dress! I understand the timer thing..and I've got to find a good tree to climb so I can try that challenge, lol. Awhile back I took pix standing on the hoods of some of my dad's vintage vehicles, and climbed up in a skirt in heels in the ten second window, so I can relate! It was kind of a fun challenge though :D I see someone recommended a camera remote..hmmmmm..but then no thrill..haha

    Anyhow, you always have awesome pictures!

  21. Such a lovely tree! Pretty photos. I love that dress and especially that cardigan!

    ReplyDelete
  22. that dress is adorable! totally reminds me of a mullet... in a good way! "business in the front, party in the back" lol

    i definitely agree with the comment about getting a wireless remote. you can probably snatch one up for less than $20 (i think i paid about $16 for mine).

  23. Very pretty look!!! I want those shoes!

    ReplyDelete
  24. i think your fringe is the biz!

  27. Every time I see your tattoos it makes me itch for one so badly. I just have no idea what I would get...

    Love this dress! You are brave to climb trees in heels.

    ReplyDelete
  28. This is so beautiful. I love the color palette and especially the socks with the shoes.

    ReplyDelete
  29. yeah remotes are so worth their monet. mine was about £12. i love your braided hair, i really need to try that out.

    ReplyDelete
  30. Oh I love that cardigan!

    And haha I love that you can climb a tree and pose that fast. I recently got a remote because the self-timer seems to make me panic and freeze, but now I have to work on hiding it in my hand!

    ReplyDelete
  31. the cardigan is classic!
    you are simply stunning.
    i wish i could be half as stylish as you.

  32. totally gorgeous. the dress is perfect for your tattoos. I love it when I can find clothes that show off my tattoos.

    Love that cardigan. Makes me want to do a diy. You could so easily have TWO great cardigans like that! Give one to your best friend and bam! you could totally dork it up! (I don't know if you would, but I would!).

  34. Gosh, the back of the dress is really beautiful, perfect for your tattoos!

  35. That dress is amazing! I'm all for simple designs with surprise elements to them. In fact, if I was a designer that's what I'd do! :)

    ReplyDelete
  36. What a perfect dress! I'm curious to see what other ways the back can be styled now.

    ReplyDelete
  37. I love your cardigan! And my friend says her mother has shoes just like those, but that they're pretty uncomfortable.

    Oh, and it's good to hear someone else has problems with the ten second timer.

    ReplyDelete
  38. I never get tired of seeing that sweater! :-)

  39. I love that dress! Family Affairs make some lovely clothes :)

  40. I love that cardigan as well! I keep hoping Neneee will list more in her shop haha Also, I don't know if this is a strange question but what kinda bra do you wear with a dress like that? I have a few backless/cut out back dresses that I recently aquired and I'm having a hard time finding something to wear under it. I know Victoria's Secret has a 89073232 way thing but they don't carry it in stores and I'm hesitant to order it online without knowing if it would really be the right bra. Sorry if this is a weird question!

  41. be careful! don't scrape your knees! :)

  42. Gorgeous dress, I love that it is named Crimson and Clover because that is my favourite song ever.

    ReplyDelete
  43. i wanted to say that i love your blog,
    and i wore milkmaid braids today and everyone adored my hair at school,
    i must admit, i was initially inspired by maude (harold & maude), but your tutorial helped me master it
    my way of doing it was much more difficult...
    but today it worked swell, so thank you!

    ReplyDelete
  44. love this look! the dress is beautiful, and your hair is lovely!

    ReplyDelete
  45. That cardigan is mustard and olive. MUSTARD AND OLIVE! I must have it!

    Love the colour of the socks with those shoes.

    ReplyDelete
  46. I really like that shoe and sock combo you always wear. And that cardigan is simply amazing.

    ReplyDelete
  47. wow, tree climbing in heels WHILE trying to beat a self timer? I bet there are some really funny outtakes. that being said, I love the outfit. that cardigan is really neat and I like the dress!

    ReplyDelete
  48. The new dress is brilliant! Also love the sweater... I'm still scouring my local thrift shops to find two identical sweaters in different colors so I can chop-shop them and try a little DIY. Lovely post, as always!

    ReplyDelete
  49. I love those shoes but I'm scared one of these times your going to kill yourself trying to climb that tree in them!

    ReplyDelete
  50. Wow what a great LBD! I love that you paired it with unexpected colors. They work extremely well. (: and the tree-climbing looks fun! Haha
