First In Flight

This dress is like a retro flight attendant uniform and thus impossible for me to resist, especially in such a punchy color. In case you missed the memo: I am a color addict (bright colors, off-beat colors, saturated and faded hues, they draw me like a bee to honey). Pairing the vibrant blue with peachy hues, mustard yellow, and some brown just seemed like such a wonderful mix of shades. Once again, I also seem to be reflecting my surroundings; brightly hued ocean in the sun and sea grasses turning more golden with fall.

*The dress came with a large white bow which I removed; it was very cute, but I think the dress is more versatile without it; it was very easy to remove with a seam-ripper.

Outfit details:
thrifted scarf
Cheap Monday sunglasses
Deux Lux purse
OPI nail polish

  5. I always find that depending on where I'm going to take blog pictures, that will define what I'm wearing. Totally subconsciously! I guess certain places remind me of certain outfits and I tend to lean towards them every time! haha Weird how much your surroundings influence you.

  18. You've walked right out of a 60's movie.

    If you're ever clearing out your closet, may I have first dibs on your clothing before you post it to the store?

    I think we're the same size. (size 2-4, petite 5' - 5'3").

    Pretty please?

    You're wearing the most alluring colour combo... It's ... so beachy and summery, which I need in my life.

    Absolutely stunning. (AND NOT COLD????)

  24. Oh you look fab and that dress is so retro and lovely! I am a little envious that you're not wearing many layers in these photos. I'm literally wearing as many as possible at the moment!

  26. Totally adorable! Now tell me... how do you manage to keep that head scarf secure and on your head. I always seem to have mine slipping off if I don't tie it closer to my hair line. Do you have sneaky secret bobby pins?

    ReplyDelete
  27. @Rebeccak, Yes, absolutely! Bobby pins are totally necessary (for me at least). Usually just two right behind my ears. :)

  29. The shape of this dress is superior! I adore the color and yeah...how it goes wonderfully with your red hair. I think I might have to search out a similar fitted sheath, now...

  33. This dress is beautiful! It reminds me of an old custom-made dress of my grandmother's that I have somewhere in the back of my closet. I've been checking your blog for the last week or so, and I love it. Where in Virginia are you? I'm in Virginia Beach, so I was just wondering because of your beachy photos. It would be neat to know there's another style blogger around here!
