All That Is Solid Melts Into Air

This is one of my most sweet and girlish dresses; it is reserved for days when I don't mind those adjectives being applied to me. The colors always remind me of ice cream and I'm melting like a bowl of that in this summer heat. I might ramble too much about the heat lately, but it is becoming the most significant character in this drama called my life. It's also the villain.

  2. Beautiful dress! And I'd say you look rather lady-like more than "cute."

  4. You look like liquorice! I agree with Joanna, it looks very ladylike; espacially when combined with the coat.

  6. I love it when that dress makes an appearance, though I also usually avoid overly "sweet and girly" things. I can't even look at that trench coat in this heat though!

  8. That dress is lovely, and I really like it paired with that coat. I like the softened colors, and how well they work for summer.

  9. I remember Sandra Beijer wearing this dress last year and thinking, man, that woman is absolutely adorable.

    You are equally lovely. You two create a special upper echelon of style.

  15. @Closet Cravings, the jacket was only layered here b/c that's what I tend to wear indoors--I get so cold in A/C! :)

  16. You look gorgeous in this dress. Our heart is also the protagonist and the villain of our life...we just have to know how to treat it though and it will behave like a good boy ;)

  20. why the post title? you do know it comes from the communist manifesto, right? it's a bit ridiculous to have it adorning a post with pictures of pretty clothes.

  21. @Anonymous, you don't like a touch of the ridiculous? I think it's ironic.

  22. So light and fun! I love beautiful dresses with sleeves...they are so easy to wear and a lot less body conscious for me :)

  24. Beautiful dress, Rebecca! I love the ice cream reference, because it does remind me of Neapolitan.
