Well hello there! It's your friendly neighborhood Katie here! It has been quite awhile since I received a swap item, and it was so exciting to find this little number in the mail from our resident layering genius, Marlen! I wasn't expecting the dress to be so incredibly soft. I wanted to float away on a cloud I'm telling you it was that soft! The pattern of this fabric is so beautiful I didn't have the heart to cover it up. So I simply went with my instincts and paired this polka dotted red blouse underneath. I've been wearing this blouse with everything this summer because it's one of the few short sleeved vintage tops I have. I love the billowy-ness of the sleeves though, it adds such a feminine touch.
I decided to accessorize with black (yet again). It's becoming a trend for me to accessorize an outfit with all black touches. I just love how it pulls a look together and adds an element of edge to an otherwise sugary-sweet outfit. Plus the pattern of the dress had black in it, so it was a no-brainer really. What's something you always turn to while accessorizing? A favorite bag perhaps, or a hat for those days you just really don't want to shower (is that just me...) ?
Here is how Marlen flawlessly styled this little number. I love that she always transforms a garment into something new! I would have thought this was just a cute tank top, and lo and behold it's a dress! LOVE. Original post here. :)
Have a good one Lovelies!
