Daily Wear: Here Comes Your Man
I stepped into this flirty, feminine little dress today with that girl's shock at me being a girl still stuck in my brain. I thought to myself, (while humming "Here Comes Your Man")....TAKE THAT GIRL! Who's the Man NOW? I Certainly Am NOT!
Heck yeah....this dress can make anyone feel super girly...its frilly, likes to blow up much to my dismay when a breeze comes along, and its just uber fun! All the things that a dress should be!
It's kinda of funny when you know that I tried to wear this on Sunday. I walked my bike to the bike shop to get the tire fixed (yep, 3rd flat tire in a little over a year, and I've only ridden it twice! thanks again Topshop and Chictopia....you rule at giving away awesome prizes!--sarcasm btw) and by the time I got there I was getting all hot and sweaty right where I belted it...ewwww, no thanks!
I came home after the bike shop and promptly put on my cut-offs and a tank top (boring weekend style,but much more comfy for the heat, humdity and later on, RAIN).
Sooooooo......since I only kinda wore it for less than an hour on Sunday I thought today would be the perfect day to try again. I was looking to gain back my girly status after yesterday's masculine look, and it was really the dose of cuteness I was lacking in the past few days' attire. It worked out swimmingly this time around-no hot outdoor activity, just me-my desk-and some office cold-ass Air Conditioning! (A.K.A. no sweat rings where the belt is--ewwww again)
Besides loving the dress for its Black/White pallate which I'm very very fond of for summer attire; I also really love the hemline of the dress. The printed top layer skirt does a little high-low action, higher on the sides-letting the black underlayer peek out. Oh and don't even get me started on the fullness of the skirt-so darling at its length, I felt like twirling around and flipping it with my arms as I hit my stride across the concrete jungle. (Ok, not going to lie, I did walk with extra flippiness in my arm swing today...its just something with this dress, pretty sure it was almost necessary that I kinda kick it up and flip it around as I swung my arms, no?)
And of course, with any black/white ensemble its perfect to pair it with a pop of color somewhere along the lines. So in with the accessory and the burst of color! (Thanks again Coach, I do love my Poppy bag)
Oh and speaking of accessories, just how many of you have this octopus in some form of jewelry somewhere in your stash? I think everyone and their mother owns this octopus--shoot, I've got him in a pair of earrings too!
