Sixties Sherlock

 Here's a dress originally meant for Samson's Bean, but I decided to keep it for myself.
For now, at least. I'm prone to changing my mind when it comes to wardrobe choices.
Although, I do love everything about it. 
The dress also has the tiniest of burn holes, I'm sure that makes it virtually impossible to sell. 
That's my story and I'm sticking to it!

I cinched in my waist with my favorite taupe snakeskin belt, thrifted of course.
Topping it all off with my trusty trench, I called it a day.
 I haven't worn a dress in quite some time, so it felt nice to put in the extra effort.
That same day I did a booth update and lounged around at my parent's place.
Thus, the change in scenery. This was taken near the kitchen, I had to crop out the fridge!

 This same day, I met The Boy's parents. What a great day to decide to dress up!
I think I made a good first impression. I mean, mom complimented my shoes!
I will take that to be a good sign.

2011 is turning out to be quite a splendid year!
There's so much to be excited about.

Until next time, ♥.

What an adorable outfit perfectly styled up! I think this is a great outfit for meeting a significant other's parents.

I love that dress so much!! You wore it well:)

p.s. I'm so jealous you found that trench at Goodwill! I've been on the lookout for a good quality trench...that fits. I find them, but they're either huge or tiny. You found a great one!

Adorable, honestly. I love when trench coats are paired with dresses that are a liiittlllleee bit shorter, I think the proportion is just so chic. And ahh meeting parents can be so nerve-wracking but you were certainly dressed to impress and i'm sure you made such a lovely impression :)

The dress is such a nice colour and I think your story is a good enough justification of keeping the dress :)

That is a gorgeous dress! You should not sell that. :)
