Minimalism...

Dress: ASOS     Top (underneath): Ladakh     Shoes: Mollini     Bag: Wayne Cooper


Well, for me, this is minimalism.

First of all, I should mention this is a dress layered over a top. The peter pan collar is the only thing showing from the top. I had tried to figure out how I could get more wear out of each piece before I figured out that they layer together perfectly!

If you’re thinking, geez that dress is a bit short. That’s because it is… I saw it on ASOS in the regular length and when I finally decided I wanted it, it was sold out in my size. That of course made me decide I wanted it even more! So I bought it in petite (recommended for people two inches shorter than I am, and below). Of course, within a day of my order, the regular length came back in stock (sigh) and it was already too late to change. It is really short, like bum skimming, but I think it looks respectable with tights on.

Paired with my new (favourite) bag, burgandy tights and chunky maroon shoes for a simple, vintage inspired look. Saying that though, this may in fact be my very first outfit post where I'm not wearing any vintage... Go figure!

  4. I really love this blouse and dress pairing, it works incredibly well. When I scrolled down to see the red tights though, I found them to be a really unexpected touch but I can't get over how put-together this entire outfit looks! Love everything about it!

  16. You put this together perfectly! It makes your legs look a million miles long. And if you are really worried about the length, you could layer it over a crinoline. That could be a really fun look!
