green silk dress

Photobucket

Almost one whole month into Autumn (I know, I sound obsessed!) and we had a cooler, cloudy day. I got this 1960s dress from etsy about a year ago, and it was a staple all last winter. In fact, so were these shoes. And now I am enjoying them again – and that feels good.

For some reason, I always feel the cold here on my legs. I would go through London winters in knee high boots, knee length skirts and bare legs and not give it a second thought, but here? Must be the dry air here... anyway, I am going to enjoy bare legs for now. And was it listening to Fleetwood Mac and Black Sabbath that made me mani-pedi in black?

Thank you so much for your comments on my dress form – and all the wonderful name ideas! We are clearly thinking alike :) I am leaning towards one or two, and she's about to tell me.

Oh gosh, you're not wrong about Sportsgirl's black nail polish.
I literally searched far and wide to find a decent black, most of the more expensive brands do a pretty shit version, if I do say so myself.
Great blog, you have really ecclectic style which is nice.

Those amazing shoes toughen up the decidedly feminine dress. Such a great juxtaposition.

I don't think anyone could blame you at all for looking good in that outfit as well as for having it as it is so beautiful! That's a double good reason for being obsessed with it.

Dear, I hardly recognized you, usually you look so sweet, but here, you look dangerous.

In a good way though :) and it's very good choice for the season

Monica said...

Wow!!! You look great in all of those pictures! Also very good photography!!!

Lynn said...

So here I am catching up a bit. I realize this post is older, but not too late to comment and say how pretty you look in these pictures! Love the wood and lace details of the furniture captured in this too. Love the straight black hair, the green dress. Very nice pictures. You look a bit edgy but still your sweet self! That's a compliment, by the way, just so you know. ;)
