Base Layer

Sweater, City Fur Co (vintage). Top, Moda International. Strapless dress, Newport News. Boots, Nine West. Necklace, thrifted. Clutch (pictured below), thrifted. Feathered headband, Forever 21.

This simple, strapless sheath from Newport News has been worn a lot, but I’ve never taken a picture of it alone until today. It’s a bit formfitting to wear on its own, but it makes a perfect base for subsequent layers. It’s a neutral color, doesn’t contribute much bulk, and provides a nice, slim silhouette for my bottom half.










Um…yeah, those are my bra straps in the first photo. Sorry. And you can check out the back of the black top here.

All the ways I’ve worn this dress…

(And it only cost $15!)

To say you've gotten your money's worth out of this dress would be quite the understatement - and it looks great in all its different forms too; I really like today's.

Cat said...

I COVET that vintage fur sweater. It screams bombshell. That dress is incredibly useful. Did you originally buy it as a layering piece, or did you intend to wear it alone?

Kasmira said...

Cat - I bought the dress with the intention of wearing shirts UNDERNEATH of it. But that look was too body conscious for me.

The dress looks different in every outfit, that's what I love about it. And I agree with Cat, the fur makes it fabulous and totally bombshell.

I love the fur and the headband - so very daytime-chic. The dress is fabulous. I always thought it was a skirt - who da thunk it? I agree - you've definitely gotten your money's worth on it!

This day's look and Hippie Dippie is my favourite. The fur gives you a vintage glam look. Uber pretty!

Aha! My dresses always get such little wear because I forget I can layer stuff on them. Thanks for the reminder. Love the look today (or that day as it was...).

Lila said...
