Short, Black, and Sparkly

One of these days, I’m going to get a picture of this sequin-covered dress in good light. Last time, we were foiled by the early winter sunset. This time, a storm darkened the skies. I risked my blue suede booties (and ruined my hairdo) to bring you these poorly lit photos.


Dress, Lillie Rubin (thrifted). Booties, Sigerson Morrison for Target. Earrings, Claire’s. Bag, Carlos Santana.

I guess I’ll just have to wear it again. In the blazing daylight.



Later in the evening, I realized that the straps go on the outside of the shoulder, not on top.

That dress is gorgeous! The blue booties are the perfect match to keep the dress edgy and modern.

Mariquita,
Amazing look! Actually I've seen similar necklines worn both w/wo the straps.

Fab outfit! And they aren't bad photos at all (although I do appreciate you risking your hair and shoes to bring them to us :)

Be still my beating heart look at those blue suede boots. Wow!

Laura said...

Love it! Where did you go dressed so divinely?

I kind of like with the straps up - it's 80s... and I mean that in a good way! I almost bought a wedding dress with a similar neckline, but my mother refused to let me if I was going to go through with my plan to leave the straps on the shoulder. I fretted and fussed with them off the shoulder, so I gave it a pass.

That dress is awesome, and if that is bad light I can't imagine what it will look like in good light.

You look mahhhvelous Dahhling!
Faboo dress and it was worth the peek (to us, anyway ;)
I think my wiglet would have been a bit too slutty with this gorgeous dress, but you always look appropriately stunning.
( maybe i could use lessons, though i use your words of wisdom when buying jackets now- u gave me a waist!)

As a burlesque dancer, I whole-heartedly approve of your use of sequins and awesome shoes.
