Speak

I'm not a big talker. I allow my outfits to announce my entrance, both metaphorically and literally. This outfit is one of my noisier creations. The dress rustles and the bracelets and heels clackety-clack.


Dress, Merona. Belt, Ozzy and Deena. Shoes, thrifted (no label). Bag, vintage. Cuff, Target. Watch, Raymond Weil. Bamboo bracelets, Garden of the Gods gift shop.

Glad you included close ups of the belt and shoes. Would have missed the texture of the shoes otherwise...and it's fun to see those peacock patterns. Love the those peacock feather accessories, even if the birds are "dirty, nasty and mean."

Gosh, that dress is lovely. Such a great colour on you!

I have been looking for brown shoes endlessly! Why are they so hard to find?

How do people react when you wear noisy clothes or accessories?

That belt is amazing! I considered that dress when my Target had it, but didn't even try it on. Now I'm regretting that decision.

I LOVE THE PEACOCK BELT!!!

C said...

you are getting really conservative...I would probably wear that outfit...it is mostly purple (love purple) and all the accessories match! Usually you have a few color combos that I have never seen before and that I need to think about to even comprehend.

I love the color of that dress. Its quite an announcement in and of itself. As for sound, I have a skirt with beaded fringe and I love the sound it makes when I walk. It definitely announces (or perhaps warns people of) my arrival.

Sheila, people say things like: "I THOUGHT that was YOU coming around the corner/down the stairs." I just smile and nod.

I'm well known for my clicky-clack heels.

The belt is perfection with that dress. I love the matching bag and shoes.

Buddy,
I really like this outfit!

C Lo said...

Every time you wear this dress I kick myself for not getting it.

Rose said...

What a great color, but I especially love the belt! Nice!

Carolyn said...

I love that dress! I tried it on when it was in stores, but it was too short/cleavagey on me. It's such a nice color and shape on you-- I'm jealous!

Sarah said...

Magnificent! That belt is out of this world beautiful!!!! Love the shoes and the bag. I think this is one of my favorite of your outfits.

Victoria said...

That belt is so pretty.

Kerry said...

Ouch, my retinas! Love that colour. I also like how your shoes match not only your bag, but your hair. :)

Celynne said...
