    Gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous! But especially those shoes – that is the perfect shape for high heels!

    • mtsedwards says:

      Aw, thanks, Val! And the shoes were such a find on eBay. Can’t believe someone actually willingly let these beauties go! Lucky me.

  2. I actually almost wore a kimono today. How funny is that!? You look lovely in yours.

    • mtsedwards says:

      Yes! Great minds and all that, eh? Now that I’ve put a bug in your ear, so to speak, I can’t wait to see if your kimono makes an appearance soon.

  3. This would be a super cute and fun look for my office. I want a kimono like that and have been searching for the perfect one!

  4. I’ve been eyeing kimonos for awhile now…love how you styled yours with the dress. I just might have to pick one up.

    • mtsedwards says:

      So funny because I have scads of kimonos (I’m a huge Nipponophile) but never knew how to style it. This was a purely spontaneous addition to the dress because I liked the blues together and apparently, I’ve hit jackpot. ;p

    Always been a fan of kimonos, kaftans and any kind of clothing that incorporates beautiful embroidery or fabrics like cheongsam and sari. I also love the wide sleeves that are characteristic of them – and it’s true they’re very good for layering. Love the way yours is fitted at the waist – that’s quite unique and the shoes match so well with the little Green tips!

    The dress is adorable, love the pleated overlay! Perfectly matched with the multi-necklace(s). Very classy outfit indeed 😀

    • dapperdolly says:

      Forgot to say – love the hair! Really noticeable in this post but been meaning to say and kept forgetting! Frames your face so nicely!

      • mtsedwards says:

        I had just gotten my hair cut that day when I decided to do my photo shoot (long weekend so plenty of time) and the opportunity to show off a professional cut and style was too good to pass up. Also the reason none of my outfits so far feature that 20s accessory, the cloche, even though I own 3! ;p

    • mtsedwards says:

      You leave the most thoughtful and smile-inducing comments! You notice the little details, like the way I deliberately chose the blue shoes with the green tips to pick up the subtle green of the kimono. Thank you! At the risk of seeming grasping and needy, I have to tell you how much I look forward to my daily dose of Dolly. You always make my morning better. 😀

    I love this look. I would never wear a drop waist myself but you work it.

    I so want a Kimono..I’ve had my eyes on once since last year…might have to finally break down and buy it.


    • mtsedwards says:

      Oh, do! At the risk of being an enabler, I have to tell you that I’m finding them more versatile and interesting than cardis or blazers, especially in sunny SoCal. And I believe the link I left for mine is still an active eBay listing, so…

  7. Love a dropped waist dress – you look fab!

    • mtsedwards says:

      Thanks, Patti! I’m wearing so many things I normally wouldn’t this week, thanks to Anne’s challenge (which by the way is now Libation Week and so I’m behind the times). I’m glad this dress actually worked out for me.

  8. Ooh, LOVE it! The kimono is beautiful, but the last 3 pictures are adorable!

Tell me all about it! I'm listening...
