White day was a pretty easy day because I have all of two white dresses and I think I’ve talked ad nauseam about my fave Target dress so it was about time to highlight the other one.
You know. The red-headed stepchild?
Speaking of red, anyone notice I skipped out on that color with today’s OOTD? I truly was planning on painting my nails a blood red or at least slashing my lips with some NYX Snow White action, but in the flurry of getting in and out of ensembles and chasing the sun, guess what details I forgot?
(I did remember the blue, though, because it’s technically TARDIS Tuesday and wearing blue is a must on TARDIS Tuesday!)
Anyhoozle, this dress. It actually preceded the Target one by several years, another impulse buy that has stood the test of time because it’s so classic, you know? I mean, eyelets, shirred bodice, babydoll silhouette and sophisticated grey and silver striping details? This is a perfect square of fashion goodness, my friends. The only thing missing are pockets.
Perfection of this frock aside, I want to point out the fact that I have yet another twinsies main pic. That is, I simply couldn’t decide which style to feature: layer or no layer. When faced with indecision, a Gemini’s tried-and-true reaction is to choose both, of course, but this particular indecision is noteworthy because there had been a time not too long ago that I would never even have considered baring arms, much more showing them off.
About time my insecurities get wrestled into submission.
P.S. Could I count my son’s shirt as accessorizing with red?
P.P.S. Could this outfit count as “minimalism” so I can link up with Anne? Hrmmm…knowing my usual MO, I think it can! 😀
