I’ve still been in dress mode lately!  I wore this brown number while visiting with my gal pal this past weekend.  It’s super comfy because it’s a knit, but I have to wear a strapless bra (Boo!) and it’s pilling after multiple wears (another Boo!).  I can’t complain too much because I’ve had it for over 3 years.

dress :: Max Studio (from the outlet)
cuff bracelet :: F21
earrings :: ?? (really old)
wedges :: Coach
bag :: LV
As I do my Stevie Nicks turns, I’m trying to show you the ties that hang down from my shoulder straps.  They are really cute and dangly but can be dangerous because they get caught in things!  (No heavy machine operating here!)  I also like the double and asymmetrical hem – it’s longer in the back.  I’m pretty sure my dog is wondering what in the world I’m doing!
You can see how those ties are wrapped around the shoulder straps!  It reminds me of a Roman dress.

Happy Wednesday!!

    LOVE your wedges and earrings!  Such pretty, simple ways to jazz up a basic dress! I would catch those shoulder straps on so much, but I’m clumsy! :P

    Good point.  I have a green dress that is stained from ?? (food) and it’s a “house dress” now.

    Thanks Stylish!  The turquoise and brown/taupe are my “go-to” color combo if I’m wearing brown.  I need to come up with something else!

    LOL! Thanks Gabrielle! xo

  13. Samantha says:

    Thank you Cara!  I am clumsy too and have almost gotten into trouble with the shoulder straps!!  (I wear this dress when I’m hanging out and not doing things that can cause injury!!!)

    Thanks Kim!!  And thanks for being a new follower!  Will check out your blog! xo

    Bessie, I hear ya!  I am the worst at getting rid of clothes!  When they start looking bad, then I find “another use” for them!

  16. Chic chic says:

    I like this look! Dress, cuff, earrings..everything is well co-ordinated. Effortless chic.
    The braided strap of the dress is lovely too. Thumbs up for this one :)
