Outfit Post: 12/14/11

Dress: Gift — Tights: Target — Shoes: Goodwill (Target) — Necklace and earrings: Gift — Headband: Vendor at Fanime

Still sick, still stuck at home! I am feeling somewhat better, at least, and will probably be accompanying Tia to a bridal-gown-trying-on-fest later on today, so at least that’s progress. (Do they allow real cameras in bridal shops? We shall see!)

Meanwhile, this is what I wore to work last Wednesday, which was also the day of our department’s holiday party, which I had the fun of planning. I mostly took a backseat to the two other, more party-planning-experienced ladies in the group, and everything turned out pretty well!

I wondered whether I would feel a little overdressed in this outfit, but said eff it and wore it anyway. Overdressing is half the fun! Plus, I haven’t worn this wrap dress in donkey’s years–I think not since we went and saw Spring Awakening in San Francisco for my 20th birthday.

It feels a little formal for everyday wear, but it’s quite comfy (once I safety-pin the front so that the wrap doesn’t slide open) and with the sleeves and the pattern and all, it’s a little bit different than a lot of what I ordinarily wear, so I think I’ll try to work it into my wardrobe more than once every three years from now on.

  1. Lovely wrap dress! I mean, I am biased and love wrap dresses more than any other garment, but that also means that I have an eye for great ones, and this is one of ‘em :) You look fantastic :)

    And yay for dress shopping! Here’s hoping you feel much better very soon!

  2. Oooh, I thought this dress looked vaguely familiar, but I totally couldn’t place it. That was one of the most excellent birthday extravaganzas, m’dear. I’m glad you invited me along. :)

    Also, that headband is too cute. Which I’ve said before. But it is cute. :D

  3. There’s no such thing as overdressed! Okay, maybe there is… but I don’t think this is overdressed at all. This dress can definitely go casual :)
