Button-front: Van Heusen Outlet — Dress: Gift — Sandals: Goodwill (Aerosoles) — Belt: Thrifted — Earrings: Target — Ring: Monterey Bay Aquarium
Pattern-mixing! Well, kind of. Does it count as a pattern if it doesn’t repeat all the way up a garment? I guess that’s one of the defining qualities of a pattern, so maybe not.
Pattern-mixing or not, this dress and this button-front were just made for each other.
And the button-front fits surprisingly well for being an XS. A little tight across the shoulders and bust, maybe, but otherwise fine. (I would have bought one in my proper size, but it was the only one in the store–downside of a going-out-of-business sale–and I couldn’t bear to leave the print behind. For a reference that maybe one of you will get, it reminded me of the mushi from Mushishi.)
I have to start waiting a little to take pictures after work so that the sky doesn’t look on fire, though. (Note to self…)
