Dress: See by Chloé
I’d been sneaking around this dress for a few weeks (I didn’t even try it on, just kept putting my hands on it, thinking how nice it was) – a classic. Normally, I’m not that lucky, but this time I even got it for more than 70% off. Somehow the saying is right: “Nothing haunts us more than the things we didn’t buy.” – I’m pretty sure we all know this feeling. I always keep trying to be reasonable, rethink what I’m about to shop, and most times I leave the things at the store, only to come back home and get angry at myself for not taking them home with me. Consequence: I come back and the pieces are gone. But from time to time, lucky me is even rewarded with such little specials as “last piece”, “only one in my size” (most times both) or “super sale”. Just like with this dress. Last piece, my size and a very good price. Ka-ching! ;)
Now this beautiful silk dress from See by Chloé is mine and I love it so, so much! Silk has definitely become one of my favorite fabrics. I love the feeling of barely nothing on my skin! Plus, this dress has a gorgeous print and a great cut. I love the little cut-out at the upper part of my tummy, I love the back with the long bands to knot, I love the flowing skirt – this dress is just perfect and it doesn’t need a lot of company (accessories, you know). ;) I went for black sandals and no jewelry except for my favorite Dior earrings (besides the creamy white pearls, these black marble and silver mirrored little balls are the ones I wear all the time – still, I’m looking for all-black ones or something totally different and I can’t wait to see what versions of these earrings Dior will create in the future!). My little showstopper is this bright matte lipstick from Anastasia Beverly Hills – definitely a favorite. I need to get more of those great lipsticks!
