Wearing Prints on prints can be tricky.. especially when they should make zero sense together. I think of this look as a reflection of nature. The Astr the label dress being the beautiful leaves of fall and the snake print Marc Fisher boots being the beautiful seductive creatures that slither between them..
Okay who am I kidding.. I just loved the way it looked together. The above thought actually came after.
These two are the glue that brought it all home. I was helping a friend get dressed for a date last week.. and as she roamed about her apartment searching for the right “I’m not trying too hard, yet I put some effort into it” outfit she walked into her room, where I conveniently was using her new head and neck traction device… That’s a whole other post.. but those with neck and back issues know exactly what I am talking about.. oh and I may or may not have only shown up at her house to try out said device.. The helping her dress part was a side note of the visit..
Anyhow where was I?
Oh yes! She was roaming about …. putting in effort yada yada yada.. and she was like, “this is it”.. she was wearing jeans and a camisole.. and the first thing I said was, “you need to finish the look”. The next thing she said was “ugh”.
There is a point to this story. I say all this to say, always finish the look. Yes, while this slip dress and boots would have been awesome on their own.. the blazer and cute little bag upped the ante. BTW: I have no idea if that is even the right phrase for what I am saying.. but ever since I heard Sarah Jessica Parker say it on Sex and the City. I have been dying to say it..
