So, Saturday morning I finished my dress – just in time to wear this outfit to my little sisters recital. Of course, we didn’t have time to get pictures for my blog, so I was forced to re-create the outfit yesterday for all of you – not that I minded.
I went with an exposed zipper in the back because a) I love that it brings out the red flowers in the dress, and b) it looked a lot easier than a hidden zipper. And I think it was, once I got the hang of it. Which I had after the third time. That time it went on almost without any problems. And yes, I did had to put it on three times. Now I know why everyone told me zippers are a pain. They look so easy! The good news is that, like I said, I think I have the hang of exposed zippers. So, trend or no trend, I will be doing them for the rest of my life – just so you know.
I was so cold taking this picture. It felt so warm outside. I was hardly cold at all with just a light jacket and cardigan – and then I took them off. And froze. Some day it is going to be naturally warm – like gasps eighty degrees, and I am going to wear the exact outfit above only without the tights, and I am going to go to the beach in it and walk in the sand carrying my sandals, and then trek around in the long reeds with my Diana and/or Holga camera. Add my big sis into that equation and you have my idea of bliss. Someday…
EDIT: Oh my goodness! It’s been a little over an hour and I already have 20 votes on this outfit! I’m in the style gallery – in an hour! That has NEVER happened to me before! Thank you, thank you, thank you to everyone who voted me in! You have no idea how much it means to me! You all are awesome! <3
