I am not entirely sure about this outfit. I really the combination of opposite colors -- that deep, grape-y violet and mustard yellow -- and I like the silhouette, but I don't think it wore as well as it looked.
Occasion: a Friday (ie. short day) of lectures
The dress is a slight a-line and would be fine on its own, except that it hits me about two inches higher on the leg than I feel comfortable with for school or professionally. I've worn a black skirt under it as an extender before, but I wanted more color this time. This yellow skirt, though...it's so full. I know petticoats worked that way, but all that fairly stiff material (almost like denim) under a much lighter-weight, narrower dress was just awkward.
Such a cheeseball face, but it shows off that lovely necklace a bit better, and the interesting texture that the tone-on-tone stripes add. I really do like these colors together, so I'm sure I'll give this pairing another shot at some point.
Now, while we're on the subject of cheeseball...
