The Nude Dress
This post is also available in: Spanish
Happy Monday everyone! (Is there ever a Monday that is happy?) I hope you all had a fab weekend! It was a sad Sunday for me, as I took out my fall/winter/spring wardrobe from storage and put away my summer clothes (#firstworldproblems). Summer is officially over and I feel I’ve been cheated; summer barely lasted at all! I was still wearing coats in May! Now we’re back to outerwear again? Whyyyyyyyyyy? Oh well, the colder it is the more clothes I get to put on, the the more clothes I get to wear the better!
When I got this dress, courtesy of Flirt Catalog, I was warned that it was quite sheer. Ok, no probs, I thought, I’ll just wear it with a nude bodysuit underneath. I tried it on at home, everything looked good.The moment I stepped out of the front door and down two stairs the whole dress opened wide at the front. Hoping nobody saw I grabbed my dress, bowed my head down in shame and made a mad dash for the train. Big mistake, the dress likes to play in the wind. That day about 20 people must have gotten a good show. But it’s New York, they’ve seen worse. A little peep show has never stopped be from wearing anything before, click for an example, but I will be sure to wear this dress with tights from now on, or a slip. The color is incredibly versatile. I can see it with black tights, burgundy tights (the color of the season!), booties, heels, etc. I can pair it with brights like this turquoise blazer or neutrals for a less flashy look. I chose it out of the many dresses at Flirt Catalog because of the shiny details, which I knew would make quite a statement in the sun. And I wasn’t wrong about that.
