It is like wearing a soft light comfy cozy sac! Maybe it looks a bit sack-ish. Well, it is a smidge too big and if I were paying full price at Mexx I might have bought a smaller size, but since I got it from VV Boutique for $11, I thought it was good enough. It is so versatile - I can wear it with different coloured shirts and tanks, belted or no belt, with a long sleeve under and tights and boots. (In other words, you will see it again)
Mexx linen dress $11 VV Boutique, Necklace $2 VV Boutique
Green Old Navy tank circa 2009, Shoes from Korea circa 1997
Part Two Belt from C'est Cera $67
I admit my posing needs some help. Like any good top model, I will practice on the runway in my living room.
(which Stacy London tweeted was up and coming...yikes) and I wore the belt low slung which looked casual when I moved despite how it photographed thick! I don't own any other linen because of the wrinkle factor, but I think there is an unwritten code amongst linen wearers; something like, "we know we are incredibly chic and likely in a hot oasis so we overlook the wrinkles and enjoy our awesomeness."
It was the perfect ensemble for my day of errands and chillin with the family. I will say (sorry hubby) that while shopping in Walmart (like I said, "hot oasis"), I got some appreciative glances from men in uniform and I'm pretty sure it was the dress. VV Boutique scores again!
