Midi Dress

Midi Dress: Asos {here, on sale!}
Espadrilles: Christian Louboutin "Tiburon," thrifted {try here}
Clutch: Vintage
Hat: Target {similar here}
Earrings: Thrifted
Bracelets: Target {similar here and here} and thanks to INPINK {in silver}
Watch: Michael Kors {similar here}
Sunglasses: Chloé "Ammi" {similar here}
Lipstick: MAC "M.A.C. Red" {here}
Nails: OPI "German-icure by OPI" {here}

Mornin', friends! I've had my eye on this cute midi dress after seeing it on Anh, and since it's now on sale, I snatched it up. The cross-strap bodice is intriguing, but very gapey. I sewed the straps closed to avoid indecent exposure and also hemmed it 2.5 inches. In addition, I sized up two sizes from my usual US size.

Also, I'm debuting this vintage clutch I purchased from Hilary Eiseman at the antique market this weekend. It's made with cream crochet and has a lucite zipper pull - circa late 1950s. I hope you had a fabulous weekend!
