Dynamite Delightful Dozen

This dress has been hanging on my wall, waiting to be worn for weeks, finally the day has come! ModCloth sent the Delightful Dozen girls this super cute dress to all style up, it's been so cool to see how everyone put their own spin on it! Since it's been winter again in New England (it snowed today! WTF?) this week, I wore mine like a skirt, adding a thick wool sweater over it to stay warm. I can't wait for the weather to get warmer, the Dynamite Dress will be perfect for summer!

Cuteee!

Rebekah said...

gorgeous color combinations. It makes me so happy how much of your wardrobe seems to be thrifted. Sometimes having a smaller budget makes being fashionable feel difficult, but it's totally not and you prove it fabulously!

princesspolitico said...

wondrous proportions! great usage of a wool top to tame a busy yet beautiful pattern :)

I really love this as a skirt! It tones down the brightness a bit, and I love the color of tights you paired them with.

Oh I really love the way you've styled this - it looks so pretty & girlie as a skirt, especially with a nice plan grey sweater. You rock it, girl!

I thought the dress was floral, but looking closer, it's quite geometric! Really like it, but those bows on those shoes are so cute.

It snowed here too.. Blah. Of course, we still have a foot of snow on the ground.
The dress looks so cute as a skirt here!

Rūta said...

What a perfect outfit! Love the touch of red red in the skirt and ruffles. Simple sweater gives some softness , and these tights is more interesting, but still classy lookind choise.
