This is an old and slightly risqué dress that I don’t wear often, but have worn on the blog before, though not in an outfit post. I wore it in my Build a Better Blog Vlog, which I shot almost a year ago. I prefer it without a tank top underneath, because adding a layer alters the focus of this dress: the knotted, plunging V neckline. I am a child of the ’70s, after all. Think what you will.
I like this dress for its Grecian feel; there is some gorgeous draping at the sides by the arms that you can’t really see in these photos. I think it’s kind of modern toga—but nevermind about the dress, the Greeks, and the ’70s. This post is all about these new bad-girl cuffs that I’ve been sweating for months, and finally scooped last weekend. There was no way I could do just one. They were calling out to me from my local Tory Burch boutique, saying, you must wear us Wonder Woman style! They called, I listened. There you go.
*WVW = What V Wore
Dress: BCBG • Belt: Fossil • Heels: Jessica Simpson • Bag: c/o Foley and Corinna • Bracelets: Tory Burch • Sunnies: Dior
And introducing my new sunnies, a shape I haven’t done before: slightly cat eye. I am wild about Tom Ford’s Nikita and Nico styles, but sadly, they didn’t suit me. But I did find this pair that is not quite so exaggerated and I rather liked them. You? Close-ups coming in a future post.
PS: I have several Tory Burch bracelets now. If you’re a bracelet girl, I highly recommend. They are high-quality and so interesting! Absolutely worth the investment.
