I’ve had this dress for several years, and love that it’s not only OTT, but comfortable and versatile. The halter has extra long straps that can be tied a number of different ways; in fact I wore it quite a while ago in another variation, and that post, WVW: A Clear Cut, is still one of my most popular posts to this day. Proof that what you all truly appreciate here on G&G is creativity—not conservatism.
I donned the dress again for date night with Hubby at a fancy schmancy steakhouse, and wore it my favorite way: Tied at the neck, straps pulled tight and tucked under my belt.

And your eyes do not deceive you. I added a couple knots to the hemline of my dress to keep it casual and let my sandals peek out. The knots are something I picked up from the Sass & Bide salesgirls in Sydney a few years ago.
You’ve seen all these accessories a lot lately—I’m having quite the love affair, aren’t I? Hubby especially likes the spikes, so I wear them often, for him and for me. And he specifically requested smoky eyes (if you were around last Friday, I had a Twitter convo about the fact that he requested “slutty eyes” which is hilarious boyspeak for smoky eyes). And he chose the lippie and took some snaps, Good, non?
So am I right? Is it true that you, my wonderful readers, prefer the wilder, more dramatic side of me? You prefer the scorpion?
