Post your most recent clothing purchase!

  1. The other day I saw >> this blog post << about shopping your closet and they mentioned wearing a formal dress during the day. It totally caught my eye and I wondered if I could pull it off with this Theyskens Theory dress I just bought. It's not super formal but it's also not something I can I really throw on like shorts and a tee. I'd like to wear it more than just on dressy occasions!

    Here are some stock photos. Also wanted to show the cut out detail on the side.

    So here's how I'm thinking about wearing it...with a leather jacket (or a black blazer) and belted leather boots. Thoughts?


    I put on a black, crew neck sweater over it and it looks good. So that's a plus. :smile:

    Do any of you wear your dresses in more casual ways? Any tips?
  2. Here are mine
    Hermes trousers
    Hermes vintage blazer
    and Hermes vintage quilted jacket


  3. Wool cape...
  4. It looks great! What happens with a t or blouse under? I love how the jacket and the boots toughen that up.
  5. Thank you!! :flowers: I was hoping that someone else would like it because I feared that I'd look like I got dressed in the dark or something. :biggrin:

    I haven't tried a tee or blouse underneath but that's a great idea! I appreciate your input! :yes:
  6. I LOVE this on you! The boots and jacket compliment it perfectly!
  7. I love it. I wear all my dresses in a casual way, since my lifestyle is casual. I never wear hi heels but mostly booties or Lanvin flats/ sandals in summer
  8. Just ordered this sweatshirt from Helmut Lang

    my purchase from Victoria's Secret
  10. Thank you! :flowers: I was on the fence about whether or not I should keep the dress (due to wearability) but now, after hearing from you ladies, I definitely will keep it!

    Thanks Flower! When you do wear your dresses do you still feel dressed up? There's always a thought in the back of my head that when I wear an outfit, I'll look like I'm trying too hard even though I just threw it on. My lifestyle is super casual too so I run into this feeling a lot.
  11. DEFINITELY keep it- it's such a chic silhouette and an interesting pattern over a neutral. It's seasonless, and a great brand, and you can do so much with it! ENJOY!
  12. I don't feel too dressed up, it depends on the dress really. I love my IM or Vanessa Bruno dresses because you feel dressed up in a chic casual way. When I wear Missoni, well it's more for a night out (which is rare:p)...
