Wear it later

The Wallis fashion week competition ended last night, and while I did not place, I did get over 100 votes, and I want to thank all of you who supported me, because it means a lot.

This is how I might style this dress for early Fall, the trench is my go-to coat for transitional weather. It works well on it's own, but can be layered, and the length is perfect for dresses. It isn't too bulky and khaki of course, goes with everything.

Did you see how I styled it for summer?

  2. Aw, I'm sorry that you didn't win, but I'm sure plenty of other opportunities will arise. And think of all the wonderful things this blog has brought you! You rock, lady.

    Firstly, I really love the shot of those rings, Lyddie! And what a pretty color you have on your nails, too! Secondly, that dress is so fun. I like how the floral print isn't repetitive and more artsy fun random. Your trench is lovely, too, and I can't wait to see more of your fall things work their way into your posts. :D

  5. I love both of the ways you styled this dress - and quite a few of those 100 votes were from me, because I truly thought you should win. But either way, you look fabulous. I love the idea of a classic trench with an unexpected bright dress underneath.

  22. Love the trench over the dress! You look great as always. I'm kind of in love with those London Fog bags. I found a cognac one on Overstock for $40 but am loving the deep teal of yours. :)
