Faux Wrap Dress

Do you ever pick out something to wear in the evening and then the next day change your mind?  It happens to me all the time.  So it was with today's outfit.  Being Friday, my original plan was to do a dress with jeans look, and then I thought dress with footless tights.  But it just seemed a bit weird so I went back to dress with regular tights.

I wanted to wear a bright tee on the inside but the day started out drizzly and cold so I reverted back to a basic black turtleneck.  It looked a bit plain so added the obi thing which I've worn previously as both a scarf and a belt.

To match it all up I added my dollar store accessories (the necklace and bracelet), and at the last moment tossed on another scarf from the market in Spain:

I'll have to try experimenting with my look a bit more because this outfit got a lot of positive comments. 

The dress was $8 from Old Navy, but from about 5 or 6 years ago.  I find that I no longer like Old Navy; most of their clothing is poorly made and of shoddy material.  This dress seems to be an exception.  Seams are serged and it has held up well.

It's actually a faux wrap dress which is nice because you get the look without the hassle of having to worry about the dress flying open or gaping when you sit.

I only wish the cute flower print was on the outer panel instead of the inner.

  2. Oh that does suck that those pretty flowers are hidden. They are cute. I can't believe you got that dress at Old Navy. I love the red you added. Very cute outfit. :)

    1. I know right? It'd be way better with the flowers on the outside, wonder why they don't have people looking out for stuff like that? Too expensive probably.

  3. I have a faux wrap dress in grey wool jersey and you're right that the "faux" makes it easier to wear.

    1. Hey Terri - haha - sometimes I think about stitching down the real wrap dresses.
