I have to tell you, loosing few pounds and finding out that I can do strapless after all, has been a liberating experience, my summer tops options has widened rapidly. And then the dress went on sale to a very reasonable price point.
Well, guess what? I veered off my commitment to simple neutrals and went ahead and placed and order for an orange dress and matching shoes. Sometimes you just have to buy what you love…
Tie waist dress, size 6
I love this dress. It is still simple but different from anything I have and perfect for summer. The silk feels luxurious against the skin. The color is very nice muted orange and I like the way colorblocking is done here.
The back is slightly longer than the front.
Removing the tie gives you a little different look, I like it both ways. I don't have a picture but the neckline looks good with the top hook (or two) undone.
I went for monochromatic look with the matching slangbacks and orange-tone leather purse.
|Slangbacks, size 39|
These slangbacks were a steal at $48. The leather is super soft and they are very comfortable. I love how they look almost like heels but they are really more like flats. I wear 8 in ballet flats and 8.5 in JCrew heels and I ordered size 39 in these and the fit is perfect. I usually take 39 in Euro sized shoes.
Since I was placing this order I also bought the silk pockets blush blouse, but I will review it in another post.
What do you think?
Have you ordered anything from Emerson Made sale?
How do you like the dress and the shoes?
