The Lines Are Rebelling

Loafers: Debenhams

It’s hurricane season right now, and here I am posting some overly due photos from bright and sunny yesterdays! I got this 40s style dress with a “princess cut” from eShakti whom I discovered had a personalized tailoring service. Not only can you provide your measurements, but you can also customize the length of the dress, the sleeves, the pockets, and the neckline for a lot of their dresses. Nifty. It’s a bit pricey, but it looks to be fairly priced considering the personalization. This is a fantastic resource for retro-loving wedding planners seeking to get customized bridesmaid dresses.

Oh yes, it’s hurricane AND wedding season this time of year too! The news has been a downer about inclement weather calamities lately, but then again, when has it not been? I pray for everyone’s safety.

What I like most about this dress is the stripes on the top part that subtly go in different directions. I just got another blouse that did the same thing. It’s like the lines are rebelling against the usual order of things.

I wore this dress out on a regular Sunday morning with a casual pair of wedge loafers, which you can get for a really good deal (or other things) with some debenhams offer codes online. I force myself to look up coupon codes literally every time I shop online. I don’t cut out physical coupons, because I think that’s a waste of time. However, I totally have no excuse to not do a quick search on coupons for websites where I shop. It’s a money-saving compulsion. It only becomes a problem if I waste more than a couple of minutes for coupon codes! Coupons shouldn’t be a vice.

    I do like the opposite stripes design. That’s nice that you can order things in a longer length, considering how I enjoy that with being tall and hating how tiny skirts are. If it isn’t 35″ long (as a dress), it’s too short for me! eek! Very cute outfit!!!

    Love this dress on you- it makes you look taller and leaner! :) I love eShatki too. They have such cute dresses!

    Thank you! Yes, I see a lot of dresses and skirts whose designs are so cute, but they’re also really short :-( Same with tops, but it would be nice if everything came customizable.

    […] liked the idea of opposing vertical and horizontal lines in an outfit so much from my previous outfit post that I did it once again! This striped top from Oasap is great to wear as both a light cardigan and […]

    What an adorable dress! Your styling is lovely too. I love this sort of stripe pattern on retro cut dresses, I think it’s so flattering and versatile :)
