Lace labyrinth

Lace dress: French Connection;
Red sweater: Faded Glory;
Striped bag: thrifted;
Shoes: Zigi Soho.
How I've worn the dress before: here.

Since my anniversary was about a week ago, it seemed more than appropriate to wear my after-reception wedding dress for a beautiful Saturday afternoon at the park. When I bought it two years ago, I thought it was beautiful but I had no idea how to wear it in everyday life. Now, I want to wear it all the time because of the labyrinth design of the lace details. It's a shame that Georgia summers make it almost impossible for layering.
      The bag was a find during one particular thrifting trip during high school -- among the haul of that day include my carpet bag and saddle bag. I'm glad I kept this one all these years -- the color palette reminds me of a big-top circus tent.

In other news, I'm thinking about expanding my blog posts to two per day. I've recently hit a new spurt of creativity and want to take advantage of it. What I want to know, dear readers, is what would you like to see more of on this blog? Outfit photos? How-tos? Personal stories? "Treasured" items? Let me know.

Have a happy Sunday,

signature1 by you.
