Growing up (way, way long ago) I remember my Mom always wearing very vibrant colored flowing dresses and jumpsuits that had really big sleeves and silky fabric. I didn't pay much attention to fashion "names" nor styles...the colors are what moved my needle up the richter scale. So, when my daughter came to me with this gift from a friend, I put it on right away....and went for a road trip.
Unfortunately, the next day, I was in the mood to wear the dress again, but I knew that wouldn't sit well with my family. You see I am known to wear the same thing over and over if I am in love with it, like I am with this dress. And I had to wear my boots. You can't really see the pic above where I have on my cow-girl boots. That was the most comfortable I have felt in silk. On to duplicate that look.....First, I had to decide on the fabric choice, since I have a huge stash, and growing steadily everyday, I knew it had to be a bold print, and of course "silky". In this case silk is all I have, since I don't actually buy polyester silky prints much since the weather is so humid.
I really like this dress, and with the boots it really feels sassy and comfy.
