So it goes like this: It’s Saturday, and you –by some miracle of God– do not have to go to a single wedding or funeral. The weather is beautiful and you decide to meet a few of your favorite girlfriends for tea or bevvies al fresco, telling yourselves since it’s outside and you’re getting plenty of glorious fresh air, why it’s practically like getting exercise!
You’ve got plans later that night, so you don’t want to get all dolled up, but you still want to make a bit of an effort, if only because you have longings in the loinular regions when it comes to that adorable Brazilian busboy who could muddle your caipirinha, if we know what you mean.
There. Easy. Done.
Like a good sermon it is long enough to cover all the bases, but short enough to keep folks interested, plus it’s dead easy. Just toss it (the dress, not the sermon) over your head, put on a heavy-ish pair of shoes for balanced visual weight and that’s it. I actually really like the way they styled this in the photo –although I wish the model had her arm down so I could see how long it really is– because it’s put together but not overdone.
How to wear it:
–just like the photo, with non-delicate shoes and a big bangle or two
–with “city shorts” that don’t fall much below the hem. Perfect if it’s just a little short for you.
–with cigarette pants and a loosely cinched skinny leather belt
–with an interestingly tied silk scarf and a pair of Ray Ban Wayfarers
–hung over a chair in the Brazilian busboy’s apartment
