As you can probably guess, this “duster” is actually a vintage dress worn open. Buttoned up, it makes me look like a houndstooth-festooned milk jug. With legs. Worn open, it still needs a belted inner layer for definition, but it’s considerably more flattering. An eye-catching piece, to be sure, and for that I adore it. Something about oversized houndstooth just makes me happy.
Today I was amazed to find that matching my earrings to my boots created an interesting sense of cohesion within this outfit. I may have done the same thing in dozens of other outfits before, but the concept just clicked today.
Have you had any recent dressing-related revelations?
