Dressed for: A Farewell to Arms

Already Pretty outfit featuring Liza Rietz dress, orchid suede Franco Sarto Cicero pumps, bib necklace

Dress – Liza Rietz
Pumps – Franco Sarto Cicero
Necklace – fab.comsimilar
Earrings – Noir via Ideeli – similar
Bracelet – thrifted – similar look

Weather is still transitioning, but I doubt I’ll be going sleeveless again before spring. Wore this longtime favorite dress to a recent LOTT board meeting where I knew I’d be leading, gesticulating, and sweating, so a structured sheath with ventilation felt appropriate!

    Cute dress, and yay purple shoes!

    Mainly, though, I wanted to come say that this post highlighted for me one of the things that I like so much about your blog, Sal (in addition of course to your wonderful body-positive approach!). I have very different style-interests from yours, so sometimes your outfits aren’t so much my thing, but I love love love that you give us the thought process behind why you choose them, in both the esthetic and practical senses. That helps me see past the differences in our tastes to the inspiration that lies underneath it all, and that is a beautiful thing. So, thank you!

    I LOVE this dress and I am currently looking for something similar: in fact I’m hoping to find a suitable dress on my visit to the UK next month! Would you wear this during the cooler months and, if so, how would you style it?

      Sue, I’ve worn this particular dress with tights before during cooler weather, but because of the stiff twill and detailed construction I can’t really put a jacket or cardigan over it. Scarves look a bit odd, too! So in reality, it works for spring and summer, but fall and winter are tough. That doesn’t mean that something similar but softer couldn’t work for you, though!

      You could put a thin longsleeve top underneath it. I think something in a grey could be lovely. Or do tone on tone and use navy.

      Its a really simple solution.

    Really like that dress and it’s very flattering on you.

    (And I originally read your sentence above as “leading, gesticulating, and *swearing*.” Now that would be an interesting board meeting!)
