Something other than denim

8/4/11


Sans Souci cut-out floral dress

As much as I like to don a bunch of layers with the American staple (our most coveted, denim), I do like to occasionally dress appropriately for summer ha ha. Cut-outs are everywhere, it seems, and there are so many cute dresses I've come across but never one that fit me right. I picked this one out a month ago while shopping and thrifting in L.A... love how scattered the flowers look and how they vary in size. When it looks like the floral design follows no particular pattern, it seems less girly to me -- which I like.

Speaking of denim, my life has been seemingly revolving around it -- previewing the Gap 1969 line of denim, Bebe's new collection, Kasil's S/S '12 shoot... I have more fun stuff to share in the next week or so, but in the mean time... happy Thursday!

That dress looks amazing! Love cut-out dresses and didn't expect them to look so great with florals, but I've been proven wrong. Would love to see the entire dress :)

Such a beautiful dress and those cut-offs are pretty sexy!
So it's like contradictions finding eachother, the romantic pattern of the fabric and the saucy cut-offs. Love it.

Looks so cute and classy on you! Definitely not a good idea for a larger girl like myself, but I love seeing it worn well. I'm sure it's comfortable for the heat too!

Amazing dress!!!

Anne Di said...

Thank you for reminding me it's still summer! For some reason, I'm beginning to think it's already Fall (even though it's only August haha). But yay for pretty floral printed dresses with cut-outs. I wish we knew what kind of shoes you were wearing. It's a mystery if you went either the girly/tomboyish route or just suuuper girly cute. haha. Maybe in the next blog post? But another golden thrift find though! Makes me want to go thrift shopping again haha.

agree with the varying size of florals, does seem less girly. ha. all about your denim outfits though, you style them very well!

Those cut outs are gorgeous on that summer dress.
