Smoke On The Water


Wearing American Eagle Sweater & Belt|Vintage Dress worn as Skirt|
Aldo Bracelets

I fell in love with this vintage dress when I found it a few back in March (see full dress here) but hadn't found a place to wear it, until I layered a sweater overtop, making it a very wearable pleated skirt.

Don't Forget To...

Happy Weekend!

  8. This dress is stunning in it's own right but I'm loving it as a skirt. It's great that you were able to find a way to turn such a glamorous dress into a piece that you can wear everyday.

  51. That dress is sooooo AMAZING!
    I really like how You transformed it to beautiful skirt look adding that soft, comfy sweater and belt.
    Few golden bangles are perfect accessory minimalism what is needed for this look.
    I always have adimred your wonderful hair waves. Perhaps my hair is too long and heavy to stay in beautiful wavy position
