If this dress looks familiar to you it's because you've seen it on THIS POST. I bought my daughter new clothes for her birthday and this was one of the items. Of course, I used the opportunity to do a quick photo shoot before I gave it to her. She doesn't mind, as I often borrow a lot of her clothes just for photo shoots so that I'll have something different to show my readers.
The dress is a beautiful emerald green with a tribal pattern on it and an exposed back zipper.
I wore a gold metal belt around my waist just to give an illusion of a waistline. I put a sparkly black knotted head band in my hair.
I wore more green jewelry on my wrist. Some of the bracelets look blue, but they are a very light green in real life.
The cross body bag is a mint green color. My daughter gave it to me for Mother's Day. I love the perforated flap.
Both the hemline and the sleeves have a separate border pattern. The dress is on the short side, but it could easily be worn over tights or leggings in the winter if more modesty is required. It could also be worn as a long tunic.
It's hard to see in the picture because of the pattern, but there is a button on the sleeves and a tab underneath the sleeve so you can shorten the sleeve length.
I wore black gladiator sandals from Sears (old).
I loved this dress so much, I didn't want to give it up. Oh well, it's a good thing I gave it to my daughter as I know I will always be able to borrow it!
Have a Great Day! Amy

Thanks Andrea, yes I know how lucky we are in Wisconsin to get rainfall and live so close to a large fresh body of water. I thought California was doing better this year and getting some much needed rain, sad to here your still experiencing dryness.Delete
This dress looks really pretty on you! I like the exposed zipper on the back. It adds a little edginess to a pretty, feminine dress. Can I ask what lipstick you are wearing? Looks great!ReplyDelete
Thanks Karen. I love the exposed back zipper too. The lipstick I'm wearing isn't actually a lipstick but a tinted lip balm by Revlon and it's color 045 Romantic.Delete
