This dress is orange! Can you believe it? This might be the first orange item I have ever purchased. It really isn’t a color I normally gravitate towards. That being said, there was something about this dress that made orange seem understated rather than loud. Perhaps that’s why I felt like I needed it in my closet for fall.
I originally purchased this orange leopard print slip dress to wear at New York Fashion Week. It would have been perfect on that really hot day when temperatures and humidity soured over ninety degrees. When I wore it the other day, I felt a little sad putting on the dress with the same accessories I had planned to wear in New York. I guess I am still a little down about missing fashion week; plus, I still don’t have clearance from my doctor to go back to working out, or lifting heavy items. So, I am still in surgery-recovery-jail, if there is such a thing. But I digress. . .
This dress has turned out to be perfect for our fall weather. I can top it off with a faux leather jacket while the fog is in, then take off the jacket while the sun shines, and brings temperatures above eighty degrees. It’s great for transitioning from warm to cool weather! Love that!
Wearing a slip dress over a tee reminds me so much of college. It really was a hot and huge trend in the early to mid 1990s. My friends and I used to wear this style all the time! Plus, moto jackets were popular back then too, so the entire look, minus the boots, reminds me of my undergrad days. If I remember correctly, my shoes would have more in the platform boot realm; and black, definitely black!
Are there any current trends out right now which remind you of another time? Do you believe it’s OK to re-wear a trend, or do you feel once you wear a trend, you can’t re-wear it? I know a lot of people who refuse to re-wear a trend! I would love to know what you think!
