Sweet and demure. Hello, Visible Monday friends. Do you ever feel like trying a new and rather different look? Of course you do! And that’s what I did for this Visible Monday: I switched out my usual classic-with-some-funk look for something vintage, feminine and a little sweet.
|Welcome to Visible Monday. If you want to participate, it’s so easy: just go to the bottom of this post for the how-to. Link back to Not Dead Yet Style if you like – we’re on Easy Does It “rules” now!|
This 1980’s floral Evan Picone dress was thrifted in NYC. They were a major American brand for my work-wear in the 80’s, and made mid-range conservative suits and separates. This dress could definitely be worn to the office, but it’s a departure from their mainstream pieces. I think it’s modest and demure, with a prairie sensibility.
I don’t love a waisted dress, so I tried to make this one a funky shift by pulling out the waist elastic. Major re-fashion fail, so I’m wearing a belt to distract you. I also added my Annie Hall hat from Tenth Street Hats (they are terrific to work with, go check them out).
Are you feeling like changing things up today? Show us in the link-up.
