Kat, whose blog is Atavisions, was thinning her closet and put up some nice things for sale. They were attractive and priced to move. I bought several items and, when they arrived, Kat even included a copy of a book she wrote! How nice of her. It's a novel.
Here's one of the items. It was a dress on her and is a tunic on me. (She's normal-sized and I'm a giant.)
I am attracted to its color and the shape of the collar. Also, its simplicity allows for creative styling. I added a belt that Megan made for me from one of my male neckties.
What do you think? How would you have styled it?
That tunic is so pretty, love the color!ReplyDelete
Looks great as a tunic over leggings. The metallic touches are nice as well.ReplyDelete
I think you fashioned it beautifully!! And it is SO a dress on you! Haha. ;)ReplyDelete
I really love the striking color of the dress. One of my favorite dresses in my closet is similar to that color and it breaks my heart because I've grown too fat to wear it. Sigh.
That's a lovely colour on you! It's so neat to own something that used to belong to another blogger, isn't it?ReplyDelete
Cute! You must have snatched this up before I browsed through her items. I didn't see this gem when I looked!ReplyDelete
Love that dress and how you've styled it. I love knowing the "story" of my clothing too.ReplyDelete
It fit pretty much the same way on me, haha. I'm about 5'10. It looks wonderful on you! I never really wore this dress out, but if I had, I would have worn it with black leggings (which I'm FINALLY starting to wear!) and a slouchy cardigan.ReplyDelete
If anyone wants to check out said sale, go here! http://www.atavisions.com/p/blog-sale.html I'll open a separate store with paypal cart buttons someday, but until then, this is how it's going down!
That such a great color! I actually just thrifted a shirt in that shade. I also love that you paired that belt with it! Purple and gold are great colors with that teal! Shirts meant to be "normal" on many people are tunic length on me. Ah, the problems of standardized clothing.ReplyDelete
Hi Ally - I love the way you have styled this - leggings and tunic are just so stunning and can be dressed up or down...I have been visiting, just not commenting - and sorry I missed it - but Happy Belated Birthday for last Thursday...I am looking forward to seeing your birthday present to yourself...I love both your birthday necklaces....very pretty...My blog is now 100% up to date - I even had to re-introduce myself to my blog, as I am sure it had forgotten who I was...now I just need to keep it up...Lots of loveReplyDelete
Great buy! I love the color! :)ReplyDelete
You look very sweet and springy! I really like the blue and white with the gold flats :) Happy Belated Birthday!!ReplyDelete
I think this is one of my favorite looks on you. The color of your hair goes really nicely with the color of the tunic. I love hand-me downs from friends. It's great to get something cheap from someone you know.ReplyDelete
I love that dress, it's a great color! I like how you styled it with those leggings and cute accessories too. :)ReplyDelete
Ally, this is a wonderful shade of blue on you. It brings out your eyes. They really pop in this.ReplyDelete
I think you did a good job styling it !ReplyDelete
You can also try it with a black pencil skirt and a colorful cardi.
Now, I am waiting to see your new hair do -
blerg, wish we were the same size so we could clothing swap!!ReplyDelete
