Dress: Anthropologie Wightwick Manor Dress
Belt: Anthropologie Synapse Belt
Boots: Steve Madden
This dress has gotten no love from me since I first brought it home back in 2010. I've tried to put outfits together with it several times over the last year, but it never ends up making it out the front door. My biggest complaints with it are the pattern and the colors. The pattern reminds me of my grandma's couch or curtains from the 70's and the colors are just so bland and dull. The dress also isn't lined, so if you wear tights with it, the velvety feeling material bunches up like crazy.
I decided to give the dress one more chance this past week before getting rid of it during my spring cleaning and I don't know what happened, but I actually really liked it this time. I think it must have been the nice weather and the fact that I didn't have to wear tights with it. It also could have been the boots. In the past, I've always tried pairing the dress with flats or heels and they just never looked right with it.
I probably won't be wearing this dress again anytime soon because it's more of a fall/winter dress, but it's definitely a keeper!
