This post really could have been called, “creating an outfit with items in your house.” I wanted to show two easy ways I have found to wear the Bermeja Tunic Dress in a different season (other post with this dress can be found here).
If you do not own this dress, no worries, this look can be created with any ol’ white dress (similar dress here). And if you do not have a white dress, get one. That is an order. Well, unless you are a nun. Then you are all ready in an order. And you should probably skip the white dress. Black looks good on you. Love your habit.
I wanted to show a day and night transitional look with this dress. Only, unlike other blogs that show the daytime look first (for some such odd reason being that day comes before night. But does it really?). I like to be contrary. I am doing it opposite.
Such as the opposite colors of the styling of this dress.
Nuns, I’m on to something here, I can just feel it. Don’t ya think?
For my evening look, I pulled my hair up into a fun pony tail. Slipped on some huge turquoise chandelier earrings (old from World Market) and added a black ribbon around my waist.
I am not sure where the ribbon came from.
I was looking for my black belt.
I could not find it.
I found this ribbon stashed in my underwear drawer.
Except this leads to many questions.
Nuns, you might want to look away now.
Such as, why was a ribbon in my underwear drawer?
Where did it come from?
Was it part of a box of chocolate?
What? You don’t hide chocolate in your underwear drawers?
Next, you will tell me you don’t keep salami in your boots. And I know that to be a lie. How could you lie in front of these nuns?
And the most important question, who ate my darn chocolate?
I paired both looks with black tights and high heeled booties.
For my daytime look, I simply pulled my ponytail out and undid the bow.
‘Cause I am truly a
styling genius lazy heathen.
Underneath the dress dwells my slip from Free People. I kind of hate the slip the Bermeja Tunic Dress originally came with. It was way too short to actually cover parts best left unseen with any practicality. I could not find a different white slip, so this uneven ragged edge little number got some use.
If you are an even-hemmed kind of gal (or fella), then this look must be driving you crazy.
But I am not, nor have I ever been an exact measurement sort of gal.
Not level headed.
Nor even tempered.
I will have nun of that.
My point being, you can wear any slip underneath this dress and it will be fine.
Speaking of grabbing things from around the house.
Yes, we were speaking of such things.
Keep up. These voices in my head don’t just speak to themselves.
I loved the chandelier earrings that I wore with this dress and I really, really wanted a turquoise beaded bracelet to pair with them. But I do not own a turquoise beaded bracelet. However, I do own a vintage turquoise beaded sweater clip (I will have a post coming up soon about sweater clips. They are awesome). I just clasped it together at the ends around my wrist and it created a bracelet.
Nuns, take note. I made a bracelet in less than one second with my own hands.
It is a miracle.
Not as miraculous as this scenery. If we were not completely trespassing, I would have stayed longer. But isn’t it beautiful? Truly worth some jail time.
Besides, I just confessed.
To a nun.
I’m all good now.
I’m a pretty calm rebel.
Probably because nobody cared.
The owners saw us and just waved. ‘Cause they must have known about my miraculous bracelet. Those types of achievements get around.
Not that I am bragging. Wouldn’t dream of it. Besides, that is not my favorite sin.
You have a favorite sin?
Yep. Shhhhhhh. Don’t tell the nuns. I don’t make a habit of committing it.
So, what is it? Greed? Gluttony? Envy? Lust? Wrath? Sloth (Oi)? Pride?
Sorry. I’ll never tell.
You can’t get it out of me.
It would take a miracle.
