Deconstructed and Divine

I call this my deconstructed dress because it kind of looks like someone started with a perfectly fine plaid dress, took it apart and put it all back together again, but wonky.  And I bet they had pieces left over.

Usually, I don’t like haphazard – I’ve written before about my minimalist aesthetic. But this dress, with its asymmetrical, multi-layered hemline, patchwork bodice and voluminous embellishments in the verboten hip region, appealed to me. As I looked it over on the hanger at Nordstrom Rack, I found myself digging the chaos of it, getting into its “Pollyanna on crack” vibe.

I wore it to work and people didn’t quite know what to say.  That’s practically a sign from God it’s a keeper.

  1. Wonky.

    THAT word will be so overused now. I love it.

    And that dress IS cute. A great look for you.

    You’re an inspiration even when you don’t know it. I bought a cute black/white blousy top and put it with a straight, above the knee skirt. Looks great…but something needs to go “BANG” with it.

    So, I bought some peep-toe slingbacks. Oh, yeah. A vermillion color on top and plum strap across the back. I can go nowhere without someone saying how “those shoes totally make that outfit.”

    And I would have never dreamed they’d go together.

    YOU are in my head, girl.

    • I’m in your head?! I’m both flattered and very concerned for you.

      Your outfit sounds fabulous! Good choice pairing the blousy blouse with the straight skirt for balance. And I need to see those shoes.
