Last year's Valentine's Day look is today's SAHM outfit. It's rather short and it feels much more comfortable worn as a tunic with leggings. I had this designer find hidden in the second closet of cast-offs, for sale, to mend and non essentials. Reason unknown.
I have to admit, I love thrifting designer treasures. There's no way I would spend $400 on a dress with my small pockets but $3 I can manage which is why I said yes to this pink See by Chloe shift dress. Dresses lacking waistlines don't top my list either but for $3, I took a chance.
It's all those cute little details that sucked me in. A+ for the perfect pink color, the comfortable quality of the silk / cotton blend, exposed zipper, scallop trim, and puffy sleeves.
I like it better as tunic rather than dress. It's way more functional. It also gives me a reason to wear leggings as pants. If you're ever on the fence about whether or not leggings are a good choice, two things to consider:
1. Are they thick enough? If the lighting isn't good in your place, hold those leggings up to a light. Can you see through them. If so, your butt cheeks may be exposed if you're out and about.
2. If you wear a pair the same color as your skin, you'll look like a Barbie who's lost her clothes. Perhaps the protective layer of a tunic or long cardigan?
I have to cover up the crotch and butt area completely to distract me from the fact that I'm wearing tights as pants. These tights are fleece lined and just felt so right for the rainy, cold day. I'm already dressed for my evening activities of tv, wine, and a seat right in front of the fireplace.
