Dressin' up to Kill


I'm sure most of you have seen the rest of the Delightful Dozen style this dress. ModCloth was lovely enough to send the Delighful Dozen the Dynamite dress, and we were all going to post on the same day, but my dress decided to take a little jaunt to other places before I found it. It turned out that they had sent it to an address that had the last two numbers switched! So I ran across the street to the apartment complex there and found that address and there it was! It had been sitting on this person's porch for 20 days! I couldn't believe it was still there, they must not use their front door! It was all quite funny to me but I'm glad I finally found it and got to style it!

I love it as a sundress, but it also seemed like it would be really easy to try as a skirt, so I folded under the top and tried it out, and I really like it as a skirt too! I feel like this dress would be really fun to wear to maybe a concert or on a cool date (neither of which I have had the pleasure of attending in many months...). It could be a sweet sundress, but I wanted to kind of rock-and-roll it up by adding the lace and studded belt.

I love it as a dress. The spike belt with it reminds of me of the look Carrie rocked on the STC movie...which I loved, also. I'm really excited to see your red hair in an outfit post!

I love (even lurve!) the sweet and rockin' contrast between the floral and lace/studs. The backdrop really fits, and I love how the colors pop. Great usage of folding the dress down as a skirt, hurray for innovation. :)

I love the studs and lace combo with this dress

Lisa said...

I think I love the dress more as a skirt - what a spring-y burst of color with the more rock 'n roll black lace et al.

Sara Lynn said...

I love this dress on you guys! You all look great :)

Sabrina said...

I love both ways you styled it. Very creative trying it out as a skirt! the lace adds some vintage inspiration to the looks.

Beautiful!

Oh, I LOVE your take on it! The rock-n-roll of it is definitely different & super cool!

The dress has an abstract pattern, so it's perfect! And, the colors!

Awesome as a skirt, too! :)

Oh wow, I love the way you styled this! So cool! It looks fantastic both ways, I would have never thought to pair a sundress like this with black lace & studs, but you've pulled it off beautifully!

Lacey Starr said...

I've really enjoyed seeing these delightful dozen posts and I especially like that you showed the transformation of the dress to skirt.

I love the dress with the black lace and studded belt. What a great look!

WILDasaMINK said...

oooh I like what you did w/your dress-you took it in such a rock n roll direction, very different from the few others I've looked at. And who are these people that live in the apt. complex across the street? How does a package just sit there for 20 days? Are you sure they're not dead inside that apt.???
And could you please pull out some of those high school pictures you mentioned (or was that mentioned in the post after this one? can't remember...i've been reading thru some of your posts because I haven't stopped by in a while, so I'm getting reacquainted if you will.) But yes, seeing some highschool pics would be fun!

girlnextdoorfashion said...

oh wow this is amazing!!
I've thought of wearing dresses as tops under bandage skirts, but never a dress as a skirt!! this looks fabulous!!
i also love the lace underneath- i'll definitely be trying that with my summer dresses until it gets warmer.
also, love the belt!! i might have to get myself one of those.
wow, so inspired. thank you!!
