After the little tête-à-tête between my muses the other day, I was able to create several outfits. Here is another favorite ‘compromise” that came forward from this friendly fray.
The long kimono dress I found several months ago at Zara has been re-styled more towards a tunic look. I have put these over a wide leg pair of soft white tuxedo pants from designer Doo-ri. I purchased these pants in September of 2011 from Shopbop. They were heavily discounted as they were introduced in the Spring Collection earlier that year. At the time, the low waist/rise was very popular. The waist is not as low as some of the more trendy pieces of that time, but I still prefer to wear pants with a lower waist with longer tops/sweaters/tunics. They are so beautifully made and I do love wide leg pants.
The black butterfly scarf, featured in my post the other day, is being featured in this outfit as well. The jewelry also remains the same. I wore these outfits to different occasions and the French Bulldog ring from Shein was a big hit with everyone. The ladies, both young and old, all tried it on. When I told them it was only 3.99 USD…they took out their pens from their handbags and took the paper napkins from under their drinks to write down SHEIN….FRENCH BULLDOG RING. In a fit of self-promotion, I suggested they check out my blog and that would give them a direct link. All except a few of the younger ladies said, “blog” what is that… Oh dear!
