I mentioned in yesterday’s post that I have had a tendency lately of opting for clothes that aren’t readily suitable for work.

Such is the case with today’s dress.
I’ve always loved slip dresses. I spent a good part of the 90s in a couple of my favorite slip dresses. This one actually looks like a vintage slip but also has some on-trend details like blue and yellow (two big color trends for spring) and white lace/sheer details. It was instant love when I saw it online. The clearance price totally sweetened the deal!

When I got the dress and tried it on, I wasn’t so sure. Did it look too much like a pretty night gown? Was it vintage cool or simply old-fashioned?
I am trying very hard to be more thoughtful with my purchases, so I spent some time mulling it over. In the end, I decided it was a keeper. My apprehension was simply that it was different than something I would normally choose. In the end, the fact that I don’t have anything else like it in my closet was actually a major draw.

I will be wearing this for date nights, fashion events, and the like. I’ll definitely be paring it with my cobalt moto jacket. And should I ever get invited to a garden party, I would wear it to that too! Ha, ha!
As for today’s photos, the weather wasn’t being very cooperative – it was pouring down rain during most of these pics. That said, the breeze was amazing. Have I said how much I love spring? 🙂
Would you wear a slip dress? How would you style a piece like this?
