This dress is too good not to post on the blog again. Because fashion is not and should not be disposable, all about how I remixed this dress: different shoes, jewelry, hairdo.
the Loveshackfancy story dress
I clicked on the Loveshackfancy Story dress because it deviates from the typical brand style. By that I mean, it does not bear the cottagecore floral hallmarks of the typical Loveshackfancy dress. Rather, the fabric is a classic, clean, cotton blue and white stripe. It reminded me of sun faded awnings adorning storefronts or even beach umbrellas.
The details of the Story dress are beyond. A faux pieced corset style composes the bodice. The dress has a full skirt, made of tiers alternating stripe directions. Full lining negates the need for a slip. The living prevents “overshare” via the gaps between each tier of the skirted bottom which is thickly threaded together.
Size-wise, I found the Story dress to fit small on the top. As opposed to the Loveshackfancy Oakley dress, of which I went with a smaller size and I suspect coulda shoulda woulda gone down an additional size, I bought the largest size available in the Loveshackfancy Story dress, a size 12. While I wore it with a Cosabella lace bralette in the past, I said YOLO and skipped the bra this round.
the Fry Powers turquoise and malachite necklace
I could not stop thinking about this necklace in the days after discovering it on Matches Fashion. Half turquoise and half malachite? Sign me up. I love the contrast of the two stones and I love the contrast against the Loveshackfancy Story dress. The jewelry brand is out of New York and the products, or at least this necklace, are made in the United States.
