Today is the debut of my INC Bailey 44-inspired dress that I picked up at The Bay back in August in anticipation of fall. I must admit that I actually prefer the quality of the INC version as opposed to the Anthro version - the fabric is a bit more substantial and the lining a little better in that it works well with tights and hose.
In order to de-bombshell the dress for work, I topped it with my lace INC moto (may as well have an INC day, right?). I then added black micro fishnets (bare legged weather is DONE) and my black riding boots - one, because I wanted a non heel day and two, because these boots further de-bombshell the dress).
For my handbag I chose more texture with my cobalt/cream/black quilted handbag. Plus the cream in the handbag helps to pick up the white stripe in the dress. When I head out the door, I'll top it all with my navy trench.
So what do you think? Does it all work together? Is there too much texture with the double quilt and the lace? As always, all comments/suggestions welcome.
Jacket and dress: INC
Handbag: Danier Leather
P.S. This dress also works with my black leather Danier blazer, my white leather Danier jacket and my Spiegel jacket…whoo hoo!!!
