WIW: Wrap Dress - again

I've kind of fallen in love all over again with this abstract print wrap dress. It's so comfortable, hides any wobbly bits and is cool for a hot day. I've paired it with a simple black belt, kept my cream croc handbag from yesterday to pick up the white/cream in the dress and popped on a white lucite bangle and my trusty black Clark's sandals.

As always, all comments/suggestions welcome.

Dress: Attitude by Jay Manuel

    This is a fab dress, bag and sandals! I live in dresses this summer comparing to last year when rather in skirts and tops...is this contagious?:-)

    This is such a FAB dress! You have such a strong and personal style and it is a great inspiration! And you seem to have a love for vintage which is totally mu cup of tea

    I love this dress on you! It looks great with the sandals. The only thing that gave me a moment's pause was the purse with this outfit - maybe the gold with the other silver things is bothering me? I don't have any rules about that myself, I am just trying to figure out what is bothering me, so take it for what it's worth. It certainly does not mar a splendid outfit.

    Such a great dress! You have the most amazing dress collection ever, I'm a bit envious. :) That vintage bag is adorable.

    This is a fierce wrap dress. Sometimes wrapdresses can be too sweet but this one has an edgy quality that I really like.
    And pairing it with the cream bag is delicious.

    Very nice!

    Your two toned cream and camel aerosoles would look great with the dress. Add a brown belt when you wear it with those shoes and bag.

    Oh thank you for the suggestion Angie! I'm always looking for new ways to style my dresses.

  • rae replied 8 years ago

    I shall never tire of this dress!!!

  • Suz replied 8 years ago

    This is a great dress. I agree that the pattern and colour combo take it out of the sweet category, which is really cool. It looks wonderful on you. I like the way you've added structure with the stiffer belt and bag.

  • goldenpig replied 8 years ago

    I love this dress on you! You wear dresses so well! Where did you get those black Clark sandals? They're really pretty too!

  • Transcona Shannon replied 8 years ago

    Natalie - I got these Clarks sandals about two years ago from a local store. They're very comfortable.

  • nancylee replied 8 years ago

    Very pretty! Isn't it great when you find a great look already living in your closet?

  • Meredith1953 replied 8 years ago

    The dress looks great with that cream bag! I really like the shape and print of that dress! I look forward to seeing you style it with the Aerosoles Angie mentioned.

  • jayne replied 8 years ago

    Good to see you reusing and posting! and love those legs! Why do they look so long and lovely here? is it the shoes?

  • ManidipaM replied 8 years ago

    Beautiful! Love that tulip-shaped overlap --- draws attention to your legs and feet very artfully. Does the print have a hint of on-trend blush pink, or am I seeing things?

  • catgirl replied 8 years ago

    I like it! The pattern reminds me of my new drop-waist dress, abstract but not overwhelmingly so.

  • Transcona Shannon replied 8 years ago

    Jayne - have no idea why my legs would look long??? Maybe my running routine is lengthening my legs (lol)!

    Manidipa - you have got one great set of eyes! Yes, there is a few splashes of blush throughout the dress.

    Love this dress! Nice to see it styled for summer, I really like the black accents (which are nicely balanced by the exposed skin). The cream purse is my favorite touch :)
