talk about "how sylists do it thread" . thanks for the pictures, those are good, REALLY GOOD versions of the same dress. is the second a one piece leotard underneath? I like that version for fall and the third for winter, which makes it a three season dress, the first being spring/summer obviously.

If you guys don't stop I'll never get off this computer tonight.

you are welcome and thank you...


lucky...
the blk is a lg slv t and cropped tights...
i could never wear a unitard...
...


...

yeah- i don't usually think of clothes by season...
just as individual pieces...

obviously it's hard to wear cashmere in august
or flip flops when it snows though...
...

first i was belting it low...but then i think i decided that i like it belted higher...
have never worn it unbelted...

tourist ...your turn...

you guys look gorgeous!

tourist, you are so consistent in your style...you have a very quiet way of wearing your clothes that is really lovely.

softie, I agree, it looks fantastic belted higher, as in the second pic. I love your layering.

I have always wished for that dress in black, so I could wear it with lots of chunky silver jewelry...like Dries styled by Ann.

luckyme, you need to post pics in this thread. I want to see your dress from last fall in action!

I have this jet black beaded and layered Ann necklace from Fall 05 (another hardly ever worn item) and have always wondered whether the dress and necklace would work together, paired with some boots. Maybe I will try it out and get critique from you guys!

Lucky! I hope you have a wonderful time! If you're able, plz take pics!

You're very welcome, Adorefaith.

Tourist, it sounds lovely, imo!

I love this thread, esp. when there are new posts to be seen. I liken it to opening a treasure box.

you girls put me to shame but as promised, thanks to my perplexed but agreeable husband.

dries dress from f/w 07 (with ann d. boots)
dries top from s/s 07 (with the f/w 08 txell miras skirt I just got). I wouldn't usually put these two together but wanted to show how beautiful this skirt is, curiously it [actually] works fairly well. photos don't do it justice which is always the case with intricate details.

Is it THE sequin blouse!!?! Lovely. The Txell skirt is fantastic. So special yet versatile. That, along with a l/s top, would be a great look for the colder months. The Ann D. boots make such a provocative statement.

there's something mysterious with that skirt yes.. are the darker squares pockets?
but what is the other skirt that's paired with the cream and red print dress on the left.. is it part of the dress?

it's a one piece dress, the angle makes me look "hippy" yes? in person, it's much better.

luckyme - you look beautiful! that first dress is unbelievable ... so special, I love it very much. The pattern and colors are great. You look great in it! And the sequin top is gorgeous. All of it actually. I need to look at the skirt again, it looks really cool. I hope you post more, you carry Dries off very well.
