Sunday Styles no. 30


It's finally starting to warm up around here! And with that in mind, Husband Charles and I went out for a bit of sartorial perusing yesterday afternoon...which brought us to the very fun and fashionable Kill City on Melrose Ave. A few items were purchased, but this was our favorite. (We've already discussed the idea of buying another one and maybe a secondary one in white - if you know me, you know my theory..."if you absolutely love something, get two.")

Also, I'm jonesin' to get back to that shop! I have my eye on a leather-sleeved t-shirt and a pair of crazy garter leggings. The staff is so friendly & helpful and the shop so nicely laid out, you kinda wanna sit around there all day trying things on and drooling all over their jewelry. Good music too...which is a must for long shopping stints. How many times have you walked into a store that's blaring dance music and walked right out? (Countless times for yours truly.)

Back to the dress, I've been looking for a summery, yet comfy-casual little number that satisfies my need for a long dress, but didn't look like a moo moo (they often do on me.) AND I've decided to embrace the whole cut-out phenomenon.

Yes, I know. It's been around for a while, but I could never find one that fit just right until now. Most of them have the waist-side cut-out and were cut for ladies with a bigger waist to hip ratio (which, to be honest, I wish I had because who doesn't wanna look like a woman?) Anyway, thanks to the tailoring on this guy, I'm able to enjoy the cut-outs without looking like I'm wearing something ill-fitting. I also like the feeling of being covered up, yet exposed to a nice, much-needed breeze in the warmer temps.

Works well with jackets, flats, sandals, cardigans, hair up or down...basically ANYTHING in my wardrobe...and that, my friends, is a definite win.

Now, back to trying to concentrate on not doing much of anything but enjoying the weather and spending time with the ones I love. Hope you're all having a fantastic holiday weekend! xo!
