Flutterly Glamorous

Dress - Lulu*s, Belt, Bracelet - Vintage, Shoes - Dollhouse, Earrings - ModCloth
Aaaaand my love affair with burnt orange continues! I absolutely love the giant chiffon flutter sleeves on this dress...there's just something about a dress that sort of floats as you move that makes me think of old Hollywood glamour. I only wish the bottom of this dress was fluttering as well, but unfortunately, I had a mad attack of static cling when I took these pictures. I was rushing to Boyfriend's work dinner party, so I didn't have time to run back home to solve the problem before photos. I figured static cling photos were still better than no photos at all. Hopefully you think I'm right!

OK, back to the outfit. I love how perfect for fall this outfit turned out to be. The dress called for a belt, but I didn't want to break up the color too much, so I went for a vintage, stretchy, gold belt that did the trick and allowed me to skimp on accessories since I didn't want to overdo the gold. I have to admit though, I'm not loving my shoes in this outfit. Were you thinking that too? (I know you were, Baby K!) See, what I wanted to wear this dress with were perfect nude patent leather pumps. But of course I have been searching desperately for said shoes for months now but have been unsuccessful. So I was forced to make do with these shoes instead. I can't wait to do over this outfit once I find them. We're not too old for do-overs, right? Or take-backs? Or jinxes? Or shotgun? Or for eating an entire bag of Christmas candy instead of lunch and then feeling sick afterward? Good. I didn't think so.

I love love love this dress! It looks so great on you and that color is so amazing. You should wear that color every day (ok maybe not, since that might be a bit much). I'm a new follower :) I'd love if you'd stop by my blog some time and say hi (and follow back if you're interested).

that dress is hot on you! i also hate static, but it doesn't really show in your pictures. itsw funny, i've found that the more i wear a staticy dress or skirt, the less staticy it gets. it looks awesome with the gold belt, and i think those shoes look great with the outfit. wouldn't it be awesome if you had gold shoes? i always enjoy reading your blog because your posts always make me laugh :)

I'm having the same problem finding the perfect nude pumps. It seems like everything is too yellow or too dark on my skintone to be considered nude. Maybe I'm obsessing but I want a good match. You look lovely in that color, btw!

LOVE this outfit on you! Great color for you and ya know, I think in a pinch those shoes are acceptable! (Much better look for fall than black would have been.)
