The White Aztec Dress
My newest addition to the dress section of my wardrobe! Let me introduce to you this size large (haha!) sleeveless white dress with high neckline and bold black/gold Aztec print. It blew my mind when I saw the label was Seduction (?!) Not often does that brand make such a cool dress but here’s a great example of how a dress print should be done: completely around the entire dress – none of this front only print nonsense. I was very surprised at this factor alone, normally all the sequin tops and vibrant print pieces I find are made in the lazy fashion only visible on one side. Of course that’s great if you only expect to face the public dead on at all times.
White was never my favourite colour but as I discussed in this post it is now one of my favourite colours or lack of colour… Now I’m drawn to it because of its crisp, clean appearance. White is not a colour you can often find in good condition when you thrift however this gem was brand new with the original tags on it! Not that it was an expensive dress to begin with, but still I got it for half of the retail store’s original price tag! I suspect the reason it appeared at Value Village this weekend was because of the size, which as you know I’m not a strong believer in. Sure enough I eye-balled it perfectly, any smaller and it would not go over these hips! It does however need a slight adjustment under the arms as it gives extra fabric to having a larger chest than I do. All in all a minor adjustment to make for such a cool number!
To make it a little more put-together for the office I paired it with a new cardigan and the white flats I was intending to butcher some day soon. My glue gun has not yet arrived so until then I’ll wear them as is! Jewellery for this is quite simple just a hint of gold bangles and silver earrings. Nice and sweet!
