Concrete Catwalk // Circus Scarf-print

August 27, 2012

I wish you could have seen the funny looks I was getting as I bopped down the street in Soho wearing this circus-themed hot air balloon shift dress!  When I tell people that my personal style is a head-tilting mix of vintage-inspired fun – this is exactly what I mean. :)

    wonderful dress, and you could throw on a pair of tights in December and wear it as a Christmas ornament themed dress!

    Love this outfit! Your ankle booties are gorgeous! I really like how you paired the bright, busy pattern of the dress with neutral accessories to keep the look grounded. You look awesome!

    Jessie this dress was made for you!!! It couldn’t be more perfect for your colouring, and I love the addition of boots instead of heels. You’ve got it so right AGAIN!!

    Have a great week sweetie!

    What a fun dress! I am really loving the boots with it!

    The dress is great and it’s definitely something I’d wear but choosing this trend for me all depends on the print. Plus the shape of the dress is important. I love the way you accessorized it too. The browns and golds soften it. You look fantastic!

    What a fun and unique print! And I love those booties!

    Um, I would like to think people were not giving you funny looks but rather looks of “I want that dress!” Super cute, and I don’t think it’s over the top at all. Classy and colorful, mixing two of my favorite style choices.
